Imagine not having to shave, tweeze, wax or endure the tedious process of electrolysis again. Now with laser hair removal, lasers can safely and effectively eliminate stubborn and annoying unwanted hair using True lasers. Special lasers for hair removal are noninvasive therapy devices designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body.
Although there are no guarantees, laser hair removal has become one of the most sought after methods for long-term and/or permanent hair reduction, worldwide, with most patients feeling extremely satisfied.
Laser hair removal works by concentrating beam of light aimed at hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to retard future growth. Lasers can remove hair anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ from person to person.
Due to the fact that hair is only treatable in the “active” phase of the growth cycle, several treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart is usually necessary to obtain good hair reduction. Some of the hairs will be eliminated immediately, yet it may often take at least two weeks to really notice hair extrusion (hair detaching from the follicles).
In some cases, patients may need to wait two to eight weeks for all treated hair to fall out. Many patients have noted a 70 to 80 percent reduction after sticking with the treatment regimen.
