What is Permanent Laser Hair Reduction?
These personalized treatments utilize cutting-edge laser technology to deliver lasting results for hair reduction over a variety of skin types. Treatments are basically pain-free and performed comfortably in our clinic. Laser hair reduction is a fantastic remedy for both men and women of all skin types who are unhappy with unwanted hair on different areas of their body. Treatments are especially beneficial for men and women who experience ingrown hair or inflammation after shaving, tweezing or waxing unwanted hair. Although it cannot promise 100% hair-free results, treatments are successful in diminishing a majority of unwanted hair over multiple sessions. Laser Hair Reduction is a fantastic option for reducing hair while granting you the gift of time. For certain patients, maintenance treatments are needed as frequently as every two to three months to address and control unwanted stray hairs.
How Do Laser Hair Reduction Treatments Work?
Following a consultation to assess your aesthetic goals and specific needs, we develop a personalized treatment plan. We perform test spots on selected patients to determine the best treatment parameters for your particular skin and hair type. During treatment, a numbing topical cream may be used to ensure optimal patient comfort. The hair reduction laser is gently applied to the treatment area. The advanced laser systems then work to emit quick and precise light energy beneath the skin to the targeted hair follicles. Simultaneously, cooling technology works to maintain the safe temperature of the surrounding tissue to prevent damage. Once the laser energy reaches the hair follicle, it is heated and destroyed. This prevents the follicle from further producing hair, resulting in smoother looking skin.
Your skin may be slightly red temporarily afterwards and hair in the follicles may look darker for a few days before the treated hair is ejected. Session times vary depending on each patient, the size of the treatment area and skin type. Results can be visible within a couple treatment sessions as your treated hair continues to fall out. Permanent Laser Hair Reduction is a real solution with lasting results.
