LASER HAIR REMOVAL BEFORE AND AFTER*

To understand how hair removal lasers work, it is helpful to understand a few things about the way hair grows. Hair grows in three distinct stages. When hair is in the anagen stage—the active growth phase–melanin (the dark pigment in the skin and hair) is being produced in the follicle. This melanin is an essential part of the hair removal process.

During treatment, a laser is calibrated specifically towards the color of the pigment being produced in the follicle. When applied to the treatment area, the laser safely passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin within the hair follicle.1 The thermal energy from the laser destroys the follicle. This disables the follicle from producing new hair.2

The hair removal laser is only effective on hair currently in the active (anagen) stage. However, only 30 percent of hairs are in that stage at any given time. Therefore, to address all the hair within a given treatment area, it is essential to perform several laser sessions, usually spaced one month apart. Hairs that are not in the anagen stage during the fist laser session will be in the anagen stage during the second or third session.

The exact number of treatments you may need depends on your body and the treatment area. Some areas of hair remain in the active stage longer than other areas of hair. Therefore, some areas require fewer treatments than others.
