Your hair actually grows in three phases: an active growth phase, regressive phase, and resting phase. The laser disables hair in the active phase. Each one of your hair follicles can be in different growth stages.
With each treatment, we target those hairs in the “active growth” phase. In order to completely remove your hair, there will need to be several laser treatments.
The Science Behind Our Utah Laser Hair Removal
The principle behind laser hair removal is called selective photothermolysis (SPTL). While this may sound a bit complicated, it is really quite simple. We all know that light is absorbed by dark objects. Just step on the blacktop in your bare feet in the summer for proof of that!
In the skillful hands of our technician, the process for laser hair removal in Utah will selectively heat dark target matter in the area that causes hair growth, the follicle, through a state-of-the-art laser – performed without heating the rest of the skin.
The dark matter targeted is melanin, which is the pigment that colors your hair as well as your skin, the more melanin, the darker your hair.
By tuning the laser to a specific wavelength of light, that matches the pigment in your hair follicles, and adjusting the pulse duration, our highly trained technician can be very precise in destroying a hair follicle.
The light is absorbed by the pigment and the hair follicle is destroyed without damaging the surrounding tissue. Once it is out of action, no home hair will grow. In addition, lasers have a cooling mechanism that further ensures there is no damage to the surrounding cells.
