How does laser hair removal work?
A laser emits light energy of a specific wavelength into a beam, measuring only a few millimeters in diameter. It’s important to have the proper laser light wavelength for optimal hair removal results. With the correct wavelength and energy, the laser penetrates and breaks down the hair follicle growth without damaging any other part of your skin.
What body parts does laser hair removal work best for?
The Cynosure Elite and GentleMax Pro treats all skin types and all body parts, including your face, underarms, arms, bikini area, legs, and back. Both can also be used to assists with brown spots, uneven pigmentation, and purple leg veins.
Who are the best candidates for laser hair removal?
Our lasers target melatonin so they work better if patients have some melatonin in their skin. If you have blonde, red, or grey hair, please schedule a consultation to see if you’d still be a good fit for laser hair removal.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
In preparation for an upcoming laser hair removal treatment, one of our specialists will provide you with detailed instructions pertaining to your upcoming treatment. As with any procedure, it is always important to keep us informed of any and all medications you are taking or have recently taken, any health conditions or possible concerns, any recent changes in your health, and all skin or body products you use, treatments you have undergone, or are planning. This information helps us best advise you in preparation for any upcoming laser hair removal sessions.
Here are a few tips to start:
- Avoid tanning booths and tanning products for three weeks before
- Don’t tweeze, wax or dye your hair two weeks prior to the procedure
- Avoid harsh skincare products for about a week before
- Shave three days before your procedure
What to expect during my laser hair removal procedure
During your laser hair procedure, one of our certified clinicians will cleanse your skin and give you some protective eyewear. First, the laser releases a pulse of cooling spray to protect your skin, and then it releases one of laser light. The cooling spray does help with discomfort but if you want, you can request a topical anaesthetic be applied a half hour before we begin to further minimize the discomfort.
What does recovery and aftercare look like?
Typically, most clients return to their daily activities immediately after a laser hair removal treatment. Some may notice some redness near the hair follicles but that will usually disappear within a few hours. You can use a cold pack or soothing aloe gel to promote faster healing time. It’s important to use at least SPF 35 for the next month and to avoid heavy sun exposure.
How many sessions do you need for optimal results?
Results do vary depending on a number of factors. On average, a typical person might require anywhere from 5 to 10 sessions to achieve a significant decrease in growth. In addition, the time between new growth cycles becomes prolonged and you can expect to see no hair growth for several months to years after you last laser session. You may have less stubble and ingrown hairs too.
