When people face ongoing processes that can be a lot of stress and anxiety. Understanding the process of exactly how laser hair removal is performed is the key to help manage stress and anxiety before and during the procedure.
Laser hair removal is a popular hair removal treatment since 1997 and has become more efficient (and popular) in recent years. It is safe, effective, and more permanent than other hair removal options like waxing, hair removal or electrolysis.
However, laser hair removal still does not work for people with fine hair (including gray and blonde), and people with dark hair and dark skin should use a specific type of laser to see positive results.
Specific lasers used in hair removal special emitting a light in a wavelength that is specific to the melanin of the hair and the follicle. Melanin is what gives color to your hair and skin. The laser beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicles reside.
This is why candidates with light skin and dark hair are often the most successful. If the skin tone and hair color are too similar, lasers are unable to differentiate between the skin and hair. A “long-wave laser” specific is ideal for hair, candidates for dark skin.
The laser damages the follicle at a point beyond repair, and hair no longer grows at this location. Once the follicle is gone, the skin begins to close and create a smooth surface on the skin.
Why do you need more than one treatment
While the laser is exhaustive, laser hair removal only works on hair that is being actively developed. At one point, a certain percentage of the hairs of his body is in what is called the “resting phase”. The laser does not remove hair effectively, so multiple treatments (mean 6.4) are required to remove all the hair complete the target area.
Some areas of the body taken at better than others, so the number of treatments may flash, depending on your treatment area treatment. Is important to note, however, that a single treatment will not be effective to remove any hair treatment area. Most patients will need retouching 1-3 times a year for maintenance after the initial series.
Laser hair removal is painful
Most lasers are using a system that emits a jet of cold air, followed immediately by the laser pulse, and then another blast of cold air. This cold air numbs the area of the laser pulse. The level of discomfort depends largely on the level of pain tolerance of the individual, but most laser hair removal on people equate the inconvenience of a hint of light or a rubber band snapping the skin. This discomfort is mild and goes away after 2-3 seconds. During a visit to a clinic, it is important to ask what type of laser used and the expected level of disturbance to these specific lasers.
Is dangerous process
Each state has its own set of guidelines and doctors to help ensure the security of any laser hair removal person undergoing procedures. Assuming that you are receiving treatment at a reputable clinic with a team of trained professionals running the appropriate examinations and health history, and not, laser hair removal is not at all dangerous. Each individual treatment subject must wear safety glasses to protect against lasers (which should provide the clinic), and clinic should explain the entire process before it starts.
Who is eligible
Because the laser targeted specific pigments in the skin, the only people who are not eligible are those with blond or gray hair that lack pigment. Besides this, you can be disqualified from laser hair removal because she is pregnant, or because you’re not old enough to receive the procedure (which depends on the specific rules of each clinic). With the exception of those listed and other medical problems, anyone is eligible for laser hair removal.
The process is ongoing
Yes, once the follicle is damaged beyond repair, the process of hair removal is permanent. These follicles will stop and regrow hair stop growing. It is important to note that not leave a hole in the skin. Once damaged skin follicle continue close (as healing a cut) and the skin around the area is closed, leaving a smooth surface where once grew hair. Once this process is complete, the hair will never grow in this new field.
