Many people, both men and women, struggle with excess hair on their bodies. Sometimes this excess hair can lead to a self-consciousness that affects your confidence levels and your relationships with others. If you are constantly bothered by unsightly hair and wish to be rid of it, you may want to consider laser hair reduction.

Laser hair reduction is a great investment in the overall look of your body. However, some people may be intimidated by the process, as they do not understand what is involved.

Laser Hair Removal Process

Here is a quick look at hair removal so that you can better understand the process as you consider it:

First, laser hair removal can be performed on almost all colors of skin, and there are multiple lasers to choose from, so your medical professional can be sure to find the right one for your skin and hair type. Once the laser light goes through the surface of your skin and into the hair follicle, the melanin in the follicle absorbs the light and it becomes heat energy, which destroys the hair tissue. Laser hair reduction is extremely safe, as it is purposefully designed to not damage the other tissues surrounding the follicle.

However, it is also important to understand that this is not a one-time process. It is a reduction of your hair, so 5-10 treatments may be needed on certain areas of your body. But with the exception of the area around your eyes, laser hair reduction can be performed on any area of your body where you feel there is too much unsightly hair. Popular areas include the bikini line, the legs and arms, the upper lip, and the back, which is a popular choice for men.

This type of hair removal offers many benefits, not only for your appearance, but also for your daily life. You no longer will need to choose clothing that hides these areas, and the time you spend shaving your body hair is reduced significantly. In addition, by eliminating this stress, your self-confidence can grow, increasing your ability to strengthen your relationships with others.
