Laser Hair Removal Los Angeles
Laser hair removal represents a significant breakthrough in the removal of unwanted body hair. It is based on the principle of selective thermolysis, whereby a specific wavelength of light of an optimal pulse duration is aimed at a dark target that will absorb this light energy, while the surrounding lighter colored tissues are spared. In the case of laser hair removal, that target is melanin, the dark pigment in the hair follicle. For this reason, the ideal combination for laser hair removal is dark hair in light skin.
Hair has three phases of growth, but a laser can only affect the hair in its most active phase of early growth, the anagen phase. It is for this reason that several sessions of laser treatment are required to achieve an optimal long-term reduction of hair. After each laser hair removal treatment, the affected hairs are usually shed two to three weeks after each session.
