To achieve permanent hair removal the Anagen phase is targeted when the growth is active and contains an abundance of melanin. The melanin in the hair shaft and hair follicle absorbs the red light. Once the temperature reaches 70 degrees the protein in the cell denatures and the active hair follicle dies and loses the ability to regrow. In a period of 7-14 days most hair on the treated area will depilate from the follicles, leaving the skin smooth and hairless.
How long does the treatment take? Typically, takes up to 60 minutes, depending on the area to be treated.
How many treatments are necessary? One requires more or less 6 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart in order to achieve permanent results. Brown and black hair on most skin types and on all body areas is treatable.
