Grooming standards for both sexes demand a lot of attention be paid to the treatment of hair. Waxing, plucking, shaving, threading and using depilatory creams are all valid methods for removing unwanted hair, but none of them will give you a permanent solution.
What’s worse, some of these methods are very hard on your skin and can result in cuts, chemical burns, ingrown hairs and infections. Not only are these methods harmful, but they can also be expensive, especially over time. If you want permanent hair removal but are sick and tired of the daily tasks of getting rid of your excess hair, then laser hair removal may be just the answer you need.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal uses intense, focused light to heat the hair shafts in the treatment area. The laser is calibrated to treat only the hairs, leaving your skin at its normal temperature. The heated hair shaft then affects the hair follicles so that they are unable to ever grow another hair.
Just as hair will not grow on a scar, laser-treated hair will not grow back. Hair follicles are not always active, but only active follicles can be treated successfully. For this reason, it is necessary to have multiple treatments to remove all of the hair from the treatment area.
Laser Hair Removal: A Versatile Procedure
Laser hair removal can be used on nearly every area of the body. Whether it is permanently shaping your eyebrows or removing every last hint of leg hair, laser can get the job done. You are also not required to remove all of the hair in a given area. For example, if you simply want to treat your bikini line but not your pubic hair, our skilled technician can create a neat border.
