Permanent Hair Removal for White, Blond, Grey, and Fuzz Hair
electrolysis work so much better than laser hair removal for white, blond,
grey, white, red, and fuzz (peach) hair?
removal destroys hair follicles using heat, but the heat must reach the base of
the hair follicle, which lies beneath the skin. Yet the heat produced by
laser hits the whole surface of your skin. When the heat reaching the follicle
is sufficient, it can delay the growth of or destroy the follicle. But not
enough heat always reaches the follicle, which is why the FDA only allows
laser to market as hair reduction, not laser hair removal.
your hair color or the darker your skin color, the less effective laser
becomes. Since the heat produced by laser travels better through the dark hair
pigment rather than skin, the success of laser treatment depends on the amount
of pigment in your hair compared to your skin. Therefore, people with
light (blond, white, grey) or "peach fuzz hair" (vellus) or those
with tan or dark skin are hard or impossible to treat with laser.
is different. It brings the heat directly to the source and only
destroys the cells that need to be eliminated, leaving the skin intact. It
remains fully effective for white hair, grey hair, red hair, and blond hair since it
doesn't rely on the amount of pigment in the hair to destroy the follicle. The
fact that electrolysis doesn't rely on pigment also explains why it's fully
effective in treating very dark skin.
