Laser hair removal is one of those things that everybody hears about, but only a few people know exactly what it is. If more people understood just how beneficial laser hair removal is, it’s likely that the number of individuals who use this procedure would skyrocket. In fact, as word of mouth is getting out about laser hair removal, we are seeing a steady increase in the number of people who are using this procedure for permanent hair reduction.
What is it that attracts people to laser hair removal? People want to get rid of unwanted hair, but they are sick and tired of spending money, enduring constant discomfort, and wasting time using manual hair removal methods. Some of these methods include things like using razors, waxes, and tweezers. Laser hair removal is a lot easier and a lot less uncomfortable overall than many of these procedures. And what’s great is that you may be left with permanent hair reduction.
We do not say that laser hair removal is a permanent hair removal solution. This is because as your body changes, you could start to produce new hair follicles eventually. However, if the hair does grow back, it will come back a lot lighter and there will be a lot less of it than before you had the treatment. And you can always return to our office for touch-up treatments whenever necessary.
During this procedure, energy from the laser is directed at the treated area. The pigmentation in your hair attracts the heat and energy from the laser. This heat and energy are then directed at your hair follicle. As a result, the hair follicle becomes deactivated. Once it is deactivated, it may never be able to produce hair again.
Something that’s very important to clarify is that laser hair removal is not a one-time treatment. This is because your hair grows in cycles. So, the hair that you have today may not be the same ones that will be active a couple of months from now. For this reason, you need to have a series of treatment sessions at our office to destroy every hair that you have. Once you have completed your treatments, then you will be able to reap the benefits of long-term hair reduction.
