What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is one of the most-effective procedures on the market to remove hair from the body. The hair does not just disappear; laser light is aimed at the hair and destroys the follicle. Once the follicle is destroyed, the hair will be unable to grow in that area. Generally, it takes several appointments before laser hair removal is deemed successful since there are different stages of hair growth. Most people will find success with six to eight appointments. Keep in mind that those with light-colored hair will be more difficult to treat than those with darker-colored hair. Other options for hair removal are available for those with light-colored hair.

How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?

Laser hair removal for those in Pipe Creek, TX, and the surrounding area is a relatively pain-free procedure. Typically, the procedure starts with washing the skin where the laser hair removal will occur. This is followed by a technician applying a topical anesthetic directly to the skin. This will help with the discomfort and will allow the laser device to glide more easily. The patient will be given eyewear to protect their eyes from the laser, and the process will begin. The laser will move across the skin, and concentrated pulses of light will be sent into the hair down to the follicle. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure will take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour in most cases.
