Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive method of reducing or eliminating undesirable body hair. Laser hair removal might be a fantastic alternative for people who have excessive body hair and want to successfully decrease or remove hair from both large and small areas of the body.

Why Is Laser Hair Removal Done?

Laser hair removal is a procedure for getting rid of unwanted hair. Popular treatment places include the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. However, except for the eyelid and surrounding area, it is possible to cure unwanted hair in practically every area. 

When there is minimal contrast between hair and skin color, the risk of skin damage increases, but developments in laser technology have made laser hair removal an option for persons with darker skin. Laser hair removal is less successful on hair colors that absorb light poorly, such as red, blond, and white. 

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal


Lasers can carefully target dark, coarse hairs while causing no harm to the surrounding skin.


Each laser pulse lasts a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Small areas, such as the upper lip, can be treated in under a minute. However, larger areas such as the back or legs can take up to an hour.

The Procedure for Laser Hair Removal 

Before the therapy, the area to be treated will be sterilized. When treating a tiny region with sensitive skin, numbing the area to be treated is beneficial. A numbing gel takes about 30 to 60 minutes to work.

The laser treatment will take place in a room that has been specially designed for laser treatments. During the procedure, the skin is kept taut, and the skin is treated with a laser. Many patients describe the laser pulses as feeling like warm pinpricks or a rubber band snapping on their skin.

A laser vaporizes hair to remove it. This produces little plumes of smoke with a sulfur-like odor. The length of your treatment is determined by the size of the area being treated.
