Every time I visit, I will always be asked this question: can I still sweat after laser hair removal? I haven’t answered yet. I’ve been sweating and popular science a hundred times. Why would anyone ask? Do you know the consequences of not sweating? It’s a loss of thermoregulation and a fever. Just imagine, after doing laser hair removal of the limbs, you start to have a fever often. Isn’t it a waste of money. Let’s understand the relationship between sweat glands and hair follicles.
Sweat glands and hair follicles are appendages of the skin. From the structure of the skin, hair follicles and sweat glands are two independent tissues. They are just neighbors.
Sweat glands are divided into large sweat glands and small sweat glands. Apocrine glands are mainly distributed in armpits, umbilical fossa, around anus and genitalia, and open in the skin with hair follicles. Eccrine glands are almost distributed all over the body, most of which are palms and plantar, forehead, back, armpit and so on. This is an important organ for our body temperature regulation.
Laser hair removal is a technology based on the principle of selective photothermal dynamics. By reasonably adjusting the laser wavelength, energy and pulse width, the laser can pass through the surface of the skin to reach the root hair follicle of the hair. The light energy is absorbed and transformed into heat energy that destroys the hair follicle tissue, so as to make the hair lose regeneration energy or reduce the damage without damaging the surrounding tissue and slight pain. So this “peripheral tissue” of course includes his neighbor’s “sweat glands”.
Because laser hair removal only acts on hair follicles with melanocyte particles, not on sweat glands without melanocyte particles. Only the hair follicles were destroyed, and the sweat glands were not damaged. I hope this is the last time the relationship between popular science depilation and sweating. Laser depilation does not affect sweating. Laser depilation does not affect sweating. Laser depilation does not affect sweating. Say important things three times!
