LASER HAIR REMOVAL IN AURORA, MERIDIAN, PARKER, & CASTLE ROCK, CO
What is LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Hair removal lasers pass a beam of light through the skin to the hair follicle. Without damaging the skin, the laser transforms heat to disable the follicle. Enjoy the quick and easy removal of unwanted hair without shaving, tweezing or waxing. Results are optimal for light-skinned individuals with dark hair. Prices vary depending on areas treated and the number of treatment sessions needed. Consult with our skin care professionals to determine whether this treatment is right for you.
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
All laser hair removal systems target the pigment in the root of the hair follicle. If your hair is white, blonde, grey or light red the laser will not recognize the hair. To be effective the laser requires multiple treatments as it is only targeting hair in the anagen phase or growing phase. If the hair follicle is breaking down or in the catagen phase, or resting in telogen phase, the laser won’t be effective in eliminating the hair. Depending on the area of hair being treated it could require five to fifteen treatments to effectively reduce hair growth.
IS Laser Hair Removal PAINFUL?
The laser does sting, so we apply a topical numbing prior to the treatment. Our laser also shoots out a cryogen spray prior to the laser beam to help cool and protect the area from burning. On laser impact, many of the hair follicles are burnt and break off, but some may remain behind. The area may be red for several hours or up to a day or so. We will apply a topical steroid and ice after the treatment to assist with the redness and discomfort.
HOw Often will I need Laser Hair Removal?
Most treatments are scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks. Over time, most people will see an 80 to 90% reduction in hair growth. A yearly touch up is common.
