What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is the process of the exposure of a specific wavelength of laser energy onto the skin. Laser Hair Removal works by focusing on a particular wavelength of laser power on the skin. The pulse of laser energy is brought to the melanin (pigment) of the own hair that then converts to heat in the origin of your hair follicle.
The follicle warms to a critical temperature in which it becomes cauterized, destroying the follicle and preventing future hair growth. Our specially trained personnel goal the hair follicles in their active growth phase (anagen) in the time of therapy, that is the only hair period which Laser Hair removal is effective at destroying the cells that make a hair.
Fotona’s Nd:YAG lasers incorporate revolutionary pulse-control technology along with a proprietary three-dimensional therapy routine to give safe and efficient hair loss. Contrary to other wavelengths, just Nd:YAG is safe to use on all skin types.
Fotona’s advanced system efficiently targets surface treatment places while leaving surrounding cells unaffected.
Comparison to other hair removal techniques:
Laser vs IPL:
IPL machines produce a broad spectrum of pulsed light wavelengths such as a light bulb. This wider array usually means that just some of those wavelengths will aim the hair. Laser Hair removal machines create one wavelength of light. This implies it is a very concentrated beam that has especially target the pigment from the hair follicle. In Collins Laser Aesthetics, we use Fotona Lasers which can be adjusted to various settings to operate with specific hair colors and skin tones. This has the benefit in that lasers may be safely used on dark skin since thanks to the capability to fine-tune the capsules, the heat will be absorbed by the hair follicle, not skin.
Laser vs Waxing
Waxing temporarily removes hair at the basis for a mean of 3 weeks of smooth skin, that may vary between two to six months based upon your hair type and thickness. However, the disadvantages of waxing are that it demands some regrowth so as to work since the wax requires at least a quarter-inch of stubble to adhere to. Treatments can be somewhat debilitating, as the hair is being ripped out in the origin, but it grows more tolerable with time. Waxing can also lead to ingrown hairs.
However, with laser the aim is for long term hair removal in all areas. Once you have completed your laser treatments you do not need to wax anymore.

Crusting can occasionally result after your laser treatments in scabbing or discoloration. The affected area might seem like skin that has only been waxed or plucked.
