Comfortable Laser Treatment for Hair Removal

Reduce or Eliminate Unwanted Hair

Let’s face it. Unwanted body and facial hair has got to be one of the most annoying things to deal with.

Shaving is short lived, and waxing is super painful. Of course hiding it doesn’t make wardrobe options very easy does it? If you like the look of fresh, smooth, hair-free skin then you’ve probably considered laser hair removal. It’s a fact that laser hair removal is one of the most popular laser treatments in the country.

Hair removal with a diode laser provides noticeable results quickly with less treatments than the alternative. They are performed as a series to target hair as it reaches the mature growth stage. The other benefit is it’s safe for all skin types. Read on to see how it works.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Stop in-grown hairs

Let’s face it. Shaving, especially the bikini area, has a high risk of causing ingrown hairs. Some are more prone to this than others and can just about guarantee it will happen post shave. These unsightly bumps make it difficult to wear certain swimsuits can leave us feeling defeated. Many people choose laser hair removal to eliminate ingrown hairs and razor bumps for good.

Address Hard to Reach Places

Most people shave in the shower, bending and twisting to make sure they do a thorough job. Only to find out later, they missed some key areas. Shaving the back is one of the most difficult, if not impossible, feats to accomplish on your own. Some people resort to covering up rather than continuing to battle body hair. Laser hair removal is a simple solution to remove hair from
those hard to reach places.

Reduce Odors

Odor causing bacteria thrives in damp, warm areas. Sweat itself is odorless, but bacteria thrives on the skin and hair causing an unpleasant smell. Multiple studies have found that the removal of hair decreasing body odor significantly, much more than washing alone. For this reason, many people opt for laser hair removal.

Save Time

Taking the time every (other) morning to shave armpits, legs, bikini and anywhere else you have unwanted hair growing requires planning. If we don’t plan just right, it doesn’t get done as often as we’d like it to. That trade off is eliminated when opting for laser hair removal. Hair regrows much more slowly, less course, and we strive for at least a 90% reduction. Imagine the time that saves you.

FAQ

Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

By using a specialized diode laser, we are able to specifically target the hair’s follicle and damage it. Specifically, it breaks up a pigment called melanin. This disrupts the hair’s ability to grow and regenerate. Each hair is in a different growth stage, even if you don’t shave or wax. The treatment is repeated a few times to treat the hair that was not yet mature.

How Many Treatments Does Hair Removal Take?

Darker, courser hair, like the bikini area, typically requires less treatments than finer hair found on the face or armpit. The lower end would be around 5 treatments, and fine hair could take up to 10. We suggest scheduling a consultation so we can take a look and give you a good idea of what to expect.

Is Hair Removal Painful?

It can be for some, but Vanish, Inc. utilizes a specially designed laser with a cooling head to help mitigate the pain. A fluffy mustache may take 1 minute, while both your legs will take 25-30 minutes.

Do I Need To Do Anything Before My Treatment?

Avoiding sun exposure for a few weeks prior to your treatment will help make your treatments more effective. Also, do not pluck or wax for 4 weeks prior to your treatment as it removes the hair follicle that we are targeting. Shave (or dermaplane) the area the day before your treatment.

What Should I Avoid After My Treatment?

Avoid sun exposure for at least 7 days after your treatment. Use at least an spf 30 sunscreen. If you develop a blister, never pop it as it will resolve completely on it’s own. Do not treat yourself to any additional laser treatments or chemical peels for 2 weeks.

How Does This Compare With IPL Or Electrolysis?

Diode lasers typically require fewer treatments than IPL or a q-switch laser. In addition, it is safe for all skin types. Electrolysis sessions treat each hair, one at a time, taking significantly longer to perform. Because of this, multiple electrolysis visits may be needed to treat larger areas. In contrast, diode lasers can quickly treat large areas, completing it in a single session. One of the best benefits is that our laser hair removal treatments are completely painless.
