How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Fotona’s ND:Yag laser effectively targets the melanin (pigment cells) in the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the energy until the follicle is destroyed, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. These laser treatment sessions are then repeated (on average) 7-12 times, at 4-8 week intervals, to target the attached hairs at each growth cycle (the Anagen hair growth phase), until most of the hair follicles have been destroyed.
After several treatments, patients can expect a significant reduction (80-95%) in the thickness and amount of hair. Any hair that is left is typically lighter colored and fine. The hair that was beneath the surface of the skin no longer has a follicle and your body will eject it over the next 2-3 weeks after the treatment. It may look like growing hair, but simply exfoliate or continue shaving until the dead hair has all fallen out.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
You must shower or bath and shave thoroughly within 24 hours prior to your laser treatment. The treatment will be most effective on clean, untanned skin with NO hair growth above the surface. Do not wax, pluck or use hair removal creams within four weeks prior to the appointment, as the hairs have to be attached to the follicle in order for the treatment to work. The technician will use cold packs and a Cryo air cooling machine to make the procedure more comfortable. You will feel a warm, prickly feeling as the laser delivers the energy into the hair follicles. This sensation is usually very tolerable. Afterward, your skin may look slightly red and have small bumps where the follicles are, which is completely normal. Many clients have no noticeable effects afterward. The redness and bumps will fade over the next few hours. Cold packs and an over-the-counter Cortisone cream can help as well if needed. Avoid hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, etc. for 24 hours post-treatment until the redness and bumps have diminished.
The hair that was beneath the surface of the skin no longer has a follicle and your body will eject it approx. 2-3 weeks after the treatment. It may look like growing hair, but simply exfoliate or continue shaving until the dead hair has all fallen out.
