Laser Hair removal is becoming the most popular and effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. In 2010 there were approximately six million laser hair removal procedures performed in the U.S. alone. When performed correctly it is the longest lasting and most pain free way to remove hair.
How does it work? A laser is focused at the root of the hair (it is important to shave the area before treatment to enable the laser to reach the root, DO NOT WAX prior to the procedure as this removes the root) and destroys the root. Typically, human hair grows in six cycles which is why the treatment is normally performed at least six times as to target the root in each cycle.
There are many important things to consider when deciding on hair removal. The most important thing though is to find a reputable operation to perform the procedure because laser hair removal can be dangerous if done incorrectly. LaserAway, Southern California’s largest medical spa company has recently acquired Smooth SF laser hair removal San Francisco on Union Street.
