Pigment in the hair and skin. It can be used on skin types 1-5 for hair reduction. Clients skin type 3 – 5should always have first treatment on lowest settings.
How does it work?
Laser remove hair through a process called Selective Photo thermolysis in which energy in the form of Wavelengths is delivered into the hair shaft and follicle. The light is attracted to and absorbed by the melanin And this heats the tissue causing thermal damage to the follicle resulting in hairs weakening or not growing Back.
How many treatments?
The amount of treatments can vary from person to person but usually 8-12 treatments will give you a reduction Of up to 80-90% and then maintenance treatments once a year. If there is a hormonal imbalance you may
