How Does a Laser Remove Hair?
Laser hair removal works as the laser emits a light that is absorbed by hair follicles. When this happens, the follicle converts the light into heat, absorbing it and burning up. Afterward, the follicle is no more as it has basically destroyed itself. This only works on hair follicles in the active stage of the growth cycle, which is why numerous appointments are required. Many of the hairs in an area will be dormant during the first appointment, but they become active and will be targeted during subsequent sessions.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
The beauty of this hair removal technique is that it presents fewer risks than other methods. When shaving or waxing, there’s always the risk of drawing blood and being in pain. While some soreness is expected during laser hair removal, it is nowhere near as painful as cutting yourself with a razor or yanking hairs from your body with wax.
Furthermore, the results are incredibly long-lasting. It takes a very long time for any hair to grow back once an entire area has been treated. This means you don’t have to constantly keep up with body hair maintenance in the target area!
