How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using heat to damage the hair root that creates hair cells. Your body is covered in follicles, each of which acts as a tiny channel from the surface of your skin to the base, where a hair root makes the cells that stack atop each other to form strands of hair. 

At Visiting Medical Clinic, a state-of-the-art laser platform delivers laser energy in quick pulses. The laser is drawn to the melanin in your hair, which is the pigment that gives your hair its color. That laser energy is converted into heat, which travels through the hair shaft to the root. A portion of treated hair roots will be unable to produce new hair growth. 

Hair grows in phases, including resting and shedding phases. Laser hair removal is most effective when performed during your hair’s active growth phase. That’s why it takes a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. 

What are some common laser hair removal treatment areas?

Laser hair removal is a great fit for eliminating unwanted hair on many different areas of your body. Some of the most common areas of focus include:

  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Bikini line
  • Buttocks
  • Face

You can even have spot treatments to remove hair on small areas, like the nape of your neck or your fingers and toes. 

What should I expect during laser hair removal treatments?

You’ll begin by removing clothing in the area of focus. As you rest on the treatment table or chair, Amanda moves the treatment handpiece across the treatment area. The device delivers laser energy in pulses, which you can hear. 

You’ll feel a mild stinging sensation during each pulse as the laser heats the hair follicle. Some people liken the experience to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. It’s important to note that you only feel this sensation when there is hair to be treated so that subsequent sessions will be more comfortable than your initial visit. 

If you have especially sensitive skin, let Amanda know. She can provide a special numbing cream to reduce sensation in the treatment area. Book a visit today to experience laser hair removal for yourself. You can reach the office online or by phone.
