Laser Hair Removal

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser Hair Removal is an in-office procedure that reduces the appearance of unwanted body hair. A laser targets the melanin in the hair follicle, heats it, and destroys the follicle that produces the hair, preventing the hair from regrowing.

WHAT ARE THE COMMON SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effects include redness, bumps, and swelling. These are temporary and will subside with time and the use of after-care products. Rare side effects include hyper-pigmentation or hypo-pigmentation, however avoiding sun exposure and being free of a tan will significantly reduce the risk of these negative effects.

HOW SOON SHOULD I SEE RESULTS?
Immediately

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Since only hair in the active stage of growth will be permanently reduced by laser treatments, clients should plan on a series of 6 to 8 treatments, and should be scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. Additional treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results, depending on the individual.

WHO CAN BE TREATED BY LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal works best on pale skin and dark hair. It is not as effective on blonde, red or white hair.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Refrain from waxing or tweezing the area 4-6 weeks before your first treatment, as well as in between treatments. Do not tan for 2-4 weeks before your appointment, as this could increase the risk of pigmentation problems. If you have a history of cold sores in the area being treated, please
inform the aesthetician, and be aware you may need to take preventative medicine prior to treatment. For best results, shave 24 hours prior to the service and remove all deodorant, makeup and lotions.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY SKIN AFTER TREATMENT?
One should treat their skin gently after laser hair removal. Avoid swimming and strenuous exercise 2-3 days after a treatment. Do not shave, rub, or scratch the area that has been treated. Avoid sun exposure during the time your skin feels sensitive and use and SPF 30 or higher when you resume sun exposure.
