Lasers designed for hair removal emit wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). If the surrounding skin is lighter than the colour of the hair, the energy of the laser is concentrated in the hair shaft, helping to effectively destroying it without affecting the skin or the follicle.
Since lasers target pigment, treatments may be more effective on coarse hair because it has a lot of pigment and can absorb a lot of heat. Fine hair cannot absorb much heat. Results may vary per individual.
The ability of the laser device to produce a very narrow bandwidth on a consistent basis is the key to a safe efficient treatment. While the laser emits a beam that only heats the hair shaft, heat is transmitted from the hair shaft to the surrounding tissue for several milliseconds after the laser pulse. Lightsculpt lasers possess cooling attachments which cool the surrounding skin to help absorb any heat transmitted from the destroyed hair shafts, results may vary per individual.

How Many Treatments of Laser Hair Removal are required?
Most patients need at least 6-8 effective treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Because hair grows in cycles, sessions are necessary in order to affect all hair on any given area. Hair grows in stages and it’s only during its growth cycle, when the hair is still in its follicle, that the hair removal process is most effective. While each session may noticeably reduce the appearance of hair, 6 – 8 treatments are recommended for the best best outcome.
