How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Dealing with and managing unwanted hair may be part of your normal grooming and self-care routine but you may be sick and tired of doing it. Taking care of this hair is time-consuming, frustrating, and can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing.

In this case, a long-term solution such as laser hair removal treatment may be an option for you. It may be time to stop with the shaving, tweezing, and waxing and move forward with laser hair removal so you can look and feel more beautiful and experience less stress trying to hide and maintain unwanted hair.

About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to get rid of unwanted hair. The goal of laser hair removal is to reduce unwanted hair. You may consider doing it if you have a lot of hair growth on your legs, upper lip, chin, bikini line, and armpits. The laser will damage only the hair follicle while avoiding damage to the skin. You’ll see the best results when working with dark hair and light skin.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

A laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair during a laser hair removal treatment. The light energy converts to heat, which essentially damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (or hair follicles) that produce hairs. The produced damage inhibits or delays future hair growth from your body. If the hair does recur it is finer, lighter, and slower-growing, however, most of the follicles are destroyed in the process.

Bright flashes of light are emitted onto the unwanted hair during your treatment session. The light will penetrate through the skin and target the melanin in the hair follicles. The hair will be destroyed when the pigment absorbs light energy. Multiple hairs can be treated simultaneously in some cases. Multiple treatment sessions will be necessary to get to the hair follicles and target them during each of their growth stages.  

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

There are several benefits of laser hair removal you should know about. For instance, the treatments don’t take long and you’ll save money in the long run by treating unwanted hair in this way. 

You can eliminate ingrown hairs and save yourself time grooming and trying to remove your body hair. Laser hair removal is quick, precise, and is a long-term solution for managing unwanted hair. The other upside is that it can remove hair from practically any part of your body, except for eyelashes.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you have unwanted body hair and wish to stop shaving then you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal. No longer will you need to deal with razor burn and ingrown hairs. If you’re self-conscious about hair in any area of your body then this may be the ideal solution for you. 

The technology works best on people with dark, coarse hair on medium-to-light skin. Keep in mind you’ll need to schedule multiple sessions and will need to commit to a few laser hair removal treatment cycles for the longest-lasting and most effective results.
