Unwanted body hair can be a constant problem because it requires regular maintenance to keep it away. Within 24 hours after shaving, you may need to do it again. With waxing, you have a big, sticky mess at home or a costly spa treatment, and this has to be repeated once a month. Laser hair removal is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the U.S. because it reduces unwanted hair so you have smooth skin for a long time.
Lasers have been used for decades to treat many skin, hair and nail conditions, and dermatologists have made many advances in laser technology used in medicine. Laser hair removal is one advancement that allows people to have unwanted body hair removed, in some cases permanently.
Laser hair removal used to only be used on people with light skin and dark hair, but today, lasers have been developed that remove hair from virtually any shade of skin. There is no guarantee that all hair will be completely removed. Some hair may grow back months after the treatment, but it will be thin and pale, which is a good thing. At that time, you can have a maintenance treatment. Our dermatologist will tell you when it is safe to have another treatment.
To get the best results from laser hair removal, you need a series of treatment sessions that are spaced a set amount of time apart. Once you have achieved your goal, you can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin for a relatively long time.
During the treatment, the laser emits heat energy in the form of light waves. These are aimed at the hair follicles, which absorb the light as heat and are safely destroyed so that they are not able to grow hair again.
Hair grows in three stages, which are the growing stage, the intermediate stage and the shedding stage. Laser hair removal only works when the targeted hair is in the growing stage. This is why it takes a series of treatments to achieve optimum results.
Laser hair removal is the best solution for people who want to avoid the relentless pursuit of clear, hairless skin. You may stay hair-free for months or years, depending on the situation.
