Laser treatment for the removal of unwanted hair

Posted on 14 Apr, 2010

Everyone has a different skin type and different types of hair growth. Some people are blessed with exceptionally smooth skin with very little hair growth, but others have heavy hair growth in undesirable places such as the face, arms, legs, and chest and so on. Women, in particular, can be very conscious of this hair growth and therefore are embarrassed to wear the clothes they want to wear.

Those who are troubled with such a condition can opt for laser hair removal treatment. This kind of treatment can prove extremely effective for those who wish to get rid of unwanted hair.

Laser treatments are performed under medical supervision with the help of highly qualified doctors. They use specialised lasers to remove the excess hair.


Lasers emit high-intensity light onto the skin. These lights are targeted on the melanin of the hair follicles. Stopping these follicles from working is the key to stopping hair from growing.

The procedure is painless and patients are only likely to feel some slight discomfort after it takes place. This will fade quickly. Patients may require multiple sessions in order to achieve the desired level of hair removal.
