50% OFF SMALL AREAS
Laser treatment for unwanted hair is a non-invasive approach to permanent reduction and long-term hair removal. Treatment is designed to eliminate hair from all parts of the body. Laser therapy leaves your skin feeling smoother and softer. Research indicates that between 20% to 30% of all hair follicles are in the growing to anagen stage at any time. As a result multiple treatments are required. An average of 5-7 treatments that are between 4-6 weeks apart are needed for optimal results.
Laser Hair Reduction has been FDA approved to last minimum 2-4 years. Small areas such as the underarms or upper lip can be treated in 10 minutes or less, and even large areas like the back or legs can be treated in under a half hour. Various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis or waxing.
Small areas include: upper lip, chin, underarm, bikini, between eyebrows, hands, toes, and flank.
Commonly asked questions:
How can I prepare my skin for this treatment?
Shave the area that you are getting treated and do not tan for 7 to 10 days before or after treatment.
What should I expect after this treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs. The treated hair will continue to appear 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin.
In some cases you may experience Folliculitis or slight inflammation of the hair follicles, if this should occur please call Neu Look Skin at (858) 538-5665.
Are the treatments painful?
Most patients tolerate the procedure well, but some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. Topical anesthesia is always available for those patients with more sensitive skin.
