Laser Hair Removal
A series of laser hair removal can significantly reduce hair growth on all parts of the face and body.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedure in the United States. Its proven efficacy has made it a popular procedure for all ages and skin types. After completing a series of treatments, hair growth is significantly reduced. Laser hair removal is also perfect for people who suffer from razor burns, ingrown hairs and folliculitis.
How laser hair removal works
IPL hair removal uses light and heat to reduce hair growth. Light travels harmlessly through the skin until it hits the hair follicle, where most of the melanin (or color) is. The light is converted to heat energy, which essentially destroys the follicle as well as most of the hair shaft. The dead hair is pushed to the surface of the skin and eventually falls out after 1-3 weeks.
What to expect during your appointment
We start by having you lie down comfortably before applying a thin layer of conductive lotion in the areas to be treated. You will see flashes of light as the treatment begins. Most people say they occasionally feel a mild snapping sensation, especially in extremely sensitive sections or over a bony area. After we are done, you will have an opportunity to wipe away any excess lotion and apply a rich, soothing moisturizer or calming hydrocortisone cream. The procedure time will depend on how large of an area we are removing hair from.
Length of results
Results may vary greatly, depending on what areas we are treating and how many sessions you have already completed. In the first few sessions, hairs will usually take 3-4 weeks before starting a new growth cycle. The more treatments you have already had, the longer the time between sessions will be.
It is important to come in every 4-6 weeks, especially for the first few treatments. This will ensure the most effective, long-lasting results. Patients need at least 6-8 treatments to see a significant reduction in hair. Once-a-year touch-ups are necessary for maintenance.
