What is Laser Hair Removal & How does LHR work? And Is It Permanent?
Laser Hair Reduction (LHR) is the process of hair reduction by means of exposing the hair follicle to rapid, repeating pulses of laser light. Such Lasers produce a single concentrated wavelength of light to specifically target melanin in the hair follicle, with the end result ultimately, being a major aesthetic reduction and removal of those unwanted problem hair follicles, in whatever problem area you may desire; Back, Face & Beard Line, Brow, Chest, Legs, Buttocks, or in some cases, even the Entire Body. While Laser Hair Reduction is not totally permanent, it will however substantially reduce the growth of hair in undesirable areas. After a complete series of LHR, you will need a touch up only once every 12 to 16 months depending on the person.
Why Choose Kumar Aesthetics Institute for Laser Hair Reduction ?
We ONLY offer and use a True Laser, using either the Alexandrite or Nd:YAG Wavelengths. This is essentially a pain-free procedure, compared to older technology IPL, which is found is lesser advanced aesthetic facilities and Med-Spas. At Kumar Aesthetics Institute, we are dedicated to providing our patients the latest generation of pain free, LHR Laser Hair Reduction technology and procedures. On an added our LHR system can be safely and effectively used for all skin types including African American and other ethnicities.
Know the difference between IPL and a True Laser for LHR ?
IPL uses a broad spectrum light wavelength and laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam. With IPL the light waves are far more scattered and have more shallow penetration, and many patients may experience various levels of discomfort. The True Laser however, can be targeted directly at the hair follicle, and with a pain free experience. Our Medical Aestheticians will utilize their skill and expertise to anticipate exactly how much heat they need to generate to remove the hair follicle, according to its color.
Kumar Aesthetics Institute Does Not use IPL machines, as are not actually true lasers. IPL produces only a broad spectrum of wavelengths (much like that of a light bulb) and as a result, cannot be focused into a finely concentrated, targeted beam.
Because IPL’s range of different wavelengths are dispersed at such a variety of depths only some of these will be effective for hair reduction. Keep in mind, IPL is much less effective than our Advanced True Lasers here at Kumar Aesthetics Institute. Along with the IPL’s much lower performance, it also has a substantial degree of pain or discomfort. Also, the use of IPL will require a substantially greater number of sessions to obtain the same results. You may need as many as 8 to 12 – IPL sessions compared to only 4 to 6 True Laser LHR sessions, again the LHR is the more advanced, truly Pain Free procedure, with substantially enhanced results.
