What you need to know about laser hair reduction

Is smooth skin, without the hassle of shaving, waxing, or tweezing something you’ve been looking for? Do you suffer from red bumps and painful ingrown hairs? Then laser hair reduction is right for you. This is performed by using a laser which passes beneath the skin to target each individual hair follicle. The heat from the laser damages the bulb and the buldge of the hair follicle making it unable to grow new hair. The hair that was in the follicle is naturally expelled and falls out within a few days. After the summer is a great time to get started on this process. Laser hair reduction protocol requires no sun exposure, to the area being treated, two weeks prior to the treatment and two week post treatment. Hair grows in cycles, your treatments are based off these cycles. Keeping with your personal laser hair protocol ensures the best result.

  • There are 3 phases to hair growth, anagen phase when the hair is actively growing and can be treated,  catagen phase is when the hair follicle is dormant and is not treatable, telogen phase where the hair is shedding and is not treatable.
