How The treatment Works
What is the Best Laser for Hair Removal?
We have it! Get Permanent, Effective and Fast treatments. -SAVE Time and Money: Less Treatments yet Better Results
The great thing about Laser Hair Removal is that it permanently destroys active hair follicles. Once your sessions are complete, we recommend yearly touch up treatments for any follicles that may have popped up due to hormonal changes or simply the aging process.
Before each session begins, a consultation and skin analysis is completed in order to customize laser settings according to your skin color and type, and the area of the body being treated.
Treatment begins by trimming away any hair above the surface of the skin and then conducting test spots to determine the patient’s skin response to different device settings. Next, a cold gel (similar to ultrasound gel) is spread over the treatment area. This helps keep the skin cool and focus the light on the treatment area.
Patients will wear special eye-wear to protect the eyes from the bright light. The device’s hand-piece is moved over the treatment area, while light-based energy is emitted in highly-controlled flashes or pulses. This heats up the hair, significantly damaging the regrowth potential of the follicle.
When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. Additional hair may fall out over the next two to four weeks.
Am I can candidate for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is safe and effective for all skin types. The only consideration is the hair color must be black or brown. Laser does not see blonde, red or gray hair color.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Hair Removal
We can treat a variety of areas across your body with laser hair removal. The most common locations for women are:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
However, if you have a different location you would like to have hair removed from, we can treat any area with the exception of the areas around the eyes or shaping eyebrows.
It is important that treatments are spaced at the correct timeframe in between sessions as we need to catch the hair in the correct growth phase.
Hair Removal for Men
Men usually desire hair removal on their face, neck, back, shoulders, chest, and abdomen.
For both men and woman, ingrown hairs and razor burn can cause skin irritations, bumps and discoloration. Laser hair removal eliminates the follicle so your skin will return to a smooth, clear complexion once your treatments are complete.
