Laser Hair Reduction

Tired of shaving, tweezing and waxing to reduce unwanted hair? Laser hair reduction may be an option worth considering.Laser hair reduction or removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures which works by beaming highly concentrated light into the hair follicles. The procedure uses an intense, pulsating beam of light to remove unwanted facial and body hair. The intense laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. This damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. With laser removal, you can address unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, and other areas. Lasers are most effective and can selectively target dark, coarse hairs and people who have light skin while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Periodic multiple and maintenance laser treatments might be required to effectively slow down hair growth. During the laser treatment, each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of the second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Laser is one of the most aesthetic treatments for small areas such as the upper lips which can be treated in less than a minute and large areas such as the back or legs, which may take up to an hour.
