How does laser hair removal work?
A laser safely beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles, pigment in the follicles then absorb the light, which in turn destroys the follicle leaving the treatment area smooth and hair-free.
Is laser hair removal painful?
The majority of people are able to tolerate this laser hair removal very well. The laser is pulsed so rapidly, that only a mild stinging sensation is experienced.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Theoretically, damage to the hair follicle can remove unwanted hair permanently, but because of the nature of hair and the many factors that influence the growth of hair, the results vary from client to client. The effect of repeated treatments is cumulative.
Is laser hair removal safe?
As with any medical treatment, use of any laser hair removal system may have some side effects. However, side effects have been minor and manageable. The precise laser parameters used for each laser hair removal system was carefully defined by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the colour of laser light and the pulse duration to the size, depth, and location of the hair follicle. This research has resulted in a safe technique that effectively reduces the risk of scarring and most other complications following treatment.
What conditions are treated with a laser?
If you’re unhappy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is an effective option that is worth considering. Not only is waxing, shaving, and plucking inconvenient and time-consuming but they are also temporary. Our many laser hair removal systems safely and conveniently eliminate unwanted body hair without damaging the skin’s fragile surface. Large regions of the body can be treated rapidly, while smaller regions (such as the upper lip or chin) are treated in virtually minutes.
How is laser hair removal performed?
The procedure begins by first cleansing and shaving the region that is to be treated. After the laser is turned on or “pulsed,” it is passed over the desired region for a fragment of a second at a time. Without damaging the surrounding skin, pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by hair follicles. The laser energy is transferred to heat, and the heat destroys the potential for hair regrowth.
Who are the best candidates for laser hair removal treatment?
Laser hair removal treatment is extended to all individuals. Our staff customizes each treatment depending on the individual’s skin tone, texture, hair color, and desired region. Nearly all hair colors and skin tones can be treated successfully.
How many treatments are required?
The hair growth cycle occurs in phases and varies from person to person. For some individuals, several laser treatments may be necessary to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter the growth phase. Each client will be advised as to the approximate number of treatments before the procedure.
What are the possible side effects of laser hair removal?
Side effects are not common. Mild redness, slight scabbing, and irritation may occur around the treated area but will disappear rapidly or within several days following the procedure. In rare cases, the treated skin may become mildly lighter or darker. Our experienced laser specialists will inform you of which course of treatment is best for you during the first free consultation at the clinic.
