Laser Hair Removal in Latrobe

Using the latest, most advanced Astanza MeDioStar laser technology, Laser 180 delivers smooth, hair-free skin in as little as six treatments!

How Laser Hair Removal Works

During treatment, our Astanza MeDioStar laser emits a pulse of light energy that travels through the skin and targets the melanin in the hair follicle. The laser heats the follicle and destroys the papilla or hair root, cutting off the hair’s nutrient and growth source. Once the damage has been administered, the follicle cannot produce hair.

For long-lasting hair results, multiple treatments are needed. It’s important to note that laser hair removal is only effective during a specific growth stage, the anagen phase. Hair grows in three stages: the anagen phase, the catagen phase, and the telogen phase.

The Hair Growth Cycle

The anagen phase, also known as the active growth stage, is the only stage that laser hair removal is effective. During this stage, the hair root is still attached to the papilla, which is necessary for the laser to target.

The catagen phase, known as the transition phase, is when the hair follicle detaches from the papilla, cutting off the nutrient blood supply. The telogen phase, known as the resting stage, is when old hair sheds and new hair begins to grow, thus restarting the hair growth cycle.

Since each hair grows at a different rate, it’s impossible to target every strand during the anagen phase. That’s why multiple treatments are needed for effective results. Laser 180 recommends that each client receives a minimum of 6 to 12 treatments for long-lasting results. Our Astanza MeDioStar laser performs the fastest, safest, and most effective results for all skin types and hair colors, even newly tanned skin! Call us today to book a free consultation.
