How does it work?
Using a gentle laser set at a specific wavelength, laser hair removal works through the skin at the hair follicle. There, without damaging sensitive skin, the laser energy is absorbed by pigmentation in the skin. The light is then converted into heat energy, crippling the hair follicle and halting hair growth.
Laser hair removal is effective due to the unique type of laser used during the sessions. The laser energy is carefully controlled in order to ensure precision and patient comfort. Some people report that laser hair removal is more comfortable than tweezing and waxing.
How many sessions do I need?
You will notice that the process of laser hair removal lasts much longer than shaving. Usually, a series of treatment sessions is required for optimal results. However, the treatments are simple and convenient and involve little to no hassle on the part of the patient.
How long does a session take?
You could complete an entire session in just minutes. However, it varies according to the area of your body that requires treatments and many other factors.
