When it comes to unwanted hair removal, most people rely on shaving, tweezing, waxing, and plucking. Solutions like shaving and waxing are far from efficient or painless. If you want to achieve almost 100% hair removal for life, you may want to consider laser hair removal in Portland. Phoenix Skin and Laser uses cutting-edge laser technologies to remove unwanted hair within a few short sessions, helping you achieve smooth, hair-free skin.
About Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective hair removal methods available. You can say goodbye to unwanted hair for life with a few zaps from a laser device. The procedure involves using a specialized device to emit calibrated wavelengths of light energy into your skin. The light energy enters the pigment in your hair follicles and destroys the unwanted hair, so it can’t grow again. You can achieve almost completely hair-free skin within a few sessions.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
To understand how laser hair removal works, you must also understand how hair grows. The human hair grows in three progressive stages — anagen (growing phase), catagen (regressing phase), and telogen (resting phase). Different hair follicles on your body are at different stages of the growth cycle, and only 20% of the hairs are at the anagen stage at any given moment. Each hair cycles through the entire growth phase, falls out, and new hairs grow again.
Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicles in the anagen phase. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in your hair, which essentially destroys the hair follicles in the anagen phase, i.e., the hairs still connected to the root. Once the hair follicle is destroyed, it can’t grow again. That’s why your hair grows out finer and sparser after each laser hair removal in Portland session. But you need multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve completely hair-free skin.
