What to Know About Laser Hair Removal at Simply Laser
Considering laser hair removal? At Simply Laser, we use an award-winning, medical-grade machine to remove hair on all parts of the body, for both men and women with light and dark skin tones. Our Cynosure Elite Plus machine ensures your laser treatment is cost effective, efficient, safe and requires no downtime. Here's everything to know about this treatment.
Our Laser Hair Removal Machines
Our certified laser specialists are very experienced with our machines. In recent years, there have been remarkable advances in laser technology. We can remove unwanted hair safely using the Cynosure lasers (Alexandrite and Nd:Yag). The Alexandrite Laser is designed for lighter skin tones, while the Nd:Yag is for darker skin tones.
A Bit About the Treatment
Using a high energy, narrowly focused laser beam that is directed at the growing hair, the pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light and converts it to heat. This heat then damages the follicle, destroying its ability to regrow.
Laser treatments for hair removal are spaced between 4-6 weeks apart. Clients will need anything from 8 - 12 treatments however, many clients may need more than 12 sessions. Ultimately, it depends on the individual. After completing a laser treatment session, you will notice significantly reduced hair growth and the hair that does grow back is a lot finer than the original
What to Do Pre-Treatment
Before laser hair removal, there are a few things you need to consider in preparation for your appointment:
- Stay out of the sun for at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
- Avoid using any spray tans or self-tanning lotions at least one week before your treatment.
- Shave the area the night before or on the morning of your appointment.
What About Aftercare?
Immediately after your treatment, the area may feel like you have mild sunburn. This should only last for a couple of hours. Always use SPF50 on treated areas and avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks post treatment. We also recommend avoiding waxing between laser sessions - only shave if necessary.
