Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is generally based on the principle of selective thermodynamics and the latest laser technology. The light beam emitted by the laser machine will penetrate the surface of the skin and finally be absorbed by the hair follicle. Through the selective absorption of laser energy, the hair follicle will be damaged and can not regenerate long hair without damaging the surrounding tissue. The process of laser hair removal is simple and fast. Generally, there is no scar after treatment.

During laser hair removal treatment, some patients may have temporary redness or swelling, or even mild skin pruritus. The redness and swelling subside and the skin returns to normal a few hours after treatment. Because the laser will not damage the skin, there is no need to do any treatment. The time required for treating different parts is also different. The time for treating the beard part of the lip is 5 to 10 minutes, the time for treating the hair of both lower legs is 30 to 40 minutes, and the time for treating the hair of both lower limbs is about 90 minutes.
