About Laser Hair Removal

We often grow has where we don’t want it, and lose it were we do want it. The most common areas where women seek laser has removol are the lip and chin, underarms and bikini area. Laser hair removal is also ideal for large areas such as the legs. The first thing for most women to do before embarking on o removal program is to determine that the cause of the hair growth is not hormonal. Women experiencing hoir growth in areas such as the face, breasts or chest, or experiencing symptoms that might indicate o hormonal imbalance such os irregular menstrual cycles or severe acne, should consult their physician to determine if there is o hormonal imbalance prior to embarking on o course of loser hair removal. A hormonal imbalance responsible for has growth is often easily treated, and con improve the effectiveness and duration of laser hair removal treatments.

Loser hair removal has been revolutionary in managing excess hair growth, and is effective of removing hair from virtually any area of the body including: the underarms, bikini, lip and chin, jawline, legs, back, and stomach. We do not use hairremoval lasers around the eye or to treat monobrow, as these lasers penetrate deeply and should be kept sway from the eyes. Hair-removal losers exploit the difference in color between the hair shaft and the surrounding skin, and thus the losers ‘see’ the dark pigment of the hair shaft and heat it, causing the has to enter a prolonged resting phase. Therefore, to best not to be tan when receiving laser has removal treatments, so the loser con ‘see’ the hair without ‘seeing’ the skin. Because hair removal lasers target the pigment in has shafts, white or blond has does not respond to loser treatment. Lasers are absolutely ideal for treating large areas, such as the legs, bock, underarms and bikini area. Shaving bumps that con occur after shoving or waxing respond extremely well to laser treatment. These bumps often resolve before most of the has in o Oven area is even gone, because after even a single treatment the hair that comes bock is thinner and less likely to result in shoving bumps.

Normally, a series of loser treatments is required for significant has reduction in a given area. Generally, depending upon the ores, treatments ore ideally administered at 6-8 week intervals, and often a series of 4-6 treatments is required to reduce the hair in o Oven ores over the long term. Then longer and longer intervals ore required to keep all of the hair away These intervals ore often measured in years. After o single treatment there will be o significant reduction in has diameter and density that persists for years, but complete removal always requires o series of treatments.

There are 3 main types of hair removal losers, and I will often use all 3 in o single person over time, depending upon how tan they ore, the diameter of the hair and other factors. Patients with light skin or hair often respond best to the alexandrite or diode loser, since these lasers ore strongly absorbed by melanin pigment. There is a special type of loser that works best on skin of color, the Nd:YAG loser. This laser is best at ignoring the pigmentation in skin, while still targeting the hair shaft, and this is the safest laser to use on more darkly pigmented skin types.
