How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a simple, safe and reliable procedure. Laser beam targets the pigment in hair follicle, it transforms into heat that is absorbed by the pigment in hair and destroys the cells lining, the hair follicle specifically around the bulb, bulge and vascular supply. Because of the laser’s precision, the skin and surrounding area are left untouched.
What Are The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
With laser hair removal, just a few treatments can lead to permanent hair reduction, hair free smoother softer and glowing skin.
For best results multiple treatments are needed.
- For most areas 4-6 treatments are necessary to achieve desired hair clearance.
- One may need more or less than 6 treatments depending on hair type, previous methods of hair removal, and skin color.
- Efficacy of treatment may vary from patient to another.
The procedure is relatively fast and effective. You should experience redness and light swelling depending on the sensitivity of their skin. If you experience these symptoms, don’t worry—they’re completely normal and temporary. Some patients will experience a hive like response, although lighter hair may not respond as significantly. If your skin feel irritated after a laser hair removal treatment, apply a topical cortisone cream or a cool compress to the area. Avoid exercise, hot tubs and hot baths for the first 24 hours after a treatment. Avoid excessive sun exposure for two weeks after the treatment, and always apply sunscreen before sun exposure.
- Cool Compresses
- Aloe vera
- Topical Cortisone cream
- Sun block of 30+ SPF
Multiple treatments are required to achieve full hair removal. This is because hair grows in three stages
Anagen Phase: This is the hair’s growth stage. Hair is its thickest and darkest at this point so laser treatments are most effective.
Catagen Phase: This is the transitional stage of hair growth in which hair begins to loosen from its follicle.
Telogen Phase: This is the shedding stage of hair growth in which hair falls out to make room for new growth.
Therefore; Only in the growing phase does the hair contain enough pigment to absorb sufficient energy to disable the hair follicle. When hair is in the dormant phase, it has little or no pigment, and it cannot absorb the laser light. When you come in to MC Laser Clinic for your treatment, we disable all of the hair follicles with actively growing hair in the treatment area. A few weeks later, some of your dormant hairs will have moved into the actively growing stage, and you will come in for a treatment to disable those. As this cycle gets repeated, you experience increasing reduction of hair.
The cost of laser hair removal varies depending on the size, complexity and other factors of the area treated. Our prices for a single area range from as little as $59 to as much as $600. MC Laser Clinic & Hair Salon provides cost-effective packages and “combo” pricing to help you to get to your goal of being hair-free as soon as possible.
Before beginning a laser hair removal treatment, laser technician at MC Laser Clinic & Hair Salon will consult with you to determine the best course of action based on your hair and skin tone evaluation, complete a medical history questionnaire, perform a patch test and determine the fee structure according to your needs.
After 4-6 treatments, most people experience permanent hair reduction in the targeted areas. Your age, skin tone, hair colour and targeted area are all considered when determining the length of time required to see permanent effects. Different areas have different density percentages of hair per square inch in the Anagen Phase (growing phase) at any given time:
– Face, Axilla, Bikini have approximately 20-35%
– Trunk and Extremities have approximately 10-20%
Maintenance treatments are required to maintain results.
