What Is Laser Hair Removal? Banner

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that aims to stop unwanted hair growth in certain areas. It is performed by using a focused laser beam to target and damage the root of hair follicles. Hair growth occurs in cycles – anagen is the active growth phase, catagen is the transitional/regressing phase, and telogen is the resting/shedding phase. Laser only affects follicles that are currently in the anagen phase. Thus, multiple treatments are needed to target follicles that were dormant at earlier sessions as they enter the active growth phase in subsequent hair cycles.
The number of treatments can vary, depending on the target area, amount of hair, its color, and thickness. While laser removal does not permanently eliminate hair, most patients experience long-lasting reductions in growth after several sessions. In general, the ideal plan includes 4-6 procedures spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

During treatment, a handheld device is placed against the target area. Pulses of laser light pass through the skin and are absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The light energy gets converted to heat, which damages the follicles and disrupts their ability to regrow hair.
At VIA Health & Medspa in Chandler, AZ, we offer Nd:YAG hair removal using an advanced Fotona laser. This innovative system utilizes proprietary pulse-control technology and a specialized 3D treatment method called FRAC3® to achieve safe and effective long-term hair reduction on all skin types.
Traditional laser hair removal is typically based on Alexandrite or Diode devices. These systems emit light at wavelengths that are well-absorbed by melanin in the hair shaft and follicles. However, these wavelengths have limitations in treating darker skin tones and are associated with a higher risk of side effects like blistering or discoloration. Thus, traditional approaches are becoming less popular due to such shortcomings.

In contrast, Nd:YAG devices emit light at a longer, 1064 nm, wavelength. They can penetrate deeper into the dermis layer of the skin, where the hair follicles are located. These lasers make it possible to treat patients with darker skin colors more safely.
Nd:YAG lasers can target follicles beneath the skin’s surface without damaging the surrounding tissues. Our amazing specialists specifically tailor the pulses of laser energy to disable the largest number of follicles possible and prevent future hair regrowth. This customized approach allows maximum hair reduction with minimal side effects.
Unlike other hair removal lasers, the Nd:YAG wavelength is proven gentle and effective enough for patients of every skin tone. The FRAC® technique further enhances results by treating the area from multiple angles and depths. As a result, patients see smooth, stubble-free skin after completing the recommended number of comfortable, non-invasive sessions.

Recovery After Laser Hair Removal

The recovery process after laser hair removal is fairly quick, with most side effects disappearing within a few days. However, it occurs repeatedly until the last session ends.

Week 1

Immediately after the first laser procedure, the target area may be slightly red. This typically resolves within a few hours. Over the next week, the treated hair will fall out. It is normal to experience some tingling or minor irritation as the hairs shed. Using a gentle cleanser and avoiding direct sunlight exposure can help to soothe the skin during this time.

Weeks 2-3

Around 2-3 weeks after treatment, you can see some hair regrowth. This is a normal process because hair grows in cycles. Some follicles may be in the passive state, while others are fully activated. The cycle is disrupted when the follicle is exposed to laser light. Repeating treatments at the appropriate intervals makes it possible to catch more follicles in the active growth phase each time.Results will continue to improve with each successive treatment. We will permanently disable the majority of hair follicles over the full course.

End of the Course

After the treatment, you can enjoy smooth skin that is free from shaving and waxing irritations. Maintenance sessions may be needed as hormone levels change or new follicles develop. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds, which can stimulate hair regrowth. With proper aftercare between laser sessions, patients can achieve long-lasting hair removal with minimal side effects.

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Although laser hair removal treatment can benefit all people who want to get rid of unwanted hair, the following patients can get the most out of this procedure.

Patients With Light Skin and Dark Hair Color

The best candidates for laser treatment are individuals with vivid skin and dark, coarse hair. The Nd:YAG technology works by targeting the pigment in hair follicles. Therefore, there needs to be a stark contrast between the hair and skin color for the lasers to effectively reach the follicles. Patients with fair skin and dark hair have the best results.Pale skin (Fitzpatrick types I and II) is the most appropriate for this procedure because it has lighter pigmentation, less melanin, and less protective melanocytes.

Nd:YAG laser hair removal can be done on all skin colors, but those with darker ones can benefit from the proprietary technology that is used in VIA Health & Medspa. It significantly reduces the risk of burns in the surrounding tissue. You will be thoroughly assessed during consultations to determine the best treatment plan for your beautiful skin.
In terms of hair type, laser hair removal works best on coarse, thick hair rather than fine, downy types. Patients with light blonde, red, silver, or white body hair have fewer laser options since there is not enough underlying pigment for the beam to target. However, VIA Health & Medspa has the appropriate technology that is effective for lighter hair.
Age is often a consideration since hormone changes later in life can influence hair texture and growth patterns. Most patients begin laser hair removal in their 20s-40s when unwanted growth is consistent. However, with parental consent, teenage clients can also achieve great results with laser treatments. For older individuals, a consultation with Dr. Fayad will help to set expectations based on skin elasticity and follicle sensitivity, which naturally diminish over time.

Benefits of Nd:YAG Laser Hair Removal

Here are the main advantages of removing unwanted hair using the Nd:YAG technology:

It Can Be Done Anywhere on the Body

Unlike traditional laser hair removal techniques that can only treat small or certain areas, Nd:YAG devices make it possible to eliminate unwanted growth virtually anywhere on the body. Zones that can be targeted include the legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, chest, and back – essentially anywhere except for some high-risk places. Therefore, Nd:YAG treatment is extremely versatile.
Nd:YAG devices are safe and effective for almost all skin types. People with fair, dark, and tanned skin can undergo successful treatment.
The longer wavelength of the Nd:YAG laser makes it possible for the beam to penetrate deeper into the dermis, where the root of the follicle is located. As a result, it can effectively damage the follicle to prevent future growth.
The reduced melanin absorption of Nd:YAG allows for safer use on darker skin tones and a lower risk of burning or hyperpigmentation.
The Nd:YAG laser uses larger spot sizes, allowing it to treat hair more quickly over larger body areas, like the legs or back.
