How Does Laser Hair Removal Process in Tustin Work?
Laser hair removal works by delivering energy which gets absorbed by the melanin (pigment that gives skin and hair color) in the hair. This energy damages the hair follicle thereby inhibiting or delaying hair growth. Hair follicles constantly undergo three phases of growth which includes anagen (active growth), catagen (hair growth slows), and telogen (resting/shedding). The ideal time for laser hair removal is when hair is actively growing in the anagen phase as this is the point where it is most vulnerable to laser damage. It is important to note that each hair follicle may be in a different growth phase from others in the same area at any one time which is why multiple sessions (up to ten treatment sessions) of laser hair removal are necessary.
At Ageless MD, we use the Vikini laser system which operates using an 808-nm diode and comes equipped with a cooling sapphire tip for constant cooling and reducing discomfort during treatment. The 808-nm setting is an optimal wavelength that is safe and effective in all skin types based on the Fitzpatrick scale. The ideal skin and hair color combination that frequently receives the most effective results are those who are fair with dark hair.
