Laser hair removal: For decades now, medical lasers have been used for such things as tattoo removal, clearing up acne scars and other blemishes, and removing dark spots on the skin. Now they are increasingly being approved by the FDA and used for such things as wrinkle removal, tooth whitening, and hair removal. Is it really lasting? Quite a number of laser hair removal providers tout their processes as painless or permanent. The FDA says there must be enough evidence to support those claims and it is actually giving some manufacturers authorization to state permanent hair reduction but not removal.
Be careful if you select a provider who says their process is permanent and painless. If you have the manufacturer and model number of the laser, you can directly call or write the FDA to see if they have approval for medical use. Still, laser hair removal can be a great option for anyone wanting to remove unwanted hair from anywhere on their bodies. It works for both men and women, and is more effective if the hair is noticeably darker than the skin. How does it work? As laser light passes through the skin, it is converted to heat and is absorbed by the pigment melanin in the hair follicle, effectively disabling the follicle itself and thus preventing further growth.
Some clinical trials have been successful in preventing hair re-growth for up to two years, making laser hair removal one of the longest-lasting hair removal methods. There are a number of advantages of laser hair removal over other forms of hair removal such as waxing, sugaring, depilatory creams, tweezing, etc. For one, the procedure is non-invasive, and does not require creams or needles. Another benefit is that the light beams can move quickly, and effectively treat larger areas in a short amount of time. And don't forget the long-term results. Although most insurance policies will not cover laser hair removal procedures, it pays to shop for price as well as methodology.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported an average single treatment cost around $388. Many areas require multiple treatments to gain the maximum benefit, so the cost can add up. That should be weighed against the cost of alternative methods of hair removal which would have to be done more frequently. If you suffer from unwanted hair, that hair is dark, and your skin is at least a few shades lighter than your hair, you should look into this long-lasting hair removal method.
Is laser hair removal permanent and safe? Hair removal from a ruined hair follicle is permanent. However, anyone who undergoes hair removal can expect that some hair in the targeted area will grow back. Over a period of time, it is possible to treat the area again to reduce the number of hairs that regrow. In some cases, it may even be achievable to eliminate all hair. Hair re-growth depends on several factors, including the type of hair that regrows and the skill of the person removing the hair. Most people find that when hair regrows, it is lighter and less noticeable than it was before. This is because the laser may damage the hair follicle even when it fails to destroy it. If a hair follicle is damaged but not destroyed, the hair will eventually regrow. It can be difficult to destroy every single hair follicle, so most people will see some hair regrowth. When hair regrows, it is possible to treat it again, so people who want to remove all the hair may need several treatments. In some cases, hair may be too light, too short, or resistant to treatment. In these cases, a person might choose to use other hair removal methods, such as plucking stray hairs.
