Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal

What Causes Unwanted Hair Growth?

Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormonal levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and some illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Usually, hair growth is desirable. But when the hair is the wrong part of your body, a woman's upper lip or bikini line for example, you may consider electrolysis.

How Many Electrolysis Treatments Will I Need?

Since many factors influence hair growth, you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week, as necessary. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments have been completed. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.

Longer wavelength lasers such as Nd: YAG are considered to be the best for darker skin phototypes. They've been proven safer and more efficient than any other method of laser hair removal.

 Nd:YAG Laser Hair Removal

Nd:YAG lasers are solid state lasers. They work at wavelengths of 1064nm, which is within the infrared area of the light spectrum. They not only work at this wavelength, but can also work in a double frequency mode which creates green light at 532nm wavelengths. Nd:YAG laser hair removal systems are said to be effective at on all skin types, something which other laser hair removal systems are unable to do. This laser treatment also has a fast rate of repetition and can be used on larger areas of skin such as the back and laser hair removal on legs.

Carbon is used as the chromophore in Nd:YAG laser hair removal systems. Carbon is used for its safety and strong absorptive properties. Carbon is a better chromophore than melanin at 1065nm wavelengths. A carbon lotion is used on the skin and this penetrates the hair follicle. The laser will then target the carbon during treatment. The only draw back to this is getting the carbon to penetrate the skin deeply enough to get into the hair follicles. There is also a risk that the carbon will spread out in the skin and when it comes into contact with the laser, it may cause a tattoo-like effect. 

What are the Advantages of Nd:YAG Laser Hair Removal?
