Laser hair removal is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It is a safe, convenient method to reduce hair growth.
Laser Hair Removal Technique
A low energy beam laser is moved over your skin. The energy passes down the hair shaft and is absorbed by hair follicles that are in the active growth phase. This disables the follicle deep within the skin, eventually causing it to fall out.
This procedure takes several minutes to hours depending on the area treated. Most patients feel very little discomfort or pain.
