Laser Hair Removal for Smooth Skin October 1, 2012 Cole Waxing hurts; so does plucking. Shaving takes time. All three come with the daily inconvenience of stubble, missed spots, ingrown hairs and irritation – not to mention cuts, red bumps or razor burn. Laser hair removal presents an alternative, keeping your skin smooth without the constant work of having to maintain it. It does so by reducing the volume of hair re-growth on your body. It can be performed anywhere you like, including: Bikini line Legs Underarms Upper lip Back Chin Upper lip Brows Toes Armpits How does laser hair removal work? During laser hair removal treatment, light passes through the skin’s surface, where it’s absorbed by a pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle and converted into heat. This heat damages the follicle, inhibiting future growth, without harming any surrounding tissue. Hair removal can be achieved after only five to ten treatments, depending on where it’s performed on your body, and what your hair color is. At Cole Aesthetic Center, we have two different laser/light hair removal systems to choose from, so we can tailor your treatment for best results, to suit your skin and hair type.
