Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

The best way to understand laser hair removal is to consider how your hair grows. Each hair on your body originates from a tiny pocket in your skin called a follicle. At the base of each follicle lies a root that’s nourished by tiny blood vessels.

The root creates the cells that make up your hair shaft, but by the time they emerge from the follicle, those cells are dead. That’s why your hair, like your fingernails, has no sensation.

All of your hair grows in cycles, and the cycle for body hair only lasts about a month. There are three stages of hair growth ━ active, transition, and resting. Laser hair removal works by damaging your hair follicle during the active growth phase.

How does laser hair removal work?

The process uses concentrated beams of light to target the pigment in your individual hairs. As the pigment absorbs the laser light, heat is produced and distributed to the root. That heat damages the root, preventing normal growth.

The treated hair will die and soon shed from the follicle. Regrowth is impeded and, in some cases, won’t return. It takes multiple treatments to achieve optimal results because not all hair is in the active growth phase at the same time.

Is laser hair removal expensive?

The upfront cost of laser hair removal may seem high, but when you take a long-term view, the expense makes good sense. To begin, all those razors, wax strips, salon visits, and depilatory creams aren’t free.

There’s also the value of your time to consider. Dealing with unwanted body hair can take a significant amount of time and effort, and can also be inconvenient.

Laser hair removal delivers lasting results in just a few short appointments. Perhaps the biggest value is the ability to go about your normal routines without even thinking about body hair.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Most men and women are able to tolerate laser hair removal with ease. You may feel a slight stinging sensation or intermittent “zapping” akin to the snap of a rubber band against your skin. Some people report virtually no sensation during their sessions.
