What is Laser Hair Removal?
The word laser refers to light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. These are specialised devices used for generating the wavelength of very high intensity. Different lasers generate a variety of color lights of single wavelengths. Among other applications, the laser is used for removing hair in the body. Excess hair in the body is a problem which has adversely affected both men and women. Fortunately, the laser hair removal is the most efficient way to destroying the hair follicle. As a result, the hair is completely removed from your body.
How many treatments should I require for the treatment?
Laser hair removal works best on hairs with active growth phase. For you to reduce the amount of hair growth, multiple sessions should be done. In fact, three to eight sessions are recommended for 4 to 6 weeks. When you do that, you will achieve approximately 80% reduction of hair. The intervals between every session reduce the growth of hair in some areas of the body such as the face.
