Laser hair removal works by using concentrated beams of light to prevent normal hair regrowth. Your body is covered in hair follicles, each of which contains a hair root that develops the cells that stack on top of each other to form strands of hair.
Laser treatment creates heat that travels into the follicles and hair roots. That heat damages the hair root, preventing regrowth. This process works best when your hair is in the active growth phase, which is why it takes multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
Laser hair removal is an effective way to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair on your face or body. Arms, legs, bikini area, underarms, back, and shoulders are all common treatment areas.
Many people report feeling a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band against their skin during laser hair removal. If you have especially sensitive skin, a special numbing cream can make your sessions more comfortable.
Lasers are also a great way to create a refreshed and renewed facial appearance. The treatment platforms used at PLSTK offer outstanding safety features and keep the surface of your skin at safe temperatures while creating heat in the deeper layers.
This heat prompts your body to generate new collagen and elastin, plumping skin from within. Some lasers also remove the outermost layers of skin to effectively remove lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Scar tissue can also be softened through laser treatments.
