Between enduring painful wax sessions and dealing with pesky ingrowns, hair removal can be a hassle. However, there is a way to stop unwanted hair growth for good. 

Laser hair removal is a comfortable option to permanently stop hair from growing. If you’re wondering about the effectiveness of laser hair removal, you’ve come to the right place. Today, we go over the basics of this procedure and why it works.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal targets hair growth at the follicle. The laser’s energy hits the hair shaft, then travels down until it reaches the follicle. The heat from the laser damages the follicle so that it can’t grow any more hair.

For laser hair removal treatment to be successful, you will need multiple treatments. The reason for this is because the procedure must be performed during the active hair growth cycle — or anagen cycle. 

When the hair reaches the anagen cycle, it can better attract and absorb the laser’s energy. Due to the hair’s growth cycle, you may need six to eight sessions.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Lasers are great for removing unwanted hair from your face, chin, back, bikini line, and other areas.

Here are some of the other benefits of laser hair removal:

Precision

Unlike waxing or shaving, laser hair removal targets the hair without damaging surrounding skin. 

Less Painful Than Other Methods

Although laser hair removal isn’t completely painless, it is less painful than other methods like waxing and tweezing.

Reduced Risk of Infection

Shaving and waxing pose a greater risk of infection than laser hair removal. Also, it doesn’t produce painful ingrown hairs or bumps.
