How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal involves the use of a laser that releases light, which is taken in by the pigment (melanin) present in the hair. This light energy is transformed into heat, causing harm to the tube-shaped structures called hair follicles located within the skin.

These follicles are responsible for producing hair. This damage to the follicles hampers or postpones the growth of future hair. While laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for extended periods, it typically does not lead to permanent hair removal.

The process of laser hair removal requires multiple treatments initially to achieve hair removal, and subsequent maintenance treatments may also be necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is some stinging when the device dispenses energy into skin, but the sensation lasts only a few seconds. Treatment is generally well tolerated. Topical numbing cream can be applied to sensitive areas.

The providers at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic are well trained in use of the device and observe precautions recommended by the manufacturer. As with any medical procedure, there are risks. The doctor explains these during consultation.

Men tend to develop ingrowth from shaving. This can be especially problematic at the neck, for guys who wear dress shirts and ties. Laser treatment eliminates the need for daily shaving, allowing skin to return to normal.

Laser hair reduction works by inhibiting the ability of hair follicles to produce strands. Pigments in the hair root absorb energy from the laser, creating a thermal reaction. With modern laser instruments, most skin and hair colour combinations can be treated effectively and safely.
We cannot vouch for the veracity of before and after photos other than our own, but results can be dramatic. Generally, six to eight sessions, spaced about a month apart, are needed for optimal clearance.
