How it works…
Laser Hair Removal targets the pigment in the hair follicle. Heat is absorbed and destroys the cells lining the hair follicle, specifically around the bulb, bulge and vascular supply. Laser works best on darker hair.
How to prepare…
Any area being treated should be clean shaven approximately 24 hours prior. No plucking, waxing or tweezing for 6 weeks prior to and after treatment.
What do I need to know?
Your Laser Hair Removal results are often determined by 3 things.
- Treatment Intervals
- Operator Efficiency
It’s really important for your clinician to understand the stages of hair growth. There are 3 stages of hair growth, and for effective Laser Hair Removal, we need to treat when the hair is at it’s most vulnerable. The Anagen Stage.
The Anagen Stage will vary depending on the location of your body…
Facial/Axilla/Bikini: 4 – 6 Weeks
Trunk: 6 – 8 Weeks
Arms / Legs: 8 – 12 weeks
Your clinician will help determine the best time between treatments and the most effective parameters for your hair and skin type in order to get you the most efficient results in the least possible treatments. Saving you both time, and money.
There are hormonal conditions that can continue to stimulate hair growth in an individual. High levels of testosterone & poly-cystic ovaries are just a couple of examples where excessive hair growth can be a constant concern. Laser Hair Removal can be a great way to help regulate the abundance of hair in some of these circumstances. Chat to your clinician if you know you have a hormonal condition and they can help to tailor a treatment plan for you.
