The Effectiveness Of Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted hair on the body and the face is a common cosmetic issue for both men and women. In recent years laser hair removal in Fairfax County, VA and in Chevy Chase, MD has become one of the most commonly requested services at Tamjidi Skin Institute.

New advancements in the types of equipment used in laser hair removal have made the process effective for finer and lighter hair. In the past only coarse, dark brown to black hair could be removed by lasers, but today’s technology provides a much more comprehensive hair removal system.

How it Works

The process of laser hair removal is very comfortable for the client, making it a much easier procedure than either waxing or shaving. It uses laser technology to pulse or scan the surface of the skin with a very concentrated laser beam.

The dark pigments in the shaft of the hair absorb the light from the laser. This in turn damage the follicle and the hair and inhibits regrowth. Since hairs on the body and the face grow in different cycles, several sessions may be required to fully remove all hair from the area.
