Our laser works by permanently damaging and destroying targeted hair follicles, preventing regrowth. The laser emits light energy which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This targets the hair roots beneath the skin at specific stages of their growth cycles, damaging the bulb and preventing regrowth, a process called photothermolysis. This is why we recommend at least 8 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to ensure all follicles are targeted at the right time.

What is IPL?

 

Laser hair removal is the most effective hair removal procedure available, and it may be used on practically any part of the body or face.

Unlike other hair removal treatments like waxing and shaving, laser hair removal provides long-term effects. With each treatment, the hair will become finer and softer, making it less apparent, and the growth will slow down.

Read on to learn more about how laser hair removal works, how long it lasts, and what you should expect from your treatment.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Light energy is used in laser hair removal to damage or kill individual hair follicles permanently. This procedure uses a medical-grade laser to target the roots beneath the skin’s surface to prevent regrowth.

To prevent hair from returning, the hair follicle must be targeted at a certain point in its growth cycle. Because individual hairs may be in different stages of the hair development cycle at any given time, multiple treatment sessions will be required to get long-term benefits. Typically, 6-8 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended.

Men and women of all skin tones can benefit from laser hair removal. It works on every part of your body, especially in delicate regions like your face and bikini line. Facial hair, leg hair, bikini region, underarm hair, back hair, and chest hair are all popular targets.

What Is The Difference Between Electrolysis And Laser Hair Removal?

Electrolysis is another sort of hair removal procedure that a dermatologist might perform. It also stops hair from growing.

An epilator device is inserted into the skin during the procedure. To inhibit new hair from sprouting, it uses shortwave radio frequencies in hair follicles. This causes existing hairs to fall out and destroys your hair follicles, preventing further hair growth. However, for the best outcomes, you’ll need many follow-up consultations.

The disadvantage of electrolysis is that it requires more sessions. It is not capable of covering wide areas at once, as laser hair removal can. Your choice may be influenced by how quickly you wish to get rid of the hair.

Why Laser Hair Removal?

With our laser hair removal procedure, you may enjoy flawless skin without the ingrown hairs and irritation that shaving can cause. Waxing, sugaring, and hair removal lotions/depilatory creams produce less permanent results.

Unlike IPL (intense pulsed light), laser hair removal is suitable for dark skin tones and hard-to-reach places. It differs from electrolysis in that it can be used to remove hair from any part of the body, and it can target large regions at once.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Hair progresses through four stages of development; you have hair going through all four phases at any given time.

They are as follows:

  • Anagen (growing phase).

  • Catagen (transitional phase).

  • Telogen (resting phase).

  • Exogen (shedding phase).

Existing hairs are vaporised underneath the skin and at the root with laser hair removal. As a result, it can only target hairs that are in the anagen (growing) phase. That’s why it takes several treatments, spread out, to get rid of all of the hair that grows in a given area.

During the duration of laser treatments, you will continue to see hair growth. Some of it will be regrowth, but the majority of it will be untreated hair. You may not observe regrowth for many years after your treatment is finished.

Laser hair removal on the body can produce permanent or very long-lasting results. Any hair that does grow back overtime should be sparse and thin.

Laser hair removal on the face isn’t usually permanent, although it can be. After ten years or more, some people claim that their hair hasn’t grown back. Others see regrowth more quickly and require annual touchup treatments to keep undesired hair at bay.

The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal
  • Permanent hair reduction: Laser hair removal can decrease up to 90% of hair in a single treatment. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter, and softer, with smoother skin as a bonus.

  • No more ingrown hairs: Because laser hair removal dramatically eliminates the need for shaving and waxing, ingrown hairs, shaving irritation, and stubble are no longer an issue.

  • Save time and money: If you invest in the course of laser hair removal, you may never have to wax or shave again, saving you both time and money.
