Laser hair reduction is a safe, virtually painless method of removing unwanted hair. It works by focusing a laser beam at the base of the hair follicle, halting hair growth. Laser hair removal is different to the Intense Pulsed Light system (IPL) which uses less powerful, diffused light waves. Laser hair reduction can be used on any part of the body, including the most common problem areas: face, bikini area, legs and underarms. Many professionals and celebrities choose laser hair removal as it is considered the highest quality, most safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from visible areas.

Laser is the, one of the fastest growing and most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures since the early 1990’s when it gained FDA Approval and recognition. Both male and female individuals are experiencing this convenient and non-invasive way to permanently reduce or remove their unwanted body and facial hair.

Laser hair removal is required when one’s hair is darker than the surrounding skin. Additionally very darkly pigmented people absorb too much laser energy in their skin and are not ideal candidates. Tanned patients with light hair are not candidates. Tanned patient with dark hair should wait until their tan fades before they are treated. Science the laser targets pigments; the best candidate is a patient with dark hair and light skin. This will allow the laser to obliterate the hair follicle without damage to the surrounding and overlying skin. The laser is ineffective against dray or blonde hair. The darker skinned individuals can undergo laser hair reduction, but special considerations and lower energy levels are required.

Treatment cost varies with the size of the area treated. Large areas, such as the entire back, or the entire legs, cost considerably more. Small areas, such as the upper lip, can be less. Individual consultation with the laser Centre is necessary to obtain exact pricing.

Light skin makes laser hair removal easier to perform. Fewer treatments are required, and better, faster results are obtained. People with darker skin can be treated, but results are slower, more sessions are required, and greater expertise is required on the part of the laser centre . Laser hair removal must be individualized for each patient.

Dark hair absorbs more laser energy and is easier to treat. Coarse dark hair responds the best laser treatment. Light hair is more difficult to treat. Blonde or red hair is very difficult to treat multiple treatment sessions are required, and results are variable. Blonde or red hair usually contains pheomelanin, which absorbs laser energy less avidly than the eumelanin pigment, which is present in black or brown hair.

Although one laser session can produce long-term hair removal, as a rule multiple treatment sessions are necessary to obtain optimal results. In large part this is due to the fact that laser hair removal is most effective for hair, which is in the anagen phase. Anagen is the growth phase of hair. Since hair grows in cycles, not all of the hairs are in anagen at any given time. Additional sessions are necessary to target all of the hairs when they are in anagen.

Any area, expect adjacent to the eye, where there is excess hair. The most common are as requested are the face, upper lip, neck, chest, periareolar, underarms, back, abdomen, bikini line, and legs.

Waxing, shaving, and plucking all produce hair removal, which is temporary. Several of the newer lasers have clearly documented that there is permanent hair reduction after each treatment. The results tend to be additive, i.e. more treatments lead to greater degrees of permanent hair reduction. For any given patient results cannot be precisely predicated. Results can be variable, even with the best lasers.

Laser hair reduction should give a 70% reduction in hair growth. What grows back is lighter, thinner and finer hair quality. However, it is experienced that the majority of patients have been happy with their results.

The number of treatments for laser hair reduction is variable. Clients require 8-10 sessions spaced one to two months apart, and possibly touch-up during the lifetime. It is important to understand that hair grows in cycles. In order for the laser to be efficacious, the hair follicle must be in the active growing phase. Therefore, hair follicles that are in the resting stage will be resistant to laser therapy at that time.

Sun exposure or tanning should be avoided. This can be accomplished by the use of sunscreens. The treated areas should be handled gently, avoiding the use of abrasive cleansers or topical acne preparations. If necessary, a topical antibiotic such as Flutibact, T-Bact (a prescription antibiotic available as a cream or an ointment) can be applied. Most patients experience no noticeable after effects of laser hair removal.

Is not instance, no perceptible skin changes are apparent. Rarely, mild redness and swelling may occurs, it usually fades within 24 hours. At the time of treatment many of the hairs are removed, and others shed in 1-2 weeks following the treatment. In most instances you will be able to apply makeup immediately if you chose.

The intense Pulse Light was developed from years of research at the Weliman Laboratories of Photo medicine, one of the world’s leading medical laser research institutions . The laser is pulsed, or “turned on”, for only a fraction of a second and the hair follicles. A unique component of the intense Pulse Light is the actively cooled sapphire hand piece, was designed to protect the skin by actively cooling it before, during and after the laser light is transmitted. It also actively draws off heat from the skin surface, which further protects the skin from injury.

The cooling tip has a mild an aesthetic property, which allows tender areas to be treated in a relatively painless fashion. You may feel a tingling or stinging sensation during the treatment , but most people tolerate the procedure well. Topical an aesthetic is available to increase your comfort, if u choose. Following your treatment, you may experience a sunburn-type sensation in the treated area for several hours.

The main difference between this technology and the traditional method known as electrolysis, is that laser can treat multiple hair follicles at one time, no longer requiring the need to identify and probe each individual hair follicle, as is done with electrolysis. Laser hair removal is relatively new technology. Most people need an average of 8-10 treatments. Hair grows in cycles and subsequent treatments are necessary to treat the follicles that are lying dormant below the surface of the skin. These dormant follicles contain little pigment and are not affected by the first treatment.
