Laser Hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair through exposure to pulses of laser light that destroys the follicle and appeals to both women and men. This method was investigated experimentally for about 20 years before it became commercially available in the mid-1990.
Laser waxing has become popular because of its speed and efficiency and is performed by mapping a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to achieve the maximum result in the targeted tissue with the smallest effects on the surrounding tissue. Modern laser technology can target melanin by selectively heating the area where hair growth is increased, hitting only hair follicles without harming the rest of the skin.
Alexandrite Laser hair removal has been approved by the FDA since 1997 as “permanent hair reduction technology”. According to this definition, there is a steady reduction of hair growth after each session and in international practice is observed that even after the completion of the treatment cycle, maintenance sessions with less frequency are required and for smaller areas as hair growth has decreased significantly. However, as all skin types are not the same each patient must be checked for suitability. The experience and skill of the operator should, in any case, be a prerequisite.
