What is Laser Hair Removal, and How Does it Work?

Many of us know what it is like to have hair growing in unwanted places. There are a number of ways to manage unwanted hair, many of them painful and impermanent. Waxing and shaving are two common examples. If you are tired of the discomfort and inconvenience of waxing, shaving, and plucking, you may be a good candidate for laser hair removal. With locations in Renton and Maple Valley, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons offers medspa services designed to rid you of unwanted hair effortlessly.

Laser hair removal works by emitting low-level laser light, which is absorbed by the pigment of the hair. The light is converted into heat, damaging the follicles and inhibiting future hair growth.

All About Laser Technology

At our medspa, we use laser technology known as elōs Plus. This is an advanced laser modality that is approved by the FDA for safe and effective clinical hair removal. We prefer this technology because it comes with a number of built-in features to ensure patient safety and comfort, such as cooling technology. Additionally, different handpieces make it easy for us to target hair virtually anywhere on the body.
