Laser Hair Removal
Laser treatment for unwanted hair is a non-invasive approach to permanent reduction and long-term hair removal. Treatment is specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body, including the face, back, chest, bikini line, legs, arms and underarms. This treatment safely eliminates hundreds of unwanted hair follicles instantly. Unlike many other treatment methods, laser therapy leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother and softer. A series of treatments is usually necessary for optimal results.
Laser is a beam of light that creates heat with pigment. The darker and thicker the hair is, the better the laser works. The heat disables the hair follicle which causes the hair growth to stop. It then disconnects from the hair bulb which causes that particular hair to be pushed up to the surface quicker then normal. This can cause a hair growth spurt in some areas, which is normal. The hair eventually falls out of the follicle, which can take up to 2-3 weeks after treatment.
Be sure to shave the area being treated the day before. Do not shave the day of because this could cause razor burn and cause discomfort, rash, or irritation combined with heat of the laser. Be sure to stay out of direct sunlight for at least 3-4 weeks before AND after treatment. DO NOT wax, pluck, thread or use chemicals to remove hair. SHAVING IS THE ONLY METHOD ALLOWED. Please be sure to let us know of any medical changes.
We use the Candela Yag that treats all skin types and Sciton Broad Band Light for Fitzpatrick scale I- IV.
While we can treat dark brown & black hairs, unfortunately the laser cannot treat white, gray, blonde, strawberry blonde, red, or light brown hairs.
It feels very similar to a rubber band snap
The laser is not the exact science and everyone responds differently. Some factors include the color & thickness of hair, skin type, and the area being treated. It could be as little as 6 treatments or up to 12+ treatments.
It is permanent hair reduction.
