What You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal are often marketed the same, however they are two separate technologies.
The term “Laser” has become somewhat of a generic term when describing hair removal. We prefer to use the IPL technology.
#1 Your hair must have color
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is attracted to pigment. If you are light blonde or grey in the area you want treated, more than likely you will not be a candidate for treatment, however it is best to come in for a complimentary consultation.
#2 Find out who will be performing your treatment
It is imperative that your laser operator is well trained and experienced. Licensed Estheticians (as opposed to just technicians) understand how the skin works and what each skin type can tolerate to get you the best results. Our Estheticians each have over 7 years of experience. Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light are two very powerful therapies. It is extremely important that the treatment settings are appropriate for your skin type and that thorough treatment records are documented.
#3 Does it hurt?
Our system has “cool tip technology”. The adjustable cooling technology keeps epidermal temperature lower to reduce treatment discomfort and minimize skin damage. The laser light pulse feels like the flick of a small rubber band. We offer a topical numbing cream for those clients that are more sensitive.
#4 Laser Hair Removal is technically “Hair Reduction”
All Laser Hair Removal is hair reduction, whether it is Laser or IPL. If anyone claims to offer 100% Hair Removal, RUN! After 4-6 treatments most people would consider the treated area to be hair free, with the only hairs left growing being short fine vellus hairs. It is common for some hairs to regrow and require future ‘maintenance’ treatments. Sometimes treatment requirements may vary due to coarseness of hair, hormones and ethnicity.
What parts of the body do we treat?
We treat most areas of the body. The most popular treatment areas for women include face, underarms, legs and bikini. Men usually see us to treat the chest, back, neck, and beard.
What to expect after a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
After a treatment the skin may look red and slightly swollen, but this should disappear within 24 hours. You can return to normal daily life straight away.
You should avoid direct sun exposure to your treatment area. Refrain from using skincare that contains acids and treatment strength ingredients for approximately 5 days.
How to prepare for Laser Hair Removal Treatment:
Avoid new sun exposure. (tans and sunburn)
Avoid using treatment strength skincare on the area for a minimum of 5 days. Please call us if you have any questions.
Please alert us ahead of time if you are taking any medications. Some medications can make you light sensitive.
No plucking for at least 2 weeks.
Shave the area to be treated the day of or day before.Relax.. the results are sooo worth it!
