LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Lasers can target dark hair at the follicle, without damaging surrounding tissues. In this manner, the root of the hair gets destroyed, preventing regrowth. The treatments are virtually painless and quick. We offer the latest devices to obtain the best results. Treatments are performed every 4-8 weeks depending on the area being addressed.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
It is important to avoid waxing or plucking for 3-4 weeks before your treatment. This is because the laser targets the root of the hairs and the these methods remove them temporarily. You should also avoid direct sun exposure and self tanners for 4 weeks before your treatment.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal
Arrive with cleanly shaven skin and avoid the use of deodorant, lotions, or makeup. You will be given appropriate eye protection and our technician will adjust the laser settings according to your specific needs. She will also apply a clear gel to the treatment area to help cool the skin and make the treatment more comfortable. The laser will be pulsed over the areas to be treated to target the hair follicles. When you're done, you will be scheduled to returned after 4-8 weeks, depending on your particular needs. Over the next month, watch your hair fall out!
LASER FOR PIGMENT
Hyperpigmentation can occur on the skin for a variety of reasons. Most often, it is due to an increase in melanin in one area of the skin after extended sun exposure. You may also find yourself with hyperpigmented spots due to your genetics or due to past treatments that you had that irritated your skin and created dark spots.
