Laser hair removal is an aesthetic procedure that uses a laser to target hair follicles in order to destroy them and stop or reduce unwanted hair growth. The Venus Velocity diode laser is a powerful system that delivers energy to the follicle where the pigment in the hair absorbs it and causes the follicle to essentially stop functioning. This means hair in the area either grows much thinner and slower or stops growing completely for a smooth, hair-free result.
Diode Lasers: How Do They Work to Remove Hair?
Diode lasers work to remove hair by destroying the hair follicles during a specific stage of hair growth. Hair growth happens in a cycle, with three growth phases, including the anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting) phases. For this reason, laser hair removal must be performed multiple times in the same area to catch all of the hair in the anagen stage, which about 30% of the follicles are in at a time.
