o In an Alexandrite laser hair removal session, hairs that are in an active growth phase and have sufficient melanin content in their hair follicles are most affected.

These hairs will absorb the laser energy, heat up locally and damage the hair follicles. As a result, the targeted hairs will fall out within the next week or two after the laser session.

o It is important to note that laser hair removal is most effective during the growth phase (anagen phase) of the hair follicle, when the hairs are actively growing and have the highest melanin content. However, not all hairs are in the growth phase during the same period, as their growth occurs in cycles. Some hairs may be in the catagen phase or resting phase (telogen phase) during the laser session and these hairs may not be affected by the laser.

o The hairs that fall out after the laser session are mainly those that are in the growth phase. Lazered hair follicles will go through a period of rest (resting phase) before entering the next active phase of growth. In some cases, new hairs may grow back in the lasered area, but they are usually thinner and lighter in color than the original. In general, the goal of laser hair removal is to achieve long-term hair reduction. Multiple laser sessions are required to target hairs in various phases of growth and to achieve optimal results.

o The number of sessions required varies depending on factors such as the person's natural hair color, skin type and the area being treated. Clients should follow the recommended session schedule provided by KRL to maximize the effectiveness of the hair removal process.
