Is Laser Hair Removal Effective?

As one of the most common cosmetic procedures done in the United States, laser hair removal is very effective. While the end results greatly depend on you adhering to the regimen and your genetics, you will experience at least a 70% reduction as long as you follow the protocol your laser technician recommends for you.

How Does it Work?

Laser hair removal works by beaming highly concentrated lights into your hair follicles. As the pigments in your hair follicles absorb the light, they become vaporized. When this happens, the hair follicles are disabled, which either completely eliminates or greatly impedes your hair growth.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Master Precision

Since lasers are so precise, the treatment is able to target your coarse, dark hairs. Throughout your laser hair treatment, the precision of the laser leaves your surrounding skin undamaged.

Quick Procedure

In addition to its extreme precision, laser hair removal is a very quick procedure. Since each laser takes milliseconds and is able to treat several hairs at one time, smaller areas can be treated in under a minute. Larger areas like your legs or back could take up to an hour. In either case, laser treatment is precise and quick.

Highly Predictable

With such precision, laser hair treatment is also very predictable. After only five sessions, a staggering 90 percent of patients have shown permanent hair loss. As a result, you will no longer have to continually tweeze, shave or chemically remove unwanted hairs from your body.
