Hair Reduction Candidates
Laser hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Your provider will determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.
Lumenis LightSheer Duet Laser – Permanent Hair Reduction
Now there is a fast and virtually pain-free, answer to laser hair removal: High-Speed LightSheer Duet Laser, an innovative removal method that reduces treatment times by up to 75%. High-Speed LightSheer Duet for Hair Reduction makes even larger body areas such as shoulders and backs, chests or legs more efficient and affordable. High-Speed LightSheer Duet Laser is the world’s most advanced treatment for effective removal of unwanted hair.
The High-Speed LightSheer DUET is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair reduction alternatives.
Laser hair reduction requires multiple treatments. This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time.
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure and the skin type. Side effects are rare and, if they do occur, are typically minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which is, in fact, positive clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away.
Cynosure Vectus Laser – Permanent Hair Reduction
Cynosure Vectus is clinically-proven technology that targets and destroys cells responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding skin. It’s a simple approach to permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy, and FDA-cleared. Light-based hair removal can work for almost everyone, including all skin colors and most hair types.
Laser hair reduction treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas. Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure. Several laser hair removal treatments are recommended for the best results. Your treatment provider can help tailor a plan just for you. You do not need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.
Some typical side effects of laser hair removal include a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness), accompanied by some minor swelling immediately following the treatment. These effects may last a few days. You can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
