Most hair removal techniques such as shaving tweezing or waxing only provide temporary relief from unwanted hair. Laser hair removal offers treatments of large and small areas, for men and women, with long-lasting results.
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment -disabling a large number of hair follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s re-growth – but not long enough to damage the surrounding skin.
The absolute requirement is that the hair must be darker than the surrounding skin. Hair cannot be blonde, grey or white.
Hair follows a specific growth cycle. The length of each phase in this cycle varies depending on where the hair is located on the body. Everyone’s hair grows differently, depending on age, weight, diet, metabolism, hormones, ethnicity, medication, location of hair, thickness and resilience. The hair has 3 growth phases that are deemed so important that they have been given names.
