How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser treatment for hair removal works by damaging the follicle, where the hair grows. The pigment of the hair absorbs the light of the laser and sends it into the follicle by traveling down the shaft and into the root. Once there, the laser light causes damage to the root of the hair and makes it fall out. It also inhibits new hair growth in the future by damaging the follicle.
Hair doesn’t fall out immediately, though. It takes about 2-3 weeks for the hair to start to fall out. So patients may continue to see hair growth for a few weeks after their treatment, but then shedding will take place.
Hair growth happens in three stages:
Active growth (anagen)
Our laser targets hair in the anagen phase, when it is actively growing. That’s why patients will need several treatments to achieve their laser hair removal goals. Each treatment will target new hairs that are in or entering the anagen phase.
Distill Laser Clinic uses cutting-edge GentleMAX laser. This is a dual-wavelength laser, combining a 755 nm Alexandrite laser with a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser. The combined power of these lasers means more effective hair removal treatments for our patients. The laser is safe for all skin types, too, giving more people access to laser hair removal options than ever before.
We also use a Dynamic Cooling Device™ to make the treatment more comfortable for patients. This device prepares the skin for treatment by temporarily cooling it right before the laser pulse. This can help eliminate some discomfort patients may experience, especially on their first visit.
