Permanent Laser Hair Reduction

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser energy is a highly effective and proven method to remove unwanted hair on the face and body, which can often be a personal issue for men and women of all ethnicities, ages, skin colours, and hair colours, often impacting on a person’s confidence.

Laser hair removal is an excellent choice of treatment for any one wanting a permanent solution to reduce and remove unwanted hair, and alleviate the irritations that other temporary methods of hair removal can cause such as cuts, burns, itchiness, dryness and ingrown hairs.

Laser hair removal treatment works by a process called selective photothermolysis, which means getting the right amount of laser energy to destroy the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser targets the melanin (dark pigment) in the hair follicle and shaft, and by using melanin as a conductor, laser energy travels down to the root of a hair follicle, and the energy converts to heat, which damages the hair follicle so that it no longer produces hairs.

What is the difference between Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)?

When considering treatment for Laser Hair Removal, it is important to understand the difference between Laser and IPL. IPL machines are not lasers. The main differences between Laser and IPL mainly lies in the technology that each use to generate light energy, as well as the different properties of the light being used.

Laser machines produce a single wavelength of light (pure light consisting of one single colour and form), which has a very concentrated beam and specific target (the melanin in the hair follicle). Laser machines create more heat directed at the hair follicle than IPL systems, hence achieving better results. Because the heat is absorbed by the follicle, and not the skin, there is a decreased risk of burning when using Laser machines. This also makes Laser a safer option for darker skinned individuals.

IPL machines produce a broad spectrum of wavelengths (like a light bulb) and cannot be focused to a concentrated beam. Because a range of different wavelengths are dispersed at a variety of depths only some of these will be effective for hair reduction. In addition, some of the light can be absorbed into the surrounding tissue as well, leading to heating of the pigment in the skin. This is why there is more of a risk of burns for a darker skin type.

IPL machines have an important place in treatment of the skin. The non-specific nature of an IPL is what makes the treatment so effective when targeting skin problems, such as pigmentation and fine blood vessels.



Laser Hair Removal For Men

Male grooming, and particularly laser hair removal has become increasingly popular in most recent years, as men now display a far more open attitude towards beauty and aesthetic treatments to improve the way they look and feel.

Excessive hair growth in men is often caused by excessive levels of testosterone, but this is not always the case as genetics, age and ethnicity also play a part.

Just as hair maintenance is a nuisance for women, it is equally so for men, especially on noticeable or difficult to reach areas such as the back, shoulders or neck, which is why painful waxing and irritating shaving is becoming a thing of the past as more and more men are opting for long term permanent results, rather than short term methods of hair maintenance.

All areas of the body are treatable, with the most popular areas typically being chest, back, shoulders, abdomen, neck and cheeks with increasing popularity to treat hands, arms, legs, feet and buttocks; and just as bikini lines are most popular with women, so too are speedo lines with men.
