Laser hair removal uses laser energy measured in joules and the wavelength is based on the skin tone of the client. Laser hair removal works by having energy travel along the hair shaft and destroy the hair at the bulb.
Your hair goes through 3 stages, anagen, catagen and telogen. Succesful laser hair removal occurs when used during the anagen phase. In the anagen phase the hair is in the hair bulb with blood supply and growing strong. Lasers destroy the follicles blood supply and eventually the follicle itself. In the catogen phase, the hair has come out of the hair bulb but still is in the follicle. Since it has no blood supply to support further growth, these hairs are more difficult to remove with lasers. In the telogen phase, the hair is detached and is being pushed out of the follicle by new growth. This is the shedding phase. Since permanent hair reduction happens best in the anagen phase, multiple treatments are required.
New lasers offer hair removal to all skin tones and areas of the body. It is a great way to stop unwanted hair growth or if you suffer from ingrown hairs.
Life without shaving... imagine... you can hit the snooze button.
