Let’s Understand How Laser Hair Removal Works
When people deal with permanent procedures, there can be a lot of stress and uneasiness related. Understanding the procedure of precisely how laser hair removal is performed, is a key part in dealing with that anxiety and tension before and after the method.
Laser hair removal has been a prevalent hair removal treatment since 1997 and has just turned out to be progressively more powerful in the past few years. It is effective, safe and permanent than other hair removal options, for example, waxing, tweezing or electrolysis.
Therefore, laser hair removal still does not work for people with fine hair, and people with dull hair and dark skin must use a particular kind of laser to see the best results.
Understanding the Laser
The particular lasers used as a part of hair removal, discharge a special light at a wavelength that focuses on the melanin in the hair and at the follicle. Melanin is the thing that gives color to your hair and skin. The laser ray goes through the skin, and is then absorbed by the melanin residing in the hair follicle.
That’s why people with light skin and dark hair are the best. If the skin tone and hair color are very similar, the lasers are unable to distinguish between the skin and hair. A particular “long wave laser” is perfect for dark haired, and dark skinned candidates.
The laser harms the follicle to a point beyond repair, and hair never develops again in that spot. Once the follicle is gone, the skin starts to close and will make a cover surface up the skin.
Why You Require More than One Treatment
Laser hair removal just takes a shot at the hair that is effectively growing. At any given time, a specific level of the hair on your body is in what’s known as the “Resting stage”. The laser won’t effectively remove those hairs, which is the reason behind why you need more than one treatment.
A few areas of the body take to treatment better than others, so the number of treatments may waver, depending on the treatment area. It is important to remember that a single treatment won’t be effective in removing the greater part of the hair from the treatment area. Most patients will require a touch up for at least 1-3 times every year as maintenance, after the initial process is done.
