What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Published on April 27, 2015

One of the most requested cosmetic procedures at medical spas in Orem and throughout the country continues to be laser hair removal, because of the overwhelming benefits it offers. Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted hair from numerous locations on the body and offers permanent results. If you are interested in learning more about laser hair removal, take a look at some of the information featured below.

An Overview of the Treatment
While laser hair removal treatments vary based on the specific type of technology used, the general procedure works by penetrating the skin with a laser light in order to destroy the hair follicle within. Each follicle absorbs the laser’s energy, which essentially fries it in a safe and controlled manner. The procedure is relatively painless and will not damage any skin tissue. Best of all, it can be used on the arms, legs, bikini area, face, and other select areas of the body.

Eligibility for Hair Removal Using Elos
The particular type of laser technology utilized by professionals at our spa near Orem is the Elos plus, which can be used on both men and women of all ethnicities to remove unwanted hair. Clients who are fair skinned and have blonde or red hair are by no means ineligible from treatment, but should know that they will require more treatment sessions than darker haired clients. The best way to determine eligibility is to speak with a laser hair removal specialist.

Expected Results
Results will vary based on what type of hair a person has and how many treatments he or she requires. However, once the entire process is completed, patients should notice a permanent reduction in hair in the treated area. Over time, the hair will stop growing in the treated areas. These permanent results make laser hair removal a great alternative over waxing or electrolysis procedures.
