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!

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

While laser hair removal can be an effective way to remove unwanted hair for most people. However, it’s important to remember that it may not be suitable for all types of hair. Laser treatments focus on targeting darker pigments in the skin, meaning they tend to work best on darker-coloured hairs. People with light or red-coloured hair may not have as much success with laser treatment as those with dark hair. Additionally, laser treatments are more effective on people with fair skin tones, as those with darker skin tones may experience reduced results due to increased pigment in the skin. It’s best to talk to a specialist before deciding if laser treatments are right for you and your particular type of hair so you can make an informed decision.
The result is long-lasting hair reduction in the treatment area, though it often requires multiple sessions to achieve desired results. Laser hair removal works best on people with light skin and dark, coarse hair, as these types of hair absorb more laser energy. While it can be an effective way to reduce or eliminate unwanted body hair, it cannot permanently remove all types of hair or prevent future growth entirely.

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.

No, grey hair has no melanin. Pheomelanin found in red and blonde hair is poorly absorbed by laser.
