Permanent Hair Reduction
Laser hair removal has made life easier, smoother and simpler for millions of people. It has revolutionized the treatment of unwanted facial and body hair.
Laser Hair Removal Popular With Both Men and Women
Laser hair removal frees you from razors, painful waxing, tedious plucking and costly electrolysis. Women often treat the bikini area, armpits, upper lip and chin, neck and and legs. Men often want hair removed from their backs, shoulders or chests.
Laser hair removal works by using light energy and heat to penetrate hair follicles, disabling and then destroying them at the root while preserving surrounding skin. The hair removal process begins as the laser beam finds the hair follicle it is targeting by first finding the melanin (dark color of the hair). Melanin is also in the skin, making laser hair removal possible but more complex for tanned or darker skin people. Likewise, blonde, red and grey hairs are more difficult to treat simply because the laser is attracted to the darker hair colors.
Best Results Achieved With Multiple Treatments
Hair naturally grows in cycles and laser hair removal is most effective when it is in the anagen phase (i.e. hair follicle is actively growing). Because at any point in time only 85% or our hair is in the anagen phase multiple treatments are needed to effectively reach hair follicles for permanent hair reduction.
Treatments usually take less than an hour and require no downtime. Patients describe the treatment as feeling as if a rubber band is snapping your skin and most don’t require anesthetics. Results appear after the first treatment with continued benefits visible with each additional treatment.
