Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair can be a source of frustration and embarrassment, growing everywhere from upper lips and underarms to backs and bikini lines. While it is important to have smooth, silky skin, the daily hassle of shaving and tweezing and the pain and expense of waxing can become tiresome and leave you with unsatisfactory results. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive, longer-lasting and more effective way of removing that unwanted body hair.
How It Works
Using a handheld device, a concentrated beam of light is directed towards the treatment area. The light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. Each hair follicle follows a development cycle consisting of resting phases and growth phases. If the follicle is in the growth phase during treatment, it will become inactive, inhibiting further hair growth. Because follicles are simultaneously at different points in the growth cycle, undergoing several treatments is necessary for adequate results.
Results differ widely person to person and the number of treatment sessions you require will depend on your individual skin and hair type, and the area being treated.
