Laser hair removal is a solution for people with noticeable, unwanted hair in places such as the face, arms and back. Thick, dark hair grows and often leaves people self-conscious. While there are temporary solutions such as shaving or waxing, laser hair removal is a relatively painless solution with longer lasting results.
Lasers target hair follicles and eliminate or significantly hinder hair from growing back. A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. During the laser hair removal procedure, the light from the laser passes through the skin and gets absorbed by the color located in the hair follicles. The laser pulses long enough to vaporize the pigment, halting several follicles at a time.
For most patients, multiple sessions are usually needed to achieve the best results. However, some patients find significant improvements, such as hair reduction, or a decrease in thickness, after one visit, enough to be satisfied with their appearance.
