What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses pulsed laser energy to remove unwanted hair from a targeted area of the body while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. The laser targets melanin (pigment) in the hair follicle. As the laser fires, it rapidly and efficiently heats the hair follicle destroying hair that is in the active phase of growth and prevents re-growth.
Laser hair removal can be performed on almost all areas of the body. The most common areas for treatments are the chin, upper lip, chest, underarms, back, bikini line and legs. Laser hair removal treatments are available for both women and men.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Most clients experience little to no discomfort during laser hair removal treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Because laser hair removal targets melanin (pigment), the best candidates for laser hair removal have dark hair. Conversely, those with light blond, red, gray or white hair are typically not good candidates. Recent technological advances have made laser hair removal for those with dark skin more successful, while techniques for using lasers to effectively remove light-colored hair are still being investigated.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Hair growth takes place cyclically, in three stages. The most effective laser hair removal takes place during the anagen (full-growth) stage because the hair follicles in this stage are susceptible to laser energy. Our clients will experience a significant reduction in hair growth in the first couple of treatments, but because all hair is not in the same stage of growth it will typically take between three and six treatments, spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart to achieve permanent hair reduction.
How Long Do Laser Hair Treatments Take?
The exact length of treatment depends on the texture of the client’s hair and the location from which it is being removed. Treatments typically take 10-15 minutes for small to medium areas and 15-30 minutes for large to extra large areas.
