Laser hair removal
Laser permanent hair removal has become very popular and is most often performed on the upper lip, chin, bikini line, legs, armpits, and back. Hair growth takes place in a 4-phase cycle for the individual hair follicle, so that the hair follicle first forms a new hair (the growth phase), which remains unchanged for a long time and then grows out. The hair follicle then rests for a time before repeating the process and forming new hair. As the hair follicles are not adhered to in this process, there will be hair follicles at the same time that do not contain hair. And there will be hair follicles that are producing new hair.
When can you have a laser hair removal
The hair must be in the growth phase for the laser treatment to destroy the hair follicle. Permanent laser hair removal should, therefore, be repeated until all hair follicles are treated during the growth phase. Usually, 6 – 10 treatments are needed to achieve a satisfactory result. The interval between the laser treatments will typically be 4 – 8 weeks. Between each treatment, you get fewer hairs, and they become thinner and more elegant.
The color of the hair matters
Permanent laser hair removal works only on dark hair. Red and light hair, therefore, cannot be treated. The best result is achieved by laser treatment of dark hair on light skin.
Result of permanent hair removal with laser treatment
The result will vary from person to person, depending on hair color and skin type. At best, you can count on approx. 70% of the hairs disappear. The broken hair follicles do not form hair, but new hair follicles may emerge. On average, you should expect the hairs to fade for 9 – 24 months, after which some laser treatments may be necessary.
How does the laser work?
The laser emits a short pulse of a very intense light within the visible light spectrum. The dye of the hair absorbs the sun, and the light energy is converted to heat energy within milliseconds. The heat that develops in the hair strand permanently destroys the hair follicle.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.26.3″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.26.3″][et_pb_column _builder_version=”3.26.3″ type=”4_4″][et_pb_blog _builder_version=”3.26.3″ include_categories=”51″ fullwidth=”off”][/et_pb_blog][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
