If you’re looking for a long-term solution to hair removal, there are a variety of options to consider, from waxing to laser therapy. Laser hair removal, however, offers the most permanent solution to removing body hair from almost any area of the body. Learn more about laser hair removal treatment to determine if it’s the right choice for you.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of removing body hair with highly concentrated light pulses. Once you’ve chosen your target area, the laser is set to a specific wavelength based on the color and thickness of the hair you want removed, as well as your skin tone. Your hair absorbs the laser light and then damages the follicle’s root, weakening the hair and reducing growth. The most common places for laser hair removal are the upper lip, sideburns, legs, bikini area, armpits, and chest.

How Do You Prepare?

Depending on the area you’re having treated, appointments can last from five minutes to an hour for up to seven sessions to achieve the most permanent results. Your beauty professional will determine the duration and number of sessions needed based on the areas you want to treat and the thickness and color of your hair.

What Are the Benefits?

With the right amount of sessions, laser hair removal provides the most permanent solution to body hair. Most individuals see up to a 90% decrease in body hair, with most noticing a difference after their first session.
