Achieve Silky Smoothness with Laser Hair Removal
Imagine how much time you have wasted by waxing, plucking, or shaving to remove unwanted hair over the course of your lifetime. A treatment called laser hair removal can help you free up time that was once spent on this tedious activity. A series of quick, convenient treatments is all that is needed for the removal or reduction of unwanted hair in the treatment area.
How It Works
Laser hair removal works through the targeted direction of laser energy into hair follicles producing unwanted hair. The pigment-producing part of your hair, called melanin, absorbs the energy, which destroys the hair follicle to prevent it from growing hair.
People generally require multiple treatment sessions for the desired removal of unwanted hair. This is because of how hair grows in unique, independent hair cycles. At any given time, some hair follicles will be in a growth phase while others are in a dormant cycle. A hair follicle that is in its dormant cycle will not have a hair available for laser targeting. Undergoing multiple sessions ensures that we find each hair follicle when it is in a growth phase, allowing it to be targeted by the laser.
The Treatment Process
You will wear protective eyewear while the laser is in use. We will then test the laser after adjusting it to your unique specifications. We will then transmit laser energy into the hair follicles producing unwanted hair. A small area takes only seconds to treat, and multiple hair follicles can be targeted simultaneously.
The best candidates for laser hair removal procedures tend to be those with melanin in each hair. Since dark hair has more melanin present within it, it makes for a better target for the laser. With that being said, we can use this treatment on men and women of various hair colors and skin types.
