For many women, unwanted hair can be a nightmare.
Getting rid of it can be painful. Until now the only options for removing unwanted hair were smelly hair removal creams, sharp razors, stinging wax or painful electrolysis needles. Our advanced approach to beautiful skin provides the ultimate solution. Now, men and women alike will be pleased with the results made possible by our Laser Hair Removal process.
What is the Laser Hair Removal process?
Laser Hair Removal uses a low-energy laser to gently remove unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. This advanced technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long-lasting results. Because the laser treats more than one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face. Laser treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. Best of all, Laser Hair Removal treatments are a safe, fast, gentle, and effective alternative method for hair removal.
What are the benefits of SoftLight Laser Hair removal?
- Larger areas may be treated at one time. · It works equally well with light or dark hair and skin.
- Less pain and discomfort compared to other hair removal treatments.
- Combines the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis.
- Our laser is effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, younger-looking hair-free skin is desired.
How is Laser Hair Removal different from electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a much slower process. With electrolysis a needle is actually inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard hair growth. Laser scans the treatment area and within minutes all of the hairs in the laser’s beam are treated. Most patients who have had both procedures say that Laser Hair Removal is less painful, faster and more convenient.
Can all hair colors and parts of the body be treated?
The system’s unique design offers you customized treatment, according to your hair color texture, and its location on the body. Our laser can remove black hair from all parts of the body including the chin, upper lip, cheeks, legs, arms, underarms and back – as well as sensitive areas like the ears, nose, chest, and bikini line.
What are the laser treatments like?
Laser Hair Removal is a gentle three-step process. First, we gently cleanse the area to be treated. Next, we shave the area. Then the area is scanned with the laser. The laser energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. In a fraction of a second, all of the treated hair follicles are disabled.
Treatments can last from a few minutes to one hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience some short-term side effects. This may include slight reddening of the skin or local swelling which goes away within a few days. In rare instances there may be some blistering.
For patients with dark Skin, we have formulated special creams to be used before and after the procedure to minimize the risk of the occurrence of temporary dark spots in the treated area.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, your skin type and your hair’s growth cycle. We treat until the hair is gone. Usually two to three treatments are sufficient; however, your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.
The laser slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Treatment results will vary from patient to patient depending on skin and hair color.
Note: Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. The opposite is usually the case. The laser may cause hair to come back slower and thinner.
