There are a lot of men and women who are plagued by excessive hair growth in areas where they just don’t want it. This has led to people spending a lot of money every single year on products, devices and machines all designed to remove this unwanted hair. Couple that with the countless hours of time that are spent every year shaving, waxing, using electrolysis or using some other form of hair removal and it is clear to see that unwanted hair brings with it a lot of hassle. Fortunately, if you have unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be used to help you get rid of it.
Laser hair removal is more popular now than it has been in recent history. This treatment is extremely versatile. It can be used in areas that range from the face to the arms to most any other part of the body. Laser hair removal can drastically reduce the growth of unwanted hair in a permanent way. The risks associated with laser hair removal are very minimal. It is important to realize that laser hair removal is a medical cosmetic procedure. So, laser hair removal treatments should only be performed by trained professionals.
Laser hair removal treatments work by emitting heat energy that is then absorbed by the hair and transmitted to the follicles. When this heat energy hits the follicles, the follicles are damaged. When a hair follicle is damaged, it is unable to produce hair for a period of time. When it does start to produce hair, the hair that it produced is drastically thinner and lighter, which is a good thing. The procedure does not affect your skin because your skin is able to cool down a lot faster than the treated strands of hair.
Laser hair removal is not designed to permanently remove your hair. It can lead to a permanent reduction in hair growth, and it will leave you with an extended period of time where you do not have to worry about removing unwanted hair.
