Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that involves the use of a concentrated beam of light, also known as a laser, to remove unwanted hair. During a laser hair removal treatment, a laser emits light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which is melanin. This light energy is converted into heat, further damaging the tube-shaped sacs found within hair follicles. These tube-shaped sacs are in charge of hair production.
The laser's damage to the sac prevents any future hair growth. It should also be noted that multiple laser hair removal treatments are required to achieve permanent hair removal. In addition, some maintenance treatments may be required.
Individuals with light skin and dark hair are best suited for laser hair removal. However, the treatment is effective on all skin and hair types.
Laser hair removal is used to remove unwanted hair. This procedure is commonly used on the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. It is important to remember that this treatment should not be performed on tattooed skin. It should also not be done on the eyelids or the surrounding area.
