How Does Laser Hair Removal Work
Laser hair removal works by using a concentrated beam of light/laser to then remove any unwanted hair you may have. This non-invasive treatment is extremely popular, being one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatments in the U.S. This is great news, especially for those who struggle with constantly dealing with their body hair.
The exact laser hair removal procedure starts with a medical professional cleaning the desired treatment area where you wish to have the laser hair removal done. Then, if the specialist believes the desired hair removal area may be extra sensitive, the specialist will apply some numbing gel to the area to reduce the potential for any pain or discomfort. And, before the procedure, everyone in the room will wear protective eyewear to prevent any eye damage that can be done by the laser during the laser hair removal session.
Then, during the procedure, the specialist will focus the beam of light/laser on the desired area you want hair to be removed. This light will specifically impact your hair follicles (the opening of the skin where a hair can grow) because the hair follicles will absorb the laser causing the hair to vaporize and thus be removed. The intensity of the laser will also damage the hair follicle itself, inhibiting the regrowth of new hair from forming.
As a result, the laser will also help delay further future hair growth. Therefore, after your laser hair removal session, you should expect the hair in the treated area to take much longer to grow back. This is a great relief, especially for those who feel they may need to constantly shave their legs or other areas of their body. However, laser hair removal often doesn’t permanently remove the hair. With that said, again it’s a great alternative and time saver instead of shaving, waxing, or tweezing any unwanted body hair.
After the laser hair removal procedure, the treated area will be sensitive. Therefore, it’s best to avoid sunlight, tanning beds, and apply a daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30 or higher. Doing this will ensure your skin remains protected as your skin will be again extra sensitive from the laser hair removal treatment.
Who Is Eligible For Laser Hair Removal
The majority of people looking to remove excess body hair are eligible for laser hair removal. However, certain individuals like pregnant women and certain skin types are not well-suited candidates for laser hair removal. With that being said, although many people can get laser hair removal, some people see more effective results than others.
The best people in terms of who receive the most effective results from laser hair removal are those with dark hair and light skin. This is because the pigmentation of the darker hair color attracts the laser. This makes darker hair easier to absorb the laser, and thus be removed fast and effectively.
Meanwhile, individuals with darker skin usually need to be treated with a special type of laser that is used to more easily detect the hair on the surface of the skin to then remove it effectively.
Likewise, those with lighter hair tend to have the least effective results in terms of seeing a substantial/ noticeable difference after the laser hair removal procedure. This is because the laser used in the session will have a more difficult time focusing on the non-pigmented (lighter) hair. And, unfortunately, because of this notion, laser hair removal will not give effective results for those with blonde, gray, or white hair because of this lack of pigmentation in the hair.
