About Laser Hair Removal

by : Ivar Rudi

Laser Hair Removal is one type of hair removal that can help you remove unwanted hair from your face or other parts of your body. This way of removing hair from your skin is less messy and/or less painful than other types of systems such as shaving, plucking, or using depilatory creams. It is even less painful than waxing.

To determine the best type of laser to use for your hair removal you will need to consult a physician. The type of laser that you will use is depends upon the type for your skin. Also you will need to know what kind of precautions you need to take before having your treatment. For instance, you will need to stay out of sunlight for a week prior to treatment.

Those with light skin are more prone to having successful treatments then those with dark colored skin. However, it is possible that those with darker skin can use this treatment. The dial on the laser treatment just has to be pointed to the appropriate setting for a particular skin color. Usually to make sure that this area will work well on a person, usually a small patch in an inconspicuous area of a person's body will be tested. If the small amount of laser treatment works on this spot then it can be applied to the rest of the body as well.

The way that laser hair removal usually works (and this is usually applied to facial hair) is by destroying the root of a group of hair follicles. This is done with the use of a low energy laser beam. Usually this is a fairly painless procedure. However, if you feel uncomfortable during the process then the physician can give you a topical anesthetic to numb you during this procedure. Usually anesthetics are not needed, but you can know that they are there if you feel more comfortable with them.

Laser hair removal, which is most often done on the face, can be done with laser light equipment such as the Light Sheer Diode laser system and the IPL. These are the most common ones to be used. Laser treatment can cost you more up front than other hair removal treatments but can prove more cost effective for you in the long run. You may have to go back for a series of visits before you see the desired result. However, you will be glad you did, and you will feel more confident about yourself, especially out in public.

The treatment is intended to be a hair removal system that is permanent. You will no longer have to shave, or wax, use cream-as mentioned earlier. Instead, the laser hair removal can provide you with a whole new look and a whole new you.
