Are You a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal Atlanta GA

Shaving and waxing unwanted hair is both painful and time consuming. If you want to get your stubborn hair removed permanently, then you should consider laser hair removal in Atlanta, Georgia.  

What Is Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses a special pulse-light laser to permanently remove your hair from unwanted areas. Melanin is responsible for giving your hair it’s color. The laser’s light targets the melanin which breaks down the hair follicle under the skin. 

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Keeping in mind that the laser triggers melanin, there are some people who are better candidates than others for laser hair removal. Here are some guidelines so that you can see where you fit in. 

Hair and Skin Type
The ideal hair type for laser hair removal is dark and coarse, but that’s not to say that this treatment won’t work on lighter hair. Also having pale skin and dark hair allows for the laser to more effectively and easily target the melanin. Individuals with darker skin tones may have a harder time achieving their desired results from laser hair removal.

Treatment Area
Laser hair removal is excellent for larger areas of skin such as underarms, legs, arms, and back. However, it can also be done on facial hair such as the upper lip and chin or even the bikini area.
