Laser hair removal is a popular technique in SOMATOLOGY/ HEALTH AND SKINCARE/AESTHETICS for getting rid of undesirable body hair. Since it is non-invasive, there are no skin incisions necessary. Any portion of the body may be treated, although the following are the most often treated areas:
The method used for laser hair removal is known as selective photothermolysis. Cells with a lot of pigment are destroyed by the heat from a laser (color). Dark hair absorbs the greatest heat since it has a lot of pigment. Hair prevents hair from growing by transferring heat to the hair follicles and destroying them.
For the process to be effective, a hair follicle must be in the Anagen, or growth, stage. Hair treated in Anagen gives the best results. Most patients require numerous laser treatments because the phases of the follicles change over time.
In SOMATOLOGY/ HEALTH AND SKINCARE/AESTHETICS, this treatment is used to remove excessive body hair and benefits a lot of clients. Typically, it is cosmetic surgery. Your looks or sense of self might improve. A lot of folks also favor not shaving frequently.
SOMATOLOGY/ HEALTH AND SKINCARE/AESTHETICS therapists utilize Laser hair removal occasionally to address excessive hair growth brought on by hair conditions such as Hirsutism which is when women develop coarse, black hair in typically hairy places on their bodies, and Hypertrichosis which is the condition of which either men or women have excessive body hair growth.
These conditions could result from:
- A few drugs, such as birth control pills and anabolic steroids.
- Hormone imbalances, particularly high levels of androgen or testosterone.
- Genetically transmitted illnesses and ailments that run in families.
- Ovarian polycystic syndrome.
- Hormone-producing tumors.
People with thick, black hair and fair skin benefit from laser hair removal the most. The hair can absorb heat more readily because of the contrast between the color of the skin and the hair. For those with dark skin or blonde, gray, white, or red hair, it might not work as effectively.
Laser hair removal produces longer-lasting results than shaving, waxing, tweezing, or plucking. Compared to electrolysis, some people favor laser hair removal. Hair follicles are destroyed by electrolysis using a thin wire and an electric current.
The following are advantages of laser hair removal over electrolysis and this is why therapists in SOMATOLOGY/ HEALTH AND SKINCARE/AESTHETICS choose laser over electrolysis:
- Fewer therapies.
- Less discomfort during treatment.
- Less chance of ingrown hairs.
