Laser Hair Removal
Is it permanent?
It is laser hair removal. Every person is different, therefore we can’t promise complete hair removal but most experience 50-90% hair reduction. Maintenance sessions may be necessary in some cases.
Does it work for all hair and skin types?
Laser hair removal works better for darker hair types. The LightSheer™, which is considered the gold standard in laser hair removal, does work for light, gray and red hair, but it may take more sessions to get the best results. For darker skin types, test areas need to be done to see the reaction of the skin to the laser. Since the laser is attracted to the melanin, which is higher in darker skinned people, it is more difficult to target the melanin in the hair shaft. Therefore, some pre-treatment might be necessary with a skin lightener for darker skin.
Is there any pre-treatment?
You can not pluck, wax, use a depilatory or have electrolysis in the areas you want to treat for 6 weeks prior to laser hair removal. Do not tan the areas for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Avoid using self-tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
What post-treatment is necessary?
You will need to wear sunscreen regularly during your laser treatment package and for 6 weeks after completing your packages. Avoid irritants for seven days after treatment.
Does it hurt?
There is minimal discomfort. It feels like a rubber band snap. Topical anesthesia can be used for areas that are more sensitive.
