Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted hair can be a nuisance. Shaving is a hassle, and you may have to do it nearly every day, with the associated hazards of nicks and razor burn. If you choose waxing, then you have to do it every few weeks, and it can be uncomfortable. Many women would like a more permanent solution to get rid of unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal is that solution. This is a painless procedure that can remove hair from a particular area permanently. Women may choose to have laser hair removal on the face (where unwanted hair is particularly concerning for those women who have it), underarms, bikini area, legs, or any other problematic area.


Permanent Removal

To permanently remove hair from an area of the body, several sessions of laser hair removal are needed. This is because the treatment only works on hair follicles that are active at that time. Hair follicles normally grow hair for a period, then go into a resting phase. The hair sheds at the beginning of the resting phase, and the follicle waits for a while before starting to grow a new one. Once the follicle is in its resting phase, laser hair removal won’t work on it. You need to have several treatments, spaced a few weeks apart, to make sure that you catch nearly every follicle during its active phase.

For many people, laser hair removal will provide a dramatic reduction of unwanted hair, to the point where it’s not noticeable anymore. It may not completely remove every hair forever, especially for those who have a hormonal imbalance that’s causing too much hair growth, but it will still make a huge difference. Most people who have laser hair removal are very satisfied with the results.
