The amount of laser skin treatments have nearly doubled since 2000 and the percentage of men getting laser done is increasing by leaps and bounds.
Laser hair removal is a safe, virtually painless method of removing unwanted hair. It works by focusing a laser beam at the base of the hair follicle, which reduces hair growth significantly. Laser Hair Removal can be used on any part of the body, including the most common problem areas: face, back, legs and underarms. Many professionals and celebrities choose laser hair removal as it is considered high quality, most safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair.
While one visit will result in a significant amount of hair removal, it takes about 5 visits over 6-8 months to kill as much as 70% of the hair. Hair grows in cycles so you want to make sure you get as much of it as possible.
A concentrated beam of light is aimed at hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to retard future growth. IPL can remove hair for anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ widely from person to person.
