What Does Laser Hair Removal Involve?
During laser hair removal, the laser passes through the skin to destroy the hair follicles below and, thus, stop hair from growing in a given area. It works by targeting the melanin or pigment in the hair.
Laser hair removal can be done on almost any part of the body except near the eyes. Most clients will need a series of sessions in Barrie or Midland to get the desired results, for the laser only affects hair that is actively growing. Only 20 to 30 percent of the body’s hair is actively growing at any time while the remainder is either dormant or preparing to shed. Depending on the treatment area, clients will have to wait weeks to months between treatments.
Our team in Barrie will make sure to provide you with aftercare instructions for optimal healing and results. Laser hair removal does increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so the client should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun for a set amount of time. If they need to go outside, they should wear sunscreen and take extra precaution to avoid the sun.
Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The ideal candidate for laser hair removal needs to be in good overall health with clear skin. People with certain conditions may, therefore, not be good candidates. During a consultation at Laser Health Works in Barrie or Midland, you can learn more information about your candidacy for laser hair removal.
