How Does it work?
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light is emitted through the chilled sapphire tip that is placed on the epidermis or top of skin. Using either the Vectus Diode or the LightSheer™ Diode, the beam of light is absorbed by the pigment or color located in hair follicles.
The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling thousands of follicles at a time to eliminate and significantly impede the hair’s growth. LightSheer™Diode Laser and the newest Laser hair removal machine called the Vectus both have a special contact-cooling hand-piece. It directs the laser energy to the hair root while protecting and cooling the surrounding skin.
What does laser hair removal feel like?
The laser can feel like a light pick or snap, depending on color and density of hair.The unique chill tip allows us to treat very sensitive skin and even children may have virtually pain-free laser treatments. Laser treatment itself may cause a slight tingling sensation or warming sensation. Most patients tolerate the procedure well and have no down time so they may return to their normal activities the same day.
How many treatments will I need?
The hair growth cycle consists of the Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen phases. Laser hair removal is most effective while hair is in the Anagen phase, when the hair is still growing and the root or papilla’s follicle is full of melanin or color. The Catagen and Telogen phases are resting or shedding periods and occur after the hair has lived its lifecycle of 8-10 weeks. Because the individual hairs of the body go through this growth cycle at separate times, each batch or cycle of hair must be treated on schedule for best results. More than one laser treatment is necessary to target every hair at the right time
How long does a session last?
The length of a laser session may be a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated.
What can I expect after my treatment?
The appearance of the treated area immediately after a laser session will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of treatment and skin type. Immediate after effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling, which disappear in a short time. Most people return to normal activity immediately.
