What is Laser Hair Removal and how does it work?
Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair with a concentrated beam of light (laser).
The pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle absorbs the light emitted by a laser. The light energy is converted to heat, which destroys the follicle and kills the hair, making it impossible for it to regrow.
I'm not sure how many sessions I'll need.
It can take anywhere from 5 to 10 sessions, depending on the area being targeted. The lower legs, bikini, and underarms, in general, respond the best and fastest, requiring the fewest treatments. The face, like the arms, might be one of the most stubborn places that requires additional sessions.
Laser hair removal is permanent, and once the hair follicle is destroyed, it cannot recover; nonetheless, fresh hair development is conceivable. Hormones and medications can impact and be responsible for the growth of new hair follicles in certain conditions. As a result, some people may see new hair growth, which, while much less than before, may necessitate a maintenance session.
Is it necessary for me to grow my hair out?
No. As a result, laser hair removal is a fantastic option. You can shave as usual, and depending on whether the area has speedy hair regeneration, you should shave the area at least 24-48 hours before your visit. The less hair on the surface, the more laser energy is absorbed into the hair beneath the surface. This reduces the amount of heat produced above the skin, making the laser removal process much more comfortable.
