Laser hair removal is becoming an increasingly popular method of getting rid of that unwanted hair from those unwanted places, helping to free millions of people from a lifetime doomed to waxing and shaving. This non-surgical procedure is a convenient and non-invasive answer to unwanted hair growth . . . bring it on.

Laser Hair Removal – The Technique

The exact technique used for laser hair removal kinda’ depends on the area which is gonna’ be treated. This can take anywhere from a few minutes (eyebrows) to a few hours (use your imagination). Generally it involves utilizing a low energy laser beam which passes through the skin where it finds itself attracted to the hair pigment. The energy is then passed along the shaft of hair and absorbed by the hair follicles, disabling the follicle deeper beneath the layers of skin. There’s usually no need for anesthesia and only a minimal amount of pain or discomfort is experienced by the patient during laser hair removal.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

  • Laser hair removal is gentle, non-invasive and can significantly reduce undesirable hair growth from just about anywhere on the body.
  • Laser hair removal can effectively treat quite large areas, as this procedure doesn’t disable each hair individual, but more than one hair each time.
  • Laser hair removal can even help to make complexion and skin color more uniform than it was before the treatment.
  • Laser hair removal involves the minimum amount of discomfort.
  • Laser hair removal is a great alternative to waxing, shaving, bleaching and electrolysis
  • Laser hair removal doesn’t involve any down time at all.

Laser Hair Removal – Other Stuff to Think About

  • Laser hair removal needs multiple sessions for best results, it only affects the actively growing hair, and not all hair follicles are active at the same time.
  • Laser hair removal might cause some mild discomfort including redness of the skin and/or swelling around the hair.
  • Any areas which have been treated with laser hair removal must be protected with sunscreen before exposure to the sun.
  • Some hair is more receptive to laser hair removal than others – blonde, white or gray hair is generally less responsive because of the lack of pigment found in the hair.
