What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is very effective for reducing or eliminating the growth of hair on your face or body. Laser treatments involve the use of an intense light, which stops hair follicles that are in the active phase of growth from growing new hair.
Advantages of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that is relatively fast. Laser hair removal is also less painful than electrolysis or waxing. The majority of people also do not experience bothersome pain or lasting side effects. It gives you long term results, with a permanent reduction in hair growth. Other hair removal methods such as shaving and waxing only remove the hair shaft, therefore the results do not last as long.
What Can I Expect From Laser Hair Removal?
Most people can benefit from laser hair removal, however results may vary depending on your hair type and other factors. Hair growth may recur in some cases, however the new growth is usually replaced with finer, thinner hair that is lighter in color. Multiple treatments are typically needed to achieve the best results, as all hair follicles must be treated during their active growth phase. After your initial treatments are completed, a maintenance appointment every 6 – 12 months will enable you to sustain the results.
