Waxing and plucking unwanted body hair can be painful. It can also discolor the skin because of the harshness of the procedure. An alternative is laser hair removal. This procedure provides minimal discomfort when compared to traditional removal methods. It is also permanent in most cases because the follicles themselves are destroyed and do not regrow. A laser treatment takes very little time and is an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient can resume normal activities at once. If you are concerned about unsightly body hair and are weary of shaving and plucking, this more effective solution may be just what you’re looking for. We perform this procedure for our clients who want smooth, hairless skin without the hassles of shaving or heat and wax treatments.
How a Laser Removes Hair
A laser is a focused beam of light. The beam is monochromatic, meaning there is only one tightly focused wavelength of light. A laser is, therefore, a powerful cutting tool. It can also be programmed to deliver just the right frequency of light that is absorbed by a particular density and tone of the material.
This means that a laser can be used to zap and destroy hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissue. The instrument used is hand-held, connected by a power cord and programming wiring to a console. The dermatologist passes the laser beam over a section of skin, and the follicles are heated and destroyed by the pulsating light.
During the Procedure
Our laser system has a cooling system to minimize pain, differentiating it from other lasers on the market. For how we can tailor a laser hair removal session, contact us.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Unlike waxing and plucking techniques, the skin itself is not affected. The laser beam is so accurately calibrated regarding wavelength that only the follicle is heated. The body sends nutrients to the affected area. After several weeks, there is no visible sign that the follicle ever existed. This is preferred to waxing or plucking because the results are permanent.
It is possible to see positive effects after one treatment, but optimal results may require 2-3 treatments.
