How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal targets hair follicles using laser energy to get rid of unwanted hair. The laser generates thermal energy that destroys hair follicles to inhibit further hair growth or lengthen the hair growth cycle. In the long run, each hair follicle that’s exposed to laser energy generates less hair overtime to ensure that you have long-term benefits of permanent hair reduction.
The pigment in your hair soaks up the laser energy while protecting the skin surrounding the region of treatment. You may need multiple laser treatments to account for your hair’s growth. Complete treatment for your hair follicles inhibits further growth of hair.
Parts You May Treat with Laser Hair Removal
Laser technology is ideal for individuals with every hair color, skin color, and on different body parts. You may opt for laser hair removal to get rid of hair in/on your:
- Bikini area
Any man or woman can benefit from laser hair removal to get smoother skin that helps you reduce the effort and time taken in grooming and removing unwanted hair.
What to Expect During a Laser Hair Removal Appointment
During a laser hair removal appointment, you may need protective gear to keep your eyes safe from the laser light. You can comfortably get through the treatment, but if you’re concerned about your comfort, you can request a topical numbing cream. Your provider at Manhattan Dermatology uses handheld devices that press against the area subjected to laser energy.
In some sessions, you may feel a warm feeling and a rubber band that snaps against your skin as the laser courses energy through to your hair follicles. Some lasers have in-built cooling systems to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the entire procedure. The time taken to complete a laser hair removal depends on the area being treated and the amount of hair you need to remove.
Treating your underarms and upper lip is completed in a matter of minutes, while your back and legs may take about an hour or more. After the procedure, your skin may get redder than usual. Uncomfortable symptoms fade away within hours, ensuring that you suffer zero down time. You shall need no more razor blades to enjoy hair-free skin.
