If you’re tired of shaving, waxing or plucking to manage unwanted hair growth, Laser hair reduction might be the answer. This treatment delivers a specialized light that is absorbed by the dark melanin pigment and destroys the follicle to prevent future hair growth.
This treatment is safe for all skin types. Expect permanent hair reduction after a series of treatments, scheduled 4 weeks apart.
Laser treatment is a safe and effective way to diminish unwanted hair growth. It has been clinically proven to be non-allergenic, and it is a great option for all skin types. This revolutionary laser technology can save you time and money spent on shaving, waxing, and tweezing.
During the laser treatment, light energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the dark melanin pigment in your hair. This heat destroys the hair follicle and prevents it from producing another one in that area. Since only the hair follicles in the active growth phase are affected, you will need multiple treatments to see results.
It is important to share with your technician any medications or medical conditions you may have, as these can affect your reaction to the light and how your skin responds to the treatment. It is also best to avoid waxing, plucking, or electrolysis leading up to your appointment and to use sunscreen on the day of your treatment. The most common side effect is red and sensitive skin, similar to a sunburn. Aloe gel and cold compresses can help with this.
The light pulses that are emitted from the laser device target the color of the hair and destroy it. This prevents the growth of unwanted hair in that area and helps achieve smooth, soft skin without nicks, cuts, or irritation.
The tip of the laser instrument might have a cooling device or a cool gel on it to protect the skin before, during and after each pulse. A numbing topical might also be applied to reduce any discomfort associated with the treatment. A session can last a few minutes for a small area or an hour or more for larger areas.
Unlike other hair removal options, laser treatment is safe for all skin types. However, it’s important to discuss any medications or medical conditions you have with your doctor before your appointment. You should also avoid sun exposure before and after your treatment and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen on the treated area if you do go outside. In addition to these precautions, you’ll need to commit to a series of treatments for best results.
Laser hair reduction is a safe and comfortable treatment for getting rid of unwanted body hair. Unlike waxing and shaving, which can cause razor burn or ingrown hairs, laser treatments are completely non-invasive and painless.
During your laser treatment, your skin care professional moves a handheld device over the desired area of unwanted hair. The laser’s light is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicles and transformed into heat, which destroys the follicles and prevents them from growing back. Your skin may feel a slight stinging or rubber band snap sensation during the procedure, but most people don’t need any pain medication to get through it.
Our lasers are designed with your comfort in mind. We use the Aragon Plus triple wave diode laser, which has three different wavelengths (755nm, 808nm, and 1064nm) that allow us to treat a wider range of skin and hair colors. The cooling technology of the laser handpiece also helps keep your skin comfortable throughout the treatment. With all these safety features, you can be sure that you’ll get the best results possible from your laser hair removal sessions.
Laser hair reduction eliminates the need for shaving, waxing and plucking. It is a safe and effective procedure that can save you the frustration of dealing with unwanted hair on your legs, arms, underarms, face and back.
The laser emits a specialized light that is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) present in your hair follicles. This leads to the destruction of the follicle and inhibits or prevents future hair growth. The result is a long-lasting and permanent hair removal solution.
At Zeeba Clinic, we use the Cutera Excel HR laser to remove unwanted hair and also improve skin texture, tone, clarity and pigmentation. It is the perfect device to lighten melasma (patches of discoloration that can be triggered by pregnancy, birth control or hormone replacement) and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
It is important to avoid sun exposure and use topical numbing creams before your treatments, as it can affect the effectiveness of the treatment. Also, it is important to shave the area to be treated before your laser treatment, as not doing so can hinder the treatment and cause painful ingrown hairs afterwards.
Unlike shaving or waxing, which removes hair only when it is growing, laser treatment permanently damages the follicle so it never grows back. This can reduce the need to shave or wax, saving time and effort.
The treatment is safe for most skin types and colors, and can be used on any area of the body. It’s important to avoid sun exposure before and after your treatments. Your skin care professional can recommend an effective sunscreen for your specific needs.
Depending on your skin type, you may need several sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. These sessions are quick and painless. A topical numbing cream is available to ensure your comfort.
In addition to reducing unwanted hair, laser therapy also targets blood vessels and spider veins. Your skin can look brighter and healthier after these treatments. They can also reverse the effects of sun damage. This includes red marks, large pores and irregular pigmentation. It can even reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
