How does laser hair removal work?
The laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to heat the melanin, in the skin area that causes hair growth, the follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. The heat then triggers inflammation in the hair follicle which cuases it to go into its resting phase. In this phase, the follicle will not produce hair.
Is it permanent?
The general perception is that laser hair removal is permanent. However, the FDA has defined laser hair removal as the long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regimen, which means that laser hair removal will permanently reduce the total number of body hairs, it will not result in a permanent removal of all hair.
What type of hair does it work on?
Laser hair removal is most effective on black coarse hair. Because of the absorption of photons of laser light, black or brown hair is most successful.
How many treatments will I need?
More treatments are needed initially to maximize the reduction in hair removal, typically 3-8 treatments. After the initial set of treatments, some longer term maintenance will likely be required. Your Refresh aesthetician will consult with you to develop the most effective laser treatment plan.
