Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is not for everyone. The absolute requirement is that one's hair must be darker than the surrounding skin. Dark hair absorbs more laser energy and is easier to treat. Coarse dark hair responds the best to laser treatment. Light hair is more difficult to treat. Blonde or red hair is very difficult to treat. Multiple treatment sessions are required, and results are variable.
The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light and converts the light to heat. The heat, in turn, damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow. It is important to treat each follicle during the growth cycle for maximum hair reduction.
Any area, except adjacent to the eye, can be treated where there is excess hair. The most common areas requested are the face, upper lip, neck, chest, underarms, back, abdomen, bikini line, and legs.
