Most women are unhappy with unwanted hair in their body. Laser hair removal treatment is one of the ways in which body hair can be removed easily. Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures done all over the world. In this treatment hair in the body is removed by beaming highly concentrated laser beams into the hair follicles. When the pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, the hair gets removed. The right candidate for this treatment would be those who have coarse hair in their faces, arms, under arms and legs. Lasers selectively target dark coarse hair leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. It takes only a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Small areas like the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute and large area like the back or leg may take up to an hour. Most people have permanent hair loss in three to seven sessions. If you are planning to undergo laser hair removal you have to prepare by limiting the plucking and waxing six weeks before the laser treatment. You should also avoid being in the sun for six weeks before and after the treatment. It is important to undertake this treatment only under the supervision of an experienced professional. Checking the qualifications of the doctor or technician is important before undergoing the procedure. Laser hair removal treatment is quite expensive.
