Most everyone is familiar with laser hair removal, and how it can eliminate hair in unwanted places. However, before undergoing treatment, you should be sure to understand the full extent of the procedure. Read on to learn everything you should know about laser hair removal.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of laser light to damage hair follicles. This prohibits future hair growth, resulting in permanent hair reduction. Most patients require a series of treatments to see desired results. There is no downtime associated with laser hair removal, so patients can return to their everyday activities immediately after treatment.
Who is a good candidate?
Generally, laser hair removal works best on patients with light skin and dark hair. However, Dr. Ellen and her staff use the Cutera Excel HR™ laser to remove hair from all skin types. If you wish to eliminate unwanted body hair, laser hair removal may be able to help. A consultation with Dr. Ellen will help to determine whether this is the treatment for you.
