What You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is becoming more and more popular these days, and for good reason. This easy and relatively affordable treatment has been simplifying the process of hair removal for decades, and it might just be the solution to your body hair needs.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal uses targeted wavelengths of light, which are then absorbed by the pigment in the hair and transferred to the follicle, where it damages the root and prevents new hair from growing. It is the ideal solution to areas of the body where hair is not supposed to grow, especially those that are sensitive to shaving and often produce unsightly bumps – think armpits and bikini lines. It’s also perfect for areas that are difficult to shave, such as arms and backs.

Does It Hurt?

Laser hair removal is slightly painful, but those who have undergone it say it is no worse than a mild cat scratch. It is certainly less painful than waxing, and some people report it does not hurt at all.

How Long Does It Last?

It’s a common misconception that laser hair removal lasts “forever.” Most likely you will need additional treatments within a few months to a few years. However, each time the hair grows back, it comes back finer. After several rounds, the follicle is likely to stop producing hair altogether.
