Laser hair reduction is a quick, safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair for good. The neodymium-YAG-laser wavelength is absorbed by the pigment melanin in the hair and converted into thermic energy, destroying the follicle without damaging the surrounding skin.
Laser treatment reduces the need for shaving, waxing, and plucking, saving you money over time. It also helps to slow down hair growth, reducing maintenance needs in the future.
Using the latest technology, we offer an effective alternative to traditional hair removal techniques that provide only temporary relief from unwanted hair. Unlike shaving, waxing or tweezing, laser hair reduction removes the root of the hair, leaving your skin silky and smooth.
Laser and light-based treatments work by emitting thermal energy through concentrated pulses of light. These heat up the water within the hair follicle, which disables it from growing additional hair.
Our Licensed Professionals use Cynosure Icon laser system to remove unwanted hair from the underarms, bikini line, legs and back. This is a safe and effective method of permanent hair reduction for all skin types and hair colors.
Many people choose to have laser treatment to avoid the inconvenience and discomfort of shaving, tweezing or waxing. These methods can be painful, time-consuming and ineffective. In addition, they can cause irritated and ingrown hairs. Laser treatment can be used on any area of the body where you have excess hair, such as the underarms, legs, chest and arms.
It’s not a good idea to get laser hair removal done at just any salon. Make sure that you consult with a variety of experts before you book a session so that they can ensure that the device being used will be safe for your skin tone and hair color.
The beam of light from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in your hair. This will cause the follicle to be damaged, which will then inhibit the growth of new hair in that area. This is why you need a series of sessions.
After a laser hair removal session, you may experience some redness and itching on the treated area. This is a natural response to the damage that was done to the hair follicle and should resolve within hours. You can help reduce itching by using a soothing ointment. You should also avoid any irritants like scented body lotions for a few days after your treatment.
The reason it’s so much faster than waxing or electrolysis is that the laser emits multiple light pulses at once which disable a large number of hair follicles in the targeted area. The skin remains relatively unharmed during the process compared to electrolysis which requires a needle being inserted into each individual hair follicle one at a time and is done by hand.
Shaving is the best temporary method to remove unwanted hair before a laser treatment, and also between treatments. Plucking or waxing causes irritation and the body’s defense mechanism is to produce thicker, darker hairs that grow back.
The CynoSure Elite iQ system emits the following types of laser light pulses:
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective treatment options for unwanted hair growth. It removes or significantly reduces the number of hair follicles that can be expected to grow hair in the future, thus eliminating the need for shaving, plucking or waxing.
The light energy emitted from the laser device targets the pigment within your hair follicles, and disables it, thus preventing new hair growth. During your treatment you may experience a slight stinging sensation, which can be relieved with topical anesthetic creams or anti-inflammatory medications.
Triton offers an advanced patented multi-wavelength workstation with Fusion Technology, that enables the use of higher peak power with a combination of three different wavelengths to effectively treat dark phototypes (VI). Compared to previous technology, this reduces the risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation and allows for increased treatment speed.
