A hair removal technique in which a specified wavelength of light is delivered from a hand piece into the skin, where it targets dark material (usually the pigment in hair). This is intended to cause thermal and/or mechanical damage to a hair follicle while sparing surrounding tissues. Light skin and dark hair are the best combination for laser hair removal. The more closely your skin tone matches your hair color, the less likely you are to benefit from laser hair removal.
a new treatment design to remove and prevent further growth of hair by using a laser to deactivate hair follicles.
A simple cooling tip comes in contact with the surface of the skin before delivering a high speed of light.
The permanent removal of hair using lasers.
Lasers emit a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The energy from the laser is converted into heat that paralyzes the hair follicle while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. This method of hair removal eliminates 60 times the hair per treatment than electrolysis.
For unwanted hair
Use of concentrated beams of light to permanently remove unwanted hair. Best candidates for the procedure have very fair skin and very dark hair.
The permanent reduction of hair growing in an area of the body - usually during a course of several sessions in which laser light is used for the selective targeting of melanin in hair follicles. (The FDA insists that manufacturers can promise only permanent reduction, not permanent removal). Most effective on candidates who are fair- skinned and whose hair is darker than the surrounding skin.
