How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that concentrates light directly onto hair follicles, destroying the hairs. The follicles absorb the light and it essentially damages the hair at the root in the process. The laser’s energy is attracted to the pigment of hair – just like how sunlight is attracted to darker shades of color. For this reason, laser hair removal works best on those with dark, coarse hair and a fair complexion. However, people with darker complexions can still get great results.
The laser hair removal process does take a while. For lasting results you need to attend at least a couple sessions to guarantee that the hair won’t grow back. However, hair will start to thin after one or two sessions.
Are there any side effects of laser hair removal, and does it hurt?
Most people say that there is minimal pain involved. The best example we found, was that it feels like a snap of a rubber band directly on the skin. However, compared to waxing and threading the pain is very limited. There are also numbing creams available for more comfort. After the procedure, the area/areas that were treated will feel like a patch of sunburn from a long day at the beach. Cold water, or moisturizer could help this. In rare occasions some blistering may occur, most commonly with people of darker complexions.
Laser hair removal costs
People probably think this procedure would break the bank, but surprisingly it is not as costly as many other cosmetic procedures. It costs around $235 a session. However, cost varies widely depending on the area you are getting treated, the number of treatments required, the country you are in, and the time required. Most places also offer payment plans as well and free consultations.
