Frequently Asked Questions
akss laser systems : tend to use energy in the form of light to destroy hair follicles. Patients skin colour and the coarseness is considered and settings made . A cool sapphire crystal is placed over a cold gel that is applied on the skin, followed by a flash of high intensity, filtered light. The energy from the light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair which in turn are converted into heat which denatures the cells rendering them incapable of producing further hair growth. The heat also kills the hair roots but the hair remains in the skin and will fall out 1-3 weeks post treatment. Some hairs can even fall out at the time of treatment. The hair being treated should not be tweezed or waxed for 1 month prior to treatments.
Only hair that are in the active growth phase (anagen) are targeted each session. As a result hair will grow back in patches.
An average of eight treatments is recommended for maximum hair reduction. One can expect an average of 10- 20 percent hair reduction after the first treatment.
Each body part has a different hair growth cycle and the time of the growth cycle can vary from 4-8 weeks depending on the body site. The number of sessions one needs depends upon many factors including area of the body treated, skin colour, coarseness of the hair and any underlying health conditions.
There will be a permanent reduction in the amount of hair. It is important to understand exactly what permanent hair reduction means. It does not mean 100 percent reduction, but rather 50 to 90 percent reduction. New hairs appear over time, but in most cases it is finer, and easier to manage. Maintenance treatments can still be done after your recommended sessions are finished to help with new hairs that have grown over time.
The ideal candidate is anyone who has unwanted hair that appears dark in colour. The darker and coarser the hair appears, the more effective the treatment will be. Finer, lighter coloured hairs often require more treatments and do not always respond well.
Waxing and shaving often result in breakage of the hair. The tugging on the hair causes the hair to break half way while the rest of the hair remains attached. The hair then tries to grow but it has been disrupted causing the hair to coil. This results in a large, red swollen ingrown hair.
Laser Hair Removal can effectively treat and prevent ingrown hairs from happening in the first place. The laser does not come in contact with the hair, rather the filtered light is absorbed by the pigment of the hair which is then converted to heat. There is no tugging or pulling on the hair. Laser Hair Removal can still target the hair inside the ingrown and the heat helps eliminate any bacteria inside of the follicle.
