Laser Hair Removal – the Permanent Solution to Unwanted Hair
Unwanted facial and body hair is a problem that affects both men and women. In the past people have used creams, shaving, plucking and other painful and questionable methods to try to remove unwanted hair. Today, laser hair removal can provide long term reduction of unwanted hair, saving you the time, money and aggravation of less effective methods.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Lasers and light sources are also the safest treatments for removing unwanted hair.
Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal
Side effects of laser hair removal are minimal. Lasers send concentrated beams of light directly through the skin, where they are absorbed by the melanin (dark) pigment present in the hair follicle shafts. The heat destroys the follicles, rendering them unable to grow hair.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Unlike tape and plucking, laser hair removal treatments are not painful. Alexandrite, diode, and Nd:YAG lasers are ideal for permanent hair removal treatments. Most lasers incorporate a cooling device that reduces discomfort while protecting the top layer of skin.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Because of the hair growth cycle, a series of treatments is usually necessary for maximum effectiveness in hair reduction.
