This is the best time for the hair to be treated, when At the very bottom of the follicle is the dermal the hair follicle is at it’s most vulnerable. papilla containing a group of germination cells from which the growth of all hair begins. Each individual hair follicle has its own cycle of growing, falling out and resting. Humans are constantly shedding hair from all over the body. From 25 to 50 scalp hairs are shed every day. The lifetime of a hair varies a great deal among the various body areas and will differ from person to person. Lashes and brows may last 4 to 5 months, a scalp hair may average 2 to 4 years, but on some people last up to 7 years. The worse scenario is there can be as many as centimetre of skin, but only 10% (or 50) may During the catagen phase the growth process actually be growing at any one time.

This is possible as the wavelength of light targets a single pigment in the skin such as melanin, haemoglobin or ink. The light is selectively absorbed by the target structure only, leaving the other skin components intact. Lasers used for hair removal target the dark pigment of the hair and cells around the hair follicle. The pigment is at it’s darkest whilst the hair it is in the anagen or growing phase. A beam of laser light of around 10 mm in diameter will destroy many hairs in that area in one flash. Many published research papers show excellent permanent reduction in hair growth following laser treatments.

Pre-Treatment Care
1. Avoid the use of depilatory creams and any possible skin irritant such as the stimulant creams (Retin-A, Retinova, Glycolic Cream) for one day prior to treatment 2. If we are treating the face you may still wear make-up on the day of treatment. Make-up will need to be removed completely before the treatment commences 3. Do not have a tanned skin. You must protect the area from exposure to the sun. Avoiding
the sun is best, otherwise always make sure you a re wearing a SPF 15 sunblock. As well as reducing the risk of an adverse effect, you will get better results if you do not have a tan at the time of treatment. Do not use self-tan or solariums for at least one month prior to treatments. 4. Shaving. The area to be lasered will respond best if there are no visible hair above the surface. This allows all the available laser energy to be used on where it matters-in the hair follicle within the skin. Clients will experience less discomfort also as there may be a sting if a lasered hair above the skin is pressed on to the skin. Please then close-shave the area on the day of treatment. Bear in mind that you will need to point out to the laser operator the definition of the area to be treated. 5. Do not wax or pluck for at least one month prior to your treatment. If you are currently on the medication Ro-accutane or Gold Therapy or have been in the past 6 months, please let us know before each treatment session. This medication can make your skin more susceptible to damage from the laser. Post treatment Care
After your treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to sunburn, may occur in some patients. These effects typically last 24 hours or less. In very rare cases blistering may occur. 1. Avoid exposing the treated area to sunlight for 2-3 weeks after your treatment. If you do go in the sun, protect with a SPF 15 sunscreen. 2. Keep the area clean. Wash gently with tepid water. Avoid the use of any possible skin irritant on the face such as the stimulant creams (Retin-A, Retinova, Glycolic Cream), Benzoyl peroxide or astringents. 3. Should the area appear red or show any signs of tenderness, apply a soothing cream such as over the counter Hydrocortisone Cream or Aloe Vera Gel. If you experience any persistent irritation or notice weeping, broken skin, blistering, or pigmentation changes following the treatment please get in touch with us. 4. Do not shave the treated area for at least 4 days after the treatment. Do not wax, pluck or use depilatories for the hair that grows back. After laser treatment, hair may continue to grow out as if it were never even treated. Typically this will occur for about 2 weeks and then these hairs will simply begin to fall out.
