What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a laser treatment for removing unwanted hair. It has been used in the medical field for over 20 years, and more recently it has become popular as an option to laser treatments at beauty salons. It works by targeting dark pigment in the skin called melanin. Laser light energy targets the follicle of the hair, which damages it so that new growth cannot come from it.
Laser hair removal is a laser treatment for removing unwanted hair. It’s safe, effective, and permanent – laser hair removal can be used on any skin type or color. This laser treatment doesn’t use chemicals, so there are no side effects to worry about!
How Laser Hair Removal Works?
In laser hair removal, the root of each follicle is cut and pigment producing cells are destroyed. This prevents new hairs from growing in this area by preventing regrowth at a higher level than before treatment with an epithelial Terminator device or epilator-like machines that pull up all existing melanin pigments present on top layers only (dens), leaving minimal dark stubble behind as one may expect after shaving cream has been applied.
How Laser Treatment Can Be Used on Other Skin Problems?
Although laser treatment is normally associated with the removal of tattoos or improving one’s appearance, it can also be used to treat other skin conditions. Here are some examples of other skin problems that could be treated by laser therapy:
1. Warts – According to a study done in Canada, nearly 80 per cent of warts disappear within two months after having undergone CO2 laser therapy. What is fascinating about this study was that there were no serious side effects noted even after 20 years following the said treatment! The only reported complication was redness and swelling which disappeared just before or just after 24 hours.
2. Pyogenic Granuloma – This is a fairly common type of overgrowth of capillary-type blood vessels on the skin. Many doctors think that it is caused by hormones, genetic factors or trauma to the specific areas on which they develop. In more severe cases, liposuction surgery could be done followed by a laser therapy procedure for better results.
3. Seborrheic Keratosis – Also referred as SKs, these are common growths of cells from the outermost layer of one’s skin that looks like warts or moles and can appear anywhere on a person’s body. They do not cause discomfort but only turn into cosmetic problems especially if located in visible parts of the body such as face and arms. For mild cases, liquid nitrogen cryotherapy is usually performed where liquid nitrogen is dab onto the growth so it would go away within 2-3 weeks. The problem with this method is that although the SKs disappear, they usually leave scars behind especially if done on darker skinned people. To prevent scarring, it is recommended to undergo laser therapy which would basically vaporize the mole or SK without leaving any scars behind.
4. Hypertrophic Scars – The general public associates this condition with keloids but hypertrophic scars are actually smaller bumps of skin-like tissue that appear red and raised, giving off an angry appearance. They often occur after surgery because these areas need to be cut for surgical procedures to take place. Laser treatment can flatten them out, making them less noticeable and helping the patient recover faster from surgery wounds by reducing pain and inflammation.
5. Keloids – Although they are not the same as hypertrophic scars, these large and raised growths of skin can actually look like them when in an advanced stage. This is caused by a faulty response from the body when it tries to repair itself after getting injured or when tissue is cut away during surgery. Laser therapy would be highly effective when it comes to keloid treatment because this would encourage collagen production which would lead to the normal repair of tissues and reduce redness and swelling in affected areas.
How Often Should You Do Laser Hair Removal?
You can do laser costs about $1,000 per treatment to remove hair permanently.
Going by the numbers, you can shave your legs for more than 16 years and save money.
However, if you’re really serious about staying smooth year round, we suggest getting multiple treatments — ideally 8— 12 weeks apart — with a touch up before summer and right before swimsuit season. This will leave little time for stubble to grow in between visits and give you maximum results. But how often is too often? That depends on your skin and treatment settings: “If someone has very dark hair or very pale skin, they’ll need more treatments,” says Raphaela Richter , M.D., an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. “It’s really a matter of finding what works for you.”
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal over Traditional Beauty Treatments?
Laser hair removal is a popular beauty treatment that has been embraced by both men and women. In fact, many men choose laser hair removal as a method of keeping facial hair under control. Many people say it’s the only way to truly remove unwanted body hair for good. In addition, the benefits of laser hair removal over other beauty treatments are numerous.
In comparison to shaving, laser hair removal does a much better job at preventing razor bumps from happening when you’re trying to get rid of annoying body hair. If a person shaves too closely or shaves continuously in one area, they may notice red bumps and irritation. The truth is that these irritating little red bumps aren’t caused by shaving itself . The root cause of these unpleasant side effects is actually ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs occur when the hair grows back under the skin rather than out through the surface. This results in your body’s immune system reacting by creating inflammation around the affected area which can be very painful and itchy.
With laser hair removal , you won’t have to worry about razor bumps or ingrown hairs because the laser kills the root of each follicle. Because it’s permanent, you don’t have to worry about trying to get rid of unwanted body hair every day when you shower or shave in addition to any other beauty treatments that may be irritating your skin.
