Each of your hair follicles is in one of 3 stages of growth at any given time. The “active growth” (anagen) phase, “regressive” (categen) phase, and “resting” (telogen) phase.
The laser is most effective at disabling “actively growing” hairs during treatment. It is during anagen that the hair shaft contains the greatest abundance of melanin, the target of the laser light. Many hair follicles are in their resting or regressive stages at any given time. The length of the growth cycles also vary slightly by body area. Your treatment plan will be customized to obtain optimal results.
If you’re considering a laser hair removal treatment – or any other treatment, including Botox and Restylane – we invite you to schedule a free consultation.
Lasers have been used for over a decade for a variety of medical cosmetic procedures including the treatment of facial and leg veins, age spots and smoothing fine lines on the face. We utilize state-of-the-art technology to customize your treatment depending upon your skin type and hair density.
Our laser hair removal systems emit a precise beam of pulsating light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where the energy is absorbed by melanin (or pigment) that gives color to the hair shaft. The lasers’ energy is then absorbed by the pigment in the hair and transferred to the surrounding hair follicle.
The unique design and long wavelength of our lasers at Pure Med Spa allow the laser to treat patients of all skin tones and types including African American, Asian, Indian, Hispanic, Caucasian, and even patients with a suntan!
Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body for men and women – from small areas such as your upper lip, underarms, bikini area, chin, neck, and face, to larger areas such as arms, chest, back, and legs.
Most people are great candidates. Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary hair removal. Until now, the only long-lasting hair removal solution has been by electrolysis – which can be time-consuming and is usually limited to small areas, because each hair is treated individually.
Laser hair removal is non-invasive, and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini area sessions are usually completed in under 20 minutes; legs and larger areas can take longer.
One significant advantage of laser hair removal treatment is that it affects a large number of hair follicles at once resulting in quick, more permanent results. As a general rule, several treatments will be required and you can expect to see a 50% reduction in hair growth after just one treatment.
The best results have been achieved on dark, coarse hair, but other factors may influence the treatment process, and are generally best evaluated and discussed in person. We offer complimentary consultations.
The procedure varies from patient to patient depending on the amount of hair and the area treated. Generally, the treatment will begin by trimming away or shaving the hair above the skin to be treated. Protective glasses will be provided to shield your eyes from the laser’s bright light. Next, a cool gel (similar to an ultrasound gel) will be spread over the treatment area. The laser’s hand piece will then be applied to the skin to deliver the pulses of light needed to begin disabling your unwanted hair.
You can return to work or resume normal activities immediately following your laser hair removal procedure. However, since some redness may occur, you may want to plan your work or social engagements accordingly. This may last from a few minutes to several days depending on the area and your skin’s sensitivity.
You must stop plucking or waxing your hair for several weeks prior to the laser hair removal to be optimally effective. We have a variety of lasers to safely treat all skin types and skin colors including dark & tanned skin. Our highly trained professionals educate you on your options and tailor a treatment program to best suits your personal needs. Together you and the laser specialist can decide if your expectations will be met and which treatment is the best option for you.
Hair grows in cycles. The laser is only effective on hair in its actively growing cycle. At any one time there will only be certain hairs in that growing phase. This means that consistent treatments at appropriate intervals are absolutely necessary for the best possible results. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin, hair coloring, coarseness of the hair and density per treated area.
The laser hair removal system causes permanent reduction in the number of hairs growing in an area. Because hair grows in 3 phases, and each hair goes through these stages independently, it is almost impossible for one laser treatment to permanently reduce all hair in a given area. Clinical studies, which have followed patients for one year after completing 2 treatments, have shown that reduction in hair growth was stable for the duration of that time. While individual results may vary, patients typically find that it takes 6 to 8 treatments to get the desired results.
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. Laser hair removal offers longer lasting results for your hair removal needs.
Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures.
Each pulse, which lasts less than a second, produces a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a quick, light pinch.
