Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicles. It had been performed experimentally for about twenty years before becoming commercially available in the mid-1990s. It is a great way to stop hair from growing in unwanted places. Laser hair removal works by targeting your hair follicles through a series of treatments. The laser machines emit light beams that are very precise. The dark color hair follicles under skin absorb the intense light energy which turns into heat that builds up and destroys those follicles. The result is permanent hair reduction.
Your hair follicles are not all active at once and laser treatments only work on hair that is actively growing, therefore multiple treatments are needed to permanently reduce hair growth and results may vary in patients.
Laser treatments offer a wide variety of advantages such as:
• treatments are fast and convenient which allow getting rid of hair on small areas such as face or underarms to be done in a few minutes so it saves a lot of your time
• No more ingrown hair
• No more concerns about skin irritation or razor burn from shaving
