Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is actually a permanent hair reduction as most people will need a touch-up treatment especially on large areas. The hair that grows back after having gone through a series of Laser treatment is normally finer and sparser. This method of hair reduction has become popular because of its speed and efficacy.

Laser hair reduction works by passing a light beam through the skin. The laser targets dark pigment, called melanin, in hair. When the light beam hits the hair follicle, the intense heat damages/destroys the hair follicle. Laser works best with dark coarse hair where light skin and dark hair are a perfect combination for a successful treatment. The newer lasers are now able to target dark hair even in patients with dark skin. Laser Hair Removal does not always work for white, blonde, light brown or light red hair.

This treatment is not painful but can be uncomfortable. A hand held laser instrument is pressed to your skin. The surface of the skin is kept cool with chilled gel or contact cooling through a window cooled by circulating water or cold air. The treatment last 10 minutes to an hour depending on the area you are getting laser treated. You will need a series of 6 to 8 treatments, four to six weeks apart.

It is very important that you go to a Licensed and Certified Professional who has knowledge and experience in Laser Hair Removal. This is a medical treatment and if not done properly can result in severe burns and scarring.
