Why choose Body Beautiful Laser medi spa Laser Hair Removal Glossary

Why We GuaranteeOur Work

We only use the best state-of-the-art lasers, so you only need 4-6 treatments to maximize hair removal. Other companies require more time and money because they use inferior lasers. Everybody has different types of hair, book a consultation now to determine your best options.

Aesthetic Lasers target specific chromophores (color) in the skin, usually melanin or blood. The lasers damage the chromophores by selectively heating them while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. When treating unwanted hair, for example, the melanin in the hair follicles is targeted and damaged which results in the disruption of hair growth and regeneration. Our diode, Nd Yag, and IPL lasers are complemented by cooling technology and other pain reducing techniques.

Before and after back hair laser hair removalThe human body is covered with millions of hair follicles, each independently cycling through the three phases of the hair-growth cycle. Lips, soles of the feet and palms of the hands are among the limited places on the human body where hair is not found. Human hair growth occurs randomly. Although hair is dead material (mainly the protein keratin), it and the follicles that produce it are part of the body’s epidural or skin structure.

Our MaxR and LuxR are used for darker hair reduction on light to medium skin. The MaxY and LuxY are used for blonde hair removal, on lighter skin types.

Additional Shaving Fee May Apply
Your selected area should be shaved before coming in for your first session. There is a fee if we need to perform this service for you:

10 for small areas
25 for medium
50 for large
75 for extra large areas

We do not need to see where the hair is growing. Our trained professionals are looking at the root (under the skin), to permanently shut down the future hair growth. Hair left on the surface can increase the risk of burning.
“Don’t worry” its a myth, when you shave it will not come back thicker and darker. If this was true, bald men across the country would shave their head hoping it would come in thicker and darker “You can’t change genetics”.
It is also best to clean the area before coming in of make-up, antiperspirants, etc. It is especially important to avoid products that have self-tanners, bronzer, including make-up that can “tint” the skin tone.
If you’ve had laser hair removal done elsewhere and were dissatisfied with the results, we may be able to help. If you require more than 6 treatments, we can do additional treatments at a discounted ‘maintenance’ or ‘touch-up’ price.

 

body beautiful performs laser hair removalAnagen
The anagen hair phase is the only one that can cauterize the blood supply to the hair, thus causing the hair follicle to die, so it won’t produce that individual hair that was killed.

Approximately 80 percent to 90 percent of a healthy individual’s hair is in the anagen phase, a time when the hair is actively growing.

Catagen
The catagen phase is a short period of transition between the anagen and telogen phases. This phase lasts only one to three weeks. However, near the end of the catagen stage, movement of the dermal papilla occurs, setting the stage for hair re-growth.

Telogen
The solving of mysteries in many detective shows and stories, as well as real-life crimes, often hinge on the forensic analysis of hairs left behind by the perpetrator. These hairs are generally shed during the telogen phase. In fact, humans lose between 50 and 150 scalp hairs each day. During this phase, hairs are only anchored by friction between the club-shaped root and the follicle. According to the FBI Hair, Fiber, Crime and Evidence Report, these hairs shed easily and when examined have undamaged roots. It takes force to remove hair during the anagen phase. The telogen phase lasts approximately two or three months, a resting phase before the growth phase returns.

hair follicles Anagen, Catagen, Telogen,Hair Follicles
Hair has two distinct structures – first, the follicle itself, which resides in the skin, and second, the shaft, which is what is visible above the scalp. The hair follicle is a tunnel-like segment of the epidermis that extends down into the dermis. The structure contains several layers that all have separate functions. At the base of the follicle is the papilla, which contains capillaries, or tiny blood vessels that nourish the cells. The living part of the hair is the very bottom part surrounding the papilla, called the bulb. The cells of the bulb divide every 23 to 72 hours, remarkably faster than any other cell in the body.

Hair Shafts
The hair shaft is made of a hard protein called keratin and is made in three layers. This protein is actually dead, so the hair that you see is not a living structure. The inner layer is the medulla. The second layer is the cortex and the outer layer is the cuticle. The cortex makes up the majority of the hair shaft. The cuticle is a tightly formed structure made of shingle-like overlapping scales. It is both the cortex and the medulla that holds the hair’s pigment, giving it color.

hair follicles Hair ShaftsHirsutism
Hirsutism refers to excessive hair growth on the body. Excessive hair growth can be much more than just a cosmetic problem for some individuals. For women, it means an overabundance of androgens in the blood. Excessive hair growth is a combination of too many androgens and an enzyme in the hair follicle that is very sensitive to abnormal amounts of hormones. Men produce much larger quantities of testosterone than females, their excess hair growth can be more extreme.
