LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Laser hair removal works best on lighter skin with dark hair. Although it is not a guaranteed permanent solution, studies have shown that areas where hair is removed by lasers can generally remain hair-free longer than by most any other hair removal method. If regrowth should occur, the hair is often thinner and lighter in color. 

During a laser hair removal treatment, the Laser emits a powerful beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. The hair follicles absorb the laser energy, impairing the ability to grow new hair. 

Laser hair removal is effective on the face, back, chest, abdomen, arms, underarms, bikini line, buttocks, and legs. The number of treatments required depends on skin and hair color, density, and coarseness of the hair. Several treatment sessions are recommended for the best aesthetic outcome because laser hair removal can only affect hair in the active stages of growth.

The laser utilized in hair removal treatments is also successful in the removal of age spots, sun spots, and dark spots.
