Laser hair removal is exciting for men and women who want to find a way to get rid of unwanted hair that is not painful like electrolysis or time consuming like shaving. As with other types of treatments many people have questions about the process. Know what questions you want to ask during your consultation to learn further details about the laser hair removal process.
Patients with light skin and dark hair are the best candidates but laser technology has made a lot of advances in recent years so anyone with unwanted hair will see benefits with laser hair removal. The laser targets the melanin in the hair which is why darker hair, with more melanin, is easier to be treated.
Patients are able to get rid of unwanted hair on any part of the body except around the eyes. Common areas for laser hair removal include the legs, bikini area, abdomen, back, underarms, chest, neck, upper lip, and face.
Inquire about the Medical Director of the facility. Ensure he or she is board certified and that there is always a physician on site of the facility when treatments are taking place. Ask if the staff at the laser hair removal facility are all medical personnel or registered nurses. The office should be professional and follows state regulations.
The time varies based on what part of the body is getting treated. However, laser hair removal is much quicker than other hair removal techniques. For example, it usually takes about an hour for a laser hair removal treatment on the back. With electrolysis, the same treatment can take up to 125 hours or more.
