To understand each advantage of laser hair removal, it is important to understand how it works and how it acts on the hair.
So let's explain: the technology present in the laser aims to reach the root of the hair. For this, the laser is emitted with a very intense and concentrated light that, when approaching the root of the thread, is attracted by its melanin.
Thus, the laser precisely affects the hair follicle and when in contact with it, the heat reaction damages the hair root.
This is the procedure that occurs at each laser hair removal session. In this way, over time and sessions, the root weakens and prevents natural hair growth.
The average number of sessions varies according to the laser used, as well as the level of hair a person has. In some cases, not everyone can use the same type of laser, as this affects the result and can cause burns.
What do you mean?
Well, laser hair removal is very safe, modern and offers almost no discomfort. However, some lasers, usually older ones, may not be able to differentiate very well between a person's hair tone and skin color - causing the skin to heat up.
You can choose the photoepilation instead of the traditional laser too!
Photoepilation is a long-lasting epilation technique that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to eliminate hair. The photoepilator equipment emits pulses of light, which will generate heat and weaken the hair in the treated area.
The technology uses the high power of light absorption that the cells that produce hair have. In this way, they are slowly destroyed until they are eliminated.
Always look for high quality IPL Laser hair Removal devices, the Snowyskin’s Laser Hair Removal Handset uses laser technology that emits rapid light pulses.
The IPL Laser device has been designed to deliver results in 3-4 weeks. 5 different power settings to suit your skin-tone or skin sensitivity while still producing results at any level.
The Intense Pulsed Light equipment, as the name implies, emits pulses of light that will focus on the hair. The action of this technology takes place in the germ cells, which produce the threads. That is, the light focuses on these cells and, through the heat generated and the increase in local temperature, cauterization is performed on them, preventing them from starting the hair growth phase.
Pulsed light helps to weaken the cells that are directly connected to the hair, as it is absorbed by the dark pigments in these hairs. But, because it emits beams with different wavelengths and in a diffuse way, the energy of this light is not focused exclusively on the hair, reaching other structures of the skin.
Precisely because these beams of light manage to reach only between 20 and 40% of the body hair cells and disperse to other skin structures, more sessions are needed to reach the desired result.
The average number of sessions of a photoepilation treatment is 12 sessions, with an interval of 30 days between them. However, the exact amount will vary from case to case and will be determined through an evaluation by a medical professional or the device you used. In this evaluation, information such as the type and color of the patient's skin, thickness and phase of hair growth, application region and health situation will be collected.
The results of the depilation method using pulsed light already appear in the first session, with a reduction in the amount of hair in the region. But its medium to short-term effects, around months, cannot say that photoepilation is definitive. This is because the technique only weakens their cells and slows down their growth, causing them to be born again after a while.
