Hair growth occurs in a down cycle for each follicle so that hair follicle first forms a new hair then the hair falls out and the follicle rests for a time and then again repeat the process and form a new hair. Since hair follicles do not go together in this process, there will simultaneously be resting follicles and thus do not contain hair, and there will be follicles that are in progress to produce a new hair. Since the treatment, as mentioned, based on the dark hair system absorbs light, there will be no effect on the hair follicles, which does not contain a hair at the time of treatment.

When the light works by being absorbed by the hair melanin is important that you have not removed the hairs with tweezers, depilatory creams, waxing or similar in at least one month before treatment. This ensures that there will be a maximum number of hair present in the hair follicles at the time of treatment. On treatment days, you meet with barely visible stubble, so handler can see the hair to be treated. One must, however, like to shave the hairs by between treatments. Because sunburn is the formation of additional pigment (melanin) in the epidermis, this will slow down the system's laser light from reaching down to the hairs deeper below the skin. It is therefore important that the skin is as light as possible at the time of treatment. Treating a tanned skin, will result in a less efficient removal of the hairs and a risk of getting a sunburn reaction in the epidermis. Normally it is not necessary to make any finishing treatment. If you have thin, sensitive skin, you can however have the benefit of a good moisturizer for a few days after treatment.
