There are many different ways to remove unwanted body hair. Unfortunately, methods like waxing, shaving, and electrolysis are often painful and tedious, with only moderately satisfying results. Laser hair removal is not only more effective than any other method of hair removal, it is also more affordable and virtually painless.
At The Bougainvillea Clinique, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hartog uses advanced laser technology to achieve permanent hair reduction for patients, with excellent results. If you are interested in learning more about laser hair removal at our practice, please call us today at (407) 678-3116.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
When laser energy is applied to your skin, your hair follicles will absorb it more than your surrounding skin, since your hair tends to have more pigmentation than your skin. This is what allows your hair to be eliminated while your skin remains unharmed.
Laser hair removal works best on hair that is in the growth phase, since this is the stage at which hair follicles have the most pigmentation, making them most susceptible to damage from the laser. The majority of your hair is in this phase at any given time. However, be prepared to undergo more than one treatment in order to obtain the best results.
Where Can Laser Hair Removal Be Used?
Laser hair removal can be used on almost any part of your body, including:
- Bikini area
Within a few days of treatment, you should notice hair beginning to fall out in the treated area. This usually continues for one to two weeks. Gently washing the area will help remove the hairs as they come out.
