Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. The treatment can slow down hair growth but it does not guarantee permanent hair loss. It usually takes multiple treatments to get rid of unwanted hair. It is possible to need periodic maintenance treatments.
This laser beam targets pigment in hair, so it is best for those with light skin. Full-body laser hair removal has become safer and more effective thanks to technological advances.
What does it mean?
High-concentrated light beams are used to selectively penetrate the hair follicles. The light is then absorbed into the hair follicles by pigment, which destroys the hair and inhibits future growth.
Is it Safe?
This laser is used to remove unwanted hair from the legs, face, bikini line, underarms, and upper lip. Lasers are able to selectively target hairs while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The laser can treat multiple hairs simultaneously in a fraction of a second.
Preparation of Treatment
Any hairs in the area of laser hair removal will need to be cut. The laser equipment will then be adjusted according to the color, thickness, andlocationof the hairs being treated. You should clean the area before you start treatment.
To protect your eyes from the radiation of the laser, you need to wear appropriate eye protection. A hand-held laser will be used to press against your skin during the procedure. Your skin may be protected by a cooling device or gel depending on the laser used. To reduce discomfort, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the skin.
