Zapping the Hair Permanently
- Posted on: Jun 30 2016
Unwanted hair is like that neighbor who keeps borrowing stuff — it just keeps coming back. You shave, pluck, wax, and use napalm-like creams to remove the stuff but then two or three weeks later there it is again.
So, why don’t you let the pros at Saltz Spa Vitoria use our Prowave laser to get rid of the hair permanently?
People love zapping those unwanted hairs
Year in and year out, laser hair removal is the most popular non-injection cosmetic treatment performed in the United States, ranking just behind dermal filler injections of Botox and Juvederm. That’s because it works very well and it’s easy. Laser hair removal is great on the underarms, face, bikini line, legs, back, and other areas of the body.
How it does away with the hair
There are two keys to our Saltz Spa Vitoria hair removal procedures — laser energy and the hair follicle. For permanent hair removal, the hair follicle’s bulb, bulge, and papilla must be destroyed. The vehicle is laser energy. The melanin in hair is the target for the laser energy, so different wavelengths are used for different hair colors. For this reason, laser hair removal isn’t as effective on light blond or gray hair.
The laser energy travels down the hair into the follicle and the heat then damages the follicle so it can no longer produce hair. Sometimes, if the follicle isn’t fully disabled, hair growth function can return in a few months or more.
Timing is important
Patients ask us why it takes a number of appointments to get rid of the hair. The problem is timing. Only actively growing hair responds well to laser treatments because the hair has the most melanin in that phase. But in addition to the anagen (active growth) phase, there are telogen (no growth), and cathagen (hair ejection) phases. The hairs across your body are in different phases at different times. Plus, different areas of the body have more hairs in anagen phases than others, because hair growth is more important in those areas.
