How Laser Hair Removal Works

First, the good stuff: the ultimate goal of laser hair removal is to reduce follicular growth until months – or even years – go by before you see any hair growth. As a result, skin is silky-smooth to the touch (not to mention you can get rid of those razors and wax strips!).

Laser hair removal accomplishes this goal using laser heat wavelengths, which target hair follicles at the very root within your skin. These wavelengths heat up the hair follicles, causing them to fall out within the next few weeks after your treatment. Over time and with regular sessions, your hair growth will slow down between treatments to the point where you won’t need a treatment for a long time.

Best of all, laser hair removal is approved by the FDA, so you know you’ll be safe and protected while you’re getting rid of your unwanted body hair.

Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

The best candidates for laser hair removal are those individuals who have unwanted body hair (or just want to stop shaving). So if you have back hair or bikini line hair that makes you feel self-conscious, laser hair removal could lift a huge weight off of your shoulders.

Laser hair removal technology works best on people with dark, coarse hair on medium-to-light skin. You should be prepared to commit to several laser hair removal sessions (spaced four weeks apart) to see ideal results.
