Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal remains the #1 cosmetic laser treatment performed in the United States. Underarms, facial hair, bikini, legs, back and other body part areas are easily eliminated using the latest in diode laser hair reduction technologies. For permanent hair removal, the hair follicle’s bulb, bulge, and papilla must be destroyed using joules of light energy. IPL laser hair removal requires a target (melanin) to see the actual hair within the follicle so it is not as effective with blonde and white (gray) hair individuals. The number of treatments vary based upon the hair growth cycles of various body locations and is safe and comfortable to the patient.

The reason for multiple treatments is due to the target of the laser hair treatment being melanin, only actively growing hair contains melanin in the bulb and germinal matrix of the hair. The growth cycles for hair are Anagen (active growth), Telogen (no growth), and Cathagen (hair is ejected) stage of development. Laser hair removal only effectively treats hair in its Anagen Phase: multiple treatments are required.
