Understanding the Laser Hair Removal Process

At Blackfriars Salon & Medi Spa, we know how vital Selective Photothermolysis is for laser hair removal’s success. This method makes sure the laser focuses only on the melanin in your hair. It does this without hurting the skin around it. Our expert technicians use the right laser settings to make the treatment work well and be safe at the same time.

Laser Targets Melanin in Hair Follicles

The secret of laser hair removal science is in how it finds and attacks the melanin in your hair. When the melanin absorbs laser energy, it turns into heat. This heat then stops the hair follicle from growing more hair. The laser works only where it should, which keeps your skin safe and the treatment precise.

Permanently Reduces Hair Growth by Up to 90%

Laser hair removal’s amazing benefit is less hair that can grow back by up to 90%. By stopping the hair follicles from working, the laser treatments at Blackfriars Salon & Medi Spa keep hair away. This gives you skin that’s smooth and free from hair. After several treatments, you will enjoy having much less unwanted hair.
