How does Laser Hair Removal works?

Updated: 6 days ago

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to remove unwanted hair. During the procedure, a laser emits a highly concentrated beam of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, which causes damage to the follicle and prevents future hair growth.

The process works best on hair that is in the active growth phase, which is why multiple treatments are usually required to achieve the desired results. The number of treatments needed depends on various factors, including the color and thickness of the hair, the area being treated, and the individual’s skin type.

During the procedure, the area being treated will be cleaned and a cooling gel or device may be applied to the skin to help protect it and reduce any discomfort. The laser is then placed on the skin and emits a beam of light that targets the hair follicles. The laser’s energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, which damages it and prevents future hair growth.

After the procedure, the treated area may be slightly red and sensitive. Over time, the treated hair will fall out and the area will become smooth and hair-free. It is important to avoid direct sunlight and to use sunscreen on the treated area for several weeks following the procedure to protect the skin and prevent any potential complications.
