Removal of unwanted body hair is one of the top concerns of hundreds of Americans. It is not surprising then that hair removal is a very popular procedure in the U.S. But undergoing regular tweezing, waxing, and shaving of body hair can get really taxing. This is why hair removal using laser light is often seen as the smarter, more efficient choice.
Laser removal can be undertaken in almost all areas with unnecessary body hair from the face and arms to the legs and bikini line. It is not a procedure merely for women, as some men would prefer to eliminate the pesky ingrown beard and the discoloration that goes with shaving.
With the use of specialized laser, such light is beamed into and absorbed by the hair follicles. The unwanted hair is destroyed in the process. Since the procedure targets the melanin pigment present in the hair follicles, laser removal is ideal for individuals with darker hair and a greater contrast between hair color and skin pigment.
Why is it a better procedure? Laser hair removal is fast and precise: every removal session averages just one to two hours by precisely targeting unwanted hair areas and leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. More importantly, permanent hair loss is achieved after 3-5 sessions. This means goodbye to waxing and frequent trips to medspa clinics.
