LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser Hair Removal Moncton
If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is an option worth considering.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
A laser is used to target the melanin of the hair follicle to heat and destroy the bulb (root) of the hair follicle. It requires a series of treatment to destroy the hair and make sure it doesn’t come back.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Hair grows in indeterminate cycles, and it needs to be caught in the growth phase for the procedure to be effective. At all times you have 25% of your hair in the growth phase, where your hair needs to be for the laser to work. This is the reason a series of sessions is required at following your hair growth cycles.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
A series of 5-7 sessions is requred for a 70-90% permanent reduction. With age and hormonal changes maintenance is recommended down the road.
All Lasers are not created equal.
Look for a clinics who are using ND Yag Laser for darker skin type and Alexandrite Laser for lighter skin types. IPL or Photo Hair Removal is often used to reduce hair but is less effective than true laser with a longer process.
Hair Removal for Light Hair
The laser targets the pigmentation your hair to kill the bulb. This is why lighter hair does not respond to laser hair removal treatments. Blond, gray and red hair are hard to treat.
The starting price of Laser Hair Removal is $100 per sessions. Price goes by area. Example a Brazilian is usually around $200 per sessions. A series of 5-7 sessions is recommended for a 70-90% permanent reduction. Maintenance is recommended down the road.
