Well, laser hair removal is a permanent method of reducing, or even removing, unwanted hair in virtually all areas of the body so you no longer have to shave, wax, or depilate any longer.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Achieve a hair-free look with our advanced laser hair removal technology. It works by using a concentrated beam of high energy and targeting the roots of the hair, not just the hair itself. Energy is absorbed by the melanin inside the hair follicles, destroying them from the inside out.
So what happens when hair follicles are destroyed?
Think of hair as plants and the follicle as the soil. When you destroy the soil, plants don’t grow back. In the same way, as the follicles are destroyed, hair is unable to grow. So you’re left with smooth skin – completely free from unwanted hair.
But because hair growth isn’t the same across the entire body, you can never get rid of all your hair in a single session. That is why it takes multiple treatment sessions to get the best results. Different laser hair removal areas are also treated differently, depending on the area treated.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
While laser hair removal does involve the use of high-energy beams, it is generally safe. Laser treatments cause no long-term effects or conditions on the skin. There is also no risk of something major or potentially life-threatening occurring.
Although the entire procedure is indeed safe, there are still a few minor side effects to the treatment that you can expect. These include:
- Redness and irritation
- Minor swelling
- Changes in skin color
- Skin infection
Side effects that may occur after treatment are only temporary and will go away on their own after a few days. If symptoms do persist, consult your dermatologist immediately. They can prescribe creams, ointments, or other agents that can help ease the symptoms.
To be on the safe side, a properly-licensed medical professional will take all necessary precautions to mitigate the effects of the laser on your skin. This includes the use of proper protective equipment over the eyes, the use of aloe or a cool compress on heated areas, and numbing agents to reduce pain or discomfort.
Laser hair removal is so safe, it can be done on any area of the body. These areas can be subdivided into three groups: small areas, medium areas, and larger areas. The length of the procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area.
