WHAT DO TREATMENTS FEEL LIKE?
The HR Excel handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Immediately following your Laser Hair Reduction treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed or purging as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Laser hair reduction can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
WHAT PREPARATION IS REQUIRED?
Let your nurse or dermal therapist know if you have had a recent sunburn, a deep tan or are taking any medication or if you have a fake tan on your skin.
Shave hair off the night before treatment. Please do not wax or pluck hair before during or after your treatment.
After treatment avoid any heat for at least 24 hours as well as extreme sun exposure between two-four weeks regardless of skin type.
Skinstitut Laseraid is recommended for any laser hair removal treatment to reduce heat, inflammation and kill bacteria that may result in an adverse effect on the skin.
