Laser Hair Removal
About Laser Hair Removal
For removing hair and creating sleek, smooth skin, laser hair removal is a non-invasive method that works to terminate hairs at the root source and reduce future growth within just a few sessions. This innovative technique has been approved by the FDA and its benefits can be enjoyed by men and women, of all skin tones and types. When performed by a professional, it is a completely safe, highly-effective, and virtually pain-free approach to permanent hair removal for the body and face.
At Derma Elegant, laser hair removal technology can be used to effectively treat any one - or more - of the following areas:
How it Works
Laser hair removal is a proven technique that has been popular for nearly two decades. It works by focusing an intensified pulse of laser light on the melanin - also known as the color component - of individual hair follicles. Once light and heat are absorbed by the melanin, the follicles are weakened and eventually destroyed, meaning that they can no longer produce new hair growth.
Because melanin must be present for this procedure to be effective, laser hair removal works best on black, brown, reddish brown, or dark blond terminal hairs on the face or body. White, gray or light blonde hairs are less likely to respond to treatment.
Key Benefits of Treatment
If you are ready to save yourself the time and hassle of daily shaving or monthly waxing, laser hair removal is an amazing option. Following your first laser hair removal appointment, you will begin to notice a reduction in hair growth, which will lead to permanent hairlessness after multiple sessions. The outcome of laser hair removal will vary slightly depending on your skin type and the area treated, but most clients report optimal results within just three to eight visits!
At Derma Elegant, our experienced technicians will work with you to determine the number of sessions needed and help you achieve your ultimate goals for your skin. We work with some of the highest-quality laser technology equipment available in order to provide safe, professional treatments, and deliver flawless results.
What to Expect
At your first visit, your professional provider will conduct a comprehensive consultation and skin analysis, as treatment can be tailored to all skin types and tones. The length of sessions will depend on the areas where laser hair removal is being performed, but all protocols are designed to be as quick and effective as possible.
During treatment, most clients report only mild discomfort, such as a slight stinging sensation, and we will always work to ensure your safety and comfort. Compared to other hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, or electrolysis, laser hair removal is much less painful and there is no downtime following the procedure. After effects may include some redness, swelling, or sensitivity in the areas treated. However, these types of reactions are minimal and should subside very quickly.
