Popularity Of Laser Hair Removal

By Allision Tallas

Laser hair removal is a relatively-painless hair removal technique that ensures long-lasting results. In most instances, the results last forever. It targets areas of the skin containing melanin.

A beam of light that is concentrated is aimed at the hair. The follicle is damaged enough to retard future growth when the light is absorbed by the pigment. Lasers can remove hair for anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ widely from person to person.

At the moment, it is most effective on those with dark hair and light skin, because of the nature of the laser's ability to be absorbed easily by dark matter, and reflected off light surfaces. This may be problematic if the hair you wish you have removed is very light in colour and you have very fair skin. it might not be as effective.

Laser treatment simply doesn't work on some people, in spite of it being effective and painless in most cases - regrowth occurs at some point in the future or hair growth is not discouraged. For other people, even if there is a dramatic reduction in hair growth, and the regrowth is less visible and thinner, it may not completely go away.

However, laser hair removal is extremely effective for most people, and largely permanent, so when you are deciding areas to be treated, this should be considered.

The cost of laser hair removal is comparable to the cost of a woman's haircut and colour for a session for a small area like the bikini line, with between 6-8 sessions needed on an area to achieve the best results. Don't go with a less reputable practitioner just to save money though. It's worth doing your research to make sure that you are in safe hands, rather than paying less but being treated by someone who isn't sure what they are doing; the safety of your skin and the effectiveness of the treatment is determined by the skill of the practitioner you use.

Laser hair removal is most commonly used for unwanted facial hair, hair in the armpits and bikini line, legs, and forearms. It's safe, effective, and more permanent than any other method such as waxing, plucking, shaving, or electrolysis, and so is often the preferred method of hair removal now.

A certain percentage of hairs are in the "resting" phase at any given time, rather than a growth phase. The laser will not be effective on those resting hairs, which is why, on average, five treatments are necessary in each area to achieve maximum results.

As soon as further hair growth appears, more treatments can be done. Certain parts of the body will respond more rapidly whereas others might take much longer to show effects, due to the variation in the number of hairs in the resting phase. The face, for example, usually responds slower than a bikini line.
