What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal; directs heat and light energy to the follicles beneath your skin. The laser renders these follicles unable to produce hair. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular and effective cosmetic treatments.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser energy penetrates your outer layer of skin and directs it to the pigment-producing follicles below. The heat energy destroys the follicles so they can no longer produce hair.
Hair goes through several developmental phases, and laser hair removal is most effective in the growth stage. All hairs are not in the same phase simultaneously, so several treatment sessions are needed to achieve smooth skin.
What is the process of getting laser hair removal?
During your laser hair removal session, expect some heat, tingling, and prickling. Most people tolerate the treatment well. After the treatment, you will have some redness, swelling, or discomfort lasting several hours. Over the course of your sessions, hair grows back thinner, sparser, and lighter in color. Eventually, hair won't grow much at all. Some people require maintenance treatments every year or two to maintain smooth skin.
