are Laser Hair Removal Systems and How Do they Work?
The lasers on
the market today come in all shapes and sizes. Different
lasers use different wavelengths of light; some utilize a
cooling device and some do not. All laser systems emit a
gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the
hair follicle where it is absorbed by the hair. The laser
energy is then transformed into heat which disables the
follicle. Today, individuals with white or dark/tan skin
can utilize lasers to remove their unwanted hair with
positive results. Lasers that utilize a cooling device
will help provide the patient with increased comfort and
protection by cooling the upper layers of skin. This
cooling selectivity helps to protect the skin while
effectively treating the unwanted hair.
Tech uses a high tech Dualis
Sp Laser with dual
laser elements Nd: YAG and Er: YAG. They also use the
highly efficient Zimmer Medizine System to comfortably
cool the skin. For more information click here
long will the procedure take
The length of the procedure depends on the
area being treated. An entire back can be done in 1 to 1
1/2 hours; underarms can be done in 1-2 minutes and an
upper lip in less than 10 seconds. These are just a few
examples. Here is a comparison of time between individual
laser hair removal and electrolysis procedures:
Every individual will need at least 3-6
laser treatments, but some might need up to 8 in order to
maximize results. Skin tone, hair coloring and coarseness
of hair are all contributing factors to how many
treatments will be needed.
Yes, the procedure is completely safe.
After the procedure, patients may experience slight pink
or red skin in the treated area. The color will most
likely fade within a few minutes to a few hours, and in
rare cases, a few days. When cold packs are used, the skin
will return to normal much more quickly. The lasers
utilize energy wavelengths of light that pass directly
through the skin into the hair follicles. Lasers that do
not pass through the skin leave residuals. For example,
X-rays taken at the hospital leave a residual in the body.
If too many are taken in a certain time period, the
residuals can become a health risk. The lasers used for
laser hair removal are passive, they leave no residuals;
therefore, they are completely safe.
does it feel like?
The feel of
the laser on the skin has been described in many different
ways. Some say it feels like a pinch on the skin and
others say it feels cool or it feels like a mild rubber
band snap. For those who feel discomfort, most clinics do
provide mild anesthetics.
can the laser permanently remove hair?
anywhere that you have unwanted hair, it can be safely
removed, see list below.
