Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses laser energy to target and destroy hair follicles. The treatment can be used on any area of the body where unwanted hair growth occurs, and is often used to remove facial hair, underarm hair, bikini line hair, and leg hair.
What Is Laser Hair Removal/Reduction?
The procedure itself is relatively simple and quick. A small hand-held device is used to direct the laser beam at the treatment area. You may feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation as the hair follicles are destroyed. Afterward, the treated area may be slightly red or swollen. This is normal and will subside within a few hours. You may also notice some shedding of the treated hair in the days following your session.
