When talking about laser hair removal, we are actually talking about hair ‘reduction’. Why? Because, in the strictest, most literal, sense, complete hair removal so that not even one hair grows back, ever, is actually impossible.
But that’s certainly not to say that laser hair reduction is not effective. Following your complete treatment course, you may need one or two ‘touch up’ treatments annually to keep any stray hairs at bay. And when you compare a single laser hair reduction treatment PER YEAR, with DAILY plucking and/or shaving, you can see why laser hair reduction is so popular.
Laser hair reduction works by using a specific wavelength of light to ‘attach’ to the melanin in a hair follicle and damage that hair follicle. Once the follicle is damaged enough, it can obviously not grow any more hairs.
But, not all hair reduction methods are the same. At laser By Sia, we use the latest alexandrite laser technology, and not IPL. Why? Because IPL emits several non-specific wavelengths of light, so its hair reduction results can be pretty hit and miss. The Alexandrite laser, on the other hand, emits a single and precise wavelength of light, which is the ideal wavelength to reach the hair follicles, for the best hair reduction results.
The best hair for laser hair reduction is thick, dark hair, which is good news as this is the type of hair most people want to remove! Thick dark hair has the most melanin, so you get the best laser hair reduction results. After every session, hair will grow back lighter and finer than it was before, until the hair is so fine and light it is unnoticeable, or it just doesn’t grow back at all.
Laser hair reduction can be used anywhere on the face or body, except for under the eyebrows, as this is too close to the eye. Sessions take only minutes, and you will need around 10 sessions to see significant hair reduction.
