What is Laser?
Since the invention of the laser in 1960, it has established itself in all branches of science and technology. Today, modern medicine cannot be imagined without lasers. (The first dermatological application by Goldmann dates back to 1963). Laser is the acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation“.
The laser is a light source emitting a narrow beam. This beam has a defined wavelength and its uniform waves propagate with little divergence, i.e. almost parallel (collimated). Lasers are available in the wave ranges from ultraviolet to infrared with laser powers ranging from a few fractions of a milliwatt for applications in diagnostics to the kilowatt range of high-power lasers for use in industry. If excitation is continuous, the laser is referred to as continuous-wave laser (cw); if excitation is performed by a single pulse, the laser is called a pulsed laser. If the excitation energy is accumulated and then suddenly released, the laser is referred to as a Q-switched laser.
Laser Special Packages
Q: How often do I come in for a Laser Hair Removal treatment?
A: We recommend that our clients schedule their appointments every 6-8 weeks apart for best results. We will not schedule appointments under 6 weeks apart. After you have received 6-8 sessions, a touch up package may be needed spaced out 8-12 weeks apart until all the hair is removed.
Q: How many sessions do I need for permanent Laser Hair Removal?
A: Typically you will need 6-8 sessions to have up to 80-90% hair reduction. On larger areas and less coarse hairs more sessions may be required for optimal results.
Q: Will my hair grow back?
A: No, it won’t. We offer permanent laser hair removal and has treated hundreds of successful cases. If an area treated in hormonal such as your chin or any access facial hairs more sessions may be required as you may continue to grow new hairs. The treatment works to damage the hair follicle so that it cannot regrow new hair. However, it’s possible that a few hair follicles will manage to escape partially the laser during the treatment. But don’t worry. You only need to be retreated to resolve this predicament.
Q: Do I need to take a leave at work for the treatment sessions?
A: We offer late evening hours and weekend appointments. Our Super Hair Removal technology goes 10 times as fast as other lasers in the market available to date. Most of our clients can even sneak away on their lunch break. Fortunately for those who can’t afford to miss a day at work, weekend hours are available. Since our treatments are pain-free, you don’t need to undergo a recovery process. After the treatment, you can return to work right away.
Q: Will it hurt?
A: Our technology is generally pain free. If you have a low pain tolerance, we do recommend a Lidocaine 5mg topical ointment to apply 15 minutes prior to service. Most of our clients describe laser hair removal as a warm heat sensation on your skin.
Q: What do I need to do in preparation for my appointment?
A: We recommend that you lightly exfoliate and shave treatment areas the night before or morning of your appointment. If you do not shave, you may wax the treatment areas one week before your appointment. Clients that do not come prepared may be subject to an extra charge for preparation or may be declined service due to timing. Please be prepared for your appointment to avoid complications.
