LASER HAIR REMOVAL
What Is Laser Hair Reduction?
The treatment involves using a device that emits an intense light that selectively heats up the pigment within the hair shaft in the portion of the hair follicle that is under the surface of the skin. Heating the portion of the hair shaft that is within the dermis, which is surrounded by the live hair making cells damages or destroys hair production. The goal of this treatment is to change the thick and dark hair shafts to fine, short, and lighter hair shafts. A few weeks after the treatment the skin will feel smoother and softer.
How Do I Know When The Appropriate Time Is to Repeat This Treatment?
Depending on the body area, at any given time 10-65% of the hair follicles are in a resting phase for a few months. For this reason, 2-5 follow up treatments may be needed to treat the actively hair growing hair follicles to gain the desired outcome. At the time of treatment, ideally only the tips of the hair shaft should be visible. You are asked to shave the area the is to be treated beforehand. For maximum benefit from each treatment, you are asked not to wax, pluck, or use depilatory creams for two weeks prior to any laser treatment.
