How Does Laser Removal Work?

What makes laser hair removal permanent? Your esthetician uses a laser device that emits a specific wavelength of light. Then, that light gets absorbed by the hair. 

As the light energy transforms into heat, it eliminates the hair follicle. The result is a permanent reduction in hair growth, especially with repeat treatments.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Why should you try laser hair removal? The benefits are as follows:

  • With permanent results, you can save the money you’d spend on buying razors or waxing strips.

  • You’ll have skin that feels smooth, soft, and totally hairless.

  • No more feeling self-conscious about unwanted hair.

  • Never worry about forgetting to shave or wax before you go swimming.

  • You won’t have to deal with razor burn, ingrown hairs, or the pain of waxing!

Hair Growth Cycle

The hair growth cycle plays a pivotal role in the success of your treatment. Your hair grows in four phases:

  1. Anagen: The hair is actively growing.
  2. Catagen: Active growth ends, and the transitional phase begins.
  3. Telogen: The hair rests and does not actively grow.
  4. Exogen: Hairs shed as they are released from follicles.

The goal is to eliminate the hair follicle for a permanent reduction in hair growth. To do this, the hair must be in the Anagen phase. 

The length of the hair growth cycle varies from client to client. And because not all hair follicles are in the same phase simultaneously, it takes multiple treatments to achieve the best results. Typically, we schedule each treatment 6-8 weeks apart. 

Pre & Post Care

Here’s how to prepare for your upcoming treatment: Before you come in for your appointment, shave the treatment area. You should also cleanse the skin to remove any makeup, oils, or creams. Make sure to avoid sun exposure before and after your treatment. 

Once your treatment is complete, follow this skincare routine:

  • Put on sunscreen whenever you go outside.
  • Do not exfoliate the skin for ~48 hours post-treatment.
  • If you experience any redness or tenderness, apply aloe vera

Find Your Hair Removal Treatment:

We offer two kinds of hair removal treatments: Laser hair removal and electrolysis. Each has a different mechanism of action, but both provide long-lasting and effective results.

There’s more than one way to remove unwanted hair for good. We offer the following hair removal treatments:

Laser hair removal

Using laser light therapy, we will permanently eliminate hair follicles for results that last a lifetime. Our laser hair removal services are available for the entire body.

Electrolysis

With this method, we use an electric current to destroy the hair follicle. We offer two types of electrolysis:

Using the Thermolysis method (or the shortwave method), your esthetician will insert the tip of the electrolysis needle into the hair follicle, which emits high-frequency radio energy. This destroys the hair follicle through electrocoagulation.

The Blend method (or dual action method) combines the thermolysis technique with chemical decomposition for more comprehensive results.
