How does Laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal emits a concentrated laser that is absorbed by the pigment of the hair. The heat generated during this process damages the individual hair follicles, effectively reducing future hair growth at its source. Treatments are repeated with every hair growth cycle, typically once a month, resulting in finer hair that is lighter in appearance. Overtime, hair growth will halt, and maintenance sessions 1-2 times a year are then needed after you complete your series of initial treatments.
Prior to treatment, patients are required to shave the treatment areas to minimize any burning that occurs from the heat generated. Although the hair is invisible to the naked eye, the laser light is still able to locate the hair pigment and follicle.
As the hair follicles are targeted, there is a shedding period where the hair is pushed out and falls out naturally, leaving you with smooth, hairless skin. This occurs within a week of treatment as the dead hair is expelled from the follicle. You can expect this to continue for about two weeks after every treatment.
Laser hair removal is the superior method of removing unwanted hair. After a proper series of treatments, you can expect any hair growth to be very fine, and you will notice smoother skin. Typically, near-permanent hair reduction is achieved; however, occasional maintenance treatments can be carried out as needed.
Am I a good candidate?
How well laser hair removal procedures perform depends on your individual skin and hair type. The combination of coarse, dark hair and light skin is the easiest to treat; however, patients of all skin colors can benefit from this procedure.
It’s important to note this treatment is not meant to remove finer light hair or peach fuzz.
Am I a good candidate?
If a surgical facelift is out of the question for you and you’re looking for a quick lift, you are a great candidate. The PDO thread lift delivers the best results in patients with moderate signs of aging and skin laxity. This is an excellent option for those looking for rejuvenation but don’t want the extensive recovery time of facelift surgeries and other invasive cosmetic treatments.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
There is minimal pain in areas such as the back, legs and arms, and the sensation is typically described as a small rubber band snap. In sensitive areas such as the upper lip, numbing cream and ice packs are optional; however, this treatment is well tolerated by patients.
Laser hair removal and skin types
Laser hair removal at Lotus Elite Aesthetics can be tailored for use on a variety of skin colors and tones. Your treatment provider will discuss your individualized treatment plan with you during your initial consult.
Ideal candidates have hair color that is darker than their skin color, as the laser works by emitting energy that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair.
Recovery and downtime
Directly after treatment, a cortisol cream may be applied to alleviate any swelling and irritation that occurs; however, this typically subsides within a day. Burning and blisters are not common side effects of laser hair removal.
You will need to refrain from strenuous activities such as exercise or hot showers that heat up the skin to prevent any irritation to the hair follicles, as they will be sensitive 24-48 hours after treatment.
In addition, you are required to avoid excessive sun exposure, tanning, and spray tanning, two weeks before and after your treatment.
