For almost 15 years now, medical lasers have been used for things as tattoo removal, acne scars clearing and removing dark spots existing on the skin. Now they are increasingly being approved by the FDA and are used for wrinkle removal, tooth whitening, and hair removal.
? Many laser hair removal providers claim that their processes are permanent and painless. The FDA says there must be enough evidence to support those claims and it is actually giving some manufacturers authorization to state permanent hair deduction but not removal. Be careful if you select a provider that says that their process is painless and permanent. If you are able to obtain the manufacturer and model number of the laser, you can directly call or write the FDA to see if they have approval for medical use.
Still, laser hair removal can be a great option for anyone wanting to remove unwanted hair from any place on their bodies. It works for both men and women, and it is more effective if the hair is darker than the skin.
So how does this actually work? As laser light passes through the skin while at the moment it is converted to heat and is absorbed by the pigment melanin in the hair follicle, effectively disabling the follicle itself and preventing further growth. Some clinical trials have been successful in preventing the hair to grow again for up to 2 years, making laser hair removal the longest-lasting from all the hair removal methods.
There is a number of over all the other forms of hair removal such as waxing, sugaring, , twee-zing, depilatory creams etc. First of all the procedure is non-invasive, and does not require any creams or needles. Another benefit is that the light beams can move fast and effectively treat large areas during a small amount of time. And of course the results are long-term.
Most insurance policies will not cover laser hair removal treatments but it pays to shop for price as well as methodology. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported than the average single treatment cost is around $350. Many areas require multiple treatments to have the maximum benefit so the actual cost can add up. That should be weighed against the cost of all the other methods of hair removal which have to be done more frequently.
If you suffer from unwanted hair that is dark and your skin is lighter than your hair you should look into this long -lasting hair treatment method.
