PULSED LIGHT HAIR REMOVAL: HOW DOES IT WORK?

HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE

  • Step 1. Shave the treatment area.
  • Step 2. Place the pulsed light handpiece on the area to be treated.
  • Step 3. Handpiece emits a beam of intense pulsed light, which is absorbed by the hair follicles and converted to heat.
  • Step 4. Heat disables the hair follicles.

HAIR GROWTH CYCLES

  • Anagen Phase
    Anagen is the active phase of hair growth and generally lasts for several months. This is the best phase for the Pulsed Light Systems to disable new hair as it grows.
  • Catagen Phase
    During this brief phase, the hair bulb regresses and begins to shrink.
  • Telogen Phase
    At the end of this resting phase, which typically lasts a few months, hair is released from the shriveled follicles and the anagen phase begins again.

Pulsed light treatments are most effective on hair in the anagen phase. Multiple treatments may be necessary for permanent removal of hair.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will the Treatments Hurt?
Palomar Pulsed Light Systems use a unique long pulsewidth that delivers energy to the skin over a relatively long period of time. This makes the pulses safer and more comfortable. You may experience a feeling similar to that of a rubber band being snapped on the skin, but most people do not report this sensation as painful.

Are There Any Adverse Reactions to Treatment?
You may experience temporary redness and a mild “sunburn”- like effect that may last a few hours to a few days.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments varies depending on the person, the body part being treated, and how much of the hair is in the active phase of growth. Your treatment provider will be able to give you a better assessment after consultation.
