Laser Hair Removal Is a Safe, Permanent Solution to Unwanted Body Hair

Many people experience unwanted and unsightly body hair. Traditional methods of hair removal, such as shaving, tweezing and waxing, can be tedious and time consuming, yet only provide temporary relief from unwanted hair. Laser hair reduction is a safe, permanent solution to unwanted body hair. Laser is one of the most popular methods to reduce hair on all areas, including face, legs and arms. Laser hair removal works by targeting pigment in the hair follicle and using light energy to destroy it. The light energy is delivered by a hand piece that is constantly cooled to maintain the skin’s safety and comfort. The procedure is performed by a certified medical practitioner and is considered non-invasive. A numbing topical may be applied to support comfort during the treatment.

After an initial consultation, the aesthetician will determine which type of laser should be used based on the area being treated and your skin tone and sensitivity. The number of sessions required for optimum results will vary from patient to patient. Your medical history will also be reviewed because certain medicines can have an effect on your treatment.

During treatment, the specialist will gently place the handheld device over the targeted area of unwanted hair and pulses of light are emitted from the hand piece. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle under the surface of the skin and the heat is converted to energy that disables the follicle. A cooling function on the hand piece keeps the skin temperature safe and comfortable for your entire treatment.

In clinical trials, laser energy has been shown to permanently disable hundreds of unwanted hair follicles with no adverse effects on the surrounding skin. When compared with shaved and epilated control sites, laser-treated skin showed significantly less hair growth at six months for all fluences tested.

Laser hair reduction is the most effective method to reduce unwanted hair on all parts of the body, including face, legs and arms. This procedure has a proven track record and is performed by highly trained and certified professionals. During your consultation, we will discuss your expectations for the treatment and answer any questions that you may have.

In addition to being a quick and convenient method of permanent hair reduction, laser treatments offer several other benefits to the skin. These include the slowing down of hair regrowth, the improvement in the appearance of skin texture and the decrease in finer, darker hairs that can be caused by constant plucking or shaving. In addition, the laser light can help to treat rosacea, ingrown hairs and dark patches due to hyperpigmentation. It can also be used to help reduce the look of stretch marks. Laser treatments can be a great alternative to electrolysis, which is another permanent hair reduction option that is often painful and time consuming.
