Laser hair removal GentleLASE PRO
Laser hair removal is based on the thermal effect which is shown as follows: there is a dark pigment-melanin which absorbs light laser radiation. While absorbing laser energy a sharp heat throughout hair takes places. An instant temperature increase destroys hair follicle and the derooted hair stops growing. A laser is fitted with software, which allows to set the laser set so that it distributes an impulse strictly dosed by intensity and duration.
The follicle manages to die and the surrounding tissues remain unaffected.
The peculiarity of laser hair removal is that within one procedure laser impulses affect just on those hair which are actively growing at the time of the procedure. Not more than the fifth part of all hair is in such state. Accordingly hair in “sleep” state cannot be affected by laser.
