Hello Laser! Bye Bye Razor

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Permanent removal of unwanted hair gives the freedom to wear whatever you want, whenever you want. Most common areas to treat are: underarms, bikini, legs, upper lip and chin.

To permanently reduce the unwanted hair on the face or body, either a laser or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) light-based system can be used. Optimal selection of technologies and wavelengths depends on the client’s skin type, hair type, ethnicity, area being treated, and sun exposure.

How does laser hair removal work?

Lasers and IPL used in hair removal targets the melanin (color) in the hair follicle, damaging the follicle and removing the hair. Hair growth cycles through three phases: Anagen (growth) phase, Catagen (transition) phase, and Telogen (dead) phase. Hair that is in the Anagen (growth) phase is permanently removed with each treatment. However, not all the hair is in the Anagen phase at the same time. For example, on the legs, only 20-30% of hair is in the Anagen phase at any given time. Hair that is in the Catagen or Telogen phase will be treated by the laser but the hair won’t be permanently removed and will grow back. However, it can be removed permanently in subsequent treatments as the hair cycles into the Anagen phase. Therefore, several treatments are required, typically 6-8 treatments every 4-8 weeks.
