The Growing Success of Hair Removal Laser Treatments

If you have unwanted hair on your face or body, you’re hardly alone. And rather than dealing with the hassle and expense of things like shaving or waxing, hair removal laser treatments can be a far better option for keeping your hair issues permanently away. The most effective type of laser hair removal is BBL (broadband light) laser treatment, which uses technology that employs light to penetrate the skin and damage the actual hair follicle itself without causing permanent harm to the surrounding area. The team at Coyle Institute have become trusted leaders in the industry for their expertise in permanent hair removal using BBL to achieve lasting results.

Bikini laser hair removal, permanent facial hair removal, and laser hair removal of hair on the legs and arms are among the most popular BBL permanent hair removal treatments. What makes the BBL so effective is the type of technology involved and the targeted precision of the light. Women struggling with unwanted hair or excessive hair growth, that efficacy and immediacy can be the very solution they’ve been searching for.

Splitting Hairs: What’s the Difference?

BBL hair removal laser therapy is fully customizable to fit the needs of women with different skin types as well as different hair types. Even skin color can affect how many treatments may be needed, so a consultation will be needed to determine your own specific needs and discuss a plan for you.

The reason for this is simple: pigment. Not only the pigment of the skin but also the pigment of the hair. The heat sources in a laser are attracted to higher amounts of pigment, or melanin, which means that the darker the hair and the darker the skin, the greater amount of light energy is produced by the laser, yielding higher results. Blonde hair is often finer and has less pigment. Individuals with blonde hair are usually fair-skinned, as well, which means that laser hair removal treatments are less effective than they are for dark haired individuals with olive skin or light skin. Interestingly enough, very dark complexions can be even more of a challenge for laser hair removal because the variation between the color of the skin and the color of the hair is too little, making the laser unable to distinguish between the two. In such cases, the skin surrounding the hair follicles can actually be damaged by the laser, leading to discoloration or permanent scarring. In addition, hair removal laser treatments are more effective for thicker hair, as the melanin in the hair follicles is higher than that in thinner or finer hair.

Where’s the Hair?

Permanent hair removal will require several sessions to remove unwanted hair completely. Because of changing hair growth cycles and follicle thickness, permanent results will not be immediate. The first three laser hair removal treatments will usually be done in interims of 4 to 6 weeks, and most people will start to see noticeable results within their first six months of treatment.
