What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure wherein concentrated laser beams are directed into unwanted hair follicles. The pigment in the hair absorbs the laser energy, permanently damaging the hair follicle. This stops hair growth from the affected hair follicles. The hair shaft will be pushed out of the skin in the next few days, and you’ll achieve permanently hair-free skin in the targeted area.

The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

To understand how laser hair removal works, you must understand the cycles of hair growth. Hair grows in stages — anagen, catagen, and telogen. Anagen is the growth phase when the hair is connected to the follicle, and telogen is the rating phase when the hair is pushed out of the shaft. Different hairs on the human body go through different stages at different times.

During laser hair removal, the laser device delivers laser energy into the unwanted hair follicles. The pigment in the hair absorbs the energy, and the associated follicle is destroyed. However, laser hair removal only works on the hair growth in the anagen stage. If the follicle is dormant, i.e., in the catagen or anagen stage, it won’t be affected by laser hair removal.

As such, each laser hair removal session only stops partial hair growth. Each session destroys the hair follicles currently in the anagen stage. That’s why you need multiple sessions of laser hair removal in Covington and Mandeville, spaced about four weeks apart to target all the unwanted hair follicles. Furthermore, you may also need occasional touch-ups after the final session if a follicle is left untouched.

Laser Hair Removal

JOLI Medispa is the only location on the northshore with this virtually painless technology.


This technology offers the synergistic benefits of the 3 most effective wavelengths for hair removal, each targeting different structures within the hair follicle. The 3 main anatomical targets include the Bulge, Bulb and Papilla.

Trio Clustered Diode Technology combines the high absorption benefits of the Alexandrite 755nm wavelength with the treatment coverage, comfort and low maintenance of the diode laser. Advanced Ice technology cools the skin during treatment for longer periods of time, minimizing the risk of burns while maintaining heat within the dermis where hair follicles are treated. The result is a cutting-edge hair removal solution that delivers superior results for all skin types — including dark skin.


For the widest range of hair types and color. The Alexandrite wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption by the melanin chromophore, making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and color — especially light-colored and thin hair. With more superficial penetration, the 755nm wavelength targets the Bulge of the hair follicle and is especially effective for superficially embedded hair in areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip.


Half the treatment time. The classic wavelength in laser hair removal, the 810nm wavelength offers deep penetration of the hair follicle with high average power, a high repetition rate and a large 2cm spot size for fast treatment. The 810nm has a moderate melanin absorption level, making it safe for darker skin types. Its deep penetration capabilities target the Bulge and Bulb of the hair follicle while moderate tissue depth penetration makes it ideal for treating the arms, legs, cheeks and beard.


Specialized for darker skin types. The YAG 1064 wavelength is characterized by lower melanin absorption, making it a focused solution for darker skin types. At the same time, the 1064nm offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle, allowing it to target the Bulb and Papilla, as well as treat deeply embedded hair in areas such as the scalp, arm pits and pubic areas. With higher water absorption generating a higher temperature, the incorporation of the 1064nm wavelength increases the thermal profile of the overall laser treatment for the most effective hair removal.

Benefits: Virtually painless, proven safety record, all skin types, tanned skin, full coverage rate.
