What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal uses pulses of laser energy to disrupt hair follicles to stop hair from returning. Over the course of several treatments, this can eliminate almost all hair follicles, which will never grow back. At each treatment, new hair follicles will be targeted until you see the results you want.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal at Juvanew Medspa uses an advanced long-pulse Nd:YAG laser. This laser penetrates deep into the skin and affects the hair follicles where hair grows. By targeting the pigment inside the hair follicles, this laser can precisely disrupt the growth of hair follicles without damaging the skin.
Hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. The laser hair removal treatment can only target hair follicles in the growing phase. When you return for your next treatment, some of the resting cells will now be growing. You will need between two and six treatments, timed to the cycle of your hair growth.
How To Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Can preparing before your laser hair removal appointment make a difference? It can, but these preparations need to be followed for several weeks.
Avoid The Sun
Not only will sun exposure make your skin more sensitive, but it can also cause you to tan, which will make treatment less effective.
Products to produce an artificial tan avoid exposure to UV rays, but the paler your skin, the better the laser will work on you.
Do Not Pluck or Wax
These methods remove the entire hair from the follicle, which interrupts the growth cycle and might mean you do not have much hair to remove. You can shave since that leaves the hair intact under the skin and the follicle still active.
Medications like aspirin can act as blood thinners. If your doctor instructs you not to take these in the days before the procedure, make sure to follow the instructions.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
After you complete your entire set of treatments, you should remain hair-free for up to two years. At that point, you will still have almost no hair regrowth, but a maintenance treatment will help eliminate any traces of hair that have emerged. Hair that has been removed will not come back, but some hair follicles may have been in their resting phase throughout the treatments.
