Procedure of Laser Hair Removal

Before the procedure starts, the medical specialist cleans the treatment area. If the body part is sensitive, a numbing gel is applied to numb the area. Before starting the treatment, the specialist wears a pair of special glass to protect eyes from the laser light. He focuses a beam of the laser on the target area. The time of the treatment can vary, depending on how smaller or bigger the area is. If the area is larger like the chest, it can take an hour or more. During treatment, some patients experience nothing while some experience sunburn like sting.

How Does Laser Work for Hair Removal?

Laser hair is the technique that works by using concentrated light on the hair follicles. Pigments of hair follicles absorb the light and vaporize. Therefore, darker hair follicles absorb the laser light more effectively than blonde, gray and white hair. In other words, the treatment is ineffective on blonde, gray and white hair. Women with light skin tone are considered ideal for the treatment. Women with dark skin need a special type of laser to detect hair against the skin.
