Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? Do you get razor bumps or acne-like breakouts when you remove unwanted hair? If so, then you must consider laser hair removal techniques for better results.
Laser hair removal involves use of intense, pulsating beams of light to remove unwanted hair from the face, underarms, back, and legs. The laser targets the melanin, or pigment, in the hair shaft and damages the hair follicle, which helps to stop future hair growth.
Laser hair removal can be used on patients with all skin types, although it is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair. Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it does not guarantee permanent hair removal.
Several treatments are usually required to remove hair. For best results, you may need at least six treatments spaced a number of weeks apart. Laser hair removal has become so popular that it is often performed in non-medical settings, such as salons and spas. It is important to choose a well-certified doctor or practitioner who is trained in these types of treatments.
Although laser hair removal isn’t exactly permanent, it’s still one of the best options for slowing hair growth over an extended period of time. Other long-term hair removal options you can discuss with a skilled dermatologist.
