Are you unhappy with the constant need to remove unwanted hair from places such as your face, legs, or bikini area? Laser hair removal has become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States for a reason: it permanently sets you free from this tedious routine and allows you to spend your time more productively. The procedure involves the use of a highly concentrated light beam that is transmitted into hair follicles producing unwanted hair. The follicle pigments absorb this energy and are destroyed by it, which prevents them from growing hair in the future.
The procedure is fast and easy, and the lasers have been proven to be extremely safe. They are very specific and optimized for the purpose of hair removal, and your skin will not absorb the energy. Several treatments are required for the permanent removal of hair.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The procedure works by the transmission of light wavelengths that destroy melanin or the pigment that gives your hair its color. This treatment has the ability to destroy hair without damaging nearby skin tissue since the hair itself will be absorbing all of the laser energy. The process itself takes only about 20 to 40 minutes.
Are There Any Precautions I Should Take Before My Procedure?
Before your laser hair removal procedure, do not pluck, wax, or use electrolysis for a period prior. The roots of your hair will be targeted, and these are temporarily removed by plucking and waxing. By having a hair present, the laser will be able to properly target and do its job. You should also refrain from excessive exposure to the sun before and after your procedure. Prolonged sun exposure can make the treatment less effective and complications more likely.
