What are the advantages of Laser Hair Removal?

There are a lot of beneficiaries of laser hair removal out there, who will vouch for its efficiency in getting their unwanted hair reduced for a while or removed it altogether.

Under able guidance, laser hair removal is a very safe procedure.

When you are dealing with a large amount of hair on areas like your back or your legs, laser hair removal is the best procedure out there.

Even if the hair grows back, the new growth will be lighter in color and smoother in texture.

Laser hair removal works best for people with light skin.

Will laser hair removal work for you?

Laser hair removal will not work for every body. Laser hair removal is appropriate for you only if the hair is darker than the skin near the hair. If you have black hair and are tanned, then you need to wait till your tan wears off, before you can under go the procedure.

If you have really dark skin, you may absorb too much laser energy on to your skin and hence the procedure is not suitable for you.

Which are the areas you can treat with laser hair removal?

You can pretty much treat any part of your body except may be too close to your eyes. Laser hair removal is commonly being done on face, upper lip, neck, chest, periareolar, under arms, back, abdomen, bikini line and legs.

Is laser hair removal a painful procedure?

There is some pain involved and it depends on various factors like the patient, his/her skin, hair type etc. If you are lighter skinned or if you have smooth hair, then you tend to feel less pain. The level of pain is not a barrier for most of the patients.

In case the laser hair removal turns out to be too painful for you, you can ask the technician to use some topical anesthetic to numb your skin. Things like a cool laser tip, gel, spray etc. are used in order to reduce the discomfort associated with the procedure. Which one of these is used, depends on the kind of laser hair removal procedure you are under going.

What your skin feels during laser hair removal is not pain; it is more like a discomfort. It is like the feeling of a rubber band hitting your skin and the associated heat of the laser hair removal.

Permanent Hair Removal

None of the technologies available today are perfect in this regard. Even the most efficient technologies can provide only 90% satisfaction in the procedures conducted. So the FDA do not allow any services, procedures or technologies to be marketed for permanent hair removal.
