Everything you need to know about laser hair removal

You must be one of those people who tried everything to get rid of those annoying hair on your legs. You have spent hours plucking them in your bathroom and you have tried every known razor blade there is. You have also used that awful wax that is such a pain to prepare and apply and an even greater pain to remove. Now there is a quick, painless, easy and permanent solution – laser hair removal. This effective and safe hair removal method will give you long-lasting  results and it will maintain your skin’s silkyness.

What exactly is laser hair removal?

Laser technology has advanced greatly in the past decade or so and has been very succesfully  introduced to the beauty and healthcare businesses. The main difference between traditional hair removal methods like plucking, shaving or waxing  is  that laser hair removal targets the hair follicles at the root. The laser attacks the source of the hair, beneath the surface of the skin. This effectively means that if you shave or pluck your hair, you will only manage to remove the shafts of the hair,thereby making  future hair growth possible.  Using a laser, however, means that you will target the follicle and deny the possibility of future growth.

This method is completely safe to use and can be utilized on most parts of your body, including the face, neck, underarms and arms, legs, chest, back, and of course, the bikini areas. You may choose to treat one or more areas of your body, depending on your liking. Men can use this method with great success and they can also  use it only to thin out a certain area or totally clear it of hair.

How does it work?

Laser is a focuesed beam of photons, effectively a concetrated ray of light of uniform frequency. It manages to remove the hair from your skin because it is a pulse of energy aimed directly into the follicle of the hair. The follicle absorbs the energy of the laser in form  of heat and the ensuing process destroys the follicle. This prevents any future growth of hair from this spot, this follicle. Due to the anatomy  and the forming process of hair, sometimes multiple sessions will have to be performed to completely clear the area.

Several advantages of this method make it the most popular hair removal method. For example, the speed of the method allows you to fit a quick treatment into your schedule  during the course of the day, without interfering with your other daily tasks.
