LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Non-Invasive Treatment

Laser Hair Removal

Traditional hair removal techniques like shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief. Electrolysis often requires years of ongoing treatments.

Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment inside the hair follicle with very little damage to the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Because hair cycles through “growth” and “dormant” phases, and because during the “dormant” phase the follicle has no pigment, at least 2 or 3 treatments will be needed. The number of sessions will vary for each individual.

The area to be treated is shaved. A small handpiece, or “wand” is placed against the skin and a burst of coolant is applied as the laser is activated.

The handpiece is repositioned and the laser is activated again. The size or the area treated will determine the number of laser “pulses” required. With electrolysis, the operator inserts a needle into the hair shaft with the intention of reaching the follicle and then sends a small electrical charge designed to disable the follicle. The operator then removes that particular hair with a tweezer. Hair removal is much faster with a laser as the laser is pulsed about once per second across the surface of the skin.

Each “pulse” of laser light disables a large number of hair follicles. Electrolysis operators can only treat those hairs that they can see and the follicle they can reach through the hair shaft. A laser treats any “active” follicle, even if the hair has not yet reached the surface of the skin, or if the hair shaft is not straight. While some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, most patients report little or no discomfort. For more sensitive patients, anesthetic creams can be applied prior to the treatment.
