How do Lasers Work?

Laser hair removal is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures. The basic idea behind laser hair removal is to target hair follicles in their growth cycle, slowing future growth.

When you shine laser energy onto the skin, the dark pigment in the hair will absorb the light from the laser and be heated up. This heat will be conducted down and destroy the matrix cells.

When we do laser hair removal, new hair is less able to grow or can’t grow at all once the hair falls out.

After getting undergoing laser hair removal, patients can anticipate a smoother and clearer complexion.

Before laser removal treatment area must be shaved.

What Should I Know Before My Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Before your laser hair removal appointment, take a few important steps.

First, check with your practitioner that they have relevant training and know how to use a laser for your specific skin type.

Make sure that you tell about any moles or tattoos on your body. Many moles and tattoos are pigmented and can absorb laser energy. It can cause you problems with burn or hyperpigmentation.

Do not wax or tweeze your hair, but it's okay if you shave it. You should never wax while you are undergoing laser hair removal.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe? Who Should Avoid the Laser Hair Treatments?

In the hands of our specialists, laser hair removal is very safe.

Blond, red, or gray hair doesn't have enough melanin pigment to transmit sufficient laser energy to destroy the hair follicle.

Suppose you have a tan from sunbathing or self-tuning products. These pigments will absorb the laser energy and can cause hyperpigmentation and burns.

Suppose you are pregnant or breastfeeding because there aren't any studies on pregnant or breastfeeding women to be able to confirm that it's safe.

If you have psoriasis or keloid scars, your laser practitioner will want to weigh up the risks and the benefits before advising you if it is safe to do this procedure.

Does laser hair removal work on light-colored hair?

The laser attracts the pigments and works better on stronger, darker hair. Once the hair contains the pigments, the laser will attract to it. If you have blond or fine hair, advanced lasers can work with it. Still, it can take up to ten sessions on average and give you some results or not give any.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work With the Dark Skin Type?

Laser hair removal works best on people with pale skin and dark hair. It works because of the contrast between the hair and skin. With new advanced laser technology, it’s safe for darker skin tones to have laser hair removal. If we choose the suitable laser, the person operating it knows precisely what they’re doing.

With darker skin tones, you have more melanin in the skin. This means that when you shine a laser on the skin, the melanin in the hair follicle and the skin compete with the laser. Both will absorb the energy and will be heated.

Heating the skin is the last thing that you need. The best laser hair removal for darker skin types is ND YAG. This laser bypasses the melanin in the skin and targets the melanin deep in hair follicles. Using this laser, we can reduce the risk of causing problems with hyperpigmentation or burns.
