How It Works:
Hair removal by laser works by damaging the hair follicle using intense wavelength specific laser light. The laser seeks out and hits the pigment (hair color) in the follicle, thus damaging it.
Hair follicles are damaged only during one phase of the hair growth cycle; therefore multiple treatments are needed to remove hair in all stages. Sometimes, the follicles cycle together meaning that a treatment hits many cells at the correct point in the cycle resulting in great early results. However, the laser can also hit most cells when they are not vulnerable, giving minimal results. Usually, though, hair cells are in all phases of hair growth resulting in reasonable and consistent hair removal.
As mentioned, the laser attacks hair’s pigment. Dark hair gets quicker results than lighter hair. Some clients with darker hair may start to see their desired results in as little as three treatments. Most clients require seven to ten visits. People with albinism or who have gone grey are not candidates for laser hair removal.
Treatment intervals vary depending on body area. In general, visits for the face and neck are every four weeks, the torso arms every six to eight weeks, and the lower body and legs every eight to ten weeks.
Before your first visit, make sure your skin is in a healthy condition and that you are not pregnant.
Tanned skin is not a problem, but acute sunburn must heal before any treatment.
Shave the night before or the morning of treatment.
If you have taken the prescription drug for acne, a six months wait before laser hair removal is required.
Depigmentation can occur with darker skin. The same wavelength that damages the follicle can seek out and remove melanin (skin pigment) from your skin. When this is a concern, a test area is done at no charge in a place not visible, and then checked in four weeks before further treatment.
Note: Most people require 7-10 treatments
