Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal and how does it work?

If you are tired of or getting irritation from shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted body hair, laser hair removal may be a favorable treatment worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S used to reduce unwanted hair.

A specific laser light beams highly concentrated energy targeting the pigmented hair (melanin) down to the hair follicles without damaging skin pigment cells. The light energy then converts into heat that destroys the hair follicles that inhibit hair growth and result in shedding of the nonviable hair to achieve the hair removal.

Hair color and skin type influences the success of laser hair removal with best results on dark hair and lighter skin. Caution must be taken performing laser hair removal on darker skin types to avoid complication of permanent damage of skin pigment cells. Therefore, multiple sessions of laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal and maintenance treatments might be needed to achieve desired hair reduction results.

Unwanted body hair is a problem that everyone experiences. This is why hair removal has become the #1 non-invasive aesthetic procedure. The spectrum uses an 810nm diode laser to remove and permanently reduce unwanted body hair. The pulse repetition rate can be adjusted up to 10-pulses per second allowing both small and large areas to be treated fast and effectively. The 810nm-diode can be used on all skin types.
