Laser Hair Removal – Teddys Barber Shop (Near Coburg/Essendon/Brunswick)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The hair follicle is destroyed after several treatments, at that stage laser hair removal is permanent
Laser hair removal uses light to target the pigment in individual hairs with the heat from the laser destroying the hair follicle so hair stops growing from it. Hair growth cycle involves rest, shedding and growth periods. Recently removed hair in a rest phase will not be visible to the technician or laser, this is why you need to wait between treatments. For most clients, laser hair removal requires several treatments over the course of 2 to 3 months.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
Hair removal from a destroyed hair follicle is permanent. Whether hair grows back depends on numerous factors, including the type of hair that regrows and the skill of the person removing the hair. Most find when hair regrows, it is lighter and less noticeable than it was before. This is because the laser may damage the hair follicle even when it fails to destroy it.
If a hair follicle is damaged but not destroyed, the hair will eventually regrow. It can be difficult to destroy every single hair follicle, so most people will see some hair regrowth. When hair regrows, it is possible to treat it again, so people who want to remove all the hair may need several treatments.
DOES SKIN OR HAIR COLOUR EFFECT LASER TREATMENT?
Laser Hair removal works best on clients with light complexions who have dark hair. This is because pigment contrast makes it easier for the laser to target the hair, travel into the follicle and destroy it preventing hair from growing back.
Conversely, people with dark skin or light hair may need more treatments than others
