We have all felt frustration due to unwanted hair on our bodies. Usually, we end up looking for quick fixes to get rid of the excess hair – shaving, waxing, tweezing. However, the problem with these quick-fix procedures is that the hairs grow back quite quickly.

For those looking for a longer-lasting solution for our excess facial or body hair, laser hair removal treatment is an option worth considering.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

One of the most widely practiced cosmetic procedures in America, laser hair removal is also one of the safest and most reliable. The process involves focusing a highly concentrated laser beam onto the hair shaft. Pulses of laser energy are absorbed by the shaft and penetrate the skin to reach the hair follicle. The pigments in the follicle absorb the laser beams, and the energy of the laser permanently damages the follicle beyond repair, making it unable to grow new hair.

Because of the fact that the effectiveness of this procedure is based on the absorption of light by the hair follicles, laser hair removal works best for people with darker hair and lighter skin.

Multiple periodic sessions of laser hair removal therapy can significantly reduce the density of hair growth and provide extended hairless periods. Although the procedure does not guarantee permanent removal of all treated hairs, it can make any future hair growth lighter and finer.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair therapy is commonly used in hair reduction from areas such as under the arms and on the legs, back, chin, upper lip, bikini line, and even stomach.

There are several benefits of adopting this technique for reduction of unwanted hair:

• The laser hair removal device generates laser pulses that are focused on the treatment area every fraction of a second. As a result, the treatment of smaller areas, such as the facial region, might be completed within a few minutes. The speed of this treatment makes it a feasible option for busy individuals who do not have the luxury of spending long hours on a cosmetic treatment. Additionally, a single laser beam can treat multiple hairs at the same time, further adding to the efficiency of this procedure.

• The laser hair removal technique involves selective targeting of dark, coarse hair while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The precision of this technique makes it a safe and reliable approach to hair reduction.

• Usually, treated individuals notice long-lasting hair loss after going through multiple sessions of the therapy. For individuals with dark hair and light-complexioned skin, laser hair removal therapy is an ideal way to achieve a hair-free body.
