Watch this Laser Remove Your Hair
The video clip below shows the action of a laser hair removal tool on a patch of skin. Each flash is a pulse of laser light. The laser cooks the hair just like popcorn;* you can even see the hairs become puffy. Shaving before the treatment means only the root will be cooked. As it cooks, the cells next to the hair responsible for its growth are killed, making you hairless for life! The brief flashes prevent any of the skin from accidentally getting burnt.
At Azani Medical Spa, a local business serving the Lehigh Valley area—Easton, Bethlehem, and Allentown—we offer this laser hair removal service and many other aesthetic and plastic surgery options to help you reach your goals. Our certified specialists would be happy to answer any of your questions at 610-625-3000.

*In cooking popcorn, the microwaves heat the water molecules directly causing them to become trapped steam which expands the popcorn. The laser heats the melanin molecules, however, the heat still causes the water to turn into steam which is trapped causing the hair to expand.
