Although we are accustomed to saying ‘permanent hair removal’, it is more accurate to use the term ‘permanent hair reduction’ when discussing laser hair removal because for some people up to 10% of hair will not be permanently destroyed by laser treatments.
In few cases where hair does grow back, the hair that grows in will be lighter and finer.
Hair that stubbornly refuses to respond to laser treatments can be dealt with using electrolysis, so permanent hair removal can be achieved for every person.
Electrolysis is a process used to treat unwanted hair by applying a small amount of electrical current to the base of individual hair follicles with the gentle insertion of a specialized, single use, sterile disposable probe. The energy from this current destroys the growth center of the hair follicle called the papilla, making this an effective permanent method of hair removal. The Champion Laser & Electrolysis Clinic is a cosmetic-medical center offering only certified result-oriented hair removal services for both men and women. Our team includes certified technicians, nurses and specialized skin and laser consultants
While lasers offer control and efficiency for hair removal in large areas, such as the back and legs, electrolysis is useful for touch-up of stray hairs, and is considered highly effective for use in treating small and sensitive areas such as the upper lip and eyebrows. At Champion Laser & Electrolysis Centre we use both technologies to achieve the most effective results in the least amount of treatments.
If you are considering hair removal, it is important to understand that in order for treatments to be effective, it is crucial to follow the recommended treatment schedule.
Hair grows in continuous cycles; it goes through stages of growth that start at active, progress to a regressive stage of atrophy and then a stage where hair falls out. Appointments will be scheduled to align with the timing of your next hair growth cycle. In order to achieve permanent reduction, the hair follicle should be treated during the active stage of hair growth, when the target parameters necessary for permanent hair destruction are present. Since only about 15-25% of hairs are in this active growing stage at the same time, repeated sessions are necessary to synchronize with your active growth cycle.
Numerous factors determine the number of treatments, as well as the length of each treatment. Since it is necessary to time treatments with these cycles, multiple sessions are necessary. A treatment plan is developed after the initial consultation at Champion Laser & Electrolysis Centre
