Unwanted hair is a real problem for many people. It can make you self-conscious and limit the choice of clothes you wear. It can also be a pain to deal with - endless plucking and shaving, and still the problem keeps on coming back. Even electrolysis proves time-consuming, expensive and uncomfortable. Thank goodness for laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is widely regarded as the safest and most effective form of hair removal on the market today. Treatments are highly effective, safe and fast. It uses a simple beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle, disabling the follicle without affecting the surrounding skin.

 

A course of four to six treatments is usually required with the procedure suitable for men and women and all areas of the body. After that, a maintenance laser hair removal treatment once or twice a year is often all that's required to keep the problem at bay and eliminate the need for shaving and waxing.

 

Women frequently want treatment on their bikini area, underarms, legs and upper lip. Men often ask for help with their back and shoulders and also their neck area where shaving can cause rashes and razor burns.

 

How Hair Grows

Hair grows in 3 cycles: Active, dormant and shedding/falling out stage. Laser hair removal is effective during the active stage, which is why multiple treatments are necessary to achieve desired results. The hair follicle absorbs the laser light and then converts to heat. The heat damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow. Significantly less hair grows back with each treatment… ultimately resulting in your goal of permanent hair reduction. Your skin, hair color, coarseness of hair as well as age and metabolism all influence hair growth.  This treatment may not be performed during pregnancy.

 

Things to Know
