Removing unwanted hair via plucking or shaving isn’t a permanent solution. The follicles simply produce a new hair strand. The best way to achieve a hair-free skin surface is to have the follicles themselves removed. This is accomplished by laser hair removal treatment. A laser beam is used to damage the follicle and render it incapable of producing hair cells.
Most people think of the legs and bikini lines as the suitable areas for this type of treatment, but laser hair removal can be employed to get rid of unwanted hair growth on other areas of the body. If you aren’t familiar with the treatment but want more information, we suggest a consultation so that we can outline the procedure in detail. Below, we give an overview of this near-permanent solution for unwanted hair growth.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Leg hair grows back pretty quickly, and many individuals tire of constant shaving. Waxing is painful, and plucking is risky because it can cause scarring. Laser hair treatment can be performed with ease on large areas of skin surface. The modern instruments in use today emit beams of light energy that can purposely damage multiple follicles with a single burst.
Hair above the upper lip is thin, and it’s difficult to shave away without affecting the skin surface in a negative manner. This small region can be treated with laser energy in just a few minutes. The darker the hair, the easier it is for the laser to target the follicles.
Adult women may experience thin hairs growing on the chin. This is another area that a laser can treat with ease. The eyebrows can appear bushy as one gets older, but laser hair removal in this area can actually reshape the brow contour and bring about a more youthful appearance.
Customized Treatment Schedule
We generally schedule four or more treatment sessions for large areas such as the legs, buttocks, and back. Not all of the follicles are in an active phase at the same time, and only those follicles that are currently producing dead hair cells can be damaged by the laser energy. This is because the follicle gets darker in tone when it’s producing the hair strand.
The result is hair-free skin that has a smooth appearance. Once the follicle is gone, it doesn’t get replaced by a new one. Very rarely will new follicles be created in the area treated by laser energy.
