How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

An effective way to remove unwanted hair is by the laser hair removal process. This is quick and gentle and ensures that the hair is gone for good. So no more shaving or waxing of hair from that part of the body; you will just have to take care of the area.

This treatment is effective in the removal of hair from all parts of the body except the eye. The composition of the eye detracts the use of the pulsating light near it in case it causes some damage to the eyes.Otherwise, you can have the hair removed from face, armpits, back, chest, legs and the abdominal area. This is an effective treatment in helping that bikini line become more alluring.

The treatment method requires gel to be applied to the area where you want the hair removed from. This gel helps in keeping the skin cool. With the help of a hand held laser machine, the professional who is an expert at laser hair removal does his job. In the process, he points out the light source to the shaft of the hair follicle.

This light is intense and when it goes into the shaft, it destroys it completely and hair growth stops in that area. The process is time consuming and usually does not get finished in one session. This also however depends on the body part being treated.

The laser itself gets converted into heat, which is absorbed by the gel applied in the area immediately and there is no harm to the skin.  Many times, the growth does not stop entirely, but certainly gets reduced considerably. The best part of the laser hair removal process is that it can be customized to be able to treat different skin type. If you have an oily skin or a dry skin or a combination skin, the hair removal therapy by lasers works equally well for all.

However, laser hair removal is not suitable for someone who has tanned skin and has light body hair on the body. For them, the laser hair removal treatment is not viable and suitable enough.
