Laser hair removal works by applying a concentrated beam of light to hair follicles, which then conduct heat, eventually inactivating the associated hair follicle. It is one of the most common hair-removal procedures and eliminates the need to wax or shave regularly.
About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective technique for removing hairs semi-permanently. Laser hair removal has longer-lasting effects than other methods of hair removal, such as waxing and shaving.
The procedure works by applying a medical-grade laser to strands of hair. The laser heats the pigment in the hair fibers that give them their color. This energy then passes down the hair’s shaft into the follicle in the skin, denaturing the biological machinery that makes hair production possible. After the treatment, that particular hair strand can never grow back.
People use laser hair removal to target unwanted hair on the face, chin, arms, underarms, upper lip, legs, bikini line, and many other areas. Because of how the therapy works, it can treat large areas of hair growth – roughly a quarter-sized area every second. Getting rid of unwanted hair on the upper lip, for instance, often takes less than a minute.
