Laser hair removal first became available in the mid-1990s.
elight technology is the most recent advancement in laser hair removal. It is a dual energy treatment, whereby the hair follicle is first pre-heated by light, and then, radio frequency (RF) radiation is applied. Because RF does not require a chromophore target, this was the first technology that studies have shown to be effective at treating light-colored hair, including white or grey. The efficacy is lower when treating light-colored hair.
The whole course typically lasting 4-6 weeks, the number of treatments necessary and the interval between treatments depends upon the area of the body being treated. Only hair in the anagen or growing phases is able to be effectively treated. Hair in the telogen (resting phase) or catagen (the phase between anagen and telogen) does not have a mature enough follicle to be effectively treated.
The length of time spent in each phase depends upon the location of the hair. On the scalp, hair follicles spend up to 10 years in anagen, but on the trunk, brow, and limbs, anagen lasts no longer than 6 months. Catagen lasts only 2-3 weeks, and telogen lasts from 3-4 months. Explaining the need for multiple treatments, the correct timing of treatments and the inability to remove hair 100% help achieve good results and maintain patient satisfaction.
