Here are the important facts you need to know about laser hair removal:
How Does Laser Hair Removal Treatment Work?
At its core, laser hair removal is fairly self‑explanatory. Kill the hair follicle and stunt future growth. We do that with a medical laser that will penetrate safely without damaging the skin. However, as someone who has had laser hair removal or has at least read up on it, you probably already know there’s more to it than that.
Laser hair removal uses highly-concentrated beams of light from a laser to “kill” hair follicles. The “killing” of these hair follicles prevents hair from regrowing, effectively giving you smooth, hair-free skin that doesn’t require regular shaving, waxing, or plucking.
Laser hair removal can be done on virtually any part of the body where unwanted hair grows—upper lip, underarms, legs, bikini, chest, arms—you name it, and there’s a good chance we’ve done it. The full hollywood brazilian followed by under arms are the two most popular treated areas at Bolus Med Spa.
Learn About The Hair Growth Cycle
The hair growth cycle is a complex process, but understanding it can help to understand the laser hair removal process.
Anagen: The anagen phase is the growth cycle of hair. It is during this phase that LHR is most effective. This is because, during the anagen phase, hair is visible on the skin’s surface, moving heat down the strand and into the hair follicle.
Catagen: The catagen stage is a transitional phase of the hair cycle, during which the hair follicle shrinks and the hair shaft detaches from the blood supply. This stage typically lasts for 2-3 weeks, and during this time, LHR will not be as effective because the hair itself is already dead.
Telogen: Although it is most effective when the hair is in the active growth phase, known as the anagen stage, it can also be used on hair in the resting phase, known as telogen. However, treatment during telogen is less effective as the hair is not visible above the skin’s surface.
Please understand that the hair follicle grows in different stages, but only responds to the laser during one of those phases. We don't know which phase is which, so it is important to stay consistent with the timing in order to “kill” the hair follicle. In addition, results tend to be best for those who have a contrast between skin and hair (i.e. light skin with dark hair). This is because the laser can more effectively target the hair follicle when it can “see” the follicle clearly. At Bolus, we have the technology to perform laser hair reduction on anyone who wishes to try it.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe For Me?
YES! Laser hair removal is safe for all skin types! Whether your skin is Black/African, Middle Eastern, Indian/Asian, or Caucasian....Laser hair removal is a very safe procedure, but choose your clinic and provider carefully without focusing on price! Trying to save a few dollars up front will likely cost you a lot more money and time in the long run. Medical lasers are NOT CHEAP, so how in the world are you getting that price?

How Many Treatments WIll I Need?
Depends. The number of treatments required for complete hair removal varies from person to person, but most people need between six and nine treatments. This is usually every 4-8 weeks depending on the treatment area. You will likely have some growth in the future, which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee.

Other factors include, hormones, health problems, medications, sun exposure, lifestyle, diet, stress, tolerance to the optimal laser energy, skin and hair color.
