Laser hair removal is the most modern method of removing unwanted hair for longer and even indefinite periods of time. It is the only proven method available for easily removing hair from mass areas of the body, including back, chest, legs and face. Laser hair removal is effective, precise and cost efficient.
In the past, hair removal was limited to a variety of treatments that were both painful and temporary. Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved process of permanently reducing or eliminating unwanted hair on almost any part of the body.
Laser hair removal uses a low-energy laser which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The laser pinpoints the root of the hair and removes the hair follicle from the body. The process takes anywhere from several minutes to several hours, depending on the area of the body involved. Approximately three to six treatments are necessary, although some people do require more.
Although the process is precise and beneficial, it can be irritating to the skin. As a result, it is important that numbing cream is applied to the area, and a cooling device is utilized throughout the procedure. These cooling systems also prevent the laser beam from causing harm or discomfort to the surrounding skin. Afterward, the skin may be slightly to significantly pink subsequent to the treatment.
During your office consultation you will be provided with a detailed plan of the treatments that will benefit you most.
