After shaving multiple times a week for years on end, unsightly hair can become increasingly annoying by the day. What if there was a way to get rid of it for good? That’s where laser hair removal comes in! It is one of the most effective methods of decreasing the amount of hair on the body.

What is Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser hair reduction doesn’t just trim the hair follicles as shaving or waxing does. Instead, it removes the entire hair follicle so that the hair is unable to regrow. As the lasers work on destroying the follicles, they target the dark pigments of the hair to destroy it. This is why laser hair reduction works best on fair-skinned individuals with darker body hair. Before going through with the treatment seek a consultation to see if laser hair reduction is a good option for you regarding your skin tone and hair pigment.

This procedure is most effective when it takes place over the course of about eight treatments, each a couple of weeks apart. Whether you want the procedure to focus on your legs, armpits, chest, back, bikini area, or face, almost any location on the body can be treated.

How does it work?

This treatment requires several visits over the course of a couple of months. The treatments work best when targeting the hair follicles while they are in a stage of active growth. This continually discourages them from growing and, in the end, completely destroys them. As the lasers target the dark pigments of your hair, the light is absorbed by the follicles and converted into heat. This heat damages the follicles without harming the skin, leading to a destroyed hair follicle.

What are the benefits of this laser hair removal?

For both men and women, one of the biggest issues with unwanted hair is the process of getting rid of it. Nobody enjoys tweezing, waxing, or shaving on a daily basis. Laser hair reduction however, is a safe and effective way to get rid of all that hair for good. Even better, you won’t have to worry about taking time off from life because the reduction treatments require zero recovery time!
