Laser Hair Removal

Tucson Laser Hair Removal

During treatment, the laser emits a pulse, which travels through the skin and is attracted to the darkness of the hair. The laser then heats up the hair’s shaft and root, destroying it. Because the follicle is eliminated, it is unable to re-grow hair.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

When the hair is actively growing each individual hair goes through three main cycles, which are Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. Anagen is considered the growing stage, this is when the root of the hair is the largest, has an abundance of melanin, and is attached to the root. It is only during this stage that the hair is able to be targeted by lasers.

Melanin, or dark pigment is the amount of color present in the hair. Because laser light is absorbed better by dark objects, removal of dark hair is much more effective than for lighter hair. The more contrast the skin has with the hair, such as light skin with dark hair, the more effective the treatment will be.

Each hair is different and has varying amounts of melanin, which will also influence the effectiveness of laser treatments

How can Laser Hair Removal help me?

Each person responds differently to laser hair removal. Some may require more treatments than others. Laser hair removal can’t eliminate hair completely. If some hair does grow back, it’s usually thinner and finer than before the treatment.
