Have you ever wondered how laser hair removal works and if it’s the right choice for you? Well, we’re here to give you the facts and many benefits of this easy, safe and rejuvenating procedure that can increase your confidence and have you feeling frisky this fall!
SO how does it work you ask? Simply put, the laser uses the pigment in the hair as a conductor. The goal is to eliminate the hair from the root. The light from the laser converts to heat only where it can detect hair pigment. People with dark hair are excellent candidates for laser hair removal contrary to popular belief. Since hair will enter the growth cycle at different times, several treatments are recommended to remove most of the follicles in a particular area. Initial treatments need to be scheduled preferably at four-to-six week intervals, and later as the cycle slows the treatments need to coincide with the active growth cycle. With these multiple treatments, we can ensure that almost all hair follicles and the root bulbs are eliminated.
People often wonder, does it hurt? A simple answer is no! Our machines are top of the line to ensure a pain free process. They use cool mist technology in order to ease the power of the laser. However, everyone’s skin sensitivity is different and people may experience slight redness or irritation during the procedure but should be fully recovered shortly after. Will this be an all day event? Not at all! Our technicians are licensed practitioners with lots of experience and will complete the procedure within minutes! And the great part is there is no down time, you can return back to work or head to a night out right after your laser hair removal treatment.
What are a few things to know about after care? Make sure to avoid direct sun exposure, going to the gym, and any activity that may cause you to sweat directly after. What can be additional positive side effects? You can see less ingrown hairs, less irritation and overall smoother more flawless skin after laser treatment and who doesn’t want that?? Can it work on dark skin? One of the things we pride ourselves on at Lumiere Skin & Laser is the fact that our state of the art Syneron Candela’s FDA approved GentleMax Pro laser works on ALL skin tones. If you use an inferior laser there can be skin discoloration, but with OUR machines we can help people with all skin types!
