There are several laser hair removal systems available today, but they all work using the principle of selective photothermolysis, in which a carefully timed pulse of laser energy passes through the skin and is absorbed and converted to heat energy at the hair follicle. The generated heat energy is designed to destroy the hair follicle so it cannot grow back. Azul Medspa Laser Clinic utilizes the CUTERA LH -YAG laser which is the latest technology available for hair removal and it is FDA-approved to treat all skin types, specializing in dark and tanned skin.
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on a wide variety of factors, including the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle. Your hair grows in regular cycles and there are many factors that influence its growth. One’s age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience. Laser Hair Removal has its greatest effect on hair in the growing stage, also known as the anagen phase of the cycle; as the dormant, or telogen hairs become active, on average about 4-6 weeks after a treatment, some new hair growth will be observed. Multiple laser treatments are necessary for best results. Approximately 9-12 treatments every 4-6 weeks will be necessary for satisfactory, long-lasting results.*
Slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn, may occur in some clients. These effects are typically gone within a few hours, however they could last up to 24 hours. In some instances, hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or hypopigmentation (light spots) may occur; although it is very unlikely, if they do occur it is also not permanent.* Your consultant will review with you the potential side effects from Laser Hair Removal, and answer any more questions you may have.
For your comfort Azul Medspa Laser Clinic uses a GentleYAG laser which utilizes a Dynamic Cooling Device, which is a quick spray of cryogen which cools the skin. Right after the cryogen hits the skin and cools it the laser is fired. A pulse of laser light feels like a small pinch or slight sting similar to the snap of a rubber-band against skin. Primarily because of the Dynamic Cooling Device, no local anesthesia is required and the procedure is well tolerated.
There are certain medical conditions and medications that preclude patients from laser treatment. Certain medications can cause increased photosensitivity and may cause burns if not properly recognized. Azul Laser Clinic will review your medical history prior to treatment. It is imperative to have a certified medical personnel perform all laser procedures for safety reasons.
Laser Hair Removal is a process that utilizes a low-energy laser to gently and easily remove unwanted hair, putting an end to the day to day routine of shaving and waxing. This new advanced technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver effective long-lasting results.* Because the laser treats more than one hair at a time, it is possible to effectively treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs, bikini area and face. Laser treatments leave your skin looking and feeling younger, smoother and silkier. Best of all, laser Hair Removal treatments have proven to be a safe, fast, gentle, and effective alternative method for hair removal.
