WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the follicles that produce hair. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
HOW WILL LASER REMOVAL BENEFIT YOU?
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. The Candela Laser we use is clinically proven to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair on the face and body. If you are ready to eliminate shaving, tweezing and waxing for good, then this procedure at Wow should be on your calendar.
ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS YOU SHOULD TAKE BEFORE OR AFTER TREATMENT?
Yes! Keep the following in mind to ensure you get the desired results from your treatment:
- Avoid the sun six weeks before and after your treatment, or until your provider allows it.
- The skin should not be tanned at all when having laser treatment.
- If you have a history of cold sores, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.
Discuss the results and improvements you expect to achieve with us at Wow. Together, we can decide if laser hair removal is the best option for you.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT DURING LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal patients will have a one-on-one consultation with a master-trained practitioner at Wow Medi Spa. It may be necessary for the patient and technician to wear appropriate eye protection. A thin layer of cold gel will be applied to the area being treated to protect the skin.
A high repetition rate of short pulses is delivered to the area of unwanted hair. A sweeping motion technique is used to ensure full coverage. Most patients experience little discomfort at the treatment site because of the dynamic cooling device.
However, some discomfort is possible, depending on each person’s individual pain threshold. Topical anesthesia may be requested based on your preference/tolerance – just discuss with your provider in advance of your treatment.
WHAT RESULTS CAN YOU EXPECT?
Patients may experience a change in hair density after as little as one treatment. To achieve total hair removal, our protocol includes six treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. This will guarantee your full satisfaction. To maintain your results, we recommend annual touch-ups as needed.
