Laser Hair Removal Northborough
Laser hair removal (more precisely, laser hair reduction) is a finely-tuned sophisticated procedure done with the use of laser. This specific laser is designed to remove the growth center at the base of the hair follicle. The laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. Upon absorption, the laser energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle.
The majority of the body is appropriate for the use of this laser. It is essentially a painless procedure, it can be performed in the office and does not require anesthesia. The laser is FDA approved and in general 3 laser treatments 4 weeks apart are required for permanent reduction of the hair in the region.
