Laser Hair Removal: Is it Safe and Effective?

Laser hair removal is something that is new to many. Understandably, many people are a little skeptical of what it is, how much it will hurt, and how effective the procedure really is in the long-term. If you have doubts or confusion, here is some clarification: 

Laser hair removal may seem unreliable at best and ambiguously torturous at worst, but the science behind the procedure is actually quite simple. “The Tria Hair Removal Laser uses a diode laser that detects the pigment within the hair follicle and disables it.” Crenshaw explains. “Hair follicles treated while using the Tria Hair Removal Laser are attacked and some follicles are disabled with each treatment. Because hair grows in various cycles, it takes up to three months to see full results to ensure that follicles can be disabled.”

Laser hair removal is by no means a one-and-done-type treatment to dispel errant hairs from your skin, but some consumers may be fortunate enough to see a decrease in hair proliferation within your first two treatments. According to Crenshaw, the majority of Tria consumers require six or more sessions to view a marked change. “Permanent results can be seen when the device is used once every other week for up to 3 months,” she clarifies. “This equals roughly six at-home treatments.” In addition, laser treatments do not yield complete hairlessness in any region of the body. The majority of hair follicles can be removed after a full set of treatments, but laser hair removal patients are cautioned that removal is never absolute.

As a veteran of several laser sessions, I can verify that the “rubber band snapping” sensation of each pulse is an undeniable aspect of the treatment. Each treatment zone requires a distinct number of pulses per session to address hair growth depending upon its surface area. Therefore, large expanses of skin such as the legs or arms necessitate a significant time commitment — and if you’re susceptible to pain, a fair amount of teeth-gritting — to hit each hair follicle. However, Crenshaw confirms that patients rarely experience troubling side-effects post-treatment. “The commonly reported side effects are temporary redness and minor swelling at the treated site. With normal use, these should resolve by themselves after treatment,” she explains.

If you possess the correct skin type and hair color as well as a bit of disposable income, you may find your hair removal soul mate in laser therapy.
