Laser Hair Removal

Hair reduction and removal are some of the most popular applications of laser technology today. Traditional laser hair removal uses concentrated beams of optical light to damage hair follicles without harming the surrounding tissues. But because most standard laser technology only targets the pigment, or melanin, in the hair follicles, traditional laser hair removal treatments only yielded results for those with dark, coarse hair and a fair complexion.

The elōs Plus laser, however, allows for successful and safe laser hair removal treatments on all patients regardless of their hair color, type of hair or skin color. Due to the combined RF and optical energy, the hair follicles are treated both above and below the skin’s surface, resulting in an immediate reduction of hair growth with the most optimal results observed after several treatment sessions. During your initial consultation, one of our laser specialists will help you determine how many treatments will be necessary to achieve the results you desire.

Laser hair removal treatments can last anywhere from several seconds for smaller areas like the chin and lips to 30 minutes for larger areas like the legs and back. While most patients experience little to no discomfort during their treatment, you will be given the option to add a topical numbing cream to your skin before your procedure for an additional cost. You may experience mild redness or swelling after your appointment; however, these symptoms will generally subside within 1 to 2 days after your treatment.


Does laser hair removal hurt?2023-09-12T16:28:25+00:00

For most people, laser hair removal does not hurt. However, it all depends on your threshold for pain. Most people say that it feels like snapping a rubber band against the skin. But if you’re overly sensitive to pain, you may experience some minor discomfort.

Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the discomfort. Prepare properly and follow a strict aftercare program. This will reduce pain and provide the most effective results.

Is laser hair removal safe?2023-09-12T16:29:21+00:00

How does laser hair removal work?2023-09-12T16:30:25+00:00

Laser hair removal involves the use of laser pulses. These pulses emit light into the skin that destroys the root and follicle of the hair. When the root and follicle are destroyed, hair can no longer grow. For this process to work, the hair must be targeted during an active growth phase. However, individual hairs usually grow at different rates. Therefore, it takes several treatment sessions to capture every hair in the growth phase and produce optimal results.

How long does laser hair removal last?2023-09-12T16:31:18+00:00

Some people see permanent results, while some people may need a touch-up treatment every six to twelve months. Results vary depending on your hair type and skin type. Proper preparation and aftercare can also affect how long the results last.

How do you prepare for laser hair removal?2023-09-12T16:33:15+00:00

To prepare for laser hair removal, avoid plucking, waxing, and tanning for six weeks prior to your first treatment.

Take a shower and shave right before your treatment, but don’t apply any lotions, moisturizers, or sunscreens to the skin.

Can you get laser hair removal if you’re pregnant?2023-09-12T16:34:34+00:00

It is best to play it safe and avoid laser hair removal while you’re pregnant.

To protect your unborn baby, wait until after you’ve given birth to begin laser hair removal treatment.

Are there side effects to laser hair removal?2023-09-12T16:38:48+00:00

The side effects are minimal. This is one of the primary benefits of laser hair removal. Some people experience temporary redness, itching, and swelling of the skin right after treatment. These side effects usually go away within a few hours, and most can be soothed by applying aloe vera to the treated area. In rare cases, some people may see scars, burns, or blisters. But these side effects usually occur only in people who do not follow the proper aftercare plan.
