How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal utilizes the power of directed laser pulses to target and remove specific areas of hair growth. This method of hair removal is so effective because it damages the source of hair growth – the follicle. Once this follicle is damaged or destroyed, hair can no longer grow from it.
We use the Elite+ laser in all of our laser hair removal procedures. This state-of-the-art device reduces the average procedure time because it can target larger areas of skin. The average spot size is 18 mm – this is a 44% larger treatment area compared to other lasers.
What are the Benefits?
While some people may think laser hair removal is unnecessary because of alternatives like waxing, shaving, and plucking, it offers a host of unique benefits that these other methods do not. These advantages include:
- Comfort – With laser hair removal, you no longer have to deal with the possibility of shaving cuts that can turn into unsightly scars, nor do you have to suffer from the pain of waxing. While it requires a small period of recovery time,
- Precision – Laser hair removal enables you to remove hair from specific, targeted areas while leaving the surrounding skin completely unharmed.
- Convenience – Daily shaving, plucking, or waxing can be time-consuming and costly. While it takes multiple sessions to remove hair completely, laser hair removal could eventually get rid of targeted areas of hair permanently, so you don’t have to worry about them.
Am I Good Candidate?
The good news is that nearly everyone is a candidate for laser hair removal. However, this procedure is more effective for some people than others. Laser hair removal is difficult to perform on people with white or blonde hair, so it typically works best for people who have both light skin and dark hair.
If you’re interested in laser hair removal, it never hurts to schedule an appointment to consult with our medical team. We can examine your current condition, aesthetic goals, and medical history to see if this is right for you.
