Both men and women have unwanted hair that can occur in different areas of the body. The upper lip, the chin, cheeks, on the back or chest, legs, lower abdomen, and bikini line are common areas of unwanted hair. Often, people get tired of the constant waxing and shaving and want the hair permanently. The best method for permanent hair removal is laser hair removal. Original Skin MedSpa uses the Luminus Lightsheer Laser, considered to be the Gold Standard for permanent laser hair removal.
Is Laser Hair RemovalPermanent?
Yes, for many patients it is permanent. For most people, a series of 6 to 8 treatments achieves a significant reduction in hair growth. Multiple treatments are necessary because hair growth happens in cycles. Not all hair is in an active growing stage at the same time. The majority of our clients see a great reduction in the amount of hair and the level of coarseness in existing hair after only a few treatments. For significant clearance of an area 6 to 8 treatments are required. Maintenance appointments may be desired every six months to a year to ensure lasting results.
How Many Laser Hair RemovalTreatments are needed?
Most people require 6 to 8 treatments for clearance of an area. This number can vary with skin and hair types. If your goal is to reduce the appearance of hair, fewer treatments may be necessary. Factors that may increase the number of treatments are darker skin tones, medical conditions that make hormone levels unstable, and various medications. During your consultation you will receive an estimate of how many treatments you may need.
How Will My Skin LookAfter A Laser Treatment?
It is normal for the treated area to be red and swollen following laser treatment. The area will feel like you have a mild sunburn. These symptoms usually disappear within 2-24 hours. Aloe Vera and ice can be applied to soothe the treated area. Most people resume normal social activities immediately following laser treatment.
Is Laser Hair RemovalSafe?
We use the Luminus Lightsheer Laser, which is considered the Gold Standard for permanent laser hair removal. The unique feature about this laser is the cooling device. It not only makes the treatments more comfortable but also protects the skin during laser treatments.
Why Can’t My Skin Be Tanned When I'mGetting A Laser Treatment?
Tanning increases the melanin in the skin. The laser is attracted to melanin, so if the skin has increased melanin it’s difficult for the laser to distinguish between hair and skin. Tanning can cause complications such as burning or discoloration of the skin. It is best for the skin to be the lightest natural color to achieve optimal results and to maintain the integrity of the skin.
What Areas Can Be TreatedWith Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal can be performed everywhere on the body except the eyelids.
What Are Thebenefits Of Laser Hair Removal?
