The laser is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to the exact parameters to disable the hair follicles. When laser light is pulsed on the skin for a fraction of a second, it generates a process called photothermolysis. It will coagulate the element through light. Laser light is absorbed the melanin in the hair and transmitted down the hair root, thereby destroying the hair when it reaches the bulb.
Most people will experience a slight sting, very much like a rubber band being flicked gently on the skin. Upper lip, ankles, bikini area, neck, shinbone tend to be more sensitive.
Topical anesthetic such as EMLA can be applied 1 to 1 ½ hours prior to treatment. This cream is rubbed on the area to be treated and than covered by a plastic wrap to retain effectiveness.
For biological, hereditary and hormonal reasons, it is realistic to say there cannot be a set number of treatments for the client. Some clients will respond faster to the treatment than others. The percentage of re-growth will also vary. The laser can only dormant hair that is currently in the anagen stage. Multiple treatments are necessary at approximately 4-8 week intervals. Erythema or follicular edema may be seen 24-48 hours after treatment.
