How Laser Hair Removal Works
The technology of laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis. Lasers cause localized damage by selectively heating the melanin in the targeted area (the follicle) that causes hair growth, while the skin remains unheated. This also causes the laser light to be absorbed by the follicle with much more speed and intensity.
Because of the selective absorption of laser light, only black or brown hair can be removed. Light colored or gray hairs are unaffected. In addition, people with darker skin-types cannot always safely be treated with conventional laser hair removal treatments because their darker skin melanin also attracts laser heat, which can result in minor burns or scarring.
Why Laser Hair Removal Requires Multiple Treatments
It is important to understand that hair grows in cyles. While hair follicle #1 is growing hair, follicle #2 beside it may be in a dormant 'resting' stage, while hair follicle #3 is shedding its hair. From one follicle to the next, whether it is growing, shedding or resting is entirely random. Therefore, multiple treatments (typically six to eight, spaced eight to twelve weeks apart) depending on the type of hair and skin color have been shown to provide long-term reduction of hair.
Complete hair removal is not always possible--no matter how successful the treatments are, you are likely to encounter 'straggler' hairs that managed to evade the laser’s heat by remaining in a longer resting phase. A 60-80% overall hair reduction is generally considered to be a successful hair reduction result.
