Men and women alike often wish to find a long lasting solution. In these circumstances, you may want to consider undergoing laser hair removal. A Long Island laser treatment specialist can assist you an achieving smooth, hair-free skin with this procedure.

Permanent Hair Removal

Laser hair removal utilizes complex technology to remove hair. A laser is simply a concentrated source of light. It has many uses in the field of medicine. In laser hair removal though, the laser targets the pigment in the hair and vaporizes it, causing the follicles to be destroyed. There is not one type of laser used for hair removal. For instance darker-skinned individuals did not benefit from some of the first lasers on the market. The pigment in the skin absorbed the lasers light more so than the hair, resulting in damage to the skin. Now there are lasers on the market that can either remove or reduce the hair growth in people with deeper skin tones. Results from laser hair removal vary individually. Unfortunately, laser hair removal does not work well on individuals with lightly-colored hair, since the pigment is what the laser uses to break down the follicle. It will take a series of treatments for you to see results.

In addition to laser hair removal, your Long Island dermatologist may offer other skin rejuvenating treatments. Some of these may include laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. The combination of these procedures may help you regain more youthful appearance.

Be sure to view before and after laser hair removal photos in order to see examples of previous patient results. It is important to note that not all patients will attain the same results as everyone has a unique anatomy and hair growth cycle. Anticipated results should be thoroughly discussed with your physician.
