Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.
Most people are suitable for treatment. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Grey and white hair can’t be treated with Laser and IPL.
Sensation during treatment varies, but most people describe it as moderate and tolerable. No anaesthesia is required during treatment.
The dead hair shed after 1-3 weeks from treatment as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to grow as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy, but this usually subsides within a few hours. Adverse reactions are rare, but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.
Treatment times can vary, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment, there is also an opportunity for any questions you may have to be answered. Before treatment commences you must sign written consent form and small test patch will be curried out.
