If you have unwanted hair on your body that you would rather not deal with on a regular basis, consider laser hair removal at our office. This procedure has the potential to remove unwanted hair in the treatment area for a long time, and the side effects are almost nonexistent.
How Lasers Remove Unwanted Hair
Lasers come in all shapes, sizes and strengths. A specialized laser instrument is used for hair removal. The laser beam is directed at the skin, and the brief flash, lasting only a tiny fraction of a second, is enough for the light energy to be absorbed by the follicles in the affected area. The flashes of energy are repeated several times, enough to heat up and slightly damage the follicle. The follicle isn’t completely burned during the treatment session. That would require too much energy and could cause damage to the skin and other tissues. Therefore, we schedule a series of treatment sessions, spaced a set amount of time apart.
The laser output is calibrated and adjusted to produce a frequency that works as heat waves. The actual settings depend on the color of the hair, the skin tone, skin thickness and size of the follicles.
After a series of laser hair removal treatments at our office, the follicle is heavily damaged and can no longer produce hair cells. The follicle is eventually flushed from the body as waste material.
It is important to be patient as you move forward with laser hair removal. Results are not going to happen overnight. If you expect this, you will be disappointed. However, when you understand that laser hair removal takes multiple sessions, you should be satisfied with the final outcome.
