Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair.
During laser hair removal, the laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hair. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn’t result in permanent hair reduction not complete removal. Multiple treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments are recommended. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types. Laser Hair Removal packages are sold in a series of 4 treatments, and individual treatments can be purchased for touch ups. Patients need to avoid sun exposure 4 weeks before of their treatment series.
