Laser Hair Removal
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Using our state of the art diode laser, the melanin inside each individual hair follicle is targeted. A beam of light is emitted, passing through the skin into the root of the hair follicle. The light energy converts into heat energy which in turn damages the hair follicle.
What should be done before a Laser Hair Removal treatment?
It is recommended that you shave the area one to two days before your appointment. Waxing, or tweezing of the hair must be discontinued at least four weeks prior to treatment. The area to be treated should not have been directly exposed to the sun or tanning booths for at least two weeks. You cannot receive a treatment if you are taking antibiotics, Accutane, or using Retin-A, have any auto-immune diseases or are pregnant.
What does Laser Hair Removal feel like?
When the hand piece initially presses against your skin, you will feel a cool sensation. While the pulses are delivered, a warm, mild pinching sensation may be felt. Our Laser Hair Removal system uses a state of the art cooling technology, and is rated as one of the least painful laser systems on the market.
What occurs after my Laser treatment?
Immediately after you treatment, the region may appear red or swollen. It is recommended to use sunscreen on treated areas that will be exposed to the sun afterwards. It is best to avoid direct sun exposure to the treated area for 5-7 days. The hair in the treated area will begin to shed. You will notice a decrease in hair growth following each session.
