Laser Hair Reduction
Laser hair reduction has been the solution of choice for people who want long-term hair reduction. The procedure directs energy at the pigment in your body hair. Heat from the laser triggers a resting phase in active hair follicles, so they produce no hair.
Most areas of the body can be treated with laser hair reduction. A number of sessions are needed to reduce hair in a given area of the body, as hair grows in several phases. The laser only targets active follicles; therefore, several sessions are needed to target hair during every growth phase. Each treatment is customized for your gender, skin type, hair color and both the thickness and coarseness of your hair.
Areas to Treat
Common areas for treatment include:
- Bikini line
Who can benefit from laser hair removal?
Both men and women can benefit from laser hair reduction as long as they have some pigmentation to their hair, and it is most effective for those with dark hair and light skin. That’s because the laser targets dark hair more easily. The goal is to get the hair to absorb the laser light and not the skin. Therefore, this service is not suitable for those with very light pigment (white, blonde or light red hair).
It’s also best for those with realistic expectations since it takes a series of treatments followed by 1-2 annual treatments to achieve the best results. As time goes on, the interval between maintenance sessions gets longer.
