You’ve tried everything to get rid of unwanted hair, yet nothing has given you the long-lasting impact you desire. Laser hair removal might be the answer to your problem. The FDA approved hair removal lasers in 1997. Since then, it has grown to become one of the most common cosmetic procedures in America.
Several variations of the laser hair removal device are available. No matter the device used, the same basic technology is applied. Laser hair removal works by penetrating each strand of unwanted hair directly to the roots. This damages the hair follicle and prevents it from growing new hair. There are many benefits to laser hair removal, including:
- The lasers used during the process are able to target coarse hairs without damaging the surrounding skin.
- Laser hair removal is a fast and effective process. Each pulse takes a fraction of a second and is able to treat multiple hairs. Smaller areas can be treated in less than a minute, while larger areas can take up to an hour.
- It takes about three to seven sessions for patients to notice permanent hair loss.
If you choose to undergo laser hair removal, you will need to stop plucking and waxing for six weeks before the first treatment. In addition, you should avoid sun exposure before and after the treatment. Laser hair removal is able to provide you with longer lasting results than traditional methods of hair removal.
