If you're tired of tweezing, waxing and shaving to remove unwanted hair than it might be time to try a new kind of beauty treatment to remove unwanted hair. This being laser hair removal. This treatment is one of the most common beauty treatments done in the United States. So, there's no need to worry that you're alone because there are many women who deal with this common beauty dilemma. Below are some of the common questions women ask about hair removal.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

During treatment, a highly concentrated light is beamed into the hair follicle. The pigment of the hair follicles absorbs the light, thus destroying the hair.

Prior to Treatments

Right before treatments are rendered, the hair will be trimmed a few millimeters from the surface of the skin. The laser will be adjusted to meet the needs of the hair it is treating. This all depends on the coarseness, color, and area of the hair. Courser hair will be treated differently than thinner hair.

During Treatments

The doctor will have you put on protective wear for the eyes. This will protect your eyes from the laser or light used during treatment. The skin will also be protected with a cooling gel or a substance used to prevent damage caused by the laser therapy. This helps the laser to deeply penetrate the skin.

The next step is that the technician will pulse the light and treat the area where the hair will be removed. They can treat one area with one pulse of light. The technician will then wait a few minutes to see if there are any bad reactions to the treatment and if the right settings were used. Once this is done, they will move on to another section and repeat this until the whole area has been treated.

Once the treatment has been rendered, the technician will give you ice packs or lotions and creams with anti-inflammatory properties to help with any type of discomfort that is experienced. You may schedule another appointment 4 to 6 weeks later. 

What areas of the body can be treated?

A lot of women have unwanted hair in various areas of the body—thus making this procedure ideal for those wanting to rid themselves of this problem. Lasers can be used to remove unwanted hair on the face, the bikini line, legs, arms, and underarms, in addition to other parts of the body. Lasers work at a microscopic level by targeting hair follicles while doing no damage to the skin. 

How long do the results last?

Most patients report having long-term, permanent hair loss after about 3 to 7 treatments.
