How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses the power of lasers to remove unwanted body hair. During hair removal laser treatment, a laser beam is directed at the targeted area of skin where it passes through the skin’s surface and targets the melanin in each individual hair follicle. The high energy light emitted by the laser heats up and damages each hair follicle, effectively disabling its ability to produce new hair. This process eliminates unwanted body hair without damaging any surrounding skin tissue. Depending on how many treatments are needed and how quickly your body responds to treatment, results may be seen after just one session. An average of eight laser hair removal sessions are recommended for optimal results.
When you receive hair removal laser treatment, a technician will use a handheld device to direct the laser over areas of unwanted body hair until all desired areas have been treated. Most patients report feeling minimal discomfort during treatment and some only experience mild redness or swelling afterwards, which typically subsides within 24 hours.
