The Science: Permanent Body Hair Removal
Lasers are a medical device which have changed and dramatically advanced the way we treat skin issues. The definition of a laser can help you better understand why your laser procedure is so safe and effective. Lasers and light sources (the term light source stands for “Intense Pulse Light” or an IPL device) have years of clinical data to document permanent hair removal over a series of gentle treatments.
The process is most effective for dark hair, not light or gray/white or red hair. This is because the lasers are really targeting the pigment particle, or “melanin”, in the hair follicle. The wavelength of light focuses high energy to the base of the hair, causing permanent hair removal. Specific types of lasers and IPLs can effectively achieve the goal of permanent hair removal for your problem areas.
The Solution: Laser & Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments
A series of laser hair removal treatments is recommended to achieve approximately 70% permanent hair removal. Commonly treated areas include:
- bikini area
The number of treatments required to achieve your desired results depends on the site, the density and type of hairs, and the way your body responds to the laser.As the target for the laser energy is melanin, laser hair removal is effective for only dark hair.
We offer three different laser devices so that we can personalize the treatments to your particular hair issues, thus providing you with the results you are looking for. The laser hair removal treatments are no downtime, and vary in time from 15 minutes to much longer depending on the site.
