Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular non-surgical procedure that became available in 1996. Since then, clients have enjoyed this non-invasive and convenient method to reduce hair growth. The dark pigment in the hair follicle known as melanin absorbs the laser light energy. This light creates heat at the hair follicle cells and permanently disables them. Darker and coarser hairs respond better to laser treatment because it has more melanin. White, blonde, grey, and light red hair do not respond well to laser treatment because they have less natural pigmentation and melanin.
Before your first treatment, an initial consultation will take place where you will be asked several questions about your medical status and conditions, any medications you are taking, sun exposure, and prior treatments. This will determine whether you are a good candidate for laser hair removal We highly recommend that you discuss the laser removal process with your physician if you have any medical conditions.
