What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a revolutionary procedure which uses laser technology to safely remove unwanted hair.
A device emitting a beam of concentrated light which is absorbed into the skin’s pigment (melanin). The light energy is then concerted into heat, which damages the tube-shaped hair follicles within the skin. As a result, future hair growth in the area is prevented or delayed.
While very effective in the long-term, laser hair removal is not fully permanent. We will treat your skin with multiple treatments to prevent hair regrowth.
Laser hair removal includes a variety of treatment locations, including legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and the bikini line. It is safe for use everywhere on the body except the eyelids.
Julian Anthony's would be happy to answer any questions you have pertaining to our laser hair removal treatment!
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
Prior to your hair removal appointment, you will be scheduled for a consultation. Your specialist will go over your medical history, including skin conditions or scarring and any medication use.
For up to six weeks before the procedure, it is recommended you stay out of the sun. Be sure to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen if you’re going to be exposed to the sun.
As plucking, waxing, and electrolysis can damage hair follicles and affect the results of laser hair removal, these methods for hair removal should be avoided for four weeks before your appointment.
During the Treatment
You will be scheduled for two to six treatments depending on your treatment locations and objectives. The frequency of the treatments depends on the location of hair removal—from 4-8 weeks for areas of fast hair growth, to 12-16 weeks for areas with slower hair growth.
During the procedure, you will wear special sunglasses for protection against the laser light. A hand-held laser device will be held to your skin, against the area in question. Either a cooling device or a gel will be used to provide coolness and relief. Some clients feel a very slight warm sensation or mild discomfort, while many feel nothing at all.
The length of the procedure varies from a few minutes to over an hour, depending on treatment areas.
Laser Hair Removal Results
For the first several hours after the treatment, slight skin redness and swelling is common. You may apply ice to the treated area to reduce any irritation.
Hair will not immediately fall out, but will be shed over several days to weeks. After that, hair will be removed for several months to years, depending on the client.
