The Complete Guide to Laser Hair Removal Everything You Need to Know

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses laser technology to target specific areas of the body with unwanted hair. The laser emits a pulse of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, causing it to heat up and destroy the follicle. This process can be used to remove unwanted hair from almost any area of the body, including the face, chest, back, bikini line, and legs. Laser hair removal is usually performed as a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart in order to target different stages of the Hair Growth Cycle.

How much it costs?
Laser hair removal is an FDA-approved method of semi-permanent unwanted hair removal. The treatment uses a concentrated beam of light to target the melanin in the hair follicle and destroy it. This process can be repeated every 4-6 weeks until the desired results are achieved. The cost of laser hair removal varies depending on the size of the area being treated, as well as the number of treatments required to achieve desired results. On average, each treatment costs between $200 and $300.

What side effects you can expect?
Laser hair removal side effects are usually mild and temporary. The most common side effect is redness and swelling around the treated area. This usually lasts for a few hours after treatment, but can last up to several days in some cases. Other less common side effects include blistering, crusting, hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin), and hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin). These typically occur when the laser is used on darker skin types.
