In laser hair removal, the hair follicles are not exposed to rays, but to amplified ultraviolet light. The light of laser hair removal is absorbed only by the melanin pigment, without traveling through the skin.
The laser hair removal light absorbed by the melanin pigment creates a certain destruction in the hair follicles and terminates hair production. In laser hair removal, which does not cause any damage to the skin, only the hair follicles in the active period are affected.
The main reason why the procedure consists of at least 8 sessions is to destroy active hair follicles in each session. Because not every root enters the active period in the same period.
Laser hair removal is a permanent solution for unwanted hair
Thanks to the technology and new devices used today, it is possible to get rid of unwanted hair permanently with the help of hair removal. The aim of laser hair removal is to permanently destroy only the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissues and to ensure that they cannot produce hair.
If there is no hormonal problem, hair production of hair follicles can be permanently stopped if a device suitable for the person’s hair and skin color is intervened. Hair in the areas where laser epilation is applied decreases by up to 90%. Even after the first session, a visible reduction begins to be experienced.
How many sessions should laser hair removal be?
Laser hair removal is not a procedure whose effects can be maximized in a single session. Laser hair removal light is effective on active hair follicles, unfortunately not all hair follicles in our body are active at the same time.
While hair follicles that are active at the time of application are affected by laser light, follicles at rest and in the regression period are not affected. Since hair color, structure and growth stages vary from person to person, the number of sessions required varies for everyone. Experts recommend at least 8 sessions for the most successful result.
The number of sessions that may vary according to the person may also vary according to the application area. If you want to have laser hair removal, you can find out the number of sessions required for you by contacting your specialist.
What should be the session intervals in laser hair removal?
At the beginning of the laser hair removal process, the session intervals vary between 6-8 weeks on average in the body area, while the average is between 4-6 weeks in the face area. These periods may be longer in the following sessions. The best time for the next session is when the hair grows again and can be recognized on the skin. Because when the hair grows enough to be seen, it is an indication that the roots are active and will be affected by the session.
In our center, control sessions, which are held 15 days after your sessions and intervene in the hair follicles when necessary, are free of charge, although they are not included in your main sessions.
