Female legs against a pastel background with blurred lightsFor women, unwanted hair is a big issue. It gets in the way of a rather smooth and soft skin. And while there are plenty of ways that can help get rid of hair including razor, tweezers and wax, the results are only temporary. None of them can promise you a hair free skin for more than two weeks. This is why laser hair removal is a sought after solution.

Laser hair removal treatments promise to permanently remove hair from skin. This type of cosmetic dermatology may cost much more to have done compared to waxing, shaving or plucking. But you become hair free for longer. In fact, can bid unwanted hair goodbye for a longer time.

How does it work exactly?

Laser hair removal treatment, as the name itself suggests, utilizes a concentrated beam of light. This beam of light is targeted towards the hair. What happens is the pigment absorbs the light being emitted. The light absorption results to a damaged follicle. Because of the damage, future growth of hair is stopped.

What Beverly Hills dermatologists want you to understand however, is that laser hair removal does not get rid of hair forever. But it can stop hair growth for several months or up to years. It varies from one person to another. In any case, it offers the longest time you will be out of hair.

Laser hair removal treatment can be done on the face. It can also be used along the jaw line or around the lips as well as under the chin area.

For the treatment to work, the laser hair removal procedure should be performed during the growth phase. Also, post-zap breakout may be experienced. This means the hair follicles remain open for a few days. It is then recommended that you use an antibacterial lotion in order to prevent blemishes.
