How does laser target unwanted hair?
Laser hair removal works by targeting individual hair follicles with a laser beam, delivering a concentrated beam of light that is selectively absorbed by the pigments in the hair. This light energy then converts to heat and destroys the hair follicle, stopping further growth. It’s an incredibly precise procedure, able to deliver maximum results with minimal discomfort and no damage to the surrounding skin – great news for those seeking to remove unwanted body and facial hair! Laser hair removal also has many advantages over traditional methods like waxing or shaving, as it saves time and can be done more effectively in fewer sessions. Plus, it’s a great way to get rid of stubborn hairs without damaging your skin in any way. No wonder it’s becoming increasingly popular!

The short answer is yes – laser hair removal is typically safe when done correctly by a qualified professional.

To reduce the risk of any potential side effects and ensure results,
it’s important to choose an experienced provider who uses quality technology such as Health-Canada-cleared lasers. Additionally, it’s essential to follow all pre-treatment and post-care instructions provided by your practitioner, including avoiding direct sun exposure for several days before and after treatments. With high-quality technology and advanced techniques used by skilled practitioners, you can rest assured that laser hair removal is both safe and effective for removing unwanted body and facial hair permanently.
Why does it take multiple sessions for Medical laser hair removal?
Medical Laser hair removal is most effective when a hair follicle is at a specific growth stage (anagen). Usually, hair follicles are at three different growth stages. Depending on the body part, it might take a hair follicle a couple of weeks or months to go through the whole growth stages. We must hit the hair with the laser beam at the anagen stage. One session will terminate most of the hair at that stage; then, we have to wait for the hair that survives the first session to grow to that stage before we hit it with a laser again. There is no way for us to know what stage a hair follicle is at. We can target as much hair as possible by adjusting the setting and spot size.
