Procedure of laser epilation

The method of laser hair removal is that the hair removal occurs through the selective action of laser energy to the hair follicle pigment (melanin). Due to this occurs the damage of follicle bulb, which leads to the cessation of hair growth.

The number of procedures is individual and depends on the type and intensity of hair growth, skin phototype, epilation area and the expected patient results (often allowed a certain amount of residual thin hair).The results are better than darker hair and lighter skin. The main reason for the need to repeat the procedure consists in the fact that the hair in its development goes through three main stages.

There are three stages of follicle development: anagen (the period of growth), catagen (transition from one stage to another) and telogen (rest period). Presumably, the hair cycle begins with catagen. At this stage of atrophy of the hair papilla begins, and as a consequence, cell division stops and the hair follicles, they undergo keratinization. After catagen begins short telogen phase. Most of the fallen hairs are telogen. The stage goes into telogen anagen stage, which is divided into six periods of development. After completion of anagen hair begins a new cycle. Normally healthy person has 80-90% of hairs in anagen phase, 10-15% in the telogen phase and 1-2% in catagen stage.

Actually, on the surface at the same time is only about a third of real hair. That is why, to get rid of all the hair in a selected area, the procedure must be repeated several times. In order to achieve satisfactory results, on average, from 6 to 8 sessions. For patients with a very strong hair growth exceeds the number of sessions 8. The intervals between sessions should not be too short (4 – 6 weeks; with absence of hair intervals may be longer) to allow the greatest number of follicles to pass into the anagen phase.
