Laser hair removal technology uses a beam of laser light and a constant source of heat that penetrates the hair follicle, destroying it at its root while protecting the surrounding skin. The procedure targets the melanin or pigmentation in the root of the hair follicle. The best candidates for laser hair removal are those people with dark hair and fair or un-tanned skin.
Laser hair removal is only possible when the hair is in its anagen phase (the active growth phase). Although he process is precise and beneficial, it can e irritating to the skin-therefore it is important that the surrounding skin be cooled with a gel or cooling device throughout the procedure. These cooling systems prevent the laser light beam from causing harm or discomfort to the surrounding skin.
Unlike other hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving and electrolysis, laser hair removal is the most state-of-the-art method of removing unwanted hair permanently. It is effective for removing hair from areas of the body including back, chest, legs and face. Although it is the work of the laser that destroys the hair follicle, successful laser hair removal depends on the skill and knowledge of the technician who uses the laser.
