How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Posted on Dec 31, 2019

If you are tired of using a manual shaving tool to remove the hair on your body every week, it’s time to take a look at laser hair removal and what it can offer you. It is done using a laser with a light that absorbs the melanin (pigment) in the hair. Heat is produced by the light energy, which in turn damages the hair and delays or inhibits hair growth.

This type of hair removal does not usually provide permanent results but can delay the growth of hair for long periods of time. Maintenance treatments are usually required and highly recommended.

The removal of hair using this method is best suited for people with dark hair and light skin. It can be successfully used on the legs, upper lip, bikini line, chin, and armpits or just about anywhere else where unwanted hair is appearing.

The best results can be seen when there is a clear contrast, between the colour of the skin and the hair. As well, it is not as effective for hair colours such as white, blond, red and grey since they don’t absorb the light as well as dark hair.

Laser hair removal is a relief when you’re tired of shaving week after week and are looking for a cost-effective solution. While it’s not permanent, you’ll definitely reap the benefits of not having to shave regularly.
