What Is Laser Hair Removal?
This is the perfect procedure for someone who is not happy with constant shaving, tweezing, or waxing. Getting this treatment leaves your skin smoother for far longer than shaving and without the razor bumps that we all have experienced.
How Does It Work?
Lasers safely remove unwanted facial and body hair by selectively targeting melanin (pigment) inside the hair follicle. This works by generating energy in the form of heat at the root of the hair and destroying the hair without damaging the skin. Many patients want laser hair removal because the procedure is so quick and painless.
Does It Hurt?
Most individuals experience no more than a slight stinging sensation as the laser pulses are applied. Some parts of the body do tend to be more sensitive than others and a topical numbing cream is available.
This is a safe and well-tolerated procedure by most people. However, there are risks involved, such as minor burns or temporary pigmentation. The risks of laser treatments are significantly decreased when care is provided by trained professionals with specific experience conducting laser hair removal.
