How Laser Hair Reduction Works

Lutronic Clarity laser, the Gold Standard in Laser Hair Removal is now available at Neaman MediSpa. The most advanced laser technology on the market today that offers faster results, fewer treatments, more comfort and hair removal on all skin types. We understand the science behind hair removal and offer a laser that treats a wide variety of different hair colors and thicknesses in a variety of skin types. Virtually all locations can be treated including back, arms, legs, face, chest, bikini area and underarms.

The Lutronic Laser removes or profoundly reduces unwanted hair by laser light. When the correct wavelength of laser light is applied to hair in the treatment area, melanin in the hair absorbs the light, which is converted into heat energy. The buildup of thermal energy causes the destruction of hair follicles as well as associated stem cells and dermal papillae, while the surrounding skin is undamaged. Some follicles will only be damaged or may regrow, so numerous treatments are required to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair effectively for a persistent result.
