LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Many find constantly dealing with unseemly hair to be annoying, having to constantly shave or wax your legs or armpits,
or if you have unwanted upper lip hair, ungainly back or chest hair. Laser hair removal could be a solution to these problems,
allowing you to have peace of mind when it comes to your body hair.
Laser hair removal is just what it sounds like, it is the use of laser light to remove hair from the body. It sounds simple, but it is still a medical procedure that requires training to perform. Unlike traditional methods such as waxing, shaving, bleaching, or using depilatory creams laser removal is permanent as it gets to the root of the problem, destroying hair follicles completely.
Since it is a permanent solution to unwanted hair, laser removal could save you money in the long run, as the average person spends $30,000 and 1400 hours over their lifetime on shaving and waxing.
Resilient One Med Spa offers affordable and effective laser removal treatment for face and body hair.
HOW DOES LASER REMOVAL WORK?
Laser hair removal does not just disintegrate the hair outside the skin or cause the existing hair to fall out, rather it destroys the hair at the root and renders the hair follicle inactive. Hair has three phases of growth but is only affected by laser light when it is in the anagen,
or active growth phase. That is because hair follicles in the active growth phase have the most melanin and it is the melanin that attracts
the energy from the laser.
During treatment, laser energy is directed toward the area being treated. It deeply penetrates the skin and the energy from the laser is transformed into heat, until the follicle reaches the critical temperature that destroys it and prevents further hair growth. While the follicle is impaired, the surrounding skin is unaffected and, in fact, is often improved. Because of the nature of the procedure, laser hair removal leaves the skin feeling smooth. There are no nicks, stubble, razor bumps, or ingrown hairs after the procedure.
Laser Hair Removal requires a series of treatments because it is only effective on hair follicles in the active growth phase. Growth cycles for hair changes from body area to body area. Facial hair typically grows more quickly, and body hair typically has a longer growth cycle. Length between treatments can vary from 4-8 weeks. With each treatment, hair is reduced and for most clients’ best results are seen after eight sessions. The actual number of sessions needed will differ depending on your hair color, hair type, body area, and skin tone.
If you feel additional treatments are needed, we will continue to treat the purchased area at 10% of the per treatment price, until you are satisfied with your results. Many clients enjoy upwards of 15% hair reduction after just a single treatment, and some are 90-95% hair-free in just eight treatments.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?The number of sessions you need will depend on your treatment plan. It can range anywhere from three to eight sessions typically and you may need more. The more serious your skin afflictions the more sessions you will need to correct them. The different treatment methods also factor into the number of sessions needed.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?Treatment time varies depending on the treatments being administered and will vary from patient to patient. Typically, treatments can take anywhere between thirty to ninety minutes, but a more exact number will be given to you at consultation.
ARE SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS PAINFUL?The treatments are designed to be as comfortable as possible, and the applicators have built in features to counteract any pain brought on by the process. However, because the skin is being constantly stimulated throughout the treatment you may still feel some discomfort. Your technician will be right here to adjust settings and make sure you as comfortable as possible.
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL DOWNTIME?There is no downtime with our skin rejuvenation methods because they are all noninvasive treatments. You may have to avoid wearing makeup for a few days, and need to avoid sun exposure, but you should be able to immediately return to your normal activities.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?The results and their staying power will vary from person to person as different skin reacts differently to the treatment. What you can control is how you care for your skin following treatment. With good skin care, such as avoiding direct sun exposure, results last longer. We also recommend a touch up session every six months following treatment for best results.
