How Laser Hair Removal Works.
Laser Hair Removal is the process of destroying hair follicles within selected areas of the skin; causing the unwanted hair to fall out, and not grow back. This leaves areas of smooth skin where hair once grew and is the perfect treatment for eliminating hair on your body that makes you feel uncomfortable, irritates you, or is unattractive.
Laser Hair Removal works by emitting a near-infrared laser beam of light at the melanin (pigment located in the hair follicle). This is done with a precision instrument which damages the hair follicle and not the surrounding skin. The laser is repetitively turned on for only fractional seconds, which is long enough to thermally damage the follicle and prevent further hair growth.
Factors That Are Significant to Laser Hair Removal.
Growth Cycle of the Hair:
There are three main stages of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. The Anagen stage is when the hair is actively growing. The Catagen stage is when the follicle transitions from growth to dormancy. The Telogen stage is when the follicle remains at rest and the hairs fall out. Different sets of hair respond best to laser treatment at different stages of growth.
Individual characteristics such as hair and skin colour and hair density will determine the effectiveness of the treatment as well. Some people may require minimal treatments whereas others may require multiple treatments to see the full benefit of the treatment. Clinics that use modern and high quality equipment will be able to treat patients will all skin colours, so ensure you seek a clinic using the best equipment.
You should meet with your treatment provider before booking an appointment to discuss your hair growth and your desired outcome. A reputable provider should offer you a free consultation and an accurate cost per treatment session. No provider will be able to guarantee exactly how many sessions you will need, but it will certainly be more than one.
Why Multiple Treatment Sessions Are Needed.
It is necessary to undertake more than one treatment session for laser hair removal because it is not possible to eliminate all of the unwanted hair in one session.
The hair growth on your body will be in one of the 3 stages of growth, but not all hair will be in the same growth stage at the same time. It is necessary to have additional treatments in order to target all of the hair in the correct growth stage.
