If you’ve ever stopped to think about how much time you spend shaving, you will be impressed with the time it often takes to get the desired smoothness, not to mention the cost of purchasing supplies like razors, epilators, shaving cream and wax. Now we have a better way that is laser hair removal. Far beyond something you’d just get to prepare for a beach vacation, this treatment can help reduce the hair and smooth feeling on almost any area of the body.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair so you do not have to worry about pain from waxing, the hassle of regrowth, or discomfort from ingrown hairs. Laser hair treatment is perfect for back hair removal amongst other areas on the body where hair presence is considered unattractive.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During this procedure performed in a doctor’s office, pulsing beam targets unwanted hairs at impressive speed. One advantage is that the beam can focus on areas of the body that are populated with particularly coarse hairs without interfering with surrounding areas. This degree of precision means it can also be used effectively on parts of the body that may be hard to manage otherwise, including the upper lip, chin.
As lasers heat the hairs, the change in temperature causes the follicles to become inflamed and in turn, enter a resting phase where new growth does not occur. The process takes place across several sessions and doesn’t require anesthetic.
How many sessions will I need?
The amount of sessions may vary depending on the area being treated. The average amount of session however, is between 6 and 9.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
After the treatment is finished, you’ll notice there’s more time in your schedule to focus on other things, yet you don’t have to sacrifice the look or feel of smoothness that results from shaving.
Is Laser hair removal permanent?
Laser will not guarantee permanent hair removal, most cases will find that the hair will not grow back or will be reduced by up to 80%.
