Laser Hair Removal Albuquerque & Santa Fe

Few of us enjoy spending time shaving, waxing, or threading our unwanted hair. Laser hair removal provides long-lasting hair removal results. This treatment lets you find better uses for the time and money you used to waste on the tedious task of hair removal. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Most of your skin has hair follicles that grow hairs. In some places, this hair is not welcome. Laser hair removal treats your hair follicles to stop them from growing new hairs. Your hair roots contain melanin, a pigment that absorbs the laser energy as heat. The heat damages the follicle, causing it to shed the hair and stop growing new ones. Your Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute team uses the Harmony® XL Pro laser for safe, effective results.

Men and women often rate hair removal as one of the worst personal care tasks. It takes time out of your day, and you have to repeat it endlessly. You can put an end to tedious shaving, waxing, or plucking with laser hair removal. This treatment stops hair from growing, so you have effortlessly smooth skin.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal uses pulses of laser energy to deactivate hair follicles. This treatment stops hair growth by targeting melanin, the pigment that gives hair its color. Each active follicle has a hair root inside, and the laser heats the pigments in the hair until the heat shuts down the follicle. At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we offer Super Hair Removal (SHR) with the Harmony® laser. This laser provides the most comfortable and effective hair removal available. 

Shaving, waxing, and threading are just a few ways people struggle with unwanted facial or body hair. Stop wasting time and money on these inefficient methods and consider laser hair removal. This treatment removes hair at the root and prevents it from growing back for long-lasting smooth skin. 

What is Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. It targets hair follicles, which absorb the laser energy and stop growing hair.  Laser hair removal can treat hair on various parts of the body, including the face, arms, legs, underarms, bikini line, and back. It offers a long-term option for people tired of shaving, waxing, or plucking.
