HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK
Significant advances have been made over the past decade in the removal of unwanted hair. Many different lasers are currently available for hair removal, each with advantages and disadvantages. nearly all systems result in moderate discomfort, usually requiring topical anesthetic. Not ours! Our office has the fastest, most comfortable, and most effective diode laser available.
Hair follicles are in one of three stages:
The first stage is the anagen stage. This is when the hair grows. For hairs on the head, this stage can last for 2 to 6 years. For eyebrows or arms it can last only several weeks.
The second stage is the catagen stage, which is an in-between stage—between the first and final stage.
The final stage is telogen. This is the resting stage and the hair is shed.
Lasers only damage the hair follicles that are in the anagen (growth) stage. Therefore, not all follicles can be treated at any given treatment session with any of the systems listed below. Many can experience long term reduction in hair growth after several treatment sessions that can last several or many months. With some of the “permanent” hair removal systems, there is some permanent removal of hair with each treatment session for many patients.
WHAT TYPE OF LASERS ARE AVAILABLE?
There are probably a hundred laser systems available that work on several different technologies. It is hard to say if one is “best” for all, as there are advantages and disadvantages between the different technologies. Here are some of the systems that are used today:
Diode lasers have become very popular as nearly all skin types can be treated, it is extremely fast, and some machines can be nearly painless. Treatments can be extremely effective. Some argue that these lasers may be equally as effective as the Alexandrite laser.
The alexandrite laser is an extremely effective hair removal laser, but needs to be used with extreme caution in darker-skinned or tanned individuals. There is moderate discomfort with treatment and many patients prefer to be pre-treated with a topical anesthetic cream to make the procedure more tolerable. Some consider this laser to be the gold standard as far as effectiveness, but moderate discomfort, moderate speed, and higher complication risk when treating tanned skin make this laser a less desirable option for many patients.
The ruby laser is very effective for hair removal in those with light skin. Darker skinned patients are at risk for permanent discoloration and should not be treated. The ruby laser is an extremely effective laser system in targeting melanin, the pigment molecule in skin and hair that is the target for all laser hair removal systems. Like nearly all laser systems, there is discomfort with treatment and patients are often pre-treated with a topical anesthetic cream. Some studies have shown over 20% permanent hair reduction with a single treatment and over 30% with two treatments. Fewer ruby lasers are used today as it is slow and limited to white, non-tanned skin only, although it is extremely effective.
This laser works for very dark skin types. It is not as effective as other laser systems and many who own this machine will use it exclusively for those with dark skin and use a different laser for those with lighter skin color.
INTENSE PULSED LIGHT
Some systems utilize white light (intense pulsed light) that can result in permanent hair removal. By definition, pulsed light machines are not technically lasers as they use more than one color of light. Good results can be obtained, but darker-skinned or tanned individuals cannot be treated by most systems due to permanent lightening of the skin that can be unsightly. Treatments are fairly well tolerated for most machines and many systems are effective. White hairs do not respond to treatment and most intense pulsed light machines are not very effective for treating blonde hairs. This was one of the most common systems available, and now has been replaced largely by newer, more-effective, faster technology.
COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
HOW IS YOUR DIOLUX™ LASER BETTER THAN OTHER LASERS?
To put it simply, it is the fastest, virtually painless, does not require numbing cream, can be used on almost any skin type (color), works for light or dark colored hair, and is extremely effective. It allows for completely customizable treatment programs, in sharp contrast to many laser systems out there today. To be honest, you have to see it to believe it.
WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE?
Those with light skin color who have dark hair, but treatments are available for all skin types and even blonde hair.
WILL ALL OF THE HAIR BE GONE?
No matter which laser is used and no matter how many treatments are performed, most likely not. As not all the hair can be treated at any given time, some hair will likely remain even after several treatments. Most patients can have great results with minimal hair growth for some time, but with time, hair can return although usually significantly diminished and often much finer.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients can see slowed hair growth after one treatment. Most patients will see significant results after only 2-3 treatments, especially those with dark hairs and fair skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Typically most patients will have 5 – 7 treatments in the first year.
DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?
While most laser hair removal lasers are painful, our laser results in minimal discomfort. In fact, we do not recommend that our patients even use a topical anesthetic.
CAN I USE A NUMBING CREAM?
For most systems, yes. For our Diolux™ system, numbing cream is not necessary as the procedure is very well tolerated. In fact, we do not even recommend using it for our patients.
