Why You Should Consider Laser Hair Removal
If you are looking to remove unwanted hair you have many treatment options to consider, but of all the available choices few can compare to the benefits laser hair removal can offer. Learn more about laser hair removal by reaching out to your local Beverly Hills, MI, dermatologist, Dr. Indira Misra-Higgins of the Beverly Hills Skin Care Institute.
How It Works
Laser hair removal is performed by using a concentrated beam of light that is made to target your hair follicles. The light is attracted to your hair's pigment, melanin.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Because of the way it works, laser hair removal is very precise, targeting only your hair follicles.
The treatment is very fast, it's noninvasive, and has fewer side effects than many other treatments. It's a much more convenient and painless alternative to treatments such as waxing, plucking, depilatories, and constant shaving.
There are certain risks to laser hair removal, like scars, burns, blisters, and infection, so it's very important that if you're going to have the treatment done you only do so in a professional setting like your dermatologist's office.
Your doctor may not recommend laser hair removal if you are pregnant, taking acne medication, have genital herpes, are prone to cold sores, or if you've had skin cancer.
It may take a few sessions for you to achieve the long-lasting results you're looking for. The reason for this is that hair grows in stages and only hair follicles targeted during the growth stage are affected by the treatment. Sessions are typically a few weeks apart, to allow for different growth phases and to capture as much of the hair as possible.
