Laser Hair Removal in Edmonton | Permanent Hair Removal Is Possible

When people talk to Edmonton dermatology about laser hair removal in Edmonton. They will have a free consultation, in order to find out all of the specifics. And how it relates to their specific body.

How laser hair removal in Edmonton works. Is by using an intense pulse light treatment, also known as IPL. Which is a non-ablative laser. That targets the pigmentation in the hair follicles themselves.

When this laser finds the pigmentation in those hair follicles. The laser will literally explode the cells in the hair follicle. Which destroys it, and the body will need to regrow the entire hair follicle again.

The first treatment is not permanent however. The body will try to regrow those hair follicles. But once the body does start growing here in that area. That is when patients can come in for their second treatment.

That second treatment will again, destroy the newly formed hair follicles. And it will take the body a lot longer. To grow the new hair follicles a second time. It may take several weeks or even a few months.

And when patients see that the hair is growing in that area once more. They will come in for their third treatment. However, depending on what part of the body has been treated.

After the second laser hair removal in Edmonton treatment. Patients may find that the hair that was growing in that area. Is not growing back even after several months.

That continually gets destroyed. Therefore, patients who are looking to get their hair removed permanently. Will want to ask their dermatologist. If this area of the body is likely going to require a few, or several treatments.

That way, they can be prepared for the right number of treatments. There are other things that they should keep in mind, such as avoiding plucking or waxing for two weeks before their first laser treatment.

The reason why they should avoid this, is because the laser is designed to target the pigmentation. In the hair follicles, and if they have plucked, or waxed. Those hair follicles will be gone.

Therefore, the laser treatment will not work on the follicles that are not there. By avoiding anything that pulls the hairs out by the roots. Before the laser treatment, will help make it effective.

As well, patients should keep in mind. That one day before their first laser hair removal in Edmonton treatment. They should shave the area. So that there is as little hair above their skin as possible.
