What is Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of removing unwanted hair.
A laser beam travels through the skin and is attracted to the pigment in the hair.
The energy then flows to the hair follicle growth cells to inhibit further hair growth.

The hair removal by laser depends on the principle of selective photothermolysis which is the gradual heating of hair.
When the right wavelength of the laser is applied to the desired treatment area the melanin in the hair
absorbs the laser which converted into thermal energy.
The increases of thermal energy cause the destruction of hair follicles, while the surrounding skin is undamaged.
Some follicles will only be damaged or may regrow, so numerous treatments are required to reduce
or eliminate unwanted hair effectively for a persistent result.

Hair has a growing cycle as anagen(growth phase), catagen(transitional phase) and Telogen (Resting Phase).
During the hair removal treatment, thermal energy is delivered to the hair follicle and it destroys the hair follicle.
At the time, the hair on anagen is removed effectively but the hair on catagen and telogen isn’t removed because they do not absorb the laser on the epidermis.
So these hairs should be removed when they become anagen by additional treatment.
Therefore, in order to remove all hair, we need hair removal treatment based on the hair cycle repeatedly.
It is normally 3 to 5 times of treatment based on skin type and hair type.
For thin hair or bright hair which has less melanin, more treatment repetition can be required
Hair Removal with ilooda
ilooda has developed a method which uses groundbreaking technology to offer a simple, one-stop solution for truly effective hair removal. Motion scanning technology offers unique gradual heating method effectively damages the hair follicles while avoiding injury to the surrounding skin. The random delivery technique keeps helps to protect the skin and keep it cool during the whole treatment. ilooda provides multiple hair removal solutions and waves for many skin type color even fine hair or dark skin.
What wavelengths do Laser Hair Removal devices use?
Most hair removal devices use one specific type of laser wavelength. The most common ones are the 755nm, 808nm and 1064nm laser wavelengths. Each of these has unique characteristics and different absorption levels in Melanin. Melanin is the chromophore that determines a person’s skin and hair color. ilooda advanced laser devices (VeLux) combine 2 of the common ones are the 755nm, 808nm simultaneously which makes them suitable for all skin types.
