How Laser Hair Reduction Works
Repeated tweezing, shaving and waxing to remove unwanted hair becomes a hassle over time. If efforts to remove unwanted hair leave you with nicks, bumps or burns, Laser Hair Removal may be for you.
In the U.S., Laser Hair Removal is among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Happel Center’s treatment process makes the treatment virtually painless, while providing fast and permanent hair reduction to a wide variety of skin and hair types.
Lasers treat hair follicles best when they are in their active state of growth. Because hair has three phases of development, not all hairs are simultaneously growing.
Typically, multiple laser hair removal treatments are necessary for best results. The treatment produces minimal discomfort and you will be able to return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.
With laser, the energy is absorbed by melanin that is the pigment in the hair follicle. Laser light is attracted to dark objects (hair) that have a light background (skin) to get optimal results. For that reason, tanning around the time of your laser treatment is not recommended.
Once the laser treats an area with each pulse, the underlying hair follicles are disabled leading to hair loss over the selected body part. Dark hair absorbs more energy and is thus easier to treat. It is for that reason that red, blond, or gray hair is harder to treat.
Understanding Your Skin Type
Your skin type is determined mostly by your ethnicity and heredity, and can vary from person to person. When considering laser treatments, your skin type will come into play because not all lasers work on all skin types.
