Laser hair removal in Overland Park

Dare to Go Bare at Leawood Family Care

Laser hair removal works by selectively treating hair follicles without causing thermal damage to the surrounding tissue. Melanin, which is the target, absorbs laser light. The light converts to heat and the heat damages the hair bulb, disabling the hair structure. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for new hair growth. Since pigment in the hair is necessary for this procedure to be effective, we cannot treat patients with white, grey, red, or light blonde hair.

How it Works

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal with the Harmony XL Pro

Hair has three growing cycles: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Laser hair removal is most effective in the anagen phase (the active growth phase) because at that time, the hair contains an abundance of melanin as the cells rapidly divide.

It is impossible to treat all the hair follicles in an area in one session.

To be effective, a series of six treatments is necessary. To target the active growth cycles, we schedule treatments at our Overland Park office four to six weeks apart.

During this time, it is important to shave or clip new hair growth between laser treatments.

No waxing, plucking, or hair removal creams should be used since the hair shaft must be intact for the light energy to be transmitted to the hair bulb.
