It is the most common requested cosmetic procedure in the world. Different types of laser machines are used for hair reduction. At our clinic we used a US FDA approved Diode Laser.
Laser Hair reduction uses selective photothermolysis principle to target the pigment present in the hair follicle (melanin is the chromosphere)
The light in the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converted to heat and causes destruction of the hair. This work in dark thick hair with multiple sittings at a regular interval of time.
Multiple sitting is must for laser hair reduction to show proper results.
In general only 15% of hair are permanently removed with each laser session, atleast 6 to 8 session per body part are required to show true results. In the true form it is laser hair reduction and not laser hair removal. Some clients may require more sittings based on hormonal issues.
In between sessions it is ideal to shave the hair if required for hair removal.
Best results are acheived when multiple sittings are done over a regular interval of time.
