Laser Hair Removal has been around for 2 decades and is now widely accessible for the public to enjoy the benefits of never shaving or dealing with folliculitis (ingrown hairs) again without having to mortgage their home to afford it.
What Is The Purpose Of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal allows people with unwanted hair to have a more permanent solution than painful waxing or tweezing or time consuming shaving. It is also now available for those with lighter hair and not just dark hair as it was five years ago.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Yes. It is completed through the use of a laser that produces a wavelength of light. This wavelength of light used in laser hair removal treatment targets a specific area of tissue, without damaging or affecting any unnecessary surrounding area. The light emitted from the laser works to heat melanin, or dark target matter, that assists in hair growth. Melanin is vital in producing the color in skin and hair development. When laser light affects this area of melanin, it is impossible for the hair to continue to grow. Although this procedure is useful for those who want unwanted hair banished, it works better for patients with dark, coarse hair.
How To Find Someone To Perform Laser Hair Removal
Unfortunately there are some now saturated markets with good and “not so good” locations performing this treatment so you should really do your “home-work”. You should find someone who is licensed, board certified by your state and experienced (at least 5 years in business). Find someone that will give you a free consultation and spends time explaining the process. Read reviews online-this is a great way to get opinions. Find a reasonable price but don’t always go with the cheapest-a lot of times you get what you pay for and you could even get burned so please don’t let money be the only factor in your decision. Lastly, follow your instinct-I always tell clients “go where you feel most comfortable”.
