Laser Hair Removal Los Angeles January 16, 2019September 24, 2019 How to Stop Body Hair Growth with Laser Hair Removal Los Angeles Laser Hair Removal at Sculpt Silver Lake is recognized as the premiere method of ridding yourself of unwanted hair. It is one of the safest and most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States today, having been available under the care of a licensed medical professional for over two decades. Unlike shaving, waxing and plucking, laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction in hair to the targeted treatment area. All laser hair removal involves the use of a beam of light, or laser, which is able to be directed at the subdermal skin layer to target the melanin in a hair follicle. The light destroys the hair follicle and causes the body to shed the hair impacted. Melanin is the component of hair and skin that gives it its color. Historically, laser hair treatments were limited to individuals with light skin color and darker hair, with coarse hair being optimal. Skin color is graded on the Fitzpatrick Scale, with one being the lightest and six being the darkest. Until recently, laser hair removal was best utilized on skin colors 1-3. The paler skin colors absorb less of the laser light, allowing greater concentration to be focused on the hair follicle. This prevents damage to the skin and surrounding tissue, while maximizing hair follicle damage, preventing regrowth.
