Traditional methods for removing hair like shaving, tweezing, and waxing can be very cumbersome and time consuming for women. Laser hair reduction offers a safe and very effective medical procedure performed commonly in the U.S. to permanently terminate hair growth from unwanted areas. The procedure is extremely precise and takes only a few minutes to remove hair from small areas, such as the upper lip or chin, and about an hour to treat larger areas, such as the back or legs. The procedure works by exposing hair follicles to highly concentrating light pulses, prohibiting them from growing hair after exposure. Laser hair reduction may require 3–5 sessions for best outcomes, and when performed properly, the procedure successfully terminates hair growth from treated areas in approximately 90% of women.
While laser hair reduction is fast and easy for patients, it is still a medical procedure that requires an experienced technician to ensure it is performed safely and effectively.
