Unwanted hair can be unsightly, embarrassing and a tiresome exercise in shaving. But now, Bonita Medical Center is offering Clear + Brilliant pelo laser hair removal. The sophisticated pelo laser is redesigning the way to treat unwanted hair. It has a scanning technology that delivers laser energy quickly with uniform heating. This new delivery system creates an efficient and more comfortable way to safely and permanently reduce unwanted hair. The 808nm high power wavelength allows treatment for a range of different skin types and the cooling crystals protect the epidermis while reducing pain. Each pulse of the pelo laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time The pelo laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second and small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in just minutes, large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour. Hair growth takes place in cycles. In total, there are three main phases in a hair's life cycle.
The active growth phase. During this phase, the hair grows rapidly and contains an abundance of melanin, which absorbs light. The hair growth in this phase lasts for a period of 1 to 6 weeks.
This is the transitional period. This phase lasts for a period of 2 weeks. This is the end of the growth phase and is marked by changes in the hair follicle. The hair stops growing and the hair follicle separate from the base, forming hair.
Also called the shedding phase. In this phase all activity stops. Telogen club hair remains in a resting state for 3 to 5 months before being released. The old hair is pushed out by the new hair, and thus the cycle begins.
The most effective laser hair removal takes place during the full-growth stage because the hair follicles in this stage are susceptible to laser energy. But, because all hair is not in the same stage of growth at any given time, several laser treatments (between 4 and 6) maybe necessary for optimal results
