HAIR REMOVAL

Unwelcome hair growth can be embarrassing.  There are so many options for hair removal but sometimes it’s hard to know if they are worth it.  Shaving and creams might be a quick fix but they only get rid of hair at the surface.  Waxing and threading can deliver longer lasting results but they can be painful and time consuming.

We can permanently reduce unwanted hair on your face and body.  You can finally enjoy smooth, hair free skin with results that last much longer than traditional methods.

 

SOLUTION

Our hair removal treatment targets and destroys the follicle under the skin’s surface.  Over time, this significantly reduces hair growth, with results that last longer than shaving, waxing, plucking or creams.

2) I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?


Yes. Laser hair removal treatments can be done on darker skin tones; however, it does work best for light to medium skin tones. Although this may work on darker skin tones, there may be a higher risk of discoloration. It’s best to consult with the technician to see if the treatment is right for you. For both types of treatments, the technician will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your complexion, to assess your skin’s reaction. He/she would know best what treatment parameters are most appropriate to use for your skin type.




3) How many sessions will I need to see results?


Most patients receive 6-10 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person’s skin type, hair color and texture, and the area being treated.




4) How ofter or far apart will each session be?


Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.




5) How long does each treatment session take?


It depends on where you’re getting the treatment—an upper lip will be much faster than both legs.




6) What does the treatment feel like?


You’ll feel some heat in the area, but this will only last a short while, thanks to the real-time cooling system that kicks in right away to help minimize discomfort.
For IPL hair removal, it feels like the light snap with an elastic band against your skin as the applicator moves around the treatment area.




7) Will the treatment be painful?


The applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like along the bikini line. If you find it too uncomfortable, settings can be adjusted to make you more confortable.




8) How long will the results last, and are they permanent?


It depends on how your hair grows. Some people may see longer-lasting hair removal, while others who see sporadic hair growth in the area may need a touch-up treatment to maintain the results.




9) Is there any downtime?


No. There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
