How Laser Hair Removal Works
The light from the laser targets pigmentation and travels down the shaft of hair into the follicle, destroying the hair and killing the follicle, preventing regrowth in that area. This effective treatment can provide results for an extended period of time and sometimes permanently.
Who is a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal
Because the laser targets pigmentation, people with darker skin have, in the past, avoided this treatment because it can cause serious burn issues. However, the lasers currently being used have been refined now that people with all skin tones are safe to have laser hair removal treatments performed with no problems.
People who have a tan are advised to let the tan fade before treatment is performed. It is also prefered to receive treatment during the winter as so not to exposed the vulnerable skin to the sun as it is more susceptible to burning.
A common misconception with hair removal is that one treatment is all that is needed when actually many more treatments are needed to hit each follicle in its active growth cycle. Each patient is different and requires a different number of treatments.
