Laser hair removal uses high-powered laser light to target hair follicles, the tubular sacs where hair growth originates. The pigment that provides hair color absorbs the laser light, and the light transforms into heat.
The heat breaks the pigment into tiny pieces and damages the follicle walls. As a result, the hair follicle is essentially deactivated, ultimately preventing it from growing hair again.
Laser hair removal works on almost any area where you have unwanted hair. The most common treatment spots are:
Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center is widely known for using the latest leading-edge treatment approaches, and laser hair removal is no exception. The team employs state-of-the-art lasers to treat any area where you have unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal works on nearly any skin type and hair color. Laser treatment is generally most effective on dark hair due to its high melanin content, but it can treat lighter shades.
However, gray or white hair lacks melanin, so the laser doesn’t have pigment to target. Therefore, laser hair removal doesn’t treat gray or white hair, but other hair removal options like waxing and electrolysis can be effective.
Many people say laser hair removal feels like light snapping or popping against the skin, but it’s not painful. If you have sensitive skin, ask the team about topical anesthetic before treatment.
Your hair grows in cycles, and the laser can only target hair follicles in their active (growing) phase. Your hair follicles aren’t all in the growing phase at one time. A series of treatment sessions can address all the hair follicles as they start growing hair.
Generally, sessions are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. The total number of sessions needed varies depending on the size of the treatment area and the density of your hair.
