Back to Basics: Laser Hair Removal

No Comments on Back to Basics: Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal may sound complicated and futuristic. In reality, though, it’s a simple procedure that’s been around for over a decade. At a basic level, a trained technician or doctor will use a focused beam of light, which contains a single, powerful wavelength to remove the undesired hair. When the doctor applies the laser to the skin area containing the unwanted hair, only the skin that immediately surrounds the dark hair follicles absorbs the intense laser energy. The follicles respond to the heat by releasing the hair, and consequently, stop producing new hair after the treatment.

Before the latest advances, laser hair removal was most effective with dark hair and light skin. Now, however, the improvements in laser technology allow dermatologists and cosmetic doctors to treat a variety of skin tones and hair colors and achieve lasting results. As this technology continues to improve, more and more of my patients are enjoying the benefits of laser hair removal in Edmonton for an end to time-consuming shaving, plucking and waxing.
