There are many people who struggle to effectively remove hair from unwanted places. The armpits, back and the face are just some examples of where it’s often embarrassing or uncomfortable to have excessive amounts of hair. Laser hair removal is an effective means of removing hair, and its results are long-lasting. Developed in the late 1990s, laser hair removal has become a common practice and is constantly making advances. Laser hair removal targets heat and energy at hair follicles, which destroys them at the root level. Different light intensity and color is effective for different skin tones. The lasers are carefully measured to damage hair and not skin. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine if you are interested in laser hair removal.
