What is Laser Hair Removal?

 

Laser hair removal is a gradual process of permanent hair reduction. The laser is passed over the hair area and the laser light is pulsed over the hair shaft to heat and destroy it.

What to Expect From Laser Hair Removal

 

A “Good” response from the laser hair removal treatment is a reduction in the hair by 80-100%. This will likely require 5-8 treatments on the body and 7-10 treatments on the face. Treatments are done every 4+ weeks for optimal results. It is important to understand that this is an estimate based on our experience and the supporting medical literature. Results are very individual.

What We Guarantee

When we do work on human body, it is completely impossible to accurately predict your exact response. Genetics, hormones, medications…etc. can cause each of us to respond differently to the treatments.

Side Effects and Risks

Some normal side effects may occur after laser hair removal treatments, including itching, pink skin, redness, and swelling around the treatment area or swelling of the follicles (follicular edema). These side effects rarely last more than two or three days. The two most common serious side effects are acne and skin discoloration. Some level of pain should also be expected during treatments. Icing the area after the treatment helps relieve the side effects faster. Unwanted side effects such as hypo- or hyper-pigmentation or, in extreme cases, burning of the skin call for an adjustment in laser selection or settings.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing technique that is safe and effective to improve the appearance of aged skin, wrinkles, colour, and skin texture. It leaves the skin radiant, smooth, and hydrated. This treatment also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, relatively pain free, and non-surgical. The length of the treatment or the number of treatments depend on the patient’s skin type, skin tone, texture

Microdermabrasion can treat

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots, sun damage and hyper pigmentation
  • Acne scar, chicken pox scars and scratch marks
  • Congested skin, enlarged pores and blemishes
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Oily skin

Microdermabrasion may be very useful for people with active acne, mild acne discoloration, pick marks, and very superficial or raised acne scars. Dermatologists use microdermabrasion to help unclog pores and clear acne. Often used in combination with gentle glycolic peels and medical acne extractions, microdermabrasion can help speed up acne clearing. Individuals with deeper acne scars may expect a much longer series of treatments.
