Laser hair removal utilizes a concentrated form of light focused on areas of the skin where there is excess hair or unwanted hair from every part of the body. Laser absorbs color, the dark of the follicle.
The provider will press a hand-held laser instrument to your skin. When the laser is activated, the laser beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which inhibits hair growth. You might feel discomfort, such as a warm pinprick, and you will likely feel a sensation of cold.
Treating a small area, such as the upper lip, might take only a few minutes. Treating a larger area, such as the back, might take more time. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
To start the procedure:
Time: 15 to 30 min per session.
Results: Usually require 4 to 6 session.
Follow Up: The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location.
