How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser light removes hair by traveling through the outer layers of skin to target the hair follicles. The laser targets the pigments in the root and regenerative lower portion of the follicle, destroying its ability to grow a hair.
How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?
With the correct number of treatments, laser hair removal can leave you hair-free. The effectiveness of laser hair removal makes it a popular treatment for men and women who want to stop waxing, shaving, or threading. On certain areas, like underarms and bikini area, permanent hair reduction is ilkely. In other hormonal influenced areas like the upper lip of women, maintenance treatment will likely be needed.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The best candidates for laser hair removal have lighter skin (Fitzpatrick Scale I-III) and darker hair. We will assess your skin tone during your consultation to determine if you will make a good candidate. Your safety is our priority!
People with pale blond, red, gray or white hair do not usually make good candidates for laser hair removal. If you have very fair hair, you may not have enough pigment in your hair roots for the laser to destroy them and stop hair growth.
