Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Common Areas for Laser Hair Removal

If you're considering laser hair removal treatments you'll be happy to know that there is a treatment available for every part of your body. Even, if you have some particularly thick or stubborn hairy areas, the laser removal process can help you.  Some of the most popular laser treatments people undergo are hair removal in their bikini or groin area, underarms, legs, back, and face.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal works with the use of a laser or a high energy beam of light.  The laser is used to target specific areas of the body with unwanted hair.  When the practitioner uses the laser, they burn the pigments (melanin) in the hair follicles which cause the hair to go into recessive state (slow down growing).  When a doctor performs a laser hair removal treatment, they need to make sure they avoid burning the skin and instead only burn the hair follicle.  People with darker skin and lighter hair color are much more susceptible to skin damage and need to avoid laser hair removal treatments.  Some of the newer laser technology have been released to help address this problem but the technology is still fairly basic and so for best results with treatment, you should only undergo it with light colored skin. 

The Costs Behind Laser Hair Removal Treatments

The cost of laser hair removal treatments will vary based on a lot of different factors.  People with troublesome, thick hair will end up spending a lot more for their treatments than someone with thin or docile hair.  Other factors include the experience of the doctor performing the treatments as well as the laser technology used (newer and better will cost more) and the area being targeted for hair removal.  Common, small areas of the body will cost much less than larger areas of the body like the back or legs.  Most people who have laser hair removal treatments will expect to pay about $200 to $500 for a treatment session with an average of about 3 sessions per area.

Inexperience Beware

If you want to use laser treatment you should be aware that the hair loss specialist that costs the least amount are not the ones you probably don't want to use. Inexperienced staff and doctors can potentially cause a great deal of harm and cause side-effects that can last for the rest of your life. Proper research and shopping around should be attempted before choosing your laser hair removal practitioner. Find reviews, if possible, and make sure that their clients like the results they get.
