Laser hair removal is a long-term alternative to waxing, shaving, threading, and other hair removal methods. Laser hair removal prevents hair from regrowing on once the hair has been treated during all of its growth cycles.
We are able to safely treat all skin tones. We use the Sciton and Gentlemax laser, which both are gold standard award lasers. We can safely treat all areas of the skin and body.
The laser light delivers concentrated energy directly into the melanin within each hair follicle. Once the melanin absorbs this heat, the stem cells in the hair bulb are damaged, causing the melanin to dissipate and move into the bloodstream. The melanin particles will be harmlessly removed from the body after that. Once this occurs, that hair follicle will be unable to create new melanin and thus new hair will not grow there again. Laser hair removal must be done in stages, as hair must be targeted in all of its growth phases.
It depends on the individual and on the size of the area being treated. The majority of patients require at least six laser hair removal sessions. This ensures that all the growth cycles are targeted. Laser hair removal sessions are usually scheduled at least a month apart to make sure that new hair has enough time to appear. Once the patient has undergone a series of laser hair removal sessions, maintenance may be required at once per year.
