Laser hair removal began 10 years ago, but hair removal laser technology has really progressed in the last five years.
Yes. The laser parameters were carefully defined to inhibit regrowth by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and matching the laser light and pulse duration to the follicle size, depth and location to safely and effectively remove hair.
Around 3-10 days after treatment hairs will begin to surface. Most of these hairs were treated and are falling out, it is not regrowth. The hair follicles need to purge the hairs that remained under the skin. Please refrain from waxing, plucking, or bleaching between treatments (shaving is okay).
The light energy passes harmlessly through the skin, but is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and hair shaft. By absorbing this laser energy, the hair follicles are disabled, impairing their ability to grow. The laser is effective on hair follicles in the active growth phase (anagen).
