Hair Removal Surgery: Laser Treatments Become Popular

Apr 30, 2008
When physical appearance interferes with one's ability to feel comfortable, confident, and happy, then cosmetic skin care surgeries become a feasible option. There are many surgical procedures that are available to help with such situations and with modern laser technology, finding the right solution to various types of cosmetic needs is getting simpler.

Many seek out hair removal surgery, which is often performed with lasers. This form of cosmetic treatment can range in cost depending on the area of the body and the number of treatments. Laser hair removal surgery generally works best on lighter skin tones with darker hair. There are some lasers which work well for darker skin tones, but lighter hair is not effectively removed with laser technology at this time. For many, the removal of hair has been a process that must be repeated everyday, to every other day, to every week or more. The way hair grows varies from person to person. Furthermore, where hair grows also varies from person to person. To effectively remove hair in a more permanent or long lasting way, laser may be the best option for your hair and skin type.

There are obviously other forms of hair removal, but they are not necessarily related to cosmetic lasers or surgical procedures which require much assistance. Shaving and waxing have been around for some time now and are still one of the most popular forms of hair removal simply because of the convenience related to removing hair quickly. Furthermore, they are the cheapest forms of hair removal around. The hair will continue to grow back however. With laser hair removal surgery, the hair's return is drastically diminished over time and though new hairs may occasionally grow back, lasers offer the most permanent option available.

Another benefit to laser hair removal surgery is the benefit of being able to go to one treatment and not worry about hair growing back for a month or more. This may be similar to waxing, but with waxing most of the hair will grow back similar to the way it was prior to the waxing treatment. With laser hair removal surgery, each treatment makes the hair grow back less and less, and lighter than before. Furthermore, once a number of treatments have been performed, having to go back for further treatments becomes less and less necessary as the hair's ability to grow back is diminished. Since minor hair may grow back even after a number of treatments, or after some time has gone by after treatment, it is recommended that patients have a realistic outlook related to the procedure. Every hair cannot be zapped during each treatment and so some hairs will have missed being treated and may grow back while others will not. To thoroughly rid the hair in a certain area, each single hair follicle would have to be treated to the point of its inability to grow back. Speak with a cosmetic skin care professional in your area to see if laser hair removal surgery is right for you. There are many types of lasers available to assist with various types of skin and hair types.
