Laser hair removal is one of the post popular cosmetic procedures in the United States.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
It is performed by beaming highly concentrated light into the follicles to destroy hair. It is most commonly performed on the face, legs, arms, armpits and bikini line. Laser hair removal offers multiple benefits, including:
- Precision. Lasers can destroy pigment in the hair follicles while leaving surrounding skin undamaged.
- Speed. Lasers can treat a surface area the size of a quarter each second.
- Predictability. After three to seven laser sessions, most patients will not experience new hair growth.
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure performed by a trained cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.
