The light energy during laser hair removal is absorbed by the hair pigment (melanin) and causes it to heat up. This effect injures the hair follicle, and it will take some time to recover, from about 3 to 12 months. At first, the hairs will be thinner and less frequent, but gradually they will become more and more. Our clients, who did laser hair removal before electro, noted that the amount of hair was restored in full or almost completely. Light and gray hair does not contain pigment, and therefore there will be no result from such therapy. Red hair contains the reddish pigment pheomelanin (as opposed to dark eumelanin) and is also insensitive to light. In addition, the color of the skin is important, since the pigment is contained in it. The darker the skin, the more restrictions on the type of laser. The ideal client is white skin with dark thick hair.
The darker the hair, the more it absorbs the laser beam. Light hair hardly absorbs the laser beam. Does not last long. In the best case, after 5 procedures, the effect will last for 1 year
I did, for example, a year ago on my feet in the laser medicine clinic com.ua. I had to do five sessions. So far - nothing else. I hope that the hairs will not appear again, but even if one or two come out, they can be easily dealt with with the same laser
Laser hair removal is carried out several times: the laser destroys the hair follicle, this requires several sessions, which can take from several months to a year, depending on the thickness and density of the hair. After the permanent destruction of the hair follicle, the hair in the laser-treated area will no longer grow.
