Our treatments use advanced laser technology to deliver quick, effective, and comfortable treatments. Each treatment will get you one step closer to achieving smoother, healthier, and hair-free skin.
Laser Hair Removal
Those who choose to shave their bodies to remove unwanted hair will spend an estimated $12,000 on razors throughout their lifetime. This increases even more if you schedule professional waxing appointments. The good news is that there is an affordable and effective solution that will save you money and eliminate unwanted body hair: laser hair removal.
This treatment process uses pulses of laser light energy to target hair follicles in the treatment area to heat them and destroy them, preventing future hair growth. The laser energy is attracted to the melanin in the hair, which is the pigment, and the treatment results rely on your body’s natural hair growth cycle. Patients need a series of treatments to achieve the desired results to effectively target every hair follicle in an active state of growth.
What Areas Can It Treat?
One of the benefits of laser hair removal treatments is that we can use the advanced technology in the device to target unwanted hair virtually anywhere on the body. We offer full-body laser hair removal and Brazilian hair removal treatment plans. Whether you want to treat your entire body or one specific area, we can design a treatment plan to help you achieve hair-free skin wherever you want it.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Because the success relies on the total number of hair follicles in an active growth stage at the time of treatment, most patients need several treatments six to twelve weeks apart to effectively target all hair follicles in an active growth stage. We design unique treatment plans for each patient and can give you a better idea of what your complete treatment will look like during your initial consultation.
Patients may need touch-up appointments every year to maintain the best results. It’s important to note that hormonal fluctuations can trigger hair regrowth over time. We can give you more details about your results and what to expect from the treatment process during your initial consultation.
How Do I Prepare for the Treatment Process?
Once we determine that you are a good treatment candidate for laser hair removal, we will provide instructions on preparing for your appointment. We advise patients to shave the treatment area the day before their scheduled appointment. Patients who have been undergoing regular waxing treatments will need to refrain from scheduling additional treatments for at least six weeks before undergoing a laser treatment.
Unlike shaving, which simply cuts the hair down to the skin’s surface, waxing completely removes the hair from the root. Successful laser treatment requires some level of hair growth within the hair follicle, which is why you need to stop waxing before your appointment.
Is There Any Downtime?
After a laser treatment to remove unwanted hair, you won’t have to plan around downtime. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, however, so it’s important that you avoid excessive sun exposure.
It’s also important that you follow the aftercare instructions and use the right products to moisturize your skin while also abstaining from harsh products.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Laser hair removal will effectively damage the hair follicle so that hair reduction occurs, and you can be one step closer to living free from unwanted body hair long term.
The laser energy destroys the hair follicle, but it also delivers heat energy to the area, promoting increased collagen and elastin production. As a result, you can expect younger and healthier-looking skin as an added bonus of the treatment process.
After treatments are complete you will also save time, money and effort on removing unwanted hair compared to shaving or waxing.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment process are patients who want to effectively eliminate unwanted hair from different body areas. Potential candidates must understand the treatment requirements and commit to undergoing the necessary number of treatments to achieve their desired results. Advancements in laser technology have enabled patients with all different skin tones and hair colors to undergo treatment successfully.
Ideal patients should have some pigment in their hair so that the laser can effectively target the melanin in the hair to heat and destroy the hair follicle. Our initial consultation process helps us learn more about your desired treatment area and evaluate your hair and skin in person to ensure that you are a good treatment candidate.
