Laser hair removal is a medical procedure which uses a a concentrated beam of light to destroy unwanted hair follicles. Laser is absorbed by pigment, which in hair removal treatment, is the melanin inside hair follicles. The light energy or laser is converted to heat, which damages and finally destroys the hair follicle. This damage prevents or delays future hair growth.
Although laser hair removal in West Vancouver effectively delays hair growth for long period of time, it usually does not result in permanent hair removal. Depending on the area, type of hair, density, and skin type, multiple treatments are required. Also, maintenance treatments once every six months are recommended.
