What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal involves beaming highly concentrated light through lasers into hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorb the light, thus destroying the hair from its root. Today, this procedure is one of the most common aesthetic treatments in the United States. If you would like to undergo laser hair removal in Roslyn Heights, make sure to choose the most reputable doctor in order to achieve the results you want and avoid any complications.

Why should you get laser hair removal?

There are various reasons people get laser hair removal in Long Island. Aside from offering permanent hair removal after just three to seven sessions, depending on your skin tone and hair type, the procedure is extremely precise. This is because the lasers target dark and coarse hair while leaving surrounding areas undamaged.

Furthermore, laser hair removal in Roslyn Heights is very fast. The laser pulses in less than a second, removing multiple hairs in the process. Laser hair removal can treat areas as large as a quarter in just one second. As a result, this procedure can treat small areas such as the upper lip in less than a minute. With larger areas like the legs or back, the procedure can take up to an hour per session.

Where can you get laser hair removal?

You can get laser hair removal at Advanced Dermatology in Long Island on virtually every part of your body. This includes your arms, legs, face, underarms, and back. You can also receive laser hair removal on the bikini area and the areola. It is worth mentioning that laser hair removal does not work for all hair types. Light-based hair removal systems cannot treat light blonde, gray, or white hair as there is not enough pigment for the light to absorb.

People who have dark, coarse hair with white skin often receive the best results. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, it would be beneficial for you to wait until your tan fades to receive this type of treatment. Additionally, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure if you take skin medication such as Accutane or Retin-A.
