How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser Hair Removal is a modern form of hair removal, far superior to traditional methods such as waxing or shaving. Treatments work by targeting hair and their follicles through pulses of energy that pass through the skin. The laser destroys hair follicles in a matter of minutes with minimal (if any at all!) discomfort! The laser energy passes through a handpiece, operated by us, destroying the follicle and eliminating its ability to grow!
Who is a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Conventional Laser Hair Removal works by identifying the difference in tone of an individual’s hair versus their skin. As a result of this, laser hair removal in the past worked only on those with dark hair, on fare skin.
However, our high-tech lasers, operate on multiple wavelengths and can handle any type of hair on any type of skin. The more modern, versatile lasers work on patients with medium to dark skin as well. During your consult, we will judge your candidacy for laser hair removal and see what benefits you the most.
How should I prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
Patients are advised to avoid too much contact with the sun a week or two prior to your treatment. And discuss any prescription or non-prescription creams or medications, you may be taking, with our staff.
How does Laser Hair Removal Feel? Is it painful?
Many of our clients compare the feeling of the laser’s pulse to that of a snap of a rubber band. In years past Laser Hair Removal was a very painful process, but thanks to our qualified professionals and the use of the high-end lasers, with in-treatment comfort & cooling, patients feel little-to-no discomfort. And because the lasers work by using heat energy, they are able to stimulate the inner layers of skin to produce vital compounds such as collagen and elastin, which are able to improve the skin’s tone, and texture while hair is removed.
How many sessions of Laser Hair Removal will I need?
Laser hair removal is known as a semi-permanent procedure. However, in order to remove body hair completely, patients will need multiple sessions, often 2-4 weeks apart. For best results however, our medical professional will assess your specific needs during your consultation.
Side Effects? Downtime?
A significant benefit of modern Laser Hair Removal is that there is 0 downtime. Patients can generally return to their normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. However, some patients may experience minor red blotches, and slight dry skin. Although this is rare and should subside within a few hours or days.
