In my comparatively lengthy electrolysis hair removal encounter, I have treated a multitude of persons of different ages and genders, and with diverse kind of hair and skin color.

Not too long ago, I have had a number of clientele coming to me for electrolysis, claiming getting dissatisfied with the final results of laser hair removal therapies on their face, shoulders, back or chest. In all these situations, and in their opinion, after possessing various remedies, laser has enhanced the hair growth as an alternative of removing or reducing hair permanently. They also claim that hair became darker and thicker.

Their case histories show that these consumers have light skin, excess hair development on the face and neck and imbalance of hormones. Also, some have poly-cystic ovarian syndromes, adrenal disorders and other circumstances that lead to the excessive development of hair. While their hair was visible prior to, it was not as excessive, thick and dark as when they completed with their laser hair removal treatments.

Getting both a certified clinical – healthcare electrologist and a laser technician and having worked in the electrolysis field considering the fact that 1997, I tend to advocate my clients (especially ladies) to have electrolysis and not to have laser hair removal treatment options on the face, neck, back and shoulders.

Back to basic: laser vs electrolysis

Hair grows out of the dermis. The indentation of the skin in which the hair shaft grows is referred to as a follicle. The only living portion of the hair is identified in the follicle. This is the base of the root, which is known as the bulb, and which contains the cells that make the hair shaft. It is this hair bulb in the follicle that each laser and electrolysis are targeting when aiming to eliminating the hair development.

Given that the follicle can produce two forms of hair: vellus hair, which are pale, fine, and fluffy and terminal hair, which are darker, coarser and thicker, could it be attainable that the applied (laser) radiation, in some circumstances, stimulates hair follicles that produces the fine hair into producing terminal hair?

It is crucial to point out that laser can not treat individual follicles. When applied, it treats not only the undesirable hair, but the laser beam goes also more than a far greater skin area that surrounds the undesirable hair, where there is no visible or a extremely fine hair.

No matter what type of laser machine for hair removal is becoming used – diode, alexandrite or long pulsed Nd:Yg – the principal behind the LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) hair removal is the identical.

When the laser operator activates the laser, the laser beam will pass by way of the skin to the tiny sacs named follicles where hair development originates. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which eliminates hair growth.

The hand piece tip of the laser hair removal machine have to be in firm contact with the skin. Many pulses should then be placed subsequent to a single one more while searching for the epidermal response. The firm pressure also flattens the epidermis, bringing the hair roots closer to the surface. Hair roots closer to the surface have a greater probability of absorbing the laser light.

In contrast to laser hair removal, electrolysis devices treat person follicles only. Making use of the most modern day technology, a minute quantity of electrical energy is cautiously applied to the base of the hair follicle. 脫毛 of action destroys the hair development cell. For that reason, the regrowth potential of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated.
