Our diode laser has the fastest hair removal delivery technology along with an integrated contact cooling sapphire tip. It is lightweight and glides over the skin with minimal discomfort, if any. With its large spot size, the laser can quickly remove hair from large areas of the body. Popular hair removal body areas include:
The following information does not take precedence over formal pre-post instructions given by your healthcare provider.
All laser hair reduction treatments take at least 6-8 sessions. Hair grows in repeating cycles, and only in the actively growing phase does the hair contain enough pigment to absorb sufficient energy to disable the hair follicle. When hair is in the dormant phase, it has little or no pigment, and it cannot absorb the laser light.
Performing laser hair removal treatments 4-8 weeks apart (depending on the body area being treated) will give the highest chance of treating most of the hair follicles in the area during their active phase.
1. Avoid direct sun exposure, tanning bed, and sunless tanning products for 4 weeks prior to each treatment and the duration of treatments. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide daily. Tanned skin has extra melanin, which attracts laser energy, and can result in burning and/or other complications.
2. Do not pluck, tweeze, wax, undergo stringing or electrolysis, use depilatory creams or bleach, or any other unwanted hair treatments that remove hair from its root for at least 4 weeks prior to laser treatments. The laser is attracted to melanin, therefore hair needs to be in the follicle.
3. Shave the area to be treated 1-3 days prior to your visit
4. Avoid applying lotion, sunscreen, perfume, deodorants, or cosmetics to the skin surface before the laser treatment.
