Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair growth on the face and body is a common aesthetic concern, but often leaves people feeling too embarrassed to seek medical help. While shaving, waxing and threading are useful to temporarily remove the unwanted hair, the effects are only that – temporary. It is also not unusual for the hair to grow back thicker, faster and darker. Alternatively, Laser Hair Removal is a safe and effective treatment to remove unwanted hair in areas of concern, leaving you with a naturally soft and smooth appearance.
How it works:
Laser Hair Removal works by targeting hair follicles going through the anagen phase (also known as the active growth phase). Using controlled pulses of energy from the laser beam, active hair follicles sitting just beneath the surface of the skin are targeted to disrupt the growth cycle. The energy heats the hair and destroys the root to safely kill the follicle and prevent the hair from growing. Since lasers target pigmentation (in this case, the colour pigmentation of the hair) the treatment does not touch or damage surrounding areas of tissue. Since not all hair follicles will be in the growth phase at the same time, a course of treatment is recommended to ensure the growth of all follicles is disrupted.
