WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVER?
How laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce
long-term hair reduction. This is accomplished by
producing heat in the hair, which is transferred to the
hair follicle, which in-turn produces inflammation, and
this inflammation sends a signal to the hair follicle to
go into the resting (telogen) phase.
What is a laser, really?
First of all, what is a laser? A laser is a device that
produces light of a single color or wavelength. In
dermatology, these lasers produce pulses of high-energy
light that is taken up by the desired target. In the
case of hair removal, the target is the melanin pigment
contained within the hair shaft.
A delicate balance
The tricky part of laser hair removal is targeting the
hair shaft without damaging the melanin pigment in the
surface of the skin. Thus the laser light has to be on
long enough to heat the hair, but not too long to allow
that heat to spread to the surrounding skin causing
damage. In addition, the darker a patientís skin, the
more difficult it is to avoid injuring the surface of
the skin while treating the hair. For this reason, there
are three main types of hair removal lasers that are
used today, and depending on the thickness of the hair
and the color of the skin, one laser may provide
benefits as compared to another.
When Performing Laser Hair Removal,
In addition to lasers, intense pulsed light sources are
also used for hair removal. These light sources do not
emit a single color or wavelength of light, but emit
light containing many colors. It may be more difficult
to predict the outcome and avoid complications when
using light sources that contain many wavelengths of
light. However, the results with any device depend upon
the experience of the practitioner.
How many treatments?
Normally, a series of three to five treatments are
administered at four to eight week intervals depending
upon the location of the hair. Following the initial
series of treatments, subsequent treatments are
administered, usually at longer and longer intervals.
Some number of maintenance of treatments may be needed
to keep all the hair away in a given area. After a
single treatment, the hair in a given area is usually
reduced in amount and thickness for a very long period
of time. However, it may not be completely gone. To keep
an area completely devoid of hair, maintenance
treatments are always required. These maintenance
treatments may eventually be required at only yearly
intervals or even longer. This depends on the area being
treated as well as the individual. As with any other
traits in an individual, the frequency of maintenance
treatments varies considerably from person to person.
