Are you sick and tired of your unwanted hair? Below, we've answered some of the commonly asked questions about laser hair removal, which can help make shaving and waxing a thing of the past.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a simple yet effective treatment for getting rid of unwanted hair on the face and body. It works through the use of a laser, which produces wavelengths of light and heat energy. During the treatment, this laser is focused on the areas of the body where you have unwanted hair. From there, your hair follicles and the melanin they contain will absorb the laser energy, which will damage them to the point where they will no longer be able to produce hair.
Is the Treatment Safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is completely safe. The wavelengths of energy that the laser produces don’t affect any surrounding tissue or cells. It specifically targets the melanin in the hair follicles.
Can It Be Used On All Skin Types?
It is no longer true that laser hair removal only works on one type of skin tone. Those with light skin or dark skin can both undergo laser hair removal. However, please note that results do vary based on a number of factors.
What Areas of the Body Can It Treat?
Laser hair removal is able to treat unwanted hair on your legs, chin, lip, abdomen, back, thighs, buttocks, neck, chest, arms, and underarms, among other areas.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of laser hair removal treatments you will need depends on the amount of hair you want to get rid of, the specific area of the body being treated, and your desired results. Usually, our patients require multiple treatments to achieve the best results.
How Long Does a Treatment Take?
The length of your laser hair removal treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated and other factors. Unwanted hair on your lip can be treated within minutes while your back area may take longer.
