Hair is defined as a protein filament that grows through the epidermis from follicles deep within the dermis. Hair can grow on most areas of the human body, except on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet (among other areas), but hair is most noticeable in most people in a small number of areas, which are also the ones that are most commonly trimmed, plucked, or shaved. These include the face, nose, ears, head, eyebrows, eyelashes, legs and armpits, as well as the pubic region.
If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.
Laser Hair Removal treatment is the most effective modern treatment to people who desire to remove unwanted body and face hairs. Common treatment locations include legs, back, underarms, upper lip, chins, bikini lines. However, it’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area.
Laser Hair Removal is a medical procedure which uses the laser energy for removing unwanted hairs from the skin. The laser would target dark pigments in hairs called “melanin”, when the light beam hits the hair follicles (where the hair growth begins), the laser energy will destroy the hair follicles instantly and as a result of that, hair are removed.
Laser Hair Removal is a fast treatment, effective and gives visible result with no adverse effects. When activated, the laser beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which inhibits hair growth. You might feel a little discomfort, such as a warm pinprick.
Treating a small area, such as the upper lip, might take only a few minutes. Treating a larger area, such as the back, might take more than an hour.
The interval for each session of laser hair removal is about 2 – 3 weeks depending on individual’s conditions. Normally the series of 4 – 5 sessions or even more are commended for patient who wants to get rid of those unwanted hairs permanently. Patient may resume to their daily activities after the Laser Hair Removal treatment.
Laser Hair Removal treatment is suitable for all skin types. Results vary significantly and are difficult to predict. Most people experience hair removal that lasts several months, and it might last for years. When hair regrows, it’s usually finer and lighter in color.
