How Does Laser Hair Removal in Little Rock Work?
Laser hair removal in Little Rock is a non-invasive treatment utilizing highly focused light that penetrates your hair follicles. The laser light that is transmitted by the device is absorbed by hair pigments that generate heat, which damages the hair follicle to prevent unwanted hair from growing there in the future. This is why you should not pluck your hair before your laser hair removal procedure because it will inhibit the performance of the laser, as its target cannot be found.
The Initial Consultation
Your consultation for your laser hair removal treatment is a good time to discuss with us your goals, current medications or supplements that you are taking, current medical condition, drug allergies, or any history of previous surgeries. At this time, we may also examine your overall health status and advise of any risk factors. We may discuss your options with you, take photographs, or recommend an individualized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.
Laser hair removal in Little Rock is a fairly simple, fast, and straightforward procedure. We direct a laser toward the hair follicles that are producing unwanted hair. The laser emits highly concentrated light energy that is absorbed by the pigment in your unwanted hair follicles.
Since the laser only targets hair in its active growth phase, you will need to return for additional laser treatments to ensure that we find each hair in its active growth phase at the time of treatment. Hair grows in phases, and hair in a resting phase will fall out, leaving no target for the laser.
You will require several laser hair removal procedures to permanently reduce unwanted hair. Patients normally undergo four or more laser treatments in order to permanently remove their unwanted hair. You may also require periodic maintenance treatments in the future.
