Hair removal laser works by emitting a pulse of light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The hair follicle is heated which causes damage to the shaft and bulb and impedes its ability to regrow.
For effective hair removal laser, between 6-12 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart are required. This is because the hairs that respond to the laser must be in the early growth stage called anagen and not all hairs are in this stage at one time. A maintenance session may be required 3-6 monthly if dormant hairs grow.
Blonde, grey, red, and white hairs do not respond to laser hair reduction. Certain medications may also be mean the client can’t have the reduction
