Do you wish that you could avoid the need to constantly pluck, shave, or wax to remove unwanted hair from places like your face, legs, arms, or underarms? Laser hair removal procedures have made this desire a reality for millions of people who have unshackled themselves from this tedious necessity.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
This is a procedure that relies upon the use of a laser to transmit focused wavelengths of light into hair follicles to destroy them and prevent them from growing hair. Only a series of quick treatment sessions is needed to reduce or remove unwanted hair in the treatment area.
How Does It Work?
The laser transmits light into hair follicles that is transformed into thermal energy. The melanin, or part of your hair that gives it its color, absorbs this energy, destroying the hair follicle. Hair cannot grow without a hair follicle, so a series of treatments results in bare area of skin in the treatment area.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You will need more than one treatment for the removal of hair because of the way that hair follicles grow. Hair follicles grow in certain stages. A given hair follicle may be in one stage while another nearby follicle is in another. The hair follicle in a dormant phase will have shed its hair, meaning it cannot be targeted by the laser. By undergoing multiple treatment sessions, we are catching each and every hair follicle when it eventually moves into a growth cycle and can be treated.
Would I Make a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for a laser hair removal treatment is someone with unwanted hair and realistic expectations. The only way that we can make a final determination if you would make a good candidate for this procedure is by examining you at your consultation.
