troy-novi-mi-laser-hair-removalSay goodbye to the pain, hassle and mess of shaving, waxing and tweezing. Say goodbye to cuts, nicks, stubble and ingrown hair. With laser hair removal, every inch of your body can be as smooth as you want it to be. Our laser hair removal system contains an infrared laser that can selectively target microstructures such as hair follicles. It is very effective for lighter skin types and, because of the relatively low absorption of this light by melanin, it is the best choice when treating darker skin types. Additionally, the ability to safely treat sun-tanned skin makes this the treatment of choice for active individuals.

Can tanned skin be treated?

Tanned skin can be treated safely, but always inform our professionals if you have been tanning, using tanning products, or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks. Our trained professional will adjust your treatment regimen accordingly to give you the safest, most effective experience.

What happens during hair removal treatment?

Our professional will discuss the treatment with you and decide if you need a topical anesthetic cream. The area of your skin that is to be treated will be scanned with laser light. Treatment time will depend upon the area to be treated. A system for cooling your skin will be used to remove heat as it leaves the follicles and should ensure a comfortable treatment. However, since the sensation varies from individual to individual, a topical anesthesia can be provided. Let our technician know if you are very sensitive.

How does it work?

The  laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. Unlike other processes, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. Our lasers’ employs a unique computer guided scanning system that automates the treatment ensuring that your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer sets the parameters and places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to ensure a safe, fast, effective and gentle treatment.

What should I expect after treatment?

Some redness and slight swelling may be present in the area that has been treated; however this should subside within a few hours. If any prolonged redness or swelling occurs, consult our professionals. Keep the treated area clean, use at least SPF 15 sunscreen when outdoors, and follow our professionals’ instructions.

How many treatments will I need?

You may need to be treated 3 to 5 times at intervals of 3 to 8 weeks. There are three phases of hair growth- anagen, catagen and telogen. Only hairs in the active growth phase, anagen can be successfully treated.
