Laser hair removal is a popular and reliable aesthetic treatment at Advanced Skin Renewal, LLC of Westlake, Ohio. However, not everyone wants full removal of hair in a particular area. Instead, some patients desire just a reduction in the thickness of the hair. This is often the case in patients with excessive body hair in areas such as the back, chest, and arms. Fortunately, laser hair removal doesn’t always have to mean complete removal of unwanted hair. For some, it can help achieve hair reduction instead.
Patients who undergo laser hair removal treatments will need more than one treatment to get the desired results. The laser light energy penetrates the skin and damages the hair follicles in the active growth phase. This causes the hair to fall out and never regrow.
To achieve full hair removal, patients will need to have several treatment sessions spaced a few weeks apart to catch all of the natural hairs in their active growth phase in the hair growth cycle with time. It is a process and requires time to get full removal to occur. However, patients interested in just a reduction in hair thickness in an area may benefit from just a few treatment sessions instead. These sessions are also spaced apart but help patients address some of the hair follicles in the treatment area instead of all. This means less expensive treatment to reduce hair thickness instead of eliminating it entirely. Patients will find that this treatment effectively thins hair on the body in a more affordable manner than complete removal.
