Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
For most people, a series of 6 to 8 treatments achieves a significant reduction in hair growth. Multiple treatments are necessary because hair growth happens in cycles. Not all hair is in an active growing stage at the same time. The majority of our clients see a reduction in the amount of hair and the level of coarseness in existing hair after only a few treatments. For significant clearance of an area 6 to 8 treatments are required. Maintenance appointments may be desired every six months to a year to ensure lasting results.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser is a light beam that is attracted to the melanin in the hair and the skin. The light beam cauterizes the blood supply to the hair’s root. The hair is seared off at the epidermis and will expel from the disabled follicle within 7 to 21 days after laser treatment. The next cycle of hair will grow back in and the next treatment is performed. Each treatment reduces the amount of hair by approximately 30 percent.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
Most clients require at least 6 to 8 treatments for clearance of an area. This number can vary with skin and hair types. If your goal is to reduce the appearance of hair, fewer treatments may be necessary. Factors that may increase the number of treatments are darker skin tones, medical conditions that make hormone levels unstable, and various medications. During your consultation you will receive an estimate of how many treatments you may need.
How Long Do I Wait In Between Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Laser hair removal treatments should be performed at 4-6 week intervals, depending on the area. The face is treated every 4 weeks and the body is treated every 6 weeks. It is best to get the treatment when the next cycle starts to emerge through the skin. This ensures that the majority of the hairs being treated will be in the active growth state and you’ll receive the best possible treatment.
How Will My Skin Look After A Laser Treatment?
It is normal for the treated area to be red and swollen following laser treatment. The area will feel like you have a mild sunburn. These symptoms usually disappear within 2-24 hours. Aloe Vera and ice can be applied to soothe the treated area. Most people resume normal social activities immediately following laser treatment.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
We use the Candela GentleLase Plus, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The unique feature about this laser is the Dynamic Cooling Device™. It not only makes the treatments more comfortable but also protects the skin during laser treatments. You can rest assured knowing all treatments are performed by a Physician Supervised Certified Laser Specialist.
Why Can’t My Skin Be Tanned When I Am Getting A Laser Treatment?
Tanning increases the melanin in the skin. The laser is attracted to melanin, so if the skin has increased melanin it’s difficult for the laser to distinguish between hair and skin. Tanning can cause complications such as burning or discoloration of the skin. It is best for the skin to be the lightest natural color to achieve optimal results and to maintain the integrity of the skin.
Does Laser Hair Removal Treat Light Colored Hair?
Dark hair and light skin are the optimal combination to achieve the best possible results. Individuals who have lighter colored hair can purchase Meladine ,a melanin-enhancing product that temporarily pigments the hair follicle. Meladine is recognized by the FDA as an "accessory to a surgical laser instrument used for laser hair removal" to enhance the effects of laser in the treatment of non-pigmented hair. This product must be applied daily for 2 weeks prior to laser treatment.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
We use the Candela GentleLase Plus, which has a dynamic cooling spray delivery system that minimizes discomfort. You may feel a quick sensation of a rubber band snapping against your skin. If at any time you find the treatment uncomfortable, our Certified Laser Specialist can adjust the laser energy and cooling spray to accommodate your level of tolerance.
