During permanent hair removal, a powerful laser light beam passes through the skin to target individual hair follicles. The laser energy damages the follicles and inhibits future hair growth, but does not harm the patient’s skin. Several sessions are recommended because hair can only be affected when it is in the growth stage. Since not all of your hair develops at the same time, sessions are scheduled a few weeks apart to ensure all of your hair follicles are treated. Laser hair removal is safe for all areas, including the face, arms, back, underarms, legs, chest and the bikini area.
Your hair type and the size of the treatment area will determine the number of sessions you will need. Most treatment sessions last less than a half-hour, making them easy to fit into a busy schedule. Unlike shaving or waxing, laser hair removal will not cause major skin irritation or cuts. Some patients may experience a sunburn-like sensation and minor swelling, but they will be able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
