Laser hair removal is one of today's most common cosmetic procedures.
Unlike waxing or shaving, the goal of laser hair removal isn’t just to temporarily get rid of the hair. It’s to stop the growth of hair once and for all by destroying the germ cells in the hair follicle that produce it in the first place.
Getting to the root of the problem
The goal of laser hair removal is, ultimately, to stop hair growth. To do that, the procedure has to do a little damage.
Once a cell hits temperatures approaching a sizzling 140 degrees Fahrenheit, it starts to fall apart. The hotter the temperature and the longer it’s maintained, the higher the chance the cell will die. Laser hair removal capitalizes on this. By damaging the germ cells in the follicle, it keeps the hair from growing altogether.
People who undergo laser hair removal have to go more than once: To permanently damage the follicles producing the hair, you have to have it done roughly every six to ten weeks.
And, as always, beauty has its price. The process of shooting laser beams at your hair produces a brief flash of pain, sort of like what you might feel if someone snapped a rubber band against your skin.
Laser hair removal has become popular because of its speed and efficacy, although some of the efficacy is dependent upon the skill and experience of the laser operator, and the choice and availability of different laser technologies used for the procedure. Some will need touch-up treatments, especially on large areas, after the initial set of 3-8 treatments.
