One of the top cosmetic procedures is laser hair removal, and if you’re sick and tired of shaving, waxing and tweezing, then you might want to consider this treatment option. This procedure has the potential to eliminate the need to purchase shaving supplies and waxing equipment.
Why Laser Hair Removal Works
Our bodies contain melanin, which is a pigment that is responsible for giving color to our eyes, hair and skin. Laser hair removal is based on melanin’s ability to absorb energy and uses a special laser system to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair.
The hair on your body contains melanin, and when the hair is exposed to the laser light, it absorbs the light and converts it into heat. This ultimately disables the hair follicles, leading to smooth, hair-free skin in the treated area.
Getting Rid of Your Unwanted Hair
The thought of treating your unwanted hair with laser light might seem a bit odd, but the treatment is much safer than you might think. This treatment has an excellent safety record, and it can be used to remove unwanted hair from almost any body part.
The main purpose of this procedure is to stop hair growth, and to accomplish this goal, it must do some controlled damage to your hair follicles. The treatment aims to disable your hair follicles, which stops hair from growing out of the follicle for a long time. Unwanted hair is treated with short pulses of light because the pulses prevent damage to surrounding cells.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
The areas that are commonly treated with laser hair removal are the chest, abdomen, legs, arms, neck and back. With that being said, it can be used on many other areas where you are dealing with unwanted hair. For the best results, you’ll likely need a series of treatments at our office. However, the treatments are very convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
