Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a breakout technology that uses a precise beam of light to reduce and eliminate unwanted hair. The laser light pulse is converted to heat, which cuts off the blood supply to the root hair follicles that produce your hair. Thus, causing the hair to grow back slower and eventually inhibiting future growth.
The cost of laser hair removal varies for male and female body areas. Please contact us for full details.
Most clients are able to see results in 6-8 sessions. Each client may achieve different result based on a number of factors like skin type, and exposure tolerance to lasers.
For laser hair removal treatments, you will need to cleanly shave the area that you plan to have treated. Do this the night before your scheduled treatment for best results.
As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
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.
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
