How effective is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal focuses on the thickness and color of the hair. Due to the laser color, it is absorbed by the hair follicles, and due to the high energy, the roots heat up and burn. In this way, after a successful laser epilation, the roots are shed and the roots that are in the growth phase are damaged so that they cannot produce hair again.
What are the factors affecting the success of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can actually increase hair growth when improperly recommended and applied. For this reason, it is of great importance that it be done under the supervision of a dermatologist. Your dermatologist examines your skin and hair structure and makes the hair removal decision. The most important factors that make the laser successful are listed below:
Structure and color of the bristles:
Laser hair removal is always more successful on dark brown and black hair. It is more successful on thick hairs than thin ones. For this reason, high success is achieved in the armpit and genital area with this type of hair structure in less sessions. On the other hand, it does not show any effect other than providing a long-term epilation effect on thin light brown hairs in the face area. In other words, it does not cause a permanent reduction in hairs. In this way, it can even thicken the hairs and increase their number.
Hormonal and genetic structure, hereditary features:
Some people are more prone to hair growth. The number of hair follicles is higher and there may be a tendency to recur even after laser. The most important factor you doubt in women is hormonal health. In some women, menstrual irregularities, thick hair on the chin, abdomen and chest area can be a sign of hormonal irregularity. In such cases, we request the necessary examinations and we can also recommend hormonal balancing pills to our patients for successful epilation. Some medications can also trigger hair growth.
Skin color and sensitivity:
In people with dark skin, the dose of the laser may have to be reduced.
Some people have very sensitive skin. In such patients, we often decide on laser after taking a test shot, and we can recommend some ointments in the form of drugs after laser epilation. These drugs help our patients to have a more comfortable laser experience by calming the damage caused by the laser.
Is there a guarantee for laser hair removal?
Undoubtedly, centers that give guarantees have suddenly emerged in our country. Laser epilation, which is a completely scientific method, has no guarantee just like other treatments. Only the factors listed above affect its success. So there are successful and unsuccessful laser hair removal.
Many people have been victims of “till it’s done” campaigns, and they still do. While no beauty center in the USA can give a guarantee on its web page, beauty centers opened on every street in our country collect customers and give unfounded guarantees in order to pay for the expensive devices they buy with sheets and brochures.
For Comfortable Laser Hair Removal ?
Alexandrite lasers, when applied with cooling systems, provide a more comfortable epilation opportunity as their effects remain on the skin and do not affect the deep nerves. Undoubtedly, removing long hairs before the procedure also relieves epilation. Because the long hairs that are not removed before the laser burn during the procedure, stick to the skin and cause pain.
In epilation applied with Alexandrite lasers, the hair on the skin evaporates and disappears during the procedure. In this way, after epilation, the person is completely cleared of hair. After a while, the roots fall off on their own.
