Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. It is not a surgical process as there is no cutting and stitching involved. Laser hair removal involves the use of pulsating laser beams to burn hair follicles.
The process takes only a few minutes but eliminates the hair follicle of the face, neck, chest, back and other parts of the body. It is a safe procedure with a high success rate. The federal drug authorities have approved laser hair removal, as safe from humans and the procedure can be carried out by dermatologists as well as by trained skin specialists.
Science behind laser hair removal
Laser hair removal uses a selective photothermolysis technology to eliminate hair follicles. The technology sends high-speed laser pulses into the skin that targets only these tissues with black material, that is, melanin.
The laser beam does not target tissues surrounding that particular one and don't cause skin damage. Melanin is responsible for giving the hair and the skin its particular color. Thus targeting melanin eliminates its pigmentation and hair stops growing up. You need multiple laser therapy sessions to completely eliminate hair growth. You can not get the best results with a single laser removal session. Success depends on a number of factors.
