The laser light is directed at and gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair itself, which sits in the hair follicle. When the laser light gets absorbed, it creates heat. If enough heat is generated down the hair follicle, it will destroy the hair growth centre in the follicle. If the hair growth centre is destroyed, you should not create a new hair.
Body hair goes through a resting and growth cycle, which is why a series of follow-up treatments are scheduled every 4-6 weeks.
When the hair is in a resting portion of the cycle, it may not be able to absorb enough laser light or generate enough heat to destroy the hair growth centre. This means is that you have to laser multiple times -– usually about 6 sessions ― to remove a substantial portion of the hair from an area.

Maggie Botha was first diagnosed with Rosacea at the age of 27. Dermatologist Dr Lizmare Brönn referred her to Lasermed in 2017. Now entering her second year of three IPL sessions per year, Maggie has had the most incredible result. The visible redness is gone, no more broken facial veins and her complexion is more even. Together with the IPL, Maggie started using the NeoStrata skincare range (specifically the Bio-Hydrating Cream). She commented that this was a must for every Rosacea patient. “Lasermed and Penny Jenkinson have changed my life!”
