Understanding laser treatment
The laser is well-absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair's regrowth.
A special contact-cooling hand piece protects and cools the upper layer of skin before, during and after each pulse, while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The combination of this aggressive skin cooling and other key laser parameters allows safe and effective treatment of all skin types.
The length of a laser session may be a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. Because the laser tends to treat hair follicles that are in an active growth phase, more than one treatment may be required to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter this growth phase.
Laser treatment itself may cause a slight tingling sensation. However, most patients return to normal activity right away. The appearance of the treated area immediately after a laser session will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of treatment and skin type.
