How does laser remove hair?
Highly controlled flashes of laser beams are selectively absorbed by hair follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages and destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle- all without damaging surrounding tissue. Hair follicles are usually in different growth cycles at different times in relation to one another. Since the follicle must be in active growth in order to be affected by the laser, several treatments spread over several months are required to assure the destruction of all hair follicles.
We Treat the Bikini area, underarms, and face.
What kind of results should I expect?
Our lasers is used for permanent hair reduction. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. Usually five to six treatments spread out 4 weeks apart are required to achieve optimal results. Following each treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities.
Can all hair be treated?
Our state of the art lasers offer you customized treatment according to your hair color, texture and body location. Any hair with at least some pigment in it (black, brown, red) can be treated effectively. Blond or white hair does not respond well to treatment with a laser.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours.
On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur, but typically resolves quickly. The skin may also become lighter or darker following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure before and after treatments will minimize the risk of complications.
