Laser Hair Removal: A Smart Guide

Laser hair removal is a popular method for removing unwanted hair.  Laser hair removal has gained in popularity over the years.  If you’ve been wondering what laser hair removal is all about, then sit back and enjoy this smart guide to what laser hair removal is and how it might be beneficial for your personal needs.  If you decide that you’d like to proceed with laser hair removal, then be sure to contact Absolute Smile.  We now provide laser hair removal at our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania location.  

1.Why laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is most commonly used to remove unwanted hair on the face, legs, armpits, bikini line, legs and forearm.  It is both safe and effective.  Many people choose laser hair removal because it’s more effective than other hair removal methods, such as electrolysis, plucking, shaving, or waxing.  What’s more, the price is usually right for most people.

2.Who is laser hair removal best for?
Generally speaking, laser hair removal works best on people who have dark hair and lighter skin.  There are still lasers that can work well on dark skin, however.  Basically, most people who have unwanted hair and who want a quick, effective removal method are good candidates for laser hair removal.

3.How does laser hair removal work?
With laser hair removal, a laser emits a beam of light with a wavelength that targets the melanin in the growth follicle.  The laser beam essentially passes through the skin and is then absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. 

4.How many treatments are needed?
On the average, most people require about five treatments to reach the most desired and effective results.  As new hairs emerge, added treatments can be scheduled.  Certain body areas will respond better to laser hair removal than other areas.  Most people notice a more rapid effect on their face than they do on their bikini line.

5.How much does laser hair removal cost?
A single laser hair removal treatment of the chin and lip area usually runs around $200-$400.  Oftentimes, a series of 5 costs around $1,000-2$,000 depending on how much hair needs to be removed.
