How Does Laser Hair Removal Really Work?

BodyLase laser hair removal

A nightmare in every woman’s life is getting a last-minute invitation to an event and having to select an outfit based on the last time she shaved her legs. Are you ready to get rid of this nightmare forever? Laser hair removal may be the solution you’ve been looking for!

Regular waxing and trimming of body hair can add up very quickly. However, innovations have made it easier than ever for men and women to get rid of unwanted body and facial hair. Laser hair removal is the most common treatment these days for those who are sick and tired of shaving frequently or getting waxed each month.

Laser hair removal is an excellent option for those who are interested in reducing unwanted hair on their face and/or body can last a lifetime as it is permanent. At BodyLase, we have lasers that can treat any skin color and skin type and almost ANY area on the body.

How is the Hair Removed?

Laser hair removal uses pulses of light to target individual hair follicles. When the hair follicle absorbs the projected light, it is destroyed, which provides a significant reduction in unwanted hair. Each area that you choose to treat will require 6-8 sessions spread out evenly over the next couple of months.

Why Do I Need More Than One Laser Hair Treatment?

Treatments are spaced out so that the root of the hair follicle is visible for the light to be effective in destroying the follicle. Multiple treatments are required because hair follicles can only be affected by the laser when they are in the hair growth cycle. Only around one-third of hairs on the body are in this part of the cycle at any one time and is the reason why laser hair removal is a process and not a one and done treatment.

Will My Hair Grow Back?

There are a variety of factors that can cause new hair growth over the years (including any hormone changes like pregnancy), which is why BodyLase offers a lifetime guarantee on your laser hair removal needs! If you’ve complemented our recommended treatment plan and your hair grows back, we’ll guarantee your treatments at 50% off that area for LIFE.

Is it Really Permanent?

A significant reduction in unwanted hair will be seen by any areas that are treated at BodyLase. The FDA defines permanent hair removal as an “85% reduction in unwanted hair”. It is always our goal to make sure that we meet your expectations! We have some patients that find they need a maintenance session annually to keep their areas hair-free, and others come back as necessary for touch-ups.
