Are you sick of needing to constantly remove unwanted hair using methods like plucking, waxing, or shaving? Millions of people have undergone safe laser hair removal in places like Tampa to free up their time for other activities in their lives. Just a few quick treatments are all that is needed for the permanent removal of unwanted hair in places like your face, legs, arms, or underarms.
How It Works
We are able to permanently remove unwanted hair by using a laser to direct thermal energy into hair follicles, which destroys them and prevents the growth of unwanted hair. The melanin, or part of your hair that produces its color, absorbs the laser light energy, destroying the hair follicle. The precision of the laser allows us to precisely target only individual hair follicles, or many at one time.
Multiple Sessions for the Best Results
Some patients wonder why multiple laser hair removal sessions are necessary to permanently remove hair in the treatment area. The answer lies in the way that hair follicles grow. Each individual hair follicle will be in a certain growth phase at any given time. So when your appointment arrives, some hair follicles will be able to be treated, while others will be in the appropriate growth phase at another time.
Laser Hair Removal Indications
Laser hair removal may be right for you if you are looking to save time getting ready to go out each day. Removing unwanted hair is a tedious activity that takes up a lot of time. Think of how much time that you have spent over the course of your life engaged in this monotonous practice. Think of how much time would be available if you could have unwanted hair removed permanently with a simple procedure.
Your hair will be shaved in the treatment zone prior to your procedure. Our technician will carefully adjust the laser equipment based upon your unique specifications. He or she may transmit a test pulse of the laser equipment before beginning. You may need to wear protective eye wear before your treatment. Your technician will then transmit focused laser light energy into hair follicles in the treatment area to destroy them and prevent the growth of unwanted hair.
