What is LASER permanent hair reduction in NYC?
Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. By selectively targeting a specific chromophore with a laser to partially damage basal stem cells inside the hair follicles which was FDA approved in 1997.
How does our IPL permanent hair reduction in Brooklyn NYC work?
The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL), the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue.
Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark target matter, melanin, thereby heating up the basal stem cells in the follicle which causes hair growth, the follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin.
Light is absorbed by dark objects but reflected by light objects and water, so laser energy can be absorbed by dark material in the hair or skin, with much more speed and intensity than just the skin without any dark adult hair or melanin.
Melanin is considered the primary chromophore for all hair removal lasers currently on the market. Melanin occurs naturally in the skin and gives skin and hair their color. There are two types of melanin in hair. Eumelanin gives hair brown or black color, while pheomelanin gives hair blonde or red color.
Because of the selective absorption of photons of laser light, only hair with color such as black, brown, or reddish-brown hair or dirty blonde can be removed. White hair, light blonde and strawberry blonde hair does not respond well. Laser works best with dark coarse hair.
While light skin and dark hair are an ideal combination, being most effective and producing the best results, our state of the art Nd:YAG laser are able to target black hair in patients with dark skin so we can help all hair and skin tones.
Intense pulse light called “phototricholysis”, or “photoepilation”, use xenon flash lamps that emit full spectrum light. IPL systems typically output wavelengths between 400 nm and 1200 nm. Filters are applied to block shorter wavelengths, thereby only utilizing the longer, “redder” wavelengths for clinical applications. IPLs offer certain advantages over laser, principally in the pulse duration.
While lasers may output trains of short pulses to simulate a longer pulse, IPL systems can generate pulse widths up to 250ms which is useful for larger diameter targets. Some current IPL systems have proven to be more successful in the removal of hair and blood vessels than many lasers.
Who is suitable for IPL and who is suitable for laser hair reduction?
IPL is typically recommended for lighter skinned individuals from Fitzepatrick skin types 1-4, sometimes up to Fitzepatrick 5. For Fitzepatrick skin types 5-6, Nd:YAG lasers are recommended for permanent hair reduction.
