Our laser device can treat body areas such as the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
The hand piece of our laser device cools and soothes as it glides along the skin. When a pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
Most areas require, on average, 6 treatments for long-term benefits. This can vary, however, due to a variety of factors such as: hair thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area, hence the need for an average of 6 treatments.
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. During your consultation with one of our medical technicians, a complete explanation of the risks and benefits of treatment will be explained.
Some more information about what to expect after your treatment…
As mentioned above, you may notice a bit of redness and/or swelling and this is normal. Three to seven days after treatment, you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Laser is popular and preferred because, unlike the above methods, it offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.
