The most popular forms of hair removal are shaving and waxing. However, when you talk to people about shaving or waxing, most have a negative opinion of these forms of hair removal. The complaints that people have about shaving and waxing are universal. Shaving and waxing hurt, they only provide a temporary fix, and at the end of the day, the results from shaving and waxing often leave your skin in bad shape. Many people are interested in finding a different way of getting rid of unwanted hair. They are surprised to learn about the powerful results that laser hair removal produces.
A Closer Look at Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an effective way of removing unwanted hair with long-term results. This is something that has been backed up by clinical studies, as well as by the FDA. Laser hair removal is precise. It’s designed to target hair follicles without affecting the skin. Laser hair removal produces results that can last for many years.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Your hair grows in three stages. Laser hair removal produces the best results when your hair is attacked during the first stage. The first stage is when your hair is actively growing. During the procedure, a laser light is directed toward the hair follicles you want to treat. The laser energy becomes heat energy. It is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle, so it increases the temperature of the hair follicle to a point where it is damaged and no longer able to produce more hair.
Since your hair grows in phases, you will need multiple hair removal treatments in order to effectively remove the hair from a particular area. Once you finish the treatment routine, any hair that does grow back is going to be very fine and light in color, which is a good thing. Maintenance treatments are simple and convenient.
One of the most exciting things about laser hair removal is that there is virtually no recovery time. You are able to walk out of our office and go back to most all of your everyday activities.
