Understanding the Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to cease unwanted hair growth. Since it is non-invasive, there is no downtime after the procedure. This treatment relies on laser energy to target the melanin in the hair follicle. This destroys the hair follicle and prevents hair from regrowing.

For best results, seek a professional for laser hair removal. The treatment is customizable to your skin tone and type.

Let’s see what happens during a laser hair removal session:

  • A skilled technician preps your skin before applying the laser beam so that you feel minimal discomfort during the process.

  • Proper prep is crucial because it makes the laser more effective at melanin reduction.

  • For each pulse of light from the device, a small amount of heat penetrates the skin with light energy from emitted photons. This heat damages deep within the follicle so that new hairs cannot grow again.

Laser Hair Removal Results

Not every laser hair removal treatment is permanent. In fact, your hair may grow back after a few weeks or months. This is because hair grows in cycles. There are four phases: anagen (growth), catagen (regression), telogen (resting), and exogen (falling out). Everyone’s hair has a unique schedule and falls out when it’s ready.

The laser targets the follicle where you produce new hairs. If you get regular treatments, all the follicles will eventually die off. This means you will not see those pesky hairs anymore! Say goodbye to waxing and shaving for good.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment Time

One of the best things about IPL laser hair removal is that it usually takes no more than half an hour per session. This means that you could schedule your appointment during a lunch break on a work day. Since no recovery time is involved, you can return to the office immediately.

The time it takes to see results depends on your skin and hair type. Typically, you will see immediate hair follicle death. It can take up to 3-4 treatments before you see complete results. Personal results vary; some may require more sessions to achieve complete hair removal.
