LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser Hair Removal is a treatment used for permanent hair removal all over the body. It uses laser technology to target the root of the hair, killing the follicle and permanently stopping hair growth. Laser Hair Removal technology has advanced tremendously in the past 20 years. It is no longer painful and it has become extremely effective on all skin types and tones.
Laser Hair Removal is effective only on growing hair, meaning most people need multiple treatments to achieve fully permanent hair removal. The average person needs 6-8 treatments, spaced about 8 weeks apart to get the best results. Hair type is not a factor – we use different lasers to treat thin and think hair, all with amazing results. We are extremely confident in the technology of our lasers to remove hair while being pain free. We have found that numbing agents are not necessary, even on sensitive or private areas.
Laser Hair Removal uses a focused wavelength of light to penetrate the skin and target the darker melanin in the hair follicle. This light turns into heat energy when it hits the follicle, destroying the root of the hair and damaging the surrounding nourishing tissue. This stops the hair’s growth and prevents its ability to regrow. Because the laser targets the melanin in the hair follicle, the treatment needs to be slowed down for those with darker skin. Otherwise the procedure may cause discomfort. Slowing the treatments down might mean more treatments are needed in order to get the best results. Laser Hair Removal consultations are free, so feel free to ask our RN how many treatments she thinks you will need.
When you are planning for a treatment, it’s best to come in unshaven. This allows our practitioner a chance to see how your hair grows and determine the best method of treatment. Unlike other Laser Hair Removal offices, there are no additional charges for shaving. After the treatment, you are free to shave as you feel necessary, but avoid waxing, which pulls up hair from the root and can delay your next treatment. After a Laser Hair Removal treatment, you may find that there is still hair in the treated area – this is because the root has been killed, but the hair just hasn’t fallen out yet. After a series of treatments, you may require a touch up treatment after some time has passed. We recommend coming in for a touch-up on bikini areas about once a year, and other areas as you feel it’s necessary.
At FlashLaser Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on the quality of our service. Our treatments are thorough and not rushed. Our main Laser Hair Removal practitioner, Judy Hiscox, has 12 years of experience. In that time she has developed her own technique to achieve the highest possible satisfaction from our treatments. Other offices may only take 20 minutes for an area that Judy takes an hour for. This allows our patients to get the best results in the fewest amount of treatments, saving you time and money in the long run.
