LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser Hair Removal Benefits
A non-invasive, gentle technique that reduces undesirable hair from most parts of the body
Treats larger areas effectively because it disables more than one hair at a time
May make skin color and complexion more uniform
Replaces waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
Laser hair removal is an ongoing process that requires multiple sessions because it only affects actively growing hair, and not all hair follicles are active at the same time. In addition, high energy levels are avoided so as to minimize the risk of injury to the adjacent skin.
Occasionally patients may experience slight redness of the skin or mild swelling around the hairs.
Sunscreen is recommended for any area treated that may be exposed to the sun.
Patients with darker skin may not respond well due to inadequate discrepancy between skin and hair colors.
Blonde or gray/white hair is less responsive due to lack of ample pigment in the hair.
How does a Photo Facial work?
An "IPL" laser delivers high intensity pulses of broadband light that are non-ablative (do not damage the surface of the skin). The intense light is delivered to deeper parts of the skin (dermis) and leaves the superficial skin (epidermis) untouched.
What are the advantages of IPL?
IPL can eradicate red facial veins and flushing, improve acne rosacea, treat irregular pigmentation, dark sunspots, and reduce fine facial lines.
Who is a GOOD candidate for IPL?
Patients with rosacea, red flushed faces, facial blood vessels and capillaries, sun damaged skin, pigmented facial spots, and enlarged pores.
Who is NOT A GOOD candidate?
Darker complexions, tanned skin or recently tanned skin individuals are generally not good candidates for the treatment. Men who wish to have facial treatments, should note the beard /mustache area can have patchy hair loss after a session, so may not want to treat this area where regular facial hair grows.
How often do patients have treatments?
Patients should undergo a series of 3-6 IPL treatments. Treatments are administered every 3-4 weeks. Each treatment session is 20 to 30 minutes.
How is the treatment performed?
During treatment, a cool gel is applied to the treated area, then a pulse of light is emitted from the hand piece. Generally no local anesthetic is required as most individuals tolerate the treatment well. After the session you may have some redness for the rest of the day, but there is NO DOWNTIME as individuals return to work the following day.
