LASER HAIR REMOVAL


Our quick and comfortable laser hair removal offers long-lasting results so you can say goodbye to unwanted hair, razor burn and bear bumps for good.

 

How it works: laser beam targets the chromophore (melanin in hair), the energy  transfers to heat that permanently burns the follicle (more precisely the papilla which nourishes the hair). When you cut the hairs nourishment/food source, hair no longer grows. However multiple sessions are required, as hair goes through a cycle (not always being attached to “papilla”). We need the hair to be in the Anagen/active phase (attached to the papilla). Different hair on our bodies will be in different parts of the cycle, but there is no way for us to tell which hair is in Anagen phase. The hair’s cycle lasts roughly a year, so we recommend about 6 sessions per area, spaced 6-8 weeks, spaced throughout 1 year, and covering majority of hair in Anagen phase.

How it feels: with the diolaze, barely any pain. Areas with coarse/thick hair will be a little more stingily. The ultrasound gel and cooling tip help make this a very comfortable experience.

What to expect after each session: 5-20% permanent hair reduction per session. That percentage, of course varies on hair’s cycles.

How should I prepare for my appointment? : please come freshly shaved. No waxing for at least 4 weeks before laser. Don’t apply lotion, deodorants, Retinols, AHA’s to the area of treatment on the day of treatment. Stay out of the sun 3 weeks before your appointment. And always wear spf during your treatment series!
