What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal attempts to permanently remove unwanted hair. This is done by directing a beam of laser light directly into the hair follicle and destroying the root or bulb of the hair. The Food and Drug Administration has stipulated that patients must be advised that even lasers don’t guarantee permanent hair removal. What is available with today’s technology is an effective way to control the appearance of unwanted hair on the face or other areas of the body.
Types of laser hair removal
The Soprano Ice Laser we use here at Prestige Medical Rejuvenation Center features is very effective and safe to use on all skin tones and hair types. Treatments can be performed any time of the year, including on tanned skin. These revolutionary lasers use long-pulse, high-energy lasers that gently pass through the skin to the targeted hair follicle.
The heat from the laser effectively destroys the hair follicle, to deter it from growing back, while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
