Laser hair removal procedures have become increasingly common in recent years because of their ability to offer a convenient solution to the dreaded routine of removing unwanted hair. Think of how much time you’ll save performing this tedious activity and spending more time doing things that you actually enjoy. If you are considering undergoing a laser treatment, you probably have some questions in mind.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment in which we use a laser to precisely target hair follicles for destruction. The melanin, or pigment-producing part of your hair, absorbs the laser energy, destroying the hair follicle and preventing it from growing hair in the future.
What are the Benefits of This Procedure?
The procedure is extremely convenient and does not take long to perform. Multiple hair follicles can be targeted simultaneously. In addition, the laser focuses only on the treatment area, leaving the surrounding skin tissue unaffected.
What is the Treatment Like?
Before your laser hair removal treatment begins, we may shave down the hair in the treatment area. You and the technician will likely be wearing protective eyewear during the procedure. The technician will carefully adjust the laser equipment according to your individual needs. They will then direct precision laser energy into the hair follicles to destroy them and prevent them from growing unwanted hair in the treatment area.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You will need a number of hair removal treatments because of the way that individual hairs grow in cycles. Each individual hair follicle is in a particular growth phase at any given time. Hair follicles that happen to be in a dormant phase at the time of treatment are not affected since they do not have a hair present for laser targeting. By undergoing multiple treatments, we are ensuring that we catch every hair follicle in its growth phase with a hair available for targeting. In most cases, a series of treatment sessions is needed to deliver the desired results.
