How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Dr. Zenovia understands just how annoying the daily grind of removing unwanted hair can be, and she also knows how liberating it is to be hair-free. She’s helped thousands of patients throw away razors, smelly depilatory creams, and waxing kits with laser hair removal. Technology has improved so much in recent years that laser hair removal has more chance of success than ever before.
At ZENA Medical, our laser experts use the Clarity laser by Lutronic, a dual-wavelength laser designed to target more hair for faster treatments that can reduce hair growth by up to 25% with each treatment. Clarity delivers a combination of two heavy hitting wavelengths, long-pulsed 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG, with a variety of features and settings to maximize the effectiveness against most types of unwanted hair. Laser light is absorbed by the pigment in hair follicles, and when that energy, called selective photothermolysis, builds enough heat, the follicle is damaged alongside related stem cells and dermal papillae, resulting in the death of the follicle and preventing future growth. Clarity is capable of lightning fast repetition rates, precision pulse widths from .35 ms to 300 ms, and large spot sizes. This means even large areas, such as the legs or back, can be treated quickly and effectively without damaging surrounding tissues.
Clarity is safe for most skin types, and while the number of treatments you’ll need to remove unwanted hair depends on your hair’s thickness and color, and your skin color, the customizable nature of Clarity helps ZENA Medical laser specialists achieve your goals faster than with any other laser system. Most patients require 6 treatments to remove unwanted hair, and ZENA Medical will optimize your results through a personalized treatment plan.
