Has the unwanted hair on your face and body got you asking – what are my treatment options for getting rid of excess hair? Unwanted hair can be difficult and painful to get rid of using traditional methods such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing. Fortunately, there are more effective options now available such as laser hair removal.
How lasers remove excess hair
Laser hair removal is considered the most effective and long lasting method for treating excess hair. It is a safe, convenient procedure that gets rid of unwanted hair fast.
The laser energy targets the melanin (pigment) at the base of the hair follicle. The hair absorbs the light which is converted into heat energy and kills the hair follicle. After the recommended number of sessions, patients will notice a significant reduction in hair growth.
There are a variety of technologies available for laser hair removal including the following:
- Motus AX: This is an advanced alexandrite laser system that delivers fast, uniform, painless, hair removal results. The Motus AX handpiece has a cooled sapphire tip that minimizes energy loss to this skin, and facilitates the efficient and effective transmission of energy. The Motus AX is suitable for men and women of all skin tones, so there are no risks to darker skin types.
- Sciton Broadband Light (BBL): BBL uses controlled flashes of broad band light to remove excess hair. It is a safe, comfortable hair removal treatment that is more effective for people with light skin tones and dark hair.
