The laser hair reduction process takes time and patience. From head to toe we can reduce your returning hair growth with each visit by 20% .
The laser is attracted to the pigment (color) in the hair follicle. The laser energy targets the follicle to illuminate or slow the growth of the hair. The darker and coarser the hair the better the result.
Her are some commonly asked questions…
Does it hurt?
It is not fluff n’ love but it is quick and efficient! My Cutera Laser has a cool glide tip to protect and pre-chill the skin.
How long does the benefit last?
The more you are compliant with your specific guidelines the better .
Are there any side effects?
It is usually quick, effective with minimal discomfort. The lip does hurt so numbing or ice is always and option. With any elective service you can have a reaction, that’s why it is important you do a consultation with us prior.
Do hormones (menstrual cycle) effect pain and hair growth ?
Yes! Our estrogen and progesterone fluctuate during our cycle this can increase the pain and hormones can effect the growth of hair .
Can laser hair removal increase hair growth initially?
Yes I can I can bring up dormant hairs and hair follicles. This is good as it will aid in reduction all around.
What type of laser do you use?
I use Cutera an American-made laser and I was certified in 2004 at MN Vascular Center . This laser is a 1064 Yag wavelength which means I can do laser hair reduction on any ethnicity from Fitzpatrick 1-6 (a scale used to measure skin color and tone).
