Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair. It is safe enough to be used on virtually any part of the body, including more sensitive areas such as the face, underarms, and bikini line.
How does it work?
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.
How many treatments are needed?
Laser Hair Removal packages are sold in a series of 4 treatments, and individual treatments can be purchased for touch ups.
Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually results in permanent hair reduction, not complete removal. Multiple treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments are recommended.
Am I a good candidate?
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.
