What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is a technique that uses beams of highly concentrated light to penetrate the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigment in the follicles and destroys the hair within. Laser Hair Removal is among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Lasering does not work well on light-colored hair, red hair, grey hair, white hair as well as fine hair of any color, such as vellus.
Lasers treat hair follicles best when they are in their active stage of growth. Because hair has three phases of development which are anagen (the growing phase), catagen (the resting phase) and telogen (the shedding phase), not all hairs are growing simultaneously. Only the active phase has hair follicle that is required for destruction of stem cells of the follicles and thus permanent hair removal of the treated hair. As a result, multiple treatments are needed to achieve the highest levels of permanent hair removal.
