Hair grows in stages. Hairs are successfully treated by laser in their active growth phase called anagen. There are two other stages of growth and although the hairs can be treated in these stages, they will have to be retreated to catch them in anagen. This is complicated, but a qualified laser technician will explain this process during your free consultation. The procedure involved a highly concentrated light that is transmitted into the skin. The light targets the pigment and melanin in the hair follicles. The hair absorbs the light, converting it to heat and causing thermal damage to the hair follicle. This is all done without any harm to the surrounding tissues. After the hair has been treated, the follicle is disable and the hair exfoliates in 5-30 days. The results are smooth, beautiful skin for you!
