How does Laser Hair reduction work?
The laser hair reduction technology makes uses of an invisible light beam and the constant heat generated to penetrate the skin and removes the hair follicle from its root without harming the skin surface. Laser light beams are absorbed by the dark colour (melanin) of the hair and works on the hair roots(follicles),without harming the surrounding skin. This reduces further hair growth. The procedure is usually done over a number of sessions.
How many sessions are required?
Multiple sessions are recommended for an effective hair reduction. Normally six sessions are recommended, each at a gap of 4-6 weeks followed by maintenance sessions. The number of sessions and results vary from person to person.
Since hair follicles grow and rest in a cycle, only growing hair are affected in a single session. Multiple sessions, therefore, ensure best results.
