No one likes to pluck, shave, or wax every few days. What if we told you there was a better answer that could safely and effectively remove unwanted hair for good? Laser hair removal helps patients in Brooklyn, NY achieve hair removal without the pain and time associated with daily grooming. In the following article, we’ll share some of the benefits and costs of laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal successfully reduces unwanted hair in targeted areas of the body. The procedure uses pulses of light to target the pigment in hair follicles, destroying them so they no longer grow in that area. Because laser hair removal targets hair follicles that are in the active growth cycle and hair follicles are all in different stages, multiple sessions will be required to eliminate as much hair as possible. While laser hair removal will not fully get rid of every single follicle, there will be a dramatic reduction.
Areas of the body that can be treated with laser hair removal
There are several different areas where men and women get laser hair removal treatment. Some of the most common areas are:
