What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment designed to reduce and eliminate small and large amounts of hair from the face and body.
It is one of the most-requested aesthetic procedures for women and men and can be used on the bikini line, underarms, chest, back, arms, legs, abdomen, shoulders, neck, lip, chin, and sideburns.
How Can You Reduce Unwanted Hair with Laser Hair Removal?
In order to reduce unwanted hair with laser hair removal, you should research and select a skilled and experienced provider.
Following a consultation, you will learn if you are a good candidate for the procedure – it’s typically well-suited to dark, coarse hair and is not recommended for gray or white hair or peach fuzz.
The treatment is performed in an office setting and targets melanin in hair follicles with concentrated beams of light.
As this energy is absorbed by the chromophore, it is converted to heat and destroys the follicle. The result is slower and finer regrowth.
What Can Patients Expect from the Procedure?
Prior to the procedure, skin will be cleansed and possibly numbed with ice or a topical anesthetic. You will then be given a pair of protective goggles to wear.
Next, a handheld device will be used to deliver focused beams of light to a specific area of the face or body.
You may feel a light snapping sensation while the laser applies energy as a series of pulses, but most patients find the process to be very tolerable and quick.
In fact, depending on location and size of the treatment site, laser hair removal can take just 5-60 minutes.
Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal has a very high rate of success and patient satisfaction. Results can be noted within two-to-three weeks of the first treatment and will continue to improve over six-to-eight sessions, spaced six-to-eight weeks apart.
Upon completion of a laser hair removal series, patients can achieve up to a 60-90% reduction in hair in the targeted area.
