What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a noninvasive way to reduce or remove unwanted body hair. Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatments in the United States. It can be a good option for those with excess body hair who are looking for a way to effectively reduce or remove hair from both large and small areas of the body.

Before a procedure, a healthcare professional (doctor, medical assistant, or registered nurse) will clean the treatment area.

Anesthetic gel can be used if the area is particularly sensitive. During the procedure, everyone in the room must wear special goggles to prevent eye damage from the laser. Once the anesthetic gel takes effect, the specialist directs a high-energy beam to the desired area. The larger the area to be treated, the longer the procedure will take.

Small areas may only take a few minutes, while larger areas such as the chest may take an hour or more.

Here are some Benefits to Laser Hair Removal:

1. It’s Quick
If it’s a quick solution you’re searching for, laser hair removal is the fastest way to get rid of unwanted hair. You will have to have multiple treatment sessions, but most sessions only take a few minutes. The smaller the treatment area, the less time you’ll spend under the laser.

2. It’s Less Painful Than Other Hair Removal Methods
Laser hair removal is a lot less painful than most people think. Many people equate it to the feeling of snapping a rubber band against the skin. Depending on your threshold for pain, you may find it slightly uncomfortable, but the sessions are so fast that most people find it easy to endure.

3. It’s Precise
Laser technology is incredibly precise, making laser hair removal ideal for people looking to target and remove a few specific hairs. This makes it a great option, even if you’re looking to remove small areas of hair from around the eyebrows, upper lip, nose, or hairline.

4.It Can Remove Hair From Any Part of the Body
With the exception of the eyelashes, laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body. It’s especially ideal for the back and bikini area, which can be hard to reach with razors and extremely painful to wax.

5.It Saves You From Having to Endure Regrowth
Some methods, such as waxing and plucking, require that you endure a bit of regrowth in between sessions. With laser hair removal, you can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin at all times.

6.It’s a Long-Term Solution
Most people see permanent, lasting results with laser hair removal. In some cases, you may need a touch-up a few months or years down the line, but it remains one of the best long-term solutions available.

At minimum, you will see a permanent reduction in hair growth that becomes easier to maintain over time. Because it’s a long-term solution, it’s also cost effective. Over the course of your lifetime, you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars, as there won’t be a need for monthly waxes or razor blade refills.
