Laser hair removal is one of the treatment to remove the unwanted hairs from our body. But do you know how does laser hair removal work? You should know the principal of the laser technology, to understand the function of the machine. We at HairMD clinic will understand how it works. Do read this blog until the end to understand the process.
Laser Hair Removal provides smooth and hairless skin with lasting effects. It achieves this by using a cosmetic laser that fires a concentrated beam of light directed at the pigment in your hair follicles. By killing the follicle at its root and preventing it from growing back. The colour pigment in our skin and hair follicles is called melanin. Not only does it give colour, but it also absorbs radiation. Maybe it is dangerous UV radiation from the sun or the radiation emitted from a tiny cosmetic laser.
The principle works on referred to as ‘selective photo thermolysis. The settings of the laser are adjusted to both your skin and hair colour so that the wavelength of the light emitted from the laser beam matches that of the pigment in your hair. That is why the treatment works best on those with light skin (low melanin) and dark hair (higher melanin). The melanin in the hair drawing the radiation away from the skin.
You need to follow some procedure rules before starting with laser hair removal treatment. Let’s discuss what are the rules.

Hair grows in different stages: Anagen(active stage), catagen(transitional) and telogen(resting stage). The laser hair removal treatment only treats the hair growing in the active stage. At any given time, the hair on your body is growing in different stages, so there will be some overlap in the hair that will be treated by the laser. That’s why the part of your body that you wish to make hair-free needs to be lasered several times over the course of several months to be able to target every unwanted hair in its active stage.
The number of sessions required to depend on several factors, which include:
On average, 6-8 sessions are required, four to six weeks apart. This time frame allows the dead hair shafts to fall out on their own.
