What is Laser Hair Removal?
Hair shafts grow out of follicles in the skin. Hair shafts have pigmented cells called melanocytes that give them their signature color. Laser hair removal works by administering light energy that is attracted to certain pigments like melanin. This light energy then travels down the hair shaft and into the follicle where it generates heat and damages the hair growth mechanisms there. Over time, this prevents the body from creating more hair.
Why Should I Get Laser Hair Removal?
If you’re a busy person, it can be time-consuming to shave, pluck, wax, or epilate unwanted hair on your face or body. Multiplied over the course of a lifetime, that’s a lot of time spent removing hair! Laser hair removal can make it much easier and less time-intensive to remove hair – or it can prevent the need for it altogether.
Many patients opt for laser hair removal in the following areas:
- Bikini area
Men and women opt for laser hair removal because it’s an effective way to prevent hair growth and save time and money on hair removal.
How Long Will Laser Hair Removal Last?
This can depend on a few factors like the amount of hair you have, its color, and the number of treatments you undergo. Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments and if you go through with your whole treatment package, you can achieve permanent results. You may need to undergo maintenance treatments depending on your anatomy. Some hair colors and skin tones are less responsive to laser hair removal and require specialized technology. Your technician can give you the best idea of what kind of results you can expect and recommend your best options from our variety of laser hair removal platforms.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
There are many myths about laser hair removal and whether it’s painful. The truth is, laser hair removal is pain free when you seek out an experienced, reputable provider. Laser hair removal feels more like a small rubber band “snap” against the skin but is not painful. If you’re concerned about discomfort, our team can supply a topical numbing cream before your treatment.
