How does it work?
Laser hair removal is a process that helps to reduce hair growth and increase the manageability of excess hair in the long term. It is a way of permanently reducing unwanted hair on the body.
Laser hair removal involves the use of a laser or light energy source that targets and selectively heats the hair follicle. The laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle where it is converted to heat energy that destroys the hair follicle and prevents future growth. Hair has a high amount of melanin and therefore attracts heat more than the surrounding skin. Resultingly, the skin in the area is unaffected by the laser treatment. Laser hair removal specifically targets hair at the follicle, making it a precise and effective means of removing hair.
Laser hair removal can be used for:
- Hirsutism (excessive hair) from hormonal imbalance
- Any unwanted hair
- Facial hair
- Body hair
- Back hair
- Bikini line
How quickly will I see results? Laser hair removal Melbourne – ENRICH Clinic
Laser hair removal requires between six to ten sessions, as the hair growth cycle needs to be found and treated for each follicle. As each hair grows, it is lasered and the hair falls out. This process is repeated until very little or no more hair remains in the area. These treatments are best performed over winter when the skin is not tanned and exposure to the sun is less likely. The laser works best when the contrast between hair and skin is higher.
Reduction in ingrown hairs
Laser hair removal can reduce and improve painful and unsightly ingrown hairs.
