How Laser Works for Hair and Tattoo Removal

If you were to list the most popular non-surgical procedures in the world, laser hair removal will top the list hands down. Though the overall hair reduction may vary from person to person, it is mostly permanent. Lasers are common enough and you already have them in your DVD player, your PC and in the TV's remote control. But the laser used in the laser clinic is far more potent than laser found in these gadgets. These lasers discharge pulses of light that get absorbed by the melanin present in the hair and destroy the hair root. If surrounding skin is lighter then energy gets concentrated on the hair shaft and does not affect skin much.

It you think that someone with fair skin and dark hair is more likely to benefit from the laser hair removal, then you’re right. Except that laser is effective only when hair follicles are in their active growth phase. Since hair in a particular area has different growth stages, you will need at least 8-10 sittings for a complete treatment. There are more than one type of lasers for hair removal so even if one does not work for you, other will.

The same principle works in laser tattoo removal. Here the pulses of laser are absorbed by the coloured ink which is then broken down and absorbed by the body where immune system takes care of it. If you have a coloured tattoo with more than more than one colour then it will take more pulses of varied frequency or strength according to the colour. It will also take longer as coloured ink absorbs only a part of the light.

Good and reputable clinics like Medispa at Shrewsbury tell you whether you a candidate for this treatment or not. Individuals with red, white, gray or light blonde hair don’t get very effective results. However, skin colour doesn't make a difference. As there are several different lasers available for hair removal, as long as your hair is darker than the skin you can benefit from laser hair removal.
