What is Laser Hair Removal ?
Laser hair removal is one of the skin and beauty services that should be done exclusively in specialized skin and hair clinics. There are many ways to get rid of excess body hair. These methods include shaving, waxing, using chemicals and tying, and so on.
Laser hair removal is a better method compared to other hair removal methods because it removes and reduces excess hair much later, it is also very fast and effective, while a method such as electrolysis treats a specific area. It covers the hair and is not used for large parts of the body. The way the laser works is that the laser light, with a certain wavelength, is shone on the surface of the skin and hair on it in a short time. This light is precisely adjusted to achieve the optimal effect on a part of the skin tissue, and with minimal effect on the surrounding tissue.
In the process of laser hair removal, light is emitted from the laser light generator and then absorbed by the hair pigments. This light is converted into heat as it is absorbed and passed through the hair, and then the heat affects the hair follicles (small holes in the skin from which hair grows). At the roots of the hair immediately evaporates and so-called, burns and thus no longer grows. To destroy the hair follicle, it is necessary to burn the hair follicle onion, in which the blood feeds the hair with oxygen, as well as the main cells that are responsible for hair regeneration. For this purpose, the heat generated by the laser in the hair shaft and roots reaches a temperature of about 70 degrees.
