How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Envy laser hair removal on the chin | True Balance Longevity Med SpaLaser hair removal works by targeting the root of your unwanted hair through a series of treatments. By precisely directing thermal energy to your hair, the follicle’s production cells are destroyed, preventing further growth. This procedure is absolutely safe and does not damage the surrounding areas of skin. In order to ensure successful and long-lasting results, several laser hair removal treatments must be performed throughout the three distinct hair growing cycles:

  • Anagen: The active growth cycle
  • Catagen: The dormant cycle
  • Telogen: The shedding or fall-out cycle

Laser hair removal is most effective during the active growth cycle. Since your hair is constantly at different growth cycles, it is crucial that the procedure be repeated to capture hair when it is in the ideal growth phase.

For best results, we recommend avoiding tanning and self-toners 14 days prior to treatment. Hair must be dark blonde to black and in the skin to be treated. No waxing, plucking or electrolysis should be done for at least four weeks before the procedure.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular, safe and effective aesthetic treatments available today. It completely eliminates the mess, discomfort and inconvenience of waxing, tweezing or using harsh chemicals to remove unsightly hair that grows darker and more visible with age. Laser hair removal is one of the most widely-performed aesthetic procedures in the country because of its effectiveness in removing unwanted hair from almost any part of your body. The benefits of this state-of-the-art treatment include:

  • Long-lasting results: Like many patients, you may enjoy nearly-permanent hair reduction after a series of four to eight treatments. Once a follicle has been treated successfully, it will never grow back. However, some patients experience a regrowth of fine hairs within years after completing treatments.
  • Versatility: Although legs and bikini areas are popular target areas, laser hair removal is effective on almost any part of the body for both men and women.
  • Speed: The specialized lasers used for hair removal take only a fraction of a second to treat multiple follicles at once. This means that larger areas such as the back or legs can often be treated in less than an hour and unwanted hair above your lip can typically be treated in only a couple of minutes.
  • Precision: Because of its use of highly-concentrated light, the laser can precisely target coarse, dark hairs without damaging the surrounding skin.
  • Convenience: Not only does laser hair removal put an end to the discomfort and embarrassment of unsightly and ingrown hairs, the treatment saves you time in your everyday routine.

Following your treatment session, you may notice some swelling and redness. This is a positive sign that means your follicles are responding to the procedure. You may experience some hair shedding immediately after treatment and more hair will continue to diminish over the next few weeks.

You will be provided with detailed skin care instructions following your procedure. For example, you should try to avoid exposure to the sun for a certain length of time.
