One of the most sought-after beauty procedures in the United States today is laser hair removal. This method involves the absorption of light by the pigment in hair follicles, achieved through the concentrated application of light. As a result of this procedure, the hair follicle is rendered inoperable.
Laser hair removal can effectively target facial hair, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other body hair. However, it is important to note that areas such as the eyelids, the skin around the eyes, and any skin with tattoos should not undergo laser therapy. Lasers are precise enough to remove even the darkest, coarsest hairs without harming the skin around them.
Each laser pulse is so short that several hairs may be targeted at once. In fact, in only one second, the laser can scan an area the size of a quarter. It takes less than a minute to treat a small region, like the upper lip, but a little more time to treat larger areas, such as the back or legs. For most individuals, permanent hair loss will be achieved after three to seven sessions.
Unlike simple shaving, laser hair removal is a medical procedure. Avoid plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for a minimum of 6 weeks before undergoing laser hair removal. This is crucial since the laser can only temporarily remove hair if it reaches its roots.
You should also stay out of the sun for at least six weeks before and after treatment. Laser hair removal is less effective and has a higher risk of complications if done on sun-exposed skin. Refrain from using any blood-thinning medications in the days leading up to the procedure. If you regularly use aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs, consult your doctor.
A laser beam will be absorbed by the hair's pigment throughout the process. The hair follicle will be directly targeted by this light and damaged by the resulting heat. This damage will prevent further hair growth. This is usually accomplished in a series of two to six sessions.
The operator will trim the hair a few millimeters above the skin's surface before starting the laser hair removal treatment. This is a standard procedure done just before the treatment. It is common practice to use a topical numbing agent 20-30 minutes before the laser pulses are administered in order to reduce any potential pain. The technician will also customize the laser settings to account for your skin tone, hair color, and the area(s) being treated.
Depending on the laser or light source being used, you and the technician will need to wear protective eyewear. To help the laser light reach your skin's outer layers, they may either apply a cold gel or use specialized cooling equipment.
The technician will apply a brief burst of light to the affected region. They need to ensure they have the right settings, and that you don't have any adverse effects, so they'll keep an eye on you for a while.
When used correctly, laser hair removal may permanently remove unwanted hair by using heat to damage the hair follicle. It's a quick procedure that, if done by a trained professional, has the potential to provide long-term advantages with minimal drawbacks.
