How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser removal handpiece emit pulses of light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.
What body areas can be treated?
Any area, except around the eyes. The upper lip, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest and back can all be treated.
What should you expect?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin.
At any given time, some of your hair is not in a phase of active growth. Therefore you will need more then one treatment to affect the growth of all your unwanted hair.
Typically, 5-6 treatments will be necessary to archive permanent hair reduction. People with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), Menopausal changes, hormone disorders, as well as male patient with higher level of testosteron may require more treatment or touch ups after they finished with all hair cycles.
What do I need to do before my appointment?
To insure an effective and safe treatment we would ask you to stop tanning 4 weeks before your treatment, you can resume tanning 2 weeks after the treatments. if you are using tanning lotions, please, make sure that all remaining lotion is gone from your skin before your appointment.
You would need clean shave the area that you desire to treat on the night before your treatment or the morning of.
Please do not wax, tweeze or use any chemical depilatory creams in between your treatments, shaving is ok if you want to continue to do so.
