What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a process that helps to permanently reduce hair growth and increase the manageability of excess hair in the long-term. Laser energy is used to selectively target and permanently disrupt hair follicles whilst leaving the skin unaffected.
All details are discussed during initial consultation during which a patch test is carried out.
How does it work?
Laser hair removal works by using a laser to target and selectively heat the hair follicle. The laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle where it is converted to heat energy that can destroy the stem cell in the hair follicle and prevent its future growth. The skin also takes up part of the laser energy, but it has the ability to lose heat quicker than the hair follicle, and is left intact. Hair also has a larger amount of melanin than skin, therefore it attracts the laser energy more readily than skin. Therefore, as a rule, people with darker hair and lighter skin are easier to treat as there is a greater differential between the amount of melanin in the skin and hair. People with darker skin can still be treated at CHIC with a different wavelength that penetrates deeper within to prevent take up of the heat energy by the skin.
How many treatments do I need and how often?
Generally, around 6 sessions are required at 6 to 8 weekly intervals (depending on the area treated) in order to achieve maximal reduction in hair growth (90% or more). The number of treatments can vary from one person to another and is dependent on hair colour and thickness, type of skin and medical history, amongst others.
The reason why a number of treatments is required is that laser hair removal works best on the hairs that are in their anagen or active growth phase within the hair cycle. Therefore, in order to reduce the amount of hair growth, multiple treatments are required to capture more hair follicles in their anagen phase of growth. The interval between each session is decreased in areas such as the face which have a shorter hair cycle.
