Pain Free Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is now one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedure in the world.
Laser hair removal destroys the hair growing capacity of hair follicles by targeting them with pulses of extremely high intensity energy. This energy directed from the hand piece is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle momentarily heating it to around 70 degrees centigrade killing the follicle and thus preventing further hair growth. Most people have melanin in their skin that also absorbs the energy heat in the skin. If this heat is excessive it will cause burns. For this reason the ideal candidates for these treatments are those who are dark haired with white skin. Therefore, we always insist that clients stay out of the sun for a few weeks prior to treatment so that the level of melanin in the skin is as low as possible.
Hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth including age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism along with the hair location, thickness and resilience. Only hair that is in its growing cycle (Anagen) will be destroyed at each treatment session. The numbers of hairs growing at any one time and the length of time between treatments varies, but generally we allow 4 to 8 weeks.
