Laser hair removal is an effective method for permanently reducing unwanted hair. Shaving in the bath or shower daily can be time-laser hair removalconsuming, and unwanted hair often begins growing back within a day. Shaving can also irritate the skin. Waxing is another option, with longer lasting results than shaving, but it can be painful and cause skin irritation, as well. Laser hair removal is a quick and effective method for revealing smoother skin by permanently removing unwanted hair. At For a New You, Dr. Barbara Preussner and her staff provide laser hair removal in Holliston, MA.

Laser Hair Removal

In Holliston, laser hair removal can be used for removing unwanted hair all over the body, including the face, underarms, bikini line, arms, and legs. Laser hair removal is performed using a gentle light beam that is carefully waved across the skin in the desired area. Melanin in the hair follicles of the skin absorbs light energy from the laser. The light energy damages the hair follicle so that it cannot generate new hair growth.

Since hair grows in cycles, several laser hair removal treatments might be necessary to completely remove all unwanted hair in a particular area. Most patients achieve the desired results between three to six treatment sessions. The number of treatment sessions needed often depends on your hair texture, hair color, and skin type. Hair removal is quicker on some hair textures and skin types, and can take longer with others. Laser hair removal works on all skin types and is an effective method for removing unwanted hair safely without damaging the surrounding skin.

Laser hair removal is a safe method for permanently removing unwanted hair and achieving smoother skin. Save time and avoid the hassle and irritation of other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing.
