Laser Hair Removal
We offer the most effective method for getting rid of unwanted hair.
Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive and convenient way to permanently reduce and eliminate unwanted body/facial hair. Numerous hair follicles are simultaneously treated allowing rapid coverage of large areas.
We use FDA approved lasers that are safe and effective for ALL skin types. Even tanned skins can be treated!
What do laser treatments feel like?
The laser handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
What type of laser equipment is used?
We use state-of-the-art laser equipment at Phoenix Medspa: Starlux-500 from Palomar – Learn more at www.palomarmedical.com
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 5-8 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors: hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
