What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is the removal of unwanted hair with concentrated light beams. This is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. During this procedure, highly concentrated light is directed at your hair follicles to cause the pigment to absorb the light. The light absorption causes the hair to be destroyed. During your treatments, you may see some regrowth, but this is just untreated hair. Dr. Mohammedi typically recommends 3 – 6 treatments for optimal results. After your treatments are complete, your hair may not grow back for years. However, this depends on many things, such as your hair type, hair color, and more. If you think you would benefit from laser hair removal, contact Bloom Medical Group in Whittier, CA.
How does laser hair removal work?
Dr. Mohammedi’s laser hair removal uses an 810nm Diode treatment that targets the root of your hair follicle. The treatment uses a wavelength that is absorbed by your hair's pigments during the active hair growing phase (anagen phase). This heats the follicle to a temperature that disables your hair follicle. Only about 30% to 50% of your hair is in the anagen phase at one time. This means it will take multiple procedures to get optimal results.
