How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Kiss Laser Hair Clinic uses the Polaris long pulsed Nd:YAG laser to help eliminate hair regrowth, and it can be used to treat a large number of different areas on the face and body. This is a very safe form of hair removal that uses light energy to destroy the hair follicle without damaging the skin. The laser is set to a particular wavelength to reach right to the base of each hair, right to the follicle. At this point the energy is converted into heat, destroying the follicle. Repeated treatments will slow and may eventually eliminate hair growth. More than one session is necessary as hair follicles will have different growth cycles, and an individual follicle may be in an active phase where the hair is growing during laser removal treatment, or it may be dormant.
Quick and comfortable
The process is virtually painless for most people as it only tends to produce a slight tingling sensation, although some people who have a lower pain threshold may experience mild discomfort. After each treatment you may notice the skin is slightly pink, but this effect should subside within a few hours. Before you can be treated at Kiss Laser Hair, you will need to have a free consultation that includes a laser patch test to ensure this therapy is right for you. We will also need to know about your medical history, as patient safety is very important to us.
Eliminate embarrassing face or body hair
Women often feel self-conscious over excess and unwanted facial hair, particularly on the upper lip, and facial hair growth can sometimes be exacerbated by medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome. Laser hair removal will also work well for the bikini line, the arms and underarms and the legs. Men can also benefit from laser hair removal, and this treatment can work well for the chest, shoulders, back, neck and face.
The technology can be used to effectively treat all skin tones but tends to work best for darker hair that contains a greater amount of pigment or melanin. This makes it easier for the laser to target the hair without affecting the skin.
