Laser Hair Removal

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only long-lasting hair removal solution has been by electrolysis – which can be time-consuming and is usually limited to small areas, because each hair is treated individually.

Laser hair removal is non-invasive, and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini area sessions are usually completed in under 30 minutes; legs and larger areas longer.

As a general rule, several treatments will be required and you can expect to see a 50% reduction in hair growth after just one treatment. If you hate shaving, or are tired of putting up with painful waxing, tweezing or electrolysis, laser hair removal may be a great solution for you.

Will laser hair removal work for me?
The best results have been achieved on darker, coarse hair, but other factors may influence the treatment process, and are generally best evaluated and discussed in person. We offer a complimentary consultation. Depending on the amount of hair and area treated, the procedure varies from patient to patient.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.

What precautions should be taken before and after treatment?
You MUST stop plucking, bleaching, or waxing hair for several weeks for laser to be optimally effective.

How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in cycles. The laser is only effective on hair in its actively growing cycle. At any one time there will only be certain hairs in that growing phase. This means that consistent treatments at appropriate intervals are absolutely necessary for the best possible results. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin, hair coloring, coarseness of the hair and density per treated area. The laser hair removal system causes permanent reduction in the number of hairs growing in an area. Because hair grows in three phases, and each hair goes through these stages independently, it is almost impossible for one laser treatment to permanently reduce all hair in a given area. While individual results may vary, patients typically find they get up to 20% reduction of hair per treatment so it takes 6 or more treatments to get the desired results.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TREATMENTS ?

  1. The treatment area needs to be shaved to skin level, although a days hair growth may be necessary and helpful so that the area that requires treatment is easily recognizable. You must avoid waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis of the hair for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. The laser needs the hair at skin level in order to effectively destroy the hair follicle.
  2. Avoid the sun exposure for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. The lighter skin allows more energy to be delivered to the target. A “skin” bleaching cream such as Hydroquinone may be started 4-6 weeks before treatment in order optimize results. Be sure that the treatment area is fully washed off and has no makeup, medication etc.
  3. Be certain that you are not on medications such as Accutane, Retin-A, Gold Therapy etc, at present or within the past 6 months. These medications, and several others, can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser. If in doubt, please ask us for a list of the said medications. Laser treatments for hair are not recommended if you are pregnant.
