We read and hear about numerous options for replacing hair that’s lost but what about those of us wanting to get rid of hair growth in unwanted places?
In this issue, we’ll talk about laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
During this non-surgical procedure, a highly concentrated light will be used to penetrate the hair follicles in the area you want treated. The root of the hair absorbs the heat from the laser – effectively killing the hair follicle so that further growth in inhibited.
What’s the procedure for laser hair removal?
This is a fairly quick and relatively painless procedure.
Once the laser is fixed on the area to be treated, there may be some mild discomfort that lasts for just a few seconds as the heat is absorbed. Because each laser pulse takes merely a fraction of a second, it can treat many hairs simultaneously.
Potential side effects are minimal. There may be mild swelling around the treated hair follicles and slight changes in pigment if you have darker skin.
Because it’s unsafe to remove all unwanted hair in a particular area, you may need 3-5 total treatments before the area is completely hair-free.
