Unwanted hair can cause worry and stress. After all, it’s not easy to get rid of it. Some areas are too sensitive for plucking or constant shaving. Laser hair removal is highly popular because the procedure almost guarantees no future hair growth in the targeted areas. Unlike plucking, which can cause damage and even scarring, laser hair treatments target specific follicles and leave the adjacent tissues unaffected. A series of laser treatments can permanently destroy up to 100 percent of the follicles in a given surface area of skin to remove unwanted hair.
The procedure is non-invasive, and there’s no downtime. If you’re wondering about alternatives to waxing and shaving, especially in areas such as your face, arms, and along bikini lines, this treatment may be just what you’re seeking.
Targeted Areas For Treatment
Using a laser to destroy active hair follicles may sound at first a bit scary, but remember that the type of instrument used has been specially designed to deliver just the right amount of energy and the correct wavelength. Follicles are darker in tone when they are in an active phase, and this makes it easy for us to find them and damage them with the proper wavelength of laser energy.
We can remove unwanted hair from the cheeks, upper lip area, chin, and even the eyebrow area. Larger areas such as the forearm, leg, or bikini line can be treated in a series of appointments. Remember, only active follicles can be treated, so we will have to schedule several appointments to ensure that all of the unwanted hair is removed.
Simple Treatment Procedure
The laser is calibrated to account for the actual color tone of the pigmented follicles. The pulse of energy lasts only a few milliseconds, and the beam is pixilated so that a number of follicles can be targeted at once. The energy absorption damages the follicle.
After four or five laser hair removal treatments, just about all of the follicles have been damaged. The body will not produce another follicle in the same area where the hairs have been removed. Today’s laser instruments can be finely tuned to deliver a single wavelength that will be absorbed by a specific follicle color tone, so the procedure is suitable even if you have lighter hairs.
Once the follicles are gone, your skin will be smooth and hair-free. This means no more waxing, plucking, or twice-per-week shaving in your future. Hair may still grow back, but it should be significantly less.
