Laser Hair Removal

There is no normal amount of body hair. In fact, the amount can vary greatly between individuals. While women normally produce low levels of male hormones (androgens), sometimes a woman’s body produces larger amounts of this hormone. This can lead to unwanted hair growth. In most cases, the exact cause is never identified. It tends to run in families. Many women find it bothersome, or even embarrassing.

Laser Hair Removal vs. Other Methods

● Tweezing is fine for small, isolated areas like eyebrows. It can be performed daily at home.

● Shaving can be used to remove hair from legs and underarms. It should not be used on arms or on the face, as the hair tends to return quickly and be darker and coarser.

● Waxing can be done at home or in a beauty salon. It is fast, but like shaving, it generally needs to be performed again and again. It is also slightly painful. Lasting skin damage can occur due to the use of hot wax in place of wax strips.

● Laser removal is the use of a very concentrated light beam into hair follicles to eliminate the hair. It targets the hair’s root and can lead to permanent loss of the hair follicle after 3-5 treatments. The procedure must be performed by a skilled technician or doctor to prevent skin damage. It is a fast procedure. Laser hair removal removes hair in a quarter size location in just a second.
