Why do patients opt for laser hair removal?
Many are tired of having to repeatedly remove unwanted hair through tedious and painful methods such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing. In response, the demand for light-based permanent hair reduction has skyrocketed.
Who can get laser hair removal?
Women and men alike. Most women seek to remove hair from their underarms, bikini lines, and legs, while men are more interested in treating hair on their backs and necks.
How does it work? What’s the science behind it?
Laser hair removal works by destroying the root of the hair follicle without damaging the skin around it. During treatment, flashes of light are distributed over the skin and absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The energy from the laser heats up and damages the hair follicle, successfully stunting the cells that stimulate regrowth.
What kind of results can patients expect?
Most patients require 5 to 8 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve desired results. Virtually every patient – no matter their skin or hair type – can receive long-lasting removal results for unwanted hair. Patients with lighter hair may require more treatments than others, but will still see effective results by the end of their treatments.
Does laser hair removal save patients money?
Laser hair removal saves a client’s time, pain, and money. Sources compared the cost of 3 sessions of laser to 35 years of continuous waxing and the results showed that laser hair removal is less than a third of the cost of waxing.
