Laser hair removal is a great way to solve the problem of unwanted body hair. The ease and effectiveness of this procedure makes shaving, waxing, and electrolysis basically obsolete. Hair removal can address areas like the bikini line, back, chin, underarms, legs and elsewhere.
Yag Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Yag Laser hair removal uses a low-energy beam to affect actively growing hair follicles in specified areas. The energy disables the hair follicle and stops its growth. Depending on which (and how many) areas require treatment, the process can take just a few minutes or significantly longer.
Patients of all skin types can benefit from this procedure, but there are special considerations related to persons with darker skin. It is believed that Yag lasers are the safest choice for such skin types.
Recovery and Results
The Yag laser can provides permanent results if treatment is repeated multiple times. Each treatment affects roughly 30 percent of the hair follicles. Some patients experience some slight redness afterwards, which subsides after a few hours.
