Laser hair removal is a non-invasive and painless procedure that induces permanent hair loss in targeted areas of the body. This treatment destroys the targeted hair follicles, thereby stopping hair growth forever. Laser hair removal is suitable for treatment areas that you want to smoothen permanently, such as the shoulders, underarms, legs, or upper lips. It liberates you from the need for constant maintenance in the form of waxing, shaving, and tweezing, and the treatment itself is painless and comfortable. Medical Aesthetics is here for you for your Evergreen laser hair removal needs.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Each individual hair strand grows out of a tube-like hair follicle in three stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The growing hair is connected to the hair follicle and root in the first stage (anagen), but it gradually gets disengaged and falls away. When the laser energy is directed at the unwanted hair follicles, the pigment in the hair absorbs the energy and is destroyed. All the unwanted hair follicles in the anagen stage are immediately destroyed, stopping hair growth completely. The other hair follicles can be targeted with laser energy over successive sessions once they reach the anagen stage.
How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Our Evergreen laser hair removal provider carefully examines the hair in the targeted regions, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history. The laser device is adjusted according to your specific skin quality and hair color, and it’s guided over the treatment areas. As the laser energy enters your skin, you experience a slight warming sensation, but there’s no pain. The entire treatment concludes within 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
You’re a candidate for laser hair removal if you have unwanted hair in some body parts that you constantly wax or shave off. Laser hair removal can permanently smoothen the area, so you never have to worry about waxing again. The aesthetic technician will carefully assess your skin and hair quality to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment.
