Laser Hair Removal
Am I A Candidate?
Laser hair removal works when the light beams are absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft and follicle. People with dark hair are considered the best candidates. Blonde, gray, and strawberry-blonde hair may not absorb the laser light.
Each person responds differently to laser hair removal. Some may require more treatments than others. And sometimes laser hair removal can’t eliminate hair completely. If some hair does grow back, it’s usually thinner and finer than before the treatment.
Before Your Treatment
You can prepare for laser hair removal by not waxing or plucking hairs in the treatment area for 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment; hair follicles must be present to be treated. You can still shave and, in fact, you’ll be asked to shave your treatment area a minimum of 24 hours before your scheduled appointment.
Because laser hair removal depends on the color
of your skin and hair, you should not sun tan for a
minimum of 4-6 weeks before your treatment.
Quickly and easily eliminates unwanted hair from all parts of the body, leaving the skin velvety smooth. The daily upkeep of facial and body hair can be quite time consuming for some clients.
Having to deal with red irritated bumpy skin, unwanted hair and ingrown hairs from shaving, threading, plucking and waxing can be embarrassing.
Medisthetics & Laser Clinic uses a Diode Laser proven safe and comfortable for almost all skin types, even tanned skin! All laser treatments are performed by a Medical Aesthetic and Laser Technician to ensure optimal safety and results.
MD Laser Clinic offers Laser Hair Removal by a licensed technician, a small hand-held laser device used to deliver the light beams is placed on the treatment area. You might experience some mild discomfort during the session-like the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin.
A Tylenol can be taken 40 minutes before your session, if needed. During the procedure you’ll wear tinted goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light.
For each treatment area, we typically schedule 6 to 8 sessions about 4 to 6 weeks apart.
After Your Treatment
There may be some mild redness or bumps (Erythema) immediately after the treatment, but nothing expected to keep you from your daily activities. You don’t need time to recover after your session,However, you should avoid saunas, hot tubs, pools and excessive workouts. In most cases; and small areas treated, you can participate in almost all your regular activities immediately after your appointment. You should, however, avoid exposure to the sun for the following 4 to 6 weeks.
Are There Any Risks?
Laser hair removal is a safe procedure, but there are some risks. Some people may experience redness, swelling, bruising, blistering, or superficial skin erosions that are temporary and heal with time. Another risk is skin discoloration, which can last for several months or may be permanent.
The hair is cut off at the skin surface and you will see and feel stubble in a few days.
Shaving is required every few days to achieve that smooth-skin feel.
Ingrown hairs can become a problem, escalating to folliculitis (inflamed hair follicles, red tender spots, can have a surface pustule). These are often called "red bumpies".
If folliculitis occurs on the groin area, it can put a rider off the bike for a period of time.
The red bumpies are ugly.
