All About Laser Hair Removal

Are you tired of constantly shaving and dealing with unwanted body hair? If so, laser hair removal just might be the thing for you! Of course, there might be a better option for you. Some of those options might be shaving, bleaching, tweezing or waxing.

Each of these has their ups and downs but otherwise might just be better for you in the long run.

Laser hair removals work by the beams of light they produce. They apply the laser device to your skin causing it to get hot. This heat damages the follicle and keeps it from growing in the future.

One of the requirements for this procedure is that your hair is darker than your skin. This procedure is also not recommended for naturally dark people because too much laser energy is absorbed into their skin. If you tan it is also recommended you do not have this laser procedure performed. You can wait until your tan is gone and then proceed.

If you have light skin you can expect an easier procedure as well as fewer treatments along with quicker results. If you are darker skinned it could take longer for results to show and you will have more treatments.

Each person is different when being treated for other things, and the same goes for those being treated for laser hair removal.

Most areas of the body can be treated using laser. The most popular areas:

  • Back
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Bikini Line
  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Upper Lip
  • Abdomen
  • If you have a specific area you want done, talk to your local laser hair removal expert. If you are seriously considering laser hair removal you do not want to tan prior to having it done. The treatment will be less effective this way.

    This popular procedure is for women and men of all ages. Children can have it done granted they are old enough to cooperate. This type of laser treatment is becoming more and more popular with men today. They are having their chests and backs done as well as their abdomen and sometimes face.

    While this procedure is proven to be quite safe, there are still some cons to having it performed. The main concern is over "who" will be giving you the treatment. If this person is not entirely qualified to perform this procedure, they could damage your skin. Be sure you know all about your professional performing this.

    The cost of this procedure can be pricey but it really depends on your location. Every clinic is different so you'll want to check around with different local clinics. Find out what their rates are and maybe even meet with a consultant to see if laser hair removal is right for you. You might think so just because you are tired of shaving. This may not be true, though, so it is better to consult a professional first.

    As with any major procedure you might have done, do all your research on this procedure before making a final decision. If you do not get all the facts before committing to it, you might be disappointed in the end. You might not even be eligible for laser hair removal.
