Virtually all women would love to have smooth legs without the need to regularly remove unwanted hair. Too many of them do not realize that a treatment exists that can unshackle them forever from the need to constantly engage in this tedious activity. Laser hair removal has become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States because it can safely and permanently remove or reduce unwanted hair in the treatment area.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure in which we use a laser to disable hair follicles and prevent them from growing hair on a permanent basis. The treatment allows us to focus only on hair follicles producing unwanted hair. Surrounding skin tissue is unaffected, making the treatment incredibly efficient with little to no downtime.
How Does the Treatment Work?
We use a laser to direct focused thermal energy into melanin, the pigment that produces your hair color. After this laser energy is absorbed, the hair follicle is destroyed and can no longer produce hair. We can treat many hair follicles simultaneously using this treatment.
Would I Make a Good Candidate?
The great majority of potential patients make good candidates for the procedure. Those who achieve the best results are those who stick with all of their treatment sessions and have realistic expectations.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients require a series of treatment sessions for ideal results. The reason is that each individual hair will be found in a different growth phase during the initial treatment. One hair may be in its growth phase while another is in its resting phase when no hair is present to allow for laser targeting. Spacing out your laser procedures allows us to find each hair when it happens to be in its growth phase and present for laser targeting.
What is a Treatment Like?
Laser hair removal is performed in the comfort of our office. Treatments are designed to be quick and convenient. During the session, we direct the cosmetic laser to precisely target only hair follicles producing unwanted hair, destroying them and preventing them from growing hair in the future.
