Summer beach time or winter sunshine getaway? It doesn’t matter the time of year, the occasion, or the locale, we all want soft, smooth and yes, hairless, skin. Yet, shaving, plucking or waxing to get the desired results can be time-consuming and downright painful – not to mention the aftermath of ingrown hairs, itchy bumpy skin and the odd nick with a razor. The solution might be simple; laser hair removal.
How It Works
Like our skin, our hair contains melanin, which is what gives our skin and hair its color pigment. The specialized lasers used for hair removal target and heat the individual follicle and actually vaporize the hair, while not heating the rest of the skin around it. Basically, the light from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The damage caused by the laser to the follicle is what inhibits hair growth. Considered a non-invasive procedure, laser hair removal is safe, fast and lasts.
