Laser Hair Removal FAQs
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Many, many different lasers and light based systems have been introduced since then, but they all work via the same principle. While the term “laser hair removal” is used most often to describe the process, many devices used today are not actual lasers, but intense pulsed light devices. They do the same thing, just with a different type of light.
Medalase Lasers – Hair Removal on the move
At Medalase, providing an effective treatment in a safe manner is our primary concern. Nobody wants to undergo a treatment if they don’t feel safe, and if it can’t deliver results. While the diode laser is the most successful laser in the history of laser hair removal and safely treats all skin colors, the Soprano takes safety one step further by utilizing a unique energy delivery system. Many lower power pulses are fired in rapid succession while the hand piece is “in motion”, allowing the delivered energy to be “summed”, building gradually in a way that allows the hair follicle to be heated high enough for results while giving the skin more time to cool, reducing the potential for side effects. As an added benefit of this delivery system, comfort for the patient is improved because there is no longer a necessity to use very high power, painful pulses of laser energy. While some people may still experience some discomfort, treatments are much easier than they were years ago. This prevents the cost and time associated with using a topical numbing cream, which for some people can translate to a savings of hundreds of dollars, and many hours of time.
How does laser hair removal work?
Understanding the hair growth Cycle
What can I expect during my treatment?
It takes several treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Most people begin to see significant changes after the second or third treatment, as the hair moves through its growth cycles. New hair growth from surviving hair follicles may be finer and lighter in color, making it less noticeable. Hair will also begin to grow back more slowly. There may be “bare” patches as some of the hair is disabled and stops growing back. If you shave daily, you may find that it becomes necessary to do so only every few days or every few weeks. Those that experience irritation from shaving or ingrown hairs may begin to see that problem disappear. As your treatments continue, you will usually continue to see better and better results.
