Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair, be it from a condition that causes excess hair growth or just the desire for a new look. Most individuals will require a series of procedures over time which will result in the removal of the unwanted hair. Some individuals will see long term hair removal which may last for many years. Others may require maintenance procedures over time to maintain their degree of hair loss. It is truly impossible to determine in advance who will require how many procedures and how long the hair will remain gone. As stated above, laser hair removal works best in those with dark hairs on lighter skin, however newer technologies and newer lasers and light sources have made the procedure effective on those with other hair color.
The lasr uses gentle beams of light to get rid of hair. The hair’s melanin (the part that gives hair its color) absorbs the light, which turns into heat. The heat damages the follicle (but not the surrounding skin or tissue) and prevents it from producing more hair. And since you don’t have to take time off to recover, you can get back to your normal activities immediately. Laser hair removal usually requires three to seven procedures and works best for people with light skin and dark hair..
Laser hair removal can treat hair anywhere on the face or body. Women often treat the bikini area, chin, upper lip, underarms and legs. Men can safely eliminate unwanted hair from their beard area, back, chest, abdomen and shoulders.
