It gets rid of your hair! It gets rid of your irritation like bumps, itching and razor burn. Plus it saves you time.
Here is how it works.
A laser emits light that is absorbed by the pigment in your hair. The light energy converts to heat, which then damages hair follicles that produce hairs. This leads to the inhibition of their future growth, or its delay. To put it simply, it destroys those hair-making bad boys!
If you are nervous about it being uncomfortable, have no fear. There is crystal freeze technology that cools the skin as the laser works its magic.
Laser is an excellent solution for hair removal, but be aware that typically 6-8 laser hair removal treatments are necessary. Some people also require maintenance treatments.
Laser hair removal is most effective on dark hair. Luckily, it can be used on all skin types! Unfortunately the laser cannot see grey, blonde or red hairs. If this is you, try waxing or sugaring to thin out your hairs.

The laser uses a light beam to target the pigment (melanin) in the hair. This creates heat which travels down the hair shaft, damaging the hair follicle and destroying its growth. Surrounding tissue is not damaged. Hair has three stages of growth and all hair in the active stage at the time of treatment will be destroyed. The hair will slowly start to fall out and the roots that have been destroyed in that session will not produce another hair.
This be be discussed further during your consult. Treatment is conducted every 2-4 weeks on the face, and 4-8 weeks on the body. The required number of treatments varies, but usually 6 are needed for optimum results. Following that, touch-up treatments are required for most clients: typically 1 treatment, 6 months after a course, and then another 6 months following that. This is because a percentage of hair on your body will be dormant throughout your laser sessions and therefore will not be hit with the laser.
The laser can only kill the hairs that are being actively fed by your body (in the anagen phase). Since your hairs are in different stages of their growth cycle, not all are being fed at once. Each time you come in we get new hairs that have entered the optimal growth stage. They say patience is a virtue.
Yes, after your hair has grown for a month after hair removal. No reason to pay for laser without hairs that can be treated!
It works on most. But the laser does not work on red, blonde or grey hair, it just does not see them.
Yes, we will find where you lie on the Fitzpatrick Scale during your consultation. This will determine what setting the laser can safely be set on for your treatments. We can laser skin that is very pale all the way to a rich, deep brown.
The laser has a built in freeze technology, so the treated skin area is cooled down to 41 Fahrenheit. The treatment is tolerable. However in some sensitive areas the treatment can feel like an elastic band snapping against the skin. The good news is that it is fast. Actually it is faster and feels better than waxing/sugaring.
After each Laser Hair Removal treatment, you are likely to experience some redness, tingling and possibly some heat bumps on the treatment area. This is a sign of a successful treatment and usually subsides within a few hours. A few people experience itching some days later as the hair is pushed out. Stronger reactions are rare, but side effects can include blistering and hyper/hypopigmentation. This risk is greatly reduced when clients follow aftercare instructions and do not tan prior to and after treatments.
