Laser Hair Removal Manhattan New York
Never think about having to shave, tweeze, or wax again. Say hello to lasers, and goodbye razors. Laser hair removal is designed to permanently remove unwanted body hair by using the light energy from a laser. Unwanted hair is a common problem in women and men. Shaving, waxing, and tweezing only produce temporary results and can generally only be carried out on relatively small areas. Laser hair removal treatment can be used to permanently treat and remove small and large areas of unwanted hair from the body. Best results occur in those with light skin and dark hair, and hair removal works better on coarse hair rather than fine hair.
The laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. Upon absorption, the energy is transformed into heat, which will disable the follicle, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Most treatments require 4-6 sessions for permanent hair removal in any one area. The procedure can be repeated at monthly intervals. The procedure can be uncomfortable, but it is not usually painful. The length of a laser session may be a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. Any redness and swelling of the affected areas usually disappears in a short time and most people return to normal activity right away.
