Beginner Guide to Laser Hair Removal

How Laser Hair Removal Works

First off, let’s clear up the question of how exactly laser hair removal works to remove unwanted hair. A laser is used to target hair on virtually any area of the body. The light energy from the laser hones in on the melanin, or color, in the hair directly underneath the skin. This injures the cells around the hair follicle in a controlled, precise manner. The surrounding skin tissue isn’t affected by the laser, and the hair follicle can no longer grow hair in the future. 

Laser Hair Removal: A Permanent Hair Removal Option?

One of the main questions that people ask about laser hair removal is whether or not it’s permanent. When you choose a skilled technician like a member of the staff at Laser Affair, laser hair removal provides a 70 to 98 percent permanent reduction for most people. If hair does regrow in the treated area, it will be finer and lighter than before. Keep in mind that certain health conditions and hormonal changes can alter your hair growth in the future. 

Laser Hair Removal Recovery 

Laser hair removal is considered a “lunchtime” procedure, meaning that you can go back to your regular activities immediately afterward — you could get laser hair removal on your lunch break and return to work as usual! Some people may notice that the skin appears pink or red after laser hair removal, but this will fade soon after treatment. 

That said, you do have to adhere to certain guidelines after laser hair removal to protect the health of your skin. For the first few days after treatment, stay out of the sun, saunas, and hot tubs. Doing so could damage the skin. Your Laser Affair consultant will go through all of these guidelines with you during your appointment.
