Laser hair removal is one of the best treatments for unwanted hair because it can provide longer-lasting results than shaving or waxing. It works by destroying the hair follicles, thereby inhibiting hair growth. While laser hair removal is primarily intended for larger areas of skin such as the back, legs, and stomach, it can also help to remove unwanted hair from the face, underarms, and bikini line.
Diode laser treatment is suitable for patients with dark as well as light skin tones.
Laser therapy usually works best for people with dark, coarser hair, as the rays tend to be attracted to the color pigments in the hair follicle. Laser rays destroy the follicles so that no hair can grow from them and target the pigments to minimize the appearance of any remaining hairs.
Laser treatment offers numerous benefits to men and women who prefer to avoid shaving, waxing, and other methods of hair removal. Each session of laser hair removal takes just 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the skin area to be covered.
The laser rays work with high precision and target the hair selectively without causing damage to the skin. The results of laser hair removal can last for several months. Patients may need maintenance sessions once or twice a year.
