Hair removal is not only a very popular topic in the summer months. There are countless ways to get rid of those annoying hairs on legs, arms, in the bikini line and the like. But laser treatment is still the most effective.

The bundled light of the laser is absorbed directly by the dye melanin in the hair and the hair roots are at the same time desolated. All hair that is in the growth phase at the time of treatment responds and subsequently falls out.

The advantages are obvious. With Laser hair removal in NY, through which hair growth will drastically reduce, so you in the future not to the shaver or epilator must resort. It can be used all over the body and work on all areas of the skin. The pain is also kept within limits during the treatment, as modern devices contain a so-called “chill tip” (cooled attachment). Anesthetic ointments have also proven to be very effective.

Good to know

Basically, the treatment works better for people with light skin and dark hair than for those with light skin and light hair or dark skin and dark hair. The greater the color contrast between skin and hair color, the better the laser can work.

The choice of the studio is also particularly important, as incorrect laser hair removal often results in burns and scars. A detailed consultation is the most important thing before starting the sessions!

Permanent hair removal with laser

Epilation is one of the most effective types of hair removal. The process is actually quite simple. The wavelength of the laser light is glided into the hair follicle through the melanin in the hair. There it is then heated to over 60 ° C. This destroys the hair roots without damaging the surrounding tissue. Several sessions are necessary for a perfect result. Since this method requires trained handling of the laser, it cannot be carried out in a cosmetic studio, but only by a doctor.

How many sessions does laser hair removal take?

Around five to ten treatments are required for smooth skin. The reason for this is the alternation between growth and resting phases of the body hair. As a rule, only 20 to 30% of the hair is in the growth phase at the same time. Only these can then also be effectively obliterated using a laser. That is why it takes a few months to achieve the perfect result.

Tips for laser hair removal

Before the first session, hair should be removed with a dry or wet razor. Ideally, this should be done the day before the treatment. People who have previously removed their hair by waxing, sugaring or epilation must stop this procedure three to four weeks before the laser application. This is the only way that all hair can grow back normally. Otherwise the laser beam cannot be directed deep enough into the hair follicle. After the session, the skin is very sensitive. The sun should be avoided both before and after laser hair removal. It is therefore advisable not to have this method carried out in the summer months.
