Laser hair removal is a good decision if you want to permanently get rid of unwanted hair. A strong beam of light is applied to your hair follicle. This makes your hair inactive, and with a few return sessions, the effects will be permanent.
This method can be used to remove hair from most areas of your body including legs, arms, underarms, neck, back, chest, stomach and upper lip. Before deciding on the procedure, a consultation is necessary. Your medical history should be made known to the dermatologist in case you are on some medication that may interact with the treatment.
Laser hair removal requires the hair to be short but visible. The laser effects hair that is in an active growth stage, because of which more than one sitting maybe needed to remove the hair. It is applied through a hand held laser which is held against your skin. This procedure has been proven to be safe and laser machines these days have cooling mechanisms to minimize discomfort to the skin.
