Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laser Hair Removal & How does it work?
Laser Hair Removal is a faster and gentler way to remove unwanted hair, with permanent results. Using leading technologies GentleLASE® and GentleYAG by Candela, precise and controlled pulses of light based energy are applied to target the hair follicles lying beneath the skin’s surface. Emitting a gentle beam of light, the laser energy is absorbed and transformed into heat, destroying the hair follicle and leaving surrounding skin unaffected.
The GentleLASE® features Alexandrite lasers which are effective in targeting both coarse and finer hair. The GentleYAG by Candela specializes in treating all skin types particularly those of tanned, dark or African American tone. It also offers unmatched treatment capabilities in unsightly leg veins, wrinkles and skin tightening procedures.
The system features patented Cryogen cooling system that delivers fine mists between pulses to minimize pain, protect skin, and enable laser energy to gently reach and effectively treat hair follicles. Delivering maximum results with minimal discomfort.
Why Laser Hair Removal?
Unlike conventional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing or depilatories that are time-consuming and only provide short term results, Laser Hair Removal is quick, safe and effective. Employing the world’s most advanced and powerful laser technology, The GentleLASE® and GentleYAG by Candela, to provide long term results with significant hair reduction of up to 85% to 90% after six treatments. It permanently reduces ingrown hair in all skin types, including tanned skin. And, it’s FDA approved.
How should I prepare for a laser treatments?
Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a procedure that requires extensive training to perform and carries potential risks. While our staff of technicians are fully equipped to handle any concerns, we ask that you follow proper laser hair removal preparation procedures to ensure the best treatment possible.
- Do not wax, epilate, or remove hair with the root using any other hair removal method for at least 4 weeks prior to the first session and throughout the course of treatments. Hair needs to be in the follicle in order to be targeted by our laser devices which target the pigment in hair.
- Avoid sun exposure, tanning, or products such as tinted moisturizers 2 weeks prior to and after treatment. These will all cause treatments to be less effective and make complications after treatments more likely.
- Please shave one day prior to treatment- stubble is fine. Shaving more than one day prior to may result in less effective and more uncomfortable treatments.
- Please do not wear makeup to your session for facial hair removal procedure. All traces of makeup must be removed in order to avoid any type of damage from the lasers.
- Inform us if you are currently on the medication Accutane or have been in the last 6 months. This can make your skin more susceptible to damage from the laser.
- Please do not use any retinol products one week prior to your appointment if you are receiving hair removal on your face. This can make your skin more susceptible to damage from the laser.
- For clients who are on antibiotics, please allow two weeks from the last day of your medication to come in for an appointment. Many of these medications can make you photosensitive and susceptible to damage from the lasers.
- Generally it is best to wait 4-6 weeks between treatments. Your laser specialist will help determine how often you should come in based on progress.
What should I expect during a laser hair removal session?
The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of the hair being treated as well as your skin color. Based on these elements, cooling systems will also be adjusted to provide less discomfort.
Next, your technician will emit a pulse of light to the treatment area, assessing the settings as well as monitoring for bad reactions. Given the settings are best for your treatment, the technician will proceed with the session and will check in with you as needed.
When the procedure is completed, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions will be provided to ease any discomfort. Again, we recommend scheduling followup treatments four to six weeks later and continuing treatments until hair growth has stopped.
How many laser hair treatments will I need and how far apart should they be scheduled?
Since various hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, approximately 6 treatments at intervals of 4-8 weeks are necessary to disable most of the follicles in a given area. Treated areas such as the face usually require more frequent treatments whereas legs and back require less.
