Unwanted body hair can be a daily hassle to manage. Whether it’s shaving or waxing, tweezing or plucking, it can often feel like hair grows back the instant after you remove it! Hair removal can be a tedious and time consuming task, but it does not have to rule your personal maintenance routine. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment option that can help you efficiently reduce hair growth.
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical treatment option that uses laser technology to directly target hair follicles. The power of the laser directly penetrates to the hair follicle and damages it. When the hair follicle is damaged, the hair growth cycle is disrupted. While this may not necessarily permanently prevent hair from growing back, it can significantly reduce the frequency and thickness with which hair grows.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?
Most men and women can benefit from laser hair removal! Although it is typically most effective on fair skin with dark, coarse hair, it can be used on most skin and hair tones and types. Advances in laser technology have allowed for the treatment of darker skin tones with minimal risk of pigmentation issues.
Laser hair removal is a diverse treatment option that can be used on most areas of the body. It is most commonly used for the reduction of hair in areas like:
- Intimate Areas
