What You Should Know About Laser Hair Removal

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The Pain-Free, Hair-Free IPL hair removal treatment at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics can be used to remove unwanted hair all over your body. The treatment will be calibrated for your hair and skin type and then the target area will be exposed to quick bursts of light. The pigment in your hair will absorb the energy from the light, which damages the follicle and prevents it from continuing to grow.

How Long Will Laser Hair Removal Take?

Laser hair removal treatments are as convenient as a trip to the spa. You don’t have to give up your entire day, just set aside a small block of time. You’ll likely be able to return home and resume your regular activities right after your appointment.

Laser hair removal works on hair that is in the active growing phase, but all the hair on your body isn’t in this phase at once. Because of this, it usually takes approximately 8 sessions to complete the process. In the weeks following the treatments, you’ll notice your hair falling out without growing back.

How Long Will The Results Last?

Laser hair removal offers a long-term solution to getting rid of unwanted body hair, but occasional maintenance treatments are required for a lasting effect. If you keep up with the occasional treatments after the initial procedure, you will likely never have to shave, wax, or pluck hair again.

If you’d like a hair removal solution that doesn’t involve razor burns, cuts, burning, or sharp pain. Or if you’re simply tired of spending time every day removing unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an excellent solution.
