Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal technology has made recent advances based on clinical studies for aesthetic application. Before, laser technologies could only target black hair because the black color pigment could only absorb certain laser beams. Now, laser technology like Primelase can target all hair colors – like black, brown, blonde, and red – because it uses multiple laser beam depths that can absorb into multiple color pigment types.

How Laser Hair Removal Works
The first step in laser hair removal by Primelase is cleaning the treatment area and applying a cooling gel to prepare the skin. Once the cooling gel has been applied, laser hair removal can begin. Depending on the size of the treatment area, one session may take 20-45 minutes.
Primelase laser hair removal works by rapidly heating hair follicles down to the root. This type of laser heat does NOT burn the skin because the applicator emits a cooler temperature near the surface – 25°C. The higher temperatures are emitted from the laser further away from the applicator, down to the hair root – 80°C. The heat from the diode laser causes the melanin (pigment color) to swell and fracture the hair follicle. When the hair follicle is fractured, the hair can’t grow anymore. However, hair grows in cycles – like skin. So laser hair removal requires 3-5 sessions to treat all hair follicles during the different stages of growth cycles. Treatment by Primelase results in permanent hair removal within a short amount of time without pain.
