At Any Given Time, Up To 30% Of The Hair Is In The Active Phase. The Remaining Dormant Hair, Takes Between 3 Week To 3 Months To Become Active. Therefore, In Order To Enjoy Permanent Results, One Must Undertake A Series Of Sessions Offer A 3-6 Week Interval, Depending On Your Hair Growth Pattern. When Will The Results Be Visible? Usually, Results Are Visible After 2-3 Sessions. This May Vary From Person To Person. During The Weeks Following A Session, You May Notice Hair. This Is Not A Sign Of Early Growth.

Why Does Laser Hair Reduction Not Sure About 100% Hair Removal?

Which Have Covered By Our Two Years Maintenance Warranty Card Or Life Time Maintenance Card As Per Your Choice.

Skin And Hair Biology

Skin Performs Many Important Functions Such As Supporting And Covering The Underlying Tissues, Protecting The Body From Infections, Regulating Body Temperature, Maintaining Water And Electrolyte Balance, Sensing Painful And Pleasant Stimuli, Excretion Of Waste Materials, Production Of Vitamin-D, And Growing Hair Via Hair Follicles.
The Skin Keeps Dangerous Substances From Entering The Body And Provides A Shield From The Suns Harmful Effects. In Addition, Skin Color, Texture, And Folds Help To Accentuate An Individual’s Identity And Uniqueness.
Significant In Many Of These Properties Is The Hair Follicle Appendage. The Key Role Of Hair Is To Provide Protection Against Heat Loss From The Scalp. Over One Third Of All Heat Loss From A Human Body Passes From The Head. Hair Traps Air Adjacent To The Skin To Provide An Invisible, Insulating Layer. Specialized Hair Such As Eyebrows And Eyelashes Protect The Eyes By Channeling Or Sweeping Away Fluids, Dust And Debris. Nasal Hair Plays An Important Role In Blocking Access To Insects Before They Reach The Lungs. Hair Fiber May Also Increase The Surface Area For Faster Evaporation Of Sweat From Neighboring Apocrine Glands. Some Hair Follicles Have A Highly Developed Nerve Network Around Them And Provide Sensory And Tactile Information About The Environment. Consequently, While Hair Is Less Important To Human Survival, The Hair Follicle Is Of Great Importance To The Survival Of Most Mammals.

Each Hair Grows From A Follicle Deep In Your Skin. As Long As These Follicles Are Not Completely Destroyed, Hair Will Continue To Grow Even If The Shaft, Which Is The Part Of The Hair That Appears Above The Skin, Is Plucked Or Removed. Hair Follicles Cover Every Surface Of Your Body Except The Soles Of Your Feet And The Palms Of Your Hands. Of The Approximately 50 Million Hair Follicles Covering Human Body, One-fifth Are Located On The Scalp. The Number Of Hair Follicles You Have Does Not Change After Birth. However, Many People Experience A Slow Decrease In Hair Follicle Number From Around Age 50 Onwards.
Hair Growth And Hair Loss Is Random Although There Can Be A Somewhat Cyclical Nature As Hair Is Often Shed At A Slightly Higher Rate Than Normal In The Spring And Fall As Compared To Summer And Winter. In General, At Any Given Time, A Random Number Of Hairs Will Be In Various Stages Of Growth And Shedding. Adults Have Two Main Types Of Hair, Vellus And Terminal. Vellus Hair Is Soft, Fine, Generally Colorless, And Usually Short. Terminal Hair Is Long, Coarse, Dark, And Sometimes Curly. Terminal Hair Is Made By Large Hair Follicles In The Skin While Small Vellus Hair Correspondingly Comes From Very Small Hair Follicles.

Hirsutism

What Is Hirsutism?
Hirsutism Is A Condition In Which Too Much Hair Grows On The Face Or Body. Hirsutism Can Occur In Both Men And Women, But Unlike Beard Hirsutism In Men, Which Can Suggest Masculinity And Virility, Female Hirsutism Is Not Seen As A Desirable Trait And It Is Considered As A Problem.
Women Who Have Hirsutism Have Dark, Thick Hair On Their Face, Chest, Abdomen And Back. This Thick, Dark Hair Is Different From The Fine Hair That Some Women Have On Their Upper Lip, Chin, Breasts Or Stomach, Or The "baby" Vellus Hair All Over Their Body. Women From Certain Ethnic Groups Tend To Have More Body Hair Than Others. This Does Not Mean That They Have Hirsutism, Rather It May Be The Normal State For Some People Depending On Their Ethnicity. For Example, Women With A Mediterranean Background Are More Likely To Have Higher, Normal Level Of Body Hair. In Contrast Women Of East Asian Extraction Tend To Have Much Less Body Hair.
Hirsutism Is A Condition Where The Normally Small, Vellus Body Hair Follicles Of An Individual Respond To Hormones By Increasing Their Size And Shape And Start To Produce Large, Pigmented Hair Fibers. The Vellus Hair Follicles Turn Into Terminal Hair Follicles In Response To Androgen Hormones. Because Hair Follicles That Are Androgen Responsive Are Only Present In A Certain Pattern Over The Skin, Hirsutism Is Only Seen In Certain Areas Such As The Beard And Moustache Area.
Hirsutism Is Very Common And Often Improves With Medical Management. Prompt Medical Attention Is Important, Because Delaying Treatment Makes Successful Treatment More Difficult And The Development Of Hirsutism May Have Long-term Health Consequences Depending On What Is Causing It.

Causes Of Hirsutism

There Are Several Causes Of Hirsutism Ranging From High Levels Of Androgens Or Male Hormones In The Blood To The Side Effects Of Medicines. The Following Are Some Of The Reasons Which Can Cause Hirsutism.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS Is Caused Due To Excessive Production Of Androgens By The Ovaries. It Is A Common Cause Of Hirsutism And It Is Frequently (though Not Always) Associated With Irregular Or Absent Ovulation And Infertility.
Unexplained Hirsutism (idiopathic Hirsutism)
For Unknown Reasons, Some Women Have Hair Follicles That Are Abnormally Sensitive To Androgens. Androgen Levels Are Normal And Menstrual Periods Occur Regularly In These Patients. This Tendency To Develop Hirsutism Seems To Be Genetic, But The Cause Is Not Known.
Non-Classic Adrenal Hyperplasia
The Most Common Abnormality Of The Adrenal Glands That Can Result In Hirsutism Is A Disorder Called Non-classic Adrenal Hyperplasia (NCAH). This Condition Causes The Adrenal Glands To Overproduce Androgens. The Adrenals Are Small Glands That Sit On Top Of The Kidneys And They Play An Important Role In Regulating Hormone Production. In Women, They Are The Main Source Of Androgen Hormones.
HAIR-AN Syndrome (Hyperandrogenism, Insulin Resistance, Acanthosis Nigricans)
Some Women Are Born With Insulin Resistance, A Severe Defect In The Ability Of Insulin To Control Blood Sugar Levels. To Compensate, The Pancreas Produces More Insulin. Excessively High Levels Of Insulin Stimulate The Ovaries To Dramatically Overproduce Androgens This Can Lead To A Variety Of Androgenic Effects Including Hirsutism, Scalp Hair Loss, Acne, And Irregular Ovulation.

Syndrome

Cushing’s Syndrome
Cushing’s Syndrome Refers To Over Production Of Cortisol By The Adrenal Glands. Although Hirsutism May Be Seen In Cushing’s Syndrome Patients, It Is Not A Primary Feature Of The Disorder And There Are Several Other Symptoms With A Greater Impact On Health That Usually Occur As A Result Of Cushing’s Syndrome. Cushing’s Syndrome Is A Serious, But Rare Disease.
Ovarian Or Adrenal Tumors
On Rare Occasions, An Androgen-producing Tumor May Develop In The Ovaries Or Adrenal Glands. This Tumor May Produce Extremely High Androgen Levels. Symptoms, Such As Hirsutism Or Sclap Hair Loss, Usually Appear Suddenly And Progress Quickly.
Menopause
Around The Time Of Menopause, The Ovaries Stop Producing Estrogen, But They Continue To Produce Androgens. Estrogens Are Antagonistic To Androgens And Restrain The Effects Of Androgens On The Body. The Decreased Levels Of Estrogen After Menopause May Allow The Androgens To Have A Greater Impact, Leading To An Increase In The Number Of Dark Terminal Hairs, Especially On The Face.

Side Effects

Medication Side Effects
Drugs With Characteristics Of Androgens May Cause Hirsutism. Anabolic Steroids, Used For Increasing The Muscle Mass Of Chronically Ill And Debilitated People, And By Some Bodybuilders, Are Chemically Related To Androgens. Some Older Forms Of Birth Control Pill Are Also Androgenic And Can Cause Hirsutism. Some Vasodilatory Drugs Used In Heart Diease Can Also Cause Hirsutism.
Methods Of Treatments Of Hirsutism
From Many Available Treatments For Hisutism, We Can Classify These Treatments Into Two Categories; The First Is Medical Therapy And The Other Is Cosmetic Therapy.
Medical Therapy
There Are A Variety Of Specific Medical And Clinical Treatments That Are Recommended Based On Diagnosis And Severity Of Hirsutism. Most Medications Used To Treat Hirsutism Are Approved By The Food And Drug Administration In The USA, But They May Not Be Approved Specifically For The Treatment Of Hirsutism

Temporary

Temporary Hair Removal Techniques Have Lasting Effects For Several Hours To Several Days. Temporary Hair Removal Can Be Achieved Through Depilation In Which Hair Above The Skin Surface Is Removed Or Epilation In Which Entire Hair Is Removed. Depilation Has Lasting Effects For Some Hours Whereas Epilation Has Lasting Effects For Some Days. These Two Temporary Hair Removal Techniques Are Described As Follows:
Depilation:
Shaving Or Trimming With Manual Or Electric Shavers. Chemical Depilatories Which Are Normally Creams Or "shaving Powders" Which Chemically Dissolve Hair. Abrasion Using Rough Surfaces Used To Buff Away Hair
Epilation:
Tweezing Waxing In Which A Hot Or Cold Layer Of Wax Based Formula Is Applied, Covered With Porous Strips Of Material And Then Removed Sugaring, This Is Very Similar To Waxing, But A Sticky Paste Is Used Made From Sugar, Water, And Lemon Juice. Threading, Also Sometimes Called Fatlah Or Khite, Involves Using A Twisted Thread That Catches Hairs As The Threads Are Rolled Across The Skin Rotary Electric Epilators Which Rapidly Grasp Hairs And Pull Them Out By The Root

Permanent Hair Removal

There Are Two Types Of Permanent Hair Removal: Electrolysis And Laser Treatment. During Electrolysis, A Very Fine Needle Is Inserted Into The Hair Follicle. A Mild Electric Current Is Sent Through The Needle. Modern Electrolysis Machines Usually Work In Tow Ways To Remove The Hair. The Electricity Directly Damages The Cells In The Hair Follicle, Plus The Electrical Energy Effectively “cooks” The Hair Follicle Tissue To Permanently Destroy The Hair Follicle’s Ability To Produce Hair. Since Follicles Are Treated One At A Time, It Is Somewhat Impractical To Use Electrolysis To Treat Very Large Areas Of The Body. Laser Treatments May Be Used On Large Areas Of The Body, Although Their Long Term Effectiveness Is Not As Well Documented As Electrolysis. During Laser Hair Treatment, A Beam Of Light Is Passed Through The Skin To The Hair Follicle To Destroy It. With Lasers, The Light Energy Is Absorbed By Pigments In The Hair Follicle And The Energy Is Converted To Heat. As The Hair Follicle Heats Up It Gets Cooked And This Destroys The Hair Follicle And Its Ability To Grow Hair Fiber. People With Light Skin And Dark Hair Usually Achieve The Best Results With Laser Hair Removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work
Laser Treatment Works On The Principle That Dark Objects Absorb More Light. Think About Going Out On A Sunny Day Wearing A Black T Shirt Versus Going Out On The Same Day Wearing A White T Shirt. The White T Shirt Reflects Light And Stays Cooler, But The Back T Shirt Absorbs Light And Makes Your Body Feel Hotter. Similarly Laser Energy Is Absorbed By Dark Material Present In The Skin. This Dark Target Matter, Or Chromophore, Can Be Naturally-occurring Or Artificially Introduced.
The Laser Beam Used In The Laser Hair Removal Device Is Directed At The Hair Follicles. The Dark Pigments In The Follicle Absorb The Laser Light Energy, But The Relatively Less Pigmented Skin Does Not Absorb The Light Energy; In Fact, Energy Dissipates. The Follicle Absorbs More And More Energy And Heats Up. Ultimately The Follicle Dies And Can No Longer Grow Hair.
The Primary Principle Behind Laser Hair Removal Is Selective Photothermolysis. Lasers Can Cause Localized Damage By Selectively Heating Dark Target Matter In The Area That Causes Hair Growth While Not Heating The Rest Of The Skin. Laser And Light-based Methods Are Sometimes Called Phototricholysis Or Photoepilation.

Hair Removal Work

Melanin Is Considered The Primary Chromophore For Most Lasers Currently Available In The U.S. Market. However, If There Is Little Or No Melanin Pigment In The Hair Follicles Then Pigment Can Be Artificially Introduced To The Hair Follicle. Laser Light Can Also Be Absorbed By Other Kinds Of Pigment In The Skin. Consequently, Hair Removal Lasers Can Selectively Target Several Chromophores: Carbon, Which Is Introduced Into The Follicle By Rubbing A Carbon-based Lotion Into The Skin Following Waxing (this Lotion Is An Exogenous Chromophore). When Irradiated By An Nd:YAG Laser, The Carbon Causes A Shock Wave Capable Of Mechanically Damaging Nearby Cells. Hemoglobin, Which Occurs Naturally In Blood (it Gives Blood Its Red Color). It Preferentially Absorbs Wavelengths From Argons, And To A Lesser Extent From Rubies, Alexandrites, And Diodes. It Minimally Absorbs The Nd:YAG Laser Wavelength. Melanin, Which Occurs Naturally In The Skin (it Gives Skin And Hair Its Color). There Are Two Types Of Melanin In Hair: Eumelanin (which Gives Hair Brown Or Black Color) And Pheomelanin (which Gives Hair Blonde Or Red Color). Eumelanin Is Better Targeted By Lasers As It Is A Darker Pigment.
