How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

laser hair removal ocean njHair follicles serve a crucial function in maintaining healthy skin. Our goal is not to remove the actual hair follicle but to disable hair production or to make the hair finer and less visible and ultimately to reduce the appearance of hair.

The hair removal device delivers light energy to the surface of the skin. The light is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat which injures the stem cell in the bulb and bulge.

 

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Why are multiple treatments necessary?
Hair has three stages, which constitute a “hair cycle.” They are: growing, resting, and shedding. Only those hairs that are currently in the growing phase are “visible” to the laser. Consequently, multiple treatments are required. Most clients are happy with a 70 to 80% reduction in the amount of visible hair, typically achieved 6 to 12 months after their last session.*

How many treatments will I need?
Although the number of treatments necessary to achieve your desired result cannot be predicted precisely, the following are some helpful statistical averages:

  • For your face (lip, chin, and cheeks), underarms, and bikini line, four treatments are recommended.
  • Because only 10% of the hairs on your ears and the back of your neck are in the growing phase at any given time, these areas can require as many as ten treatments.
  • For most every other treatment area, we typically recommend six treatments.

How long will I have to wait between treatments?
The time between treatments is usually scheduled every six week to more consistently address the hairs that were untreated during the previous treatment, and to maximize the hair reduction that we can achieve with the next treatment. Please note that if you miss your scheduled appointment by two weeks or more, we will need to wait for twelve weeks from your last treatment to resume the treatment process.

How do I prepare for my treatments?
You should avoid any tanning for at least five days before and after your Laser Hair Removal treatment. You should also shave 1 to 2 days before your scheduled treatment; the most hair you should have during the treatment should be short stubble. Also, do not wax or pluck for a minimum of two weeks…four weeks is better. This is because the laser cannot see empty hair follicles!
