Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability. Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.
Laser Hair Reduction utilizes light technology to destroy hair follicles at their roots, and therefore, incapacitate the follicle’s ability to regrow in the future. The laser’s light energy focuses on the pigment found within the hair follicle.
The burst of energy is tunneled down from the tip of the hair follicle to it’s root, where the nutrients needed to create and nuture a hair follicle live. The burst of energy destroys the root of the hair (where it also holds the most pigment and therefore receives the highest amount of energy burst). The surrounding nutrients are also damaged, thus leaving the hair unable to grow in the future.
Because the laser focuses the energy on the pigment of the hair, those that have dark hair and light skin (the best contrast difference between hair and skin), often have the quickest results since the majority of the laser’s energy is focusing on the hair rather than being scattered against the skin.
However, with today’s newest laser therapy, we can treat all skin types, including African American. However, for those with less contrast between hair and skin color, more sessions will be needed since the laser energy levels must be lower to avoid complications.
Most patents will need between 3 and 6 treatments of the area before full hair reduction can be achieved. The treatment is dependent upon the hair follicle being present at the time of treatment. Since our hair grows in cycles, approximately only a third of your hair will be present during each treatment.
It is important to schedule your treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart to accurately treat the hair as it cycles. It is also important to not wax or pluck hair (although shaving is fine) six weeks prior to treatment. Both waxing and plucking removes the bulb of the hair follicle that the laser needs to accurately target the energy.
It is also important to stop tanning at least 3 weeks prior to the treatments. The better the contrast between your skin and your hair, the better your results!
