Adolescence arrives with many changes in a teenager’s body. Hair growth is one of the most noticeable of these changes and can often be annoying for some teenagers. Teens have a tendency to be extra sensitive about their hair growth, especially when it appears in a less desirable area of the body such as the face or arms. Girls are usually more sensitive about this than boys.
A teenager with unwanted hair might not want to shave just yet, or use wax and other methods because of this permanent laser hair reduction treatment might be an option to consider.
Laser hair reduction treatment is a very effective method of killing parts of the hair follicle at a time. Basically, it is thermal destruction of hair follicle, thus permanently reducing hair growth only after a series of treatments.
The procedure is relatively painless provided the laser has a good air-cooling system. The key to keep discomfort at minimal level is to ensure that Laser has continuous contact air-cooling which cools the skin before, during and after the procedure. Most people experience a slight prickly sensation and some redness in the treated area that subsides within a few hours after the treatment.
Laser hair reduction is most effective when hair is in the growth stage. Because hair grows in cycles, people undergoing laser hair reduction typically require a series of 6-8 sessions spaced approximately one month apart for maximum results.
Removal of unwanted hair by laser has been one of the best gifts of modern medical technology to women across the world. Although there are several methods of removing unwanted hair like shaving, plucking, waxing and threading, all of them are temporary.
Laser hair reduction is a gentle and effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body.
