How does laser hair removal work?
Unlike Electrolysis, which uses a needle and electrical currents, laser hair removal is gentler on your body and produces minimal side effects.
The laser emits an invisible light which penetrates the skin without damaging it. At the hair follicle, the laser light absorbed by the pigments is converted into heat. Repetition of this process will eventually stop the hair from growing.
Laser hair removal works quickly in the scheme of things – remind yourself that you’re never going to have to shave or wax again – but it typically takes a se
ries of sessions. Laser hair removal works on actively growing hair, so seven to nine sessions, spaced six to eight weeks apart, are typically required to completely remove the hair follicles.
Will it work on me?
Yes! Laser hair removal can work on anyone. However, certain procedures work better on types of hair and skin tones. The technology is based on melanin, the dark color pigments, in hair, so dark hairs contrasting with light skin will have the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time.
How long does it take?
How long a laser hair removal treatment take depends on the size of the treatment area. A session can take just a few minutes or several hours. After your treatment, you will be encouraged to avoid direct sun exposure for several weeks. After six to eight weeks, you can return for a follow-up treatment. This will continue until all new hair growth has stopped, typically in as few as three or as many as six treatments.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal is the least painful hair removal procedure on the market, with levels of discomfort far below the pain felt with electrolysis, waxing, or even a bad razor burn. During the laser hair removal session, most clients say the feel a slight stinging sensation. After the session, your skin may be slightly red and irritated. Although side effects are rare, some patients can experience blisters, swelling, redness and scarring. Slight scarring or alterations in skin color are also possible, but infrequent. Clients with darker skin tend to experience a higher rate of complications.
