Laser hair removal permanently reduces unwanted hair. Laser Hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body for men and women, from small areas such as your upper lip, underarms, bikini area, chin, neck, and face, to larger areas such as arms, chest, back, and legs.
The ideal candidate will have brown to black hair as the laser is not able to treat gray, white, blonde or light red hair.
The Laser Hair Removal works by sending a beam of laser light and radio frequencies to the hair follicles with enough power to disable or destroy the root, but not enough power to harm the skin or cause discomfort. Depending upon the area treated and hair growth, at least five treatments are recommended for ultimate results. Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa has specialized lasers that are effective on a variety of skin tones and hair colors.
Patient may not pluck, wax, use a depilatory or undergo electrolysis in the areas they wish to have treated for 6 weeks prior to laser hair removal. The patient should only shave or trim the area before treatment. Patient should not tan the areas to be treated for 4 weeks prior to treatment or use self-tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
Some redness and swelling may occur in the treated area after treatment. However, this should resolve within several hours to several days after treatment. Tanning should also be avoided for at least one month after treatment.
