What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a very popular procedure used today by both men and women wishing to remove unwanted hair from their body. The doctor or specialist shoots a beam of light down to the base of the skin allowing the root of the hair to absorb the light while burning it from the inside. Laser hair removal is considered a relatively painless procedure.

Men's Laser Hair Removal

Both men and women have hair on areas of their bodies that they want to remove. There are many ways to remove hair on a temporary basis such as creams, waxing and shaving, however, most women and men would like a means of permanent hair removal. Although laser hair removal does not remove hair permanently, it is by far the most effective procedure for permanent hair reduction.

Unsightly hair can be an embarrassment whereas smooth skin is generally perceived as more appealing and sexy. Many are now turning to laser hair removal in order to achieve permanent hair reduction. The most common areas for women are the face, arms, underarms, legs and bikini line. For men the most common areas are the face (facial hair removal), chest (chest hair removal) and back (back hair removal). Laser hair removal is considered a quick and relatively painless process that offers a way to save time while allowing one to achieve the appearance one desires.

FDA Approved

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved hair removal lasers for permanent reduction around 1997. When considering laser hair removal, it must be pointed out that the laser doesn't necessarily remove 100% of the hair in an area, although generally the majority of hair in an area can be removed. Most people require several treatments, with a follow up of electrolysis for any remaining hairs in order to achieve complete clearance.

Laser Hair Removal Results

Results can depend depend on many variables, including skill of the practitioner, the type of laser used and how the settings are set. You may want to start with one small area before committing to a set of treatments on many areas at once. The skill of the practitioner is of the greatest importance. Therefore when choosing a laser hair removal doctor or practitioner, make sure that he or she is licensed and certified in laser procedures.
