LASER HAIR REDUCTION
If you live with unwanted hair and find that too much of your time and money is consumed by waxing, shaving, using creams or electrolysis, laser hair removal may be your solution. Electrolysis is effective, but since it only treats one hair follicle at a time, it is not practical for large areas and can be extremely painful and time-consuming.
Laser hair removal selectively destroys hundreds of follicles with each pulse of light delivered without harming the surrounding skin. The light absorbed by the pigment in the follicles is transformed into heat, which can safely disable the follicle. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. Since pigment is necessary to treat effectively, we cannot treat gray, blonde or silver hair.
Because hair follicles grow in cycles, it is impossible to treat all the viable hair follicles in one session. To be effective, a series of 8 treatments is necessary. The treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to target hair in the active growth cycle. During this time, it is important to only shave or clip the new hair growth. No waxing, plucking or hair removal creams should be used since the hair shaft must be intact for the light energy to be transmitted to the hair bulb.
At Skin Laser and Weight Loss, we use the Quanta Laser/Light System due to its unparalleled efficacy, no need for anesthetic cream, and no downtime. Almost all areas, including face (except around the eyes), back, chest, shoulders, legs and arms can be treated effectively, quickly and safely. Experience the freedom of no more waxing, tweezing or shaving!
