The presence of excess bodily hair can be the cause of discomfort and feelings of ill ease, leading people to alter their social activities because of it. Laser hair removal systems allows people to permanently remove unwanted hair by selectively targeting hair follicles and heating them with infrared energy.
The laser hair removal system is able to selectively target microstructures like hair follicles but treat many hairs at once, allowing treatment of large bodily areas to be practical. In order to be effective, treatments from three to five times at intervals of three to eight weeks will be necessary. Because laser hair removal can only successfully work when the hair is in the active growth phase, called anagen, multiple treatments are necessary for desired results.
