How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting pigment in the root of the hair. These hair roots are inside the hair follicle. Follicles grow and shed hair throughout your life. The Excel® HR laser system heats up the hair root, damaging the follicle and preventing new hair growth. Unlike many other laser hair removal devices, the Excel® HR uses two different lasers so it can safely treat both light and dark skin and hair. The different laser wavelengths target more hair pigment colors to effectively shut down hair follicles.
How Many Sessions for Laser Hair Removal?
Most people need anywhere from three to twelve treatments for full hair removal. The number of treatments depends on the growth of hair. Hair follicles spend some of their time in a resting phase where they grow no hairs. Because they don’t contain a hair root, the laser does not deactivate them. Before the next treatment, more follicles will become active and ready to treat.
What Results Will I See From Laser Hair Removal?
You will see a reduction in hair after your first visit and after each additional session. Your results will last several months to a year, and when you do see hair growth recurring, you will find that the hair feels soft, fine, and less noticeable. Yearly maintenance treatments will keep hair growth from starting again so you can continue to enjoy the benefits of long-term smooth skin.
These benefits include freedom from the expense of razor blades, waxing sessions, and other hair removal methods. You will also be freed from spending hours of time removing hair. You won’t have to think before going somewhere whether you have stubble, because you’ll know you don’t.
