Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Determining if you are a candidate for laser hair removal depends on the coarseness and color of your hair and skin, as well as the technology used to address these factors.

As the hair progresses from coarse to fine in certain skin types, multiple lasers or light-based systems need to be available to the medical practice in order to best address permanent hair removal. Dr. Hankins advises his hair removal patients that the growth cycle of the hair follicle is critical to a successful treatment. As all hair grows in three stages, it is important to know that hair can only be destroyed in the beginning stage when the bulb is in the hair bed.

During the remaining two phases, the hair is migrating out of the body to be shed while new growth occurs. The only time a laser or light source can remove permanent hair is when the hair is targeted in the beginning phase.

Can White or Blonde Hair Be Treated?

White or blonde hair may be treated depending on the individual, however it is not likely to work because of their lack of pigment. Since the pigment is the source of the target to heat and destroy the hair and bulb, it is not likely to have an effect on these hair colors. Another solution for these is waxing, plucking, or shaving.
