Laser Hair Removal
Why Laser Hair Removal?
There are many methods to remove unwanted body hair, most of them are tedious and the hair is only removed for a short period of time. Hair removal processes such as shaving and waxing can leave you with nicks, ingrown hairs and bumps. With the laser hair removal services that we offer you can eliminate the hassles associated with traditional forms of hair removal and finally achieve long-lasting results.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses the power of a concentrated laser beam that passes through the skin, targeting hair follicles. The pigment within the hair follicle absorbs the light, which causes damage to those follicles. This process slows hair growth, and often prevents hair from growing back in the treated areas.
The laser will only target the hair follicles, and does not cause damage to your skin. The device can also treat numerous hair follicles at once, which can significantly reduce your total treatment time.
Is laser hair removal painful?
To eliminate pain caused from the laser heat we continually cool the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) during the treatment. Most patients experience zero discomfort.
If necessary, patients may choose to use a topical anesthetic to control pain.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal is permanent in most cases and consistently provides long lasting results for years.
How long does each laser hair removal treatment take?
The treatment time depends on size of area(s) you wish to have treated. For example, the underarms may take ten (10) minutes to treat, and the legs may take forty-five (45) minutes to treat.
Who are good candidates for hair removal?
Male or female, body or face, tanned or not, and those of any skin color can receive successful, safe and effective treatments with our laser.
Those who have blonde or red hair are advised against any kind of laser because the hairs cannot be targeted to fully destroy. Think of a white t-shirt in the sun, it never gets warm, thus is the same with treating a blonde hair. Since the laser color is red, it cannot recognize a red hair.
What result should I expect after each hair removal treatment?
After your treatment, the active hair may appear to grow for up to three weeks. This is simply the treated hair being shed from the follicle, and is not new growth. Once the follicle is shed, after three weeks, you’ll see the smooth hairless skin result.
How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?
Because lasers can only target active hairs, and not all hairs are active, all candidates seeking laser hair removal treatments must receive a minimum of 6 treatments to achieve satisfactory results.
You should receive your treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. Sometimes longer like 8 to 12 weeks if your hair does not grow as fast. Treatments sooner than 4 weeks do NOT provide faster or better results.
What laser machines do you use?
We use industry leading laser devices from Quanta Aesthetic Lasers (www.QuantaUSA.com).
