Laser Hair Removal Explained
For laser hair removal, we use the Candela GentleYAG and the Soprano Titanium – both medical platform lasers which offer fantastic results in permanent hair reduction. Our lasers can successfully treat all skin types and eliminate the need for shaving, plucking, waxing, or depilatory creams.
So I know you’re wondering, “How does it work?” Let us explain…
When the laser is targeted, a concentrated beam of light is directed and gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair itself. The heat from the laser penetrates down to the root, which in turn, dramatically reduces the hair from further growth. This method of hair removal is the only proven cure for ingrown hair and razor bumps. Laser hair removal will leave your skin feeling smoother, looking younger, and most importantly, #hair-free!
How We Treat You
We aim to make treatments as comfortable as possible for out clients. Both of our laser machines use cooling systems which chill the skin just before each laser pulse.
A laser hair removal session can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Before the session, you’ll be given protective eye gear and, if you want it, a topical anesthetic. Once the session begins, you’ll feel a stinging sensation. You’ll know then that the laser is active. But don’t worry; it isn’t bad at all.
After your laser hair removal session, you may see some swelling and redness. These effects are temporary and likely won’t keep you from resuming your normal activities. However, you must avoid direct sun exposure. And you should also wear high-SPF sunblock for several weeks afterwards.
Number of Treatments Recommended
Hair grows in cycles. Laser hair removal works only on the hairs that are in an active growth stage. Hair follicles that are in the dormant or non-growth stage will not be affected by the laser. Therefore a minimum of 6 treatments is needed to see effective results.
Are Results Permanent?
Laser hair removal provides long term hair reduction. You can expect to see at least 90% reduction in hair after 6 treatments. The remaining hair grows back much finer and lighter than before treatment. At Laser Beauty Room, we have an array of machines which help in treating hair of all types, including fine vellus hair.
