Laser Hair Removal

Body > Laser Hair Removal

For many women and men, unwanted hair can be a nuisance - or even a nightmare. Until recently, removing it was uncomfortable, inconvenient, expensive and time-consuming. With the exception of electrolysis, which can be prohibitively expensive and painful, most other methods are temporary at best.

But that has all changed. Today, with the remarkable advances in laser technology, unwanted hair is being removed safely and effectively. Laser Hair Removal had been proven highly effective in permanently reducing unwanted hair. It works on just about any treatment area of the body where smooth hairless skin is desire. Underarms, face, neck, legs, shoulders, back, bikini line, you name it.

Hair grows in three distinct cycles. The active or growth cycles (Anagen); the dormant cycle (Catagen) and, finally, the fall-out or shedding cycle (Telogen). Laser Hair Removal is most effective during the active growth cycle (Anagen).

The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser energy and converts the light to heat. The heat, in turn, damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow. It is important to treat each follicle during the growth cycle for maximum hair reduction. Dark hair responds better, thin peach fuzz does not respond to laser hair reduction.

Significantly less hair grows back with each treatment. Usually three to six cessions are needed to achieve the desired result in hair reduction. The number of treatments required varies from individual to individual.

Hair growth cycles differ on different parts of the body. Your skin and hair color, coarseness of hair as well as age influence hair growth rate. The final result expected is a reduction in the number of hair by at least 80-90%.

The remaining hair is very thin and fine hair that is hardly noticed.
