Photo Epilation Hair Reduction
Photo Epilation, or ‘hair removal using light,’ has shown dramatic gains in popularity over the past several years. Excellent clinical results as well as low-risk success have contributed greatly to the sensation caused by this amazing procedure.
Red light has proven to be the best application for the long term removal of unwanted hair. It has been proven that it will target the varying depths of the hair follicle enabling successful treatment of excessive hair growth. While many methods of hair removal can eliminate unwanted hair, very few can leave the surrounding skin unaffected. Still using the concept of selective photo-thermolysis unwanted hair is eliminated and it’s potential for regrowth without damaging the surrounding skin. The Harmony is a quick, gentle, and effective way to remove hair.
During a treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for regrowth therefore prohibiting its growth. This action will only take place in the Anagen stage, which is when hair is in its full cycle. As it is not possible to determine when your hair is at this growth stage more than one treatment will have to be carried out to successfully reduce growth.
Treatments can vary in time depending on area and a course of treatments is recommended. The amount of treatments needed to successfully treat the area depends on the individual.
The number of sessions that is required to reach an acceptable level of Hair removal, which is defined by the FDA as a 70% permanent clearance; will depend on individual factors relating to hormonal changes, medical and other hereditary factors. It is advisable therefore those patients should be aware that it is not specifically defined as to exactly how many treatments will be required to achieve an acceptable level of reduction. It is important to give full details of medical history throughout the consultation process and any medical circumstances that may change throughout the treatment as this could affect the progress and inhibit the result
