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) 6-12 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 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.

Have you already paid hundreds or even thousands of dollars towards hair removal to have everything grow back?  Are you skeptical that hair removal actually works?  We hear this concern on a regular basis in our consultations and would like to explain a few reasons why this may have happened.

There are two different technologies for hair removal, laser and IPL, if you’ve had IPL treatments for permanent hair reduction, chances are you are a firm believer that hair removal does not work ?

IPL energy (Intense Pulse Light) is produced by a strong light bulb which is intended to treat numerous skin conditions.  It is very effective for treating pigmentation, acne and vascular issues but is not effective at permanently destroying hair follicles.  Once an IPL pulse is delivered to the skin it widely disperses spreading the heat to it’s different targets.  If the pulse finds a hair follicle it will certainly deliver enough heat to temporarily affect the hair but it’s not enough to permanently destroy the follicle.   

Laser Hair Removal is VERY effective if you have a new, well maintained, high-quality laser.  Laser is very specific in its target, once the pulse is delivered a concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair follicle, the pigment in the hair absorbs the heat until the follicle is destroyed permanently.  That is why it is so important to have a new, well-maintained laser, you need the full power of the laser to affect the hair.

Another factor that could be playing into poor results is hair color.   The laser is attracted to the pigmentation in the hair, the darker and thicker the hair the more heat the follicle will absorb permanently destroying it.  If you have light blond or white/grey hair the lack of pigmentation makes it hard for the laser to absorb into, not giving enough heat to destroy the follicle. 

Skin color also matters because laser targets pigment darker skin tones could end up absorbing some of the heat into the skin that is needed to target the hair follicle.  That is why IPL is VERY dangerous to use on skin types 4, 5 & 6.  It is a superficial disbursement of heat that the skin will absorb resulting in burns and hyperpigmentation.  Some diode lasers that are very popular for hair removal will also be attracted to the pigment in the skin in darker skin types rather than the hair.  In these circumstances, lower heat is used to prevent burns which is usually not enough to permanently destroy hair follicles. 

Unlike other wavelengths the Fotona ND:Yag laser can saeffectivelyfectively treat all skin types (1-6).  This new patented laser technology uses a method that no other laser on the market can perform!  The laser uses a fractionated beam that slowly delivers heat to each hair follicle over 4 passes allowing the hair to absorb more energy.  This technology makes treatments comfortable for clients, reduces hair by 10-25% per session and is extremely fast.
