Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that utilizes a laser to remove unwanted hair. During your treatment, a laser beam will pass through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser then damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it does not always guarantee permanent hair removal. However, it will typically take several laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period with periodic maintenance needed.
With laser hair removal you can eliminate unwanted hair in nearly any area. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. Some of the benefits of laser hair removal include:
• Precision – dark, coarse hair can be selectively targeted without damaging surrounding skin.
• Speed – each pulse of the laser takes only a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs at the same time.
• Predictability – after an average of three to five sessions, approximately 90% of patients will experience permanent hair loss.
On average, 4-8 laser hair removal treatments are needed for maximum results, and are also performed once every 4-8 weeks depending on the area of the body being treated. If you have any questions about the procedure, please don't hesitate to call our office.
