The Xlase Plus laser works by directing the energy from a near infra-red light through the hairs you want removed to the hair follicle beneath your skin’s surface. The heat from the laser damages the follicle without hurting the surrounding skin cells. This damage stops the follicle from growing new hair and causes the existing hair to fall out.
Because each hair on your body grows in a cycle made up of three phases, it’s important that we carry out a series of treatments to treat as many hair follicles in their active (anagen) growth phase as possible. You may notice some hair growth from the follicles that were dormant during your treatment, but this should be a lot sparser than in the past.
