Laser Hair Removal Explained

Diode laser hair removal is the best option for laser hair removal, according to Dr. Lee Laris. He is especially fond of the LightSheer™. The machine heats the hair bulb and hair follicle, which damages the hair follicles so that they don't grow well. The hair will grow back thinner and weaker.

Laser hair removal takes more than one session for this reason. Multiple visits are needed to target new hair bulbs and hair follicles that are prime for hair removal treatment. Gradually the hair bulbs and hair follicles have been weakened enough by the hair removal treatment.

"Dr. Lee Laris, D.O., is the Medical Director and Chief Cosmetic Surgeon of Phoenix Skin Medical Surgical Group in Phoenix, Ariz. Dr. Laris graduated from Gannon University in Erie, Pa., in 1981 and continued his education at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, Calif., where he received his Medical Degree in 1987. He completed his internship at Grandview Hospital in Dayton, Ohio."

Laser hair removal is an excellent way of removing unwanted hair and it is fairly safe when all safety protocol is followed and the treatment is done by a trained and licensed professional. However, laser hair removal is not a permanent hair removal treatment but a permanent hair reduction treatment. Many individuals post comments after only couple of sessions that their hair has disappeared. By far this is not enough time to judge the treatment as with many cases the hair can grow back after a few month - although much less and not as thick. (Link removed by moderator.)
