Phases of the hair follicle

Hair follicle grows in three phases:

  • Anagen (growing phase)
  • Catagen ( resting phase)
  • Telogen (shedding phase)

At a particular time only growing follicles are targeted by the laser as they contain maximum melanin pigment and 70% hair in the resting phase continue to grow. A laser light would either destroy the growing follicle or may make it dormant. After an interval of 4-6 weeks (depending on the body part) 30% of hair would again fall in the growing phase and a repeat session would target these follicles. Therefore a number of sessions are required to attain maximum benefits.

 

Number of sessions

  • Maximum 8-10 sessions are required for optimum results.
  • In hormonal imbalance a medical line of treatment is suggested along with the laser. Number of sessions in such cases are definitely more and maintenance may be required.
  • The amount of reduction is about 60-80%.

Absolute Contraindications

  1. Epilepsy.
  2. Pregnancy.
  3. Treatment with Isotretinoin recently.
  4. Metal implants on the area to be treated.
