Laser Hair Removal
OVERVIEW OF OUR CANDELA ALEXANDRITE LASER
Alexandrite laser hair removal procedure uses a specific wavelength of energy to pinpoint and destroy dark hair follicles without damaging the tissue around them.
Alexandrite laser hair removal can permanently reduce unwanted hair
almost anywhere it appears, chin,
upper lip, back and shoulder area,
the bikini line, legs, and underarms,
but the Alexandrite laser treatment is not used to remove hair around the eyes because of the laser potential damage
can do to the eyes.
Each hair follicle goes through a continuous, three-stage cycle (growing, resting and shedding), and Alexandrite laser hair removal targets only those
hairs that are in the growing stage.
Since each individual follicle is on its own schedule, each treatment session can effectively remove the growing hair
follicles but will leave behind those
follicles that are in the resting or
shedding stage. For best results, multiple sessions are usually required.
Due to the nature of laser hair removal technology, Alexandrite laser hair treatment isn't for everyone. Because the laser targets dark pigmentation, the
hair in question must be darker than the skin surrounding it. Therefore, the ideal candidates are people with light skin and dark hair. People with tanned skin, naturally dark skin and people with blonde, red or white hair are not good candidates for Alexandrite laser hair removal.
