Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Syneron Laser technology is the first and only technology that uses combined energies to effectively and gently remove hair of many colors and types from all skin tones.
This procedure is truly the next generation of safe and effective hair removal technology. Achieving beautiful, silky smooth skin is now easier than ever!
A beam of light passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed as heat. The heat then destroys the hair follicle and alters the hairs ability to reproduce.
Hair Removal Treatment
As body hair grows in different phases, with active growth only 20 – 30 percent at any given time, it is necessary to repeat treatments to ensure effectiveness. Hair should fall out 10 days to 3 weeks after treatment. With each treatment, significantly less hair grows back, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
A minimum of five to six treatments are needed to see most hair reduction, but varies for each individual. Lasers only treat hair in its active growth phase. Each area of body hair grows in different phases, with active growth only 20-30 percent at any given time, hence the need for repeat hair removal treatments to ensure effect. Maintenance is sometimes required.
Recovery After Laser Hair Removal
Most patients may experience minor redness and swelling at the treated site. This can last a few hours to a couple of days. Our Laser hair removal treatments are only performed by our trained Licensed Aesthetician, Moira Dunn. She is committed to educating our patients on all aspects of laser hair removal including pre and post care instructions.
