Treating Unwanted Hair
Light-based treatments are highly effective for performing hair removal, one of the most commonly sought after aesthetic procedures in the United States. This popular procedure adds significant profit to any practice and provides a long-lasting solution for patients that are tired of shaving, waxing, and tweezing.
The Hair Removal Procedure
During treatment, a light-based system emits bright flashes of light into the skin where the unwanted hair resides. The hair follicles absorb the light energy, heat up, and become damaged.
Because hair grows in different stages, multiple treatments are needed to target the hair follicles during their growth phase. Each pulse of light energy takes a matter of seconds and treats multiple hairs at once, making this procedure very quick and easy to perform.
Most patients require 5 to 8 hair removal treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve desired results. Light-based systems are some of the longest-lasting methods for treating unwanted hair, eliminating the need for bothersome methods like shaving that need continual management.
