How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

There are many reasons you may want to undertake hair removal treatments. This is something you can attempt at home, but traditional methods of hair removal are time-consuming, risky, and never lead to long-lasting results. Ideally, you want a method that removes as much hair as possible, provides minimal discomfort and creates results that last a very long time. 

At Manhattan Aesthetics, we believe we have the perfect answer to your hair removal problem with our laser hair removal treatment

Laser Hair Removal Overview

Laser hair removal is considered one of the most innovative and revolutionary hair removal treatments out there right now. It is seen as a better alternative to waxing, shaving, or hair removal creams/gels. Treatments are generally very quick, simple to administer and result in minimal pain or discomfort. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we use the most advanced cosmetic lasers to help you achieve your ideal results after just a few laser hair removal treatments. 

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Naturally, lasers are the main focus of this treatment. It starts by selecting the right laser and calibrating it for your skin color, hair color, and hair thickness. A special handpiece is also selected depending on which area is being treated. When everything is set up, the handpiece is passed over the area, where the laser emits light. This light is then absorbed by the hair follicles in the area, which converts the light to heat. Doing this will mean the follicles become hotter and hotter, to the point where they burn up and destroy themselves. 

This leaves you with no follicle anymore, and it only works when the follicles are in the active stage of the growth cycle. Only a small percentage are in this state within a given area of your body, so multiple treatments are needed to ensure as many follicles are destroyed as possible, yielding very impressive results.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is highly beneficial as you are directly targeting hair follicles and removing them completely. In turn, this means the results are as close to permanent as you can achieve from any hair removal treatments. It can take an extremely long time before follicles regrow in a treated area, meaning you could see results that last for years. 

Another key benefit is that the treatment is simple and less painful than other options. Some candidates experience mild discomfort and redness following the treatment, but this is nothing compared to the pain of waxing or the redness seen via hair removal creams. You also no longer have to worry about razor burns or other skin irritations caused by shaving. 

Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

We use a combination of different lasers that make it easy for us to treat candidates of different skin colors, hair colors, and hair textures. As such, anyone is a candidate for this treatment if you have any unwanted hair on your body. It works all over the body, including some of the more sensitive and hard to reach areas.
