Let’s show you why we’re the best provider of laser hair removal near you in Atherton!
The laser hair removal process
As experts in laser hair removal, we have fine-tuned our process for ultimate client satisfaction.
Our special laser, the LightSheer by Lumenis®, targets hair follicles in the active growth phase and works to destroy them, prompting the surrounding skin to remove it.
You’ll meet with Tracey, our incredible laser hair removal specialist, to discuss your desired treatment area and the factors that contribute to whether or not you’ll be an ideal candidate for laser hair removal.
The most ideal clients to treat with laser hair removal are those with light skin and dark, coarse hair. This is because the laser technology specifically targets melanin in the hair follicles; the more melanin that exists in the hair and the less in the skin, the easier it will be for the laser to find and treat the hair. Those with white, gray, or blonde hair may not have enough pigment in their hair for the lasers to be effective.
Your provider will answer your questions prior to coming in for your treatment, as well as discuss any risks or benefits to your particular skin type. Anyone who has tanned, gotten a spray tan, or visited a tanning booth should wait until the tan has faded, as the pigment in the skin absorbs the laser light and reduces the effectiveness of the treatment.
We will not treat tanned skin as it increases your risk of burns from the laser.
Once you are comfortable with how the process works, you will schedule an appointment with Tracey, as well as go over the dos and don’ts prior to your treatment.
We ask that you do not shave, pluck, wax, or otherwise remove the hair in your treatment area(s) for 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Refrain from self-tanning, using tanning beds, or going out in the sun without SPF protection as well!
Once your appointment begins, we’ll cleanse the treatment area(s) and apply topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. We focus the LightSheer handpiece on your areas with unwanted hair. Many clients describe feeling as though they’re getting lightly snapped by a rubber band.
The heat from the laser light destroys the hair follicle, and hair can no longer grow from it.
We typically space your series of treatments 4 to 8 weeks apart. We must do this to adequately treat all hair follicles in the area, as they go through different phases in the growth cycle. Most clients require 4 to 8 sessions for optimal results.
Your provider will determine the exact number of sessions needed to reach your desired results. Discomfort and recovery time are typically minimal, so you can get back to your daily routine with little hassle!
