How is permanent hair removal achieved with laser treatments?
Laser hair removal treatments are the most popular and effective method for permanently removing unwanted hair. Typically permanent results are achieved after 5-12 laser hair removal sessions, this is influenced by the amount of hair, hair colour and skin type of the guest.
Dark hair on lighter skin is easiest to treat as it creates the greatest contrast (a laser works by targeting the pigment melanin. Dark hair has more melanin and thus responds better to treatments. Patients with lighter hair can still achieve results, they just generally require more treatments.
Our hair grows in 3 phases and a laser can only affect the current growing hair follicles. This is why multiple sessions are needed to damage the hair in all phases of growth.
