Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that uses an intense pulsed light (IPL) or powerful laser to remove unwanted hair. The laser heats and supresses the hair follicle in the skin, which disrupts hair growth. Most commonly treated areas are the face, arms, legs, underarms and bikini line. A number of treatments will be required for best results.
Laser treatment can also be used to remove thread veins from the face, body and legs quickly and effectively. The laser light passes safely through the skin which is then absorbed by the blood vessels, they heat to a point where the blood coagulates and this causes the vein to break down. The damaged veins gradually disperse and fade over several weeks. A number of treatments are required for best results.
