Unwanted hair is one of the top beauty concerns for both women and men. Traditional methods of hair removal, like shaving, plucking orlaser hair removal waxing are very temporary solutions that require constant maintenance, which is why many patients opt for laser hair removal. Learn how you can get ready for the beach season ahead with a laser treatment to remove unwanted hair at Penstein Dermatology in New York, NY.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by eliminating the hair follicle so that it doesn't grow back as quickly as it does when you shave or wax. The follicles are zapped with strong pulses of light, which are delivered by a laser wand. The best candidates are people with very dark hair because the laser is designed to target dark pigments. The results often last for a few months or longer.
