How does laser hair removal work?

The best way to understand how laser hair removal works is to think about how your hair grows normally. Your skin is covered in tens of thousands of hair follicles, which act as tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin.

A hair root lies at the base of each follicle and creates the hair cells that stack atop one another to become strands of hair. This process occurs in phases, including an active growth phase, resting phase, and shedding phase.

Laser hair removal works by using light energy to create heat in the pigment of each hair. That heat damages the hair root, preventing normal regrowth. Laser hair removal is most effective when performed in the active growth phase, so it takes several treatments to achieve optimal results.

Is laser hair removal an uncomfortable treatment?

You’ll feel a “zap” each time the treatment laser heats an individual hair. Some people compare the sensation with the snap of a rubber band against their skin. It can be uncomfortable, but there is no significant pain.

It should be noted that you’ll only feel the “zap” when there is a hair present to be treated. That means the sensations will lessen after your initial treatment, and you’ll feel less and less during each subsequent visit.

If you have sensitive skin, you can ask your practitioner to apply a numbing cream before your treatment.

Isn’t laser hair removal expensive?

At first glance, laser hair removal might seem like an expensive way to eliminate unwanted hair. When you take a long-term perspective, however, laser hair removal offers a great return on your investment.

All the razors, shaving creams, depilatory cream, waxing strips, and trips to the salon cost money. Those expenses really add up over time, and they last as long as you choose to remove unwanted hair.

Laser hair removal allows you to achieve smooth, soft skin in just a few short sessions. You won’t have to worry about regrowth, ingrown hairs, or booking your next waxing appointment.
