Laser Hair Removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn’t result in permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
The laser has revolutionized the world of aesthetics, favoring the performance of multiple types of treatments (lifting, skin blemishes, spider veins, lipolysis, cellulite, hair removal, wrinkle removal, etc.), generally providing more effective solutions, less invasive or aggressive and with fewer adverse effects.

Laser hair removal has radically changed the landscape to the extent that it allows you to avoid other methods such as waxing, shaving or depilatory creams that provide temporary solutions that not only do not prevent hair from growing back, but also make the hair acquire greater strength. strength and thickness.

On the other hand, the laser allows hair removal from all areas of the body, definitively eliminating 90% to 95% of the hair, reaching what is already called permanent hair removal.

At present, there are different types of lasers for hair removal whose effectiveness on different skin types and hair coloration has been demonstrated, as long as they are handled by an expert, otherwise, burns, irritation and redness of the skin may occur. the skin etc.

However, it should be mentioned that laser hair removal has its limitations, since its effectiveness depends on the amount of melanin contained in the hair and in the skin, since it acts directly on it, penetrating the hair follicle and burning it. In this way, depending on the type of laser used, all those people whose skin is of a phototype less than or equal to VI can be depilated.

In the same way, the effectiveness of laser hair removal loses effectiveness to the extent that the color of the hair is lightened (gray hair, blondes and redheads) and its thickness is reduced. Even so, the main advantage is that it allows you to eliminate the most visible ones, that is, those that most harm body aesthetics.
