Laser hair removal is a method that allows you to remove unwanted body hair painlessly and permanently. There are several advantages of this method. Laser action on hair is carried out in a targeted manner, that is, without damaging, even minimal, surrounding tissues. The principle of operation of a laser on hair looks somewhat simplified as follows. The laser is a light source of a special spectrum, with increased brightness. It acts on the pigment contained in the hair follicle, or, as it is also called, in the hair follicle, that is, the place where the hair begins. A pigment is a substance whose job it is to react to light. Under the influence of the laser, which is adjusted so that the illumination is excessive, the pigment "breaks", destroying the follicle.
Thus, laser hair removal is completely safe for all tissues, except for the hair follicle. Only the hair follicle contains a pigment substance that can react to the laser, and, so to speak, cannot withstand its onslaught. However, this is the only drawback of laser hair removal. With its help, it is impossible to remove light hairs, since they contain an extremely small amount of pigment, not enough to destroy the follicle. If you have blonde body hair, you will have to give up laser hair removal, resorting to a method that is more effective for you.
Is it possible to permanently remove hair with laser hair removal? Undoubtedly. However, this cannot be done the first time. Over time, albeit slowly, the hair follicle can recover, and some of it is restored. Some of the follicles die irrevocably, and their number increases from procedure to procedure. The darker the hairs, the more effective the laser is. Complete hair removal may require six to eight laser hair removal visits. However, you must be prepared for the fact that even after that you may have to carry out this procedure once a year to maintain the effect.
Agree, even ten laser hair removal procedures, and then one procedure per year is much more pleasant and comfortable than shaving twice a week or painful hair removal once every two weeks throughout your life. The laser does not cause any side effects, except for skin reddening, which, however, disappears within a few hours. Laser hair removal has the following contraindications: pregnancy, diabetes mellitus, cancer and skin diseases.
