Laser Hair Removal
How does laser hair removal work? Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce long-term hair reduction. This is accomplished by producing heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle, which in turn produces inflammation. This inflammation sends a signal to the hair follicle to go into the resting (telogen) phase.
How Many Treaments Will I Need?
Normally, a series of three to five treatments is administered at four-to eight-week intervals depending upon the location of the hair. After a single treatment, the hair in a given area is usually reduced in amount and thickness. To keep an area completely devoid of hair, maintenance treatments may be required.
Below are examples of laser hair removal. The first example is back laser hair removal on an adult male with dense back hair. The results at right can be achieved after three treatments. Please note that results vary per person and may require additional treatments.
