Why do you need multiple Sessions?
You need multiple sessions for laser hair removal in Islamabad. Many patients ask why multiple sessions are required?
If laser technique works why can the entire treatment not be completed in a single session? In order to understand this, we must understand how the hair growth cycle works. Normally hair growth occurs in 3 cycles. So, laser can only be effective if use it in the right cycle or phase for treatment.
Three cycles of Hair Growth are:
This is the first and the most visible phase of the hair growth cycle. This is the phase when laser work best for removing hair. During this phase the follicle are mostly exposed because the body hair is above the skin.
This is the second of phase. This phase is between the growth stage of Anagen and the rest phase that is telogen. During this stage hair will leave papilla from your skin where the hair is attached. During this cycle people typically shed their hair and it comes out during sleep or grooming yourself. Laser treatment normally does not work during this phase or cycle, As the hair detaches before the laser can travel down it to the follicle. It is the shortest phase as this only last for about 2-3 days.
This is the third and final phase. During this phase hair sheds and the follicles become dormant. It is also known as the rest phase. Comparing to other phases of the hair cycle the telogen phase may last as long as it required. Sometimes it can last for few days, Other time it may last for a few years. During this stage laser cannot affect the follicle.
To successfully treat the entire part of the face or body of all skin types with laser treatments. Hari must be treated while in anagen stage. Typically, a patient can expect anywhere from 10% to 25% of his/her hair to be in the anagen at any time, which is why patients generally see reduction of 10% to 25% of hair growth after a successful session.
In the first 48 hours after your treatment, you should wear loos clothes that is not tight on the area that was treated. You should also need to avoid touching the skin that has been treated and apply 100% Aloe Vera to it.
It takes more than one session because the sessions give your hair enough time to move from one stage to the next to properly get rid of. It is possible that some hair can stay in the telogen stage for more than one month or may be years before hair growing again occurs.
