Laser Hair Removal
We’re pleased to offer the most recent advancement in laser treatment for anyone desiring a comfortable, effective way to remove unwanted hair. With a gentle beam of laser light, we can help you solve your problem of undesirable hair. The treatment is relatively quick and will remove the unwelcome hair without damaging the surrounding skin. Hair-free skin can restore the more attractive appearance you desire and you will rediscover the beauty and confidence you deserve.
Unwanted Hair?The concept of hair removal through laser technology has been a debated topic since its introduction 30 years ago and is slowly gaining acceptance. Excessive hair growth in unwanted areas are usually a result of endocrine disease, heredity and/or drug therapy, and falls into three categories: hirsutism, hypertrichosis and aesthetics.
Hirsutism is unique in females. It is defined by excessive hair growth in a male pattern distribution, i.e. mainly facial hair in the beard and/or upper lip. Hypertrichosis is defined as excessive hair in a normal distribution or in abnormal locations with genetic or ethnic origin. Aesthetics in this context, pertains to unwanted hair affecting one’s beauty or appearance. In any case, the presence of undesirable hair presents a challenge for which laser hair removal can prove to be an effective solution.
Hair revolves through three phases of growth: anagen, catagen and telogen. It is only during the growth phase, anagen, that hair reacts to laser light. The goal in hair removal is for laser light to penetrate to the depth of the hair follicle during the anagen phase to achieve long-term results.
What Should I Expect?Once the treatment is complete, you will be free to return to your normal routine immediately. Some patients may experience a slight reddening around the hair follicles following the treatment, which typically disappears within a short while. It is always recommended to avoid sun exposure or to use sunscreen following the laser treatment.
What Happens To The Treated Hair?Hair follicles affected by the laser are lifeless and your body will attempt to cast them off over a period of time. It will seem that the hair continues to grow for 1 or 2 weeks after the treatment, but in fact they are disengaged from the follicle and will easily fall out. You may notice some “bald patches” after the 3rd or 4th week, where the treated hair has been shed.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?The number of treatments required to obtain optimum results varies with hair density, hair color, skin type, the treatment area and your hair growth cycle. The density of your hair and its growth cycle may be affected by many things, such as your age, ethnic background, hormones or medication. Statistically, most people achieve satisfactory clearance with 5-6 treatment sessions. Some may require more or less sessions depending on the area of hair growth or a combination of the above mentioned factors.
Laser treatments impair the growth capacity of hair follicles when they are in an active growth cycle at the time of treatment. But all hair follicles are not active at the same time. Therefore depending upon the growth stage of the follicles when the treatment is applied, several treatments (4-8) within a few weeks will usually be required to obtain the desired effect.
What Do I Do In Between Treatments?If you are concerned about the hair that hasn’t fallen yet, you may shave or use a fine pair of scissors to trim any such facial or body hair.
