What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S. It allows men and women to remove unwanted body hair and prevent it from growing back. After treatments, a person may be able to eliminate the need to constantly shave, wax, or epilate. The most commonly treated areas include the upper lip, underarms, backs, and bikini lines.
What can I expect at a laser hair removal appointment?
A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin before the procedure. The laser is guided over the treatment area, targeting the dark pigment of each hair and killing the follicle beneath. Most people experience a noticeable reduction in the amount of hair re-growth after a single treatment. Because hair follicles are developing at different rates, it may take four to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve maximum hair loss.
