Shaving. Tweezing. Waxing. Ugh. There’s a lot of time and money that goes into removing unwanted body hair, but what if there was a permanent solution? Laser hair removal is a virtually painless medical procedure that can be conducted almost anywhere on the body to remove unwanted body hair, including the legs, underarms, upper lip, chin and bikini line.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. The laser is a pulsing beam of light that travels at a fraction of a second and passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The heat from the laser damages the hair follicle so that the hair cannot grow in the future. Depending on the size of the area being treated, a session can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour and it may take several session to remove all of the unwanted hair. After a session, the skin may feel and look sunburned for the next couple of days. Cool compresses and moisturizers may help with irritation. Over the next month, treated hair will begin to fall out.
