Laser Hair Removal in Reston
Laser hair removal is a painless medical procedure that uses light from a laser to remove unwanted hair by destroying hair follicles (where hair growth starts). As the laser light passes through the skin and strikes the hair follicles, the intense heat instantly destroys them. More darkly pigmented hair responds best to the laser, while hair that is lighter can be less responsive. For patients with lighter hair, topical medications may be used to increase the sensitivity of the hair to the laser light.
For many patients, laser hair removal results in slowed hair re-growth. It does not guarantee permanent hair removal but does provide hair-free periods that can range from months to years. Generally speaking, up to three or more laser treatments are needed to provide more permanent results.
