Safely remove unwanted body hair!
Traditionally, hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief and may actually stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis, while effective and ideal for white, grey and blonde hair, often requires years of ongoing and frequently painful treatments. All of these methods often result in scarring, allergic reactions, and ingrown hairs.
Today’s advanced technology in laser hair removal treatment is safe for all skin types and most body parts.
How does Laser Hair removal work?
Laser Hair Removal works by pulsing a beam of light that it is emitted undergoing the skin. The light energy passes harmlessly through the skin, but is absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin), which disables the hair follicle and impairs its ability to grow.
Hair has three stages in its growth cycle, and the laser disables the hair only on the active growth stage (Anagen) at the time of treatment. Because not all hair is in the same stage of growth during treatment, a series of treatments are required to disable all the hair follicles in an area.
Is the laser treatment painful?
While some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, most patients report manageable discomfort. For sensitive patients, anesthetic creams can be applied prior to treatment. The Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), attached to the laser, sprays cryogen onto the skin with each laser pulse to help cool and lessen the heat sting sensation. This system minimizes the level of discomfort during treatment.
What precautions should I take before my treatment?
Avoid the sun exposure before and after treatment or until your practitioner allows it. You must avoid electrolysis, plucking or waxing hair for 2 weeks prior to treatment. If you have had a history of herpes, antiviral therapy may be prescribed before and during your laser treatments to avoid any breakouts.
What should I expect after my treatment?
Within several minutes of the treatment, the treated area will be come slightly red and swollen. This reaction subsides, and within a few hours the area returns to normal. Since the laser does not burn or cut the skin in any way, you can return to your normal activities immediately.
