Most traditional methods for the removal of unwanted hair offer results that are only temporary at best. If you’re interested in lasting, permanent hair removal, we’re excited to be offering laser hair removal to patients in the Mount Airy and Frederick MD areas, and beyond.
How the Procedure Works
This highly advanced procedure utilizes laser light energy that is close to infrared to effectively remove unwanted hair permanently, with a series of treatments. Laser energy interacts with the hair follicles in question for a fraction of a second, which is just long enough to ensure that the follicles are damaged by the laser energy. This energy essentially works to heat up the hair follicle until the point that it is damaged and effectively “deactivated” in the process.
Thanks to the highly specific nature of this treatment, your nearby healthy tissues will be left completely safe and untouched. The procedure is also quite comfortable, and your skin will be cooled during the treatment.
This treatment can address unwanted hair on just about any skin type, so you’ll be a great candidate no matter what type of skin you have. Since not every hair is at the same level of growth when you receive your treatment, you will need follow-up appointments to enjoy full and permanent hair removal results.
