Laser Hair Reduction: A Lasting Solution to an Annoying Problem
Having excess hair growth is a nightmare that never fails to go away. It may grow on the face, legs, feet, hands, fingers, and toes. Getting rid of all of it is often time consuming and tedious task that most hate.
What makes the unwanted hair grow? Though hair growth is a natural process, for a few, it’s a burden since the unwanted hair grows fast. The cause of untimely hair growth is higher levels of certain hormones, polycystic ovarian syndrome, genetics, and certain medications such as steroids.
How To Remove Unwanted Hair
There are several ways to remove unwanted hair. While some target the facial hair, others are suitable for all parts of the body.
Shaving and depilatory Creams are a fast and easy way to remove unwanted hair, the drawback being, the hair grows back really fast. Waxing can be incredibly painful when removing that excess hair from certain parts of your body as well. Hot waxing can either be done at home, or at a salon by professionals. It is a messy and painful way to remove unwanted hair.
Electrolysis is another hair removal method done by professionals where a tiny needle with an electric current is placed in the hair follicle which destroys the hair.
Laser hair removal is one of the longest lasting methods of hair removal. A concentrated beam of light is used to remove the excess hair. The light energy heats and damages the hair follicles and delays hair growth.
These temporary and sometimes painful methods of removing hair can be disregarded by the latest technology such as the Cynosure Smartpil II Neodimium-YAG Laser.
Cynosure Smartpil II Neodimium-YAG Laser
In the late ’90s, shaving, waxing, hair removal creams, tweezing or electrolysis were the only options for removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal was born when in the 1980s, a Russian physicist accidentally lasered himself on the arm while developing the Ruby laser for defense purposes.
It was observed that it took months for new hair to grow and realized that hair loss could be made permanent through repeated applications. Today, the fastest system of hair removal in the market is the Cynosure Smartpil II Neodimium-YAG Laser which is two generations ahead of the ruby laser.
The Cynosure Smartpil II Neodimium-YAG Laser generates a specific wavelength of focused light. This light is absorbed by the color pigments present in the hair and creates heat. The cells that produced the hair are damaged by the heat generated near the base of the hair follicles which in turn stops hair growth. The treatment is recommended every six to eight weeks to stop hair growth completely. It usually takes two to three sessions to notice that there are only a few hairs left.
This laser hair reduction can be used on any part of the body. What keeps Cynosure Smartpil II Neodimium-YAG Laser ahead of other laser hair removal treatments is that it is suitable for all skin types and the best solution to the most annoying problem.
