LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Modern lasers treat unwanted hair quick and safe. During a Laser Hair Removal procedure the pigment within hair(melanin) absorbs the laser light and converts it into heat, destroying the hair follicle without damaging the skin. Thus, the follicle cannot produce new hair. All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. Laser light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair. Resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated. For this reason, Laser Hair Removal treatments must be repeated until all hair follicles have passed through the growing phase. Usually around 6 treatments are needed with an intervals of 4-6 weeks. For best results Laser Hair Removal treatments are customized according to the skin color, hair texture, and body site. Some hormonal imbalance conditions can contribute to resistant Laser Hair Removal cases.

New Laser Hair Removal machines are able to cover large skin areas at high speed, treating numerous hair follicles with each light pulse. The underarms usually take five minutes to treat, while the full back or the legs may require 30-40 minutes. Involving no downtime, you can continue with all your regular activities immediately after the treatment. While pain tolerance is an individually matter, most people tolerate Laser Hair Removal treatment well, and describe the sensation similar to a rubber band snap. The majority of the clients are comfortable just with some local cooling, though a topical anesthetic is an option for more sensitive areas. Laser Hair Removal complications are minimal in the hands of an experienced technician. Mild skin irritation usually resolves soon after the procedure. It is important to avoid a prolonged sun exposure after the Laser Hair Removal procedures to avoid complications. Visit the Laser Hair Photo Gallery.
