What is Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure designed to significantly reduce unwanted hair growth on the face and the body. Using focused beams of light, Laser Hair Removal targets hair follicles beneath the skin.
Laser energy is then absorbed by melanin in the hair root and converted to heat. This process effectively destroys and weakens follicles, without harming skin our surrounding structures.
What Happens During a Laser Hair Removal in Arlington Treatment?
Laser Hair Removal at Laser of Arlington is a quick, easy and virtually painless process. Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, laser hair removal can take 10-to-60 minutes.
During the procedure, a handheld device is used to precisely deliver light-based energy to the targeted area.
Most patients note that the treatment is more comfortable than waxing or other hair removal options and feels similar to a rubber band lightly snapping against the skin.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Patients should avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least six weeks before treatment.
It’s also important to discontinue waxing, plucking, or other techniques that remove hair with root intact for four-to-six weeks prior to laser hair removal.
