How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

S. Thetics Med Spa  of Lawrence owns 2 FDA-cleared laser hair removal systems near you in Lawrence.  We will choose the most effective device and treatment plan for your particular hair color and skin type.  The laser deposits heat into the bulge of the hair which destroys the base of the follicle permanently.  A series of treatments are required to account for the fact that hair can only be destroyed in the active growth stage.

Number of Treatments Recommended

On average, 4 to 8 laser hair removal treatments at our Leawood office provides the maximum results.

Recovery Time & Side Effects
  • Minimal to none

While the majority of clients experience maximum results after 4 to 8 treatments, we encourage our clients to have the number of laser hair removal treatments that achieve their desired results.

What to expect

The Laser Hair Removal Process

3 Phases of Hair Growth

How much hair you have depends on how many hairs are in their active growth cycle and how long that cycle lasts. Hair revolves through three phases of growth: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Hairs in the anagen phase can be treated with laser hair removal devices.

Many people don’t realize that the hair growth cycle plays a huge role in laser hair removal treatments. In addition, factors such as age, ethnicity, medications, and more can influence how fast your hair moves through the three phases. Since the cycle varies from person to person, our specialists will work with you to create a customized laser hair removal treatment plan.

The Anagen Phase

Also known as the “active growing” phase, during this phase the hair bulb is still intact. Your hair also grows in multiple directions—upward and downward. Since the bulb is closest to the surface of your skin at this time, it contains an abundance of melanin. As a result, laser hair removal can more effectively target hair follicles in the anagen phase.

The Catagen Phase

The catagen phase is a brief rest period that happens between anagen and telogen. At this point, the lower part of the hair stops growing but hasn’t shed. The body also absorbs the lower third of the hair follicle.

The Telogen Phase

Lastly, the telogen phase marks the resting period when the hair bulb disappears, which creates “club hair.” Club hair then either falls out or hair entering the anagen phase pushes it out.

Since not all follicles are in the same phase at once, it is very important that you get multiple laser hair removal treatments to target each follicle during the anagen phase.

How it Works

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses light to target the melanin that lies in the hair follicle’s growth centers. From there, the light converts to heat to destroy the follicle at the source. Without its growth center, hair follicles can no longer grow in the treatment area(s).

We always recommend getting multiple laser hair removal treatments simply because the treatment targets the active phase of the hair growth cycle. When hair is in the resting phase (telogen), it can’t properly absorb light or generate enough heat to cause damage to the growth center.

As long as you follow your customized laser hair removal plan, you’ll gain long-lasting results. Believe it or not, laser hair removal is effective in eliminating 80 to 90% of hair within the treated areas. Even if you notice hair growing back, it is typically finer and less noticeable than it was before.  For most people, that means there is no longer a need for daily shaving or even monthly waxing to achieve the ultimate silky smooth look.

Laser hair removal is safe for most skin tones and hair textures (even darker skin). Since S. Thetics Med Spa is equipped with four different lasers, we can ensure that each client receives personalized care. Because our laser hair removal treatments are customized to each person, the treatment can effectively remove hair on all body parts, including the:

  • Face
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • And more!
