Fast Results of Laser Hair Removal
Unlike electrolysis, which treats each hair individually, laser hair removal eliminates hundreds of unwanted hair follicles in seconds. Large hair removal regions like the back, abdomen, and legs are treated quickly. Facial areas, bikini lines and underarms are also easily treated. Best of all, you will only need a few treatments to permanently and dramatically reduce all unwanted hair.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The laser diode emits a light of a specific color (wavelength) that is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment in the follicles. This process eliminates, or significantly impedes, the hair’s regrowth.
The Growth Phases of Body Hair
There are three distinct phases to hair growth (see below). These phases occur at different times in different hair follicles. Treatment is most effective during the anagan phase of active growth, when the highest concentration of pigment is present, and is somewhat less effective during the other two phases. For this reason, effective hair removal can require several visits.
- Hair’s active growth phase is called anagen. During anagen, the body hair contains an abundance of melanin, the pigment which gives your hair its color. This is the phase during which laser hair removal is most effective.
- The regression phase, called catagen, is when the lower part of the body hair stops growing but is not shed, and the follicle is reabsorbed.
- The resting phase is called telogen. During this phase, the old body hair falls out in preparation for the development of new hair.
