Lasers designed for permanent hair reduction emit wavelengths of light designed to be absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). The ability of the laser to produce a very narrow bandwidth on a consistent basis is the key to a safe and efficient treatment. Be aware that hair removal systems that use traditional light for treatment like Intense Pulse Light machines(IPLs) are not true hair removal lasers. These devices use a highly concentrated beam of traditional incoherent light, often in conjunction with a cream or gel, to burn the hair shaft. A serious flaw with these systems is that they lack the laser's ability to produce a selective bandwidth of light that will only affect the hair shaft (selective photothermolysis), so they will heat up all of the surrounding tissue. IPLs are generally cheaper devices and are used for various skin procedures . “True” lasers achieve better, faster and safer results for hair removal purposes.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures. If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is the best worth considering option.
OUR LASER EQUIPMENT
If you compare laser hair removal offers, you’ll find that every provider claims to have the best technology. What the vast majority of centers don’t do, however, is tell you why. Simply stated, for most skin types, Alexandrite lasers provide the very best in permanent hair removal. In our practice we considered the geographical and population features and chose Alexandrite laser that is more effective than any another lasers because they can more effectively target the melanin within each hair follicle while safely avoiding injury to the surrounding skin. As we specialise in laser hair removal, we have identified the most advanced platform so that we can deliver the very best in permanent hair reduction. To ensure the highest level of comfort, we couple our system with the most effective cooling device on the market- Zimmer CRYO 6. By comparison, there is no contact between the laser aperture and the skin when the laser beam is applied to your skin which leads to better feeling and hygiene of the customer. The shorter wavelength of these platforms is far more effectively absorbed by the hair follicle – an essential property for effective hair removal. In addition, patient comfort is higher with an Alexandrite, as the longer wavelengths of the Nd:YAG and Diode lasers cause more pain and are also absorbed more by the surrounding tissue. For the greatest results in laser hair removal, choose us as we have simply the best technology. The Alexandrite laser is considered by many in the field of laser hair removal to be the gold standard laser. Our FDA and CE certified approved laser platform is specially chosen for its safety and our certified team of laser professionals ensures the highest level of achieving results.
In order to realise the highest level of efficacy, it’s important to review these pre and post treatment considerations. We’ll review these at the time of making your appointment and answer any questions you may have. By doing so, we’re able to provide the highest level of care while guaranteeing the best results.
Before: Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor performing the procedure. You should also avoid sun exposure for 4 weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely:
During: You and the doctor will need to wear appropriate eye protection. Everyone's pain tolerance is different, but compared to waxing the treatment has very little discomfort. It resembles a rubber band snapping against the skin for a quick second with each pulse. Next, it is possible that the doctor will give a pulse to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions. When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, to ease any discomfort.
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. The most popular areas are female facial hair, bikini line hair and back hair for men.
Treatment times vary according to size of area to be treated, but generally small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour, most areas are covered in a matter of minutes.
The time between treatments depends on the treated area and the quality of treatment you receive. If the laser is done on upper lip, chin or any area on the face it should be spaced out 4-6 weeks apart. For the body areas, it should be repeated every 6-8 weeks. Facial hair grows faster than lower body hair and it should be done more often. In order for the laser to be effective, you should try to keep up with your appointments and follow the technician's recommendations for the length of time between your treatments.
Usually, treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart to start, and gradually move to 6-8 weeks apart after the initial 2-3 treatments. After 4-6 treatments or so, patients should experience a considerable percentage of hair reduction. Depending upon hair type and genetic factors, some clients may require additional treatments beyond these initial treatments.
Once we destroy a hair follicle, it will never produce hair again. Any remaining hair follicles will produce hairs that are lighter and thinner, requiring much less attention than before. Again, we offer clearance of roughly 85-99%, with some variation from person to person. New hair follicles may form over time as a result of aging, hormonal changes, and individual genetics. For these reasons, some clients elect to schedule annual touch-up treatments to maintain their results.
Clinical studies show that with the our laser platform coupled with a learned practitioner, permanent hair reduction of roughly 85-99% can be achieved. INNOVA uses the most powerful and clinically proven technology and licensed medical professions to ensure the best possible results.There are however, many different factors that can influence the effectiveness of treatment, such things include hair color and coarseness, skin tone as well as hormonal changes and other genetic considerations.
