Laser hair removal works by aiming a highly concentrated light beam at the areas with unwanted hair. The laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, destroying the bulb from future growth. Although you will see dramatic results after the first session, it takes multiple sessions to permanently remove all the unwanted hair. This is because hair grows in cycles, so multiple sessions are needed to destroy the hair follicles in all growth phases. The number of sessions also depends on how thick or coarse the hair is and the area of the body being treated.
Laser hair removal is a great alternative to shaving and waxing because of the long-term results. Hair grows back within a day or two after shaving, and a few weeks after waxing. There are many types of lasers designed for hair removal, and the consensus is that hair does not grow back for a long time after the laser treatments, if at all. If the hair does grow back there is generally much less of it, and it is lighter in color. Depending on the type of laser used and on each individual case, permeant hair removal is quite attainable.
Our Approach to Laser Hair Removal
We are proud to offer the state-of-the-art hair removal laser from Lumenis, the LightSheer Infinity! The high-speed LightSheer Infinity is far superior to many other types of lasers because it reduces treatment time by up to 75% and can safely treat all skin types. The vacuum-assist technology allows us to target large areas and improves the penetration of the laser, which allows for greater energy absorption. It is specifically designed to minimize pain during the treatment and has enhanced safety features. This versatile laser has dual heads, the LightSheer ET for targeting smaller areas and the LightSheer HS, which has the largest spot size of any diode. This top-of-the-line laser removes hair quickly and comfortably; it can easily treat the back and legs in about 15-20 minutes! Not many lasers have this capability.
The number of treatments needed depends on several factors, including the hair growth cycle, the area of the body being treated, and the individual hair type.
