Goodbye razors, au revoir painful waxing! Say hello to laser hair removal!
Laser hair removal has been around for a while, but the technology has advanced quite a ways in the last decade. Laser hair removal is now quicker and safer than ever. Just think: laser hair removal can be a long-term solution. Irresistibly smooth, hair-free skin can be acheived! And when factoring in the average cost of shaving supplies in a lifetime, laser hair removal can be a time-saver and a bargain.
At Luminesce Skin, we use excel HR, a new technology, which uses premium laser sources designed to help achieve safe and effective results for patients of all skin types. It can even work on darker skin tones and on every part of the body. The consistent, sustained energy in each pulse helps to reduce the overall number of treatments, and the continuous cooling, before, during and after each pulse serves to significantly improve comfort.
The number of treatments needed depends on which part of the body we are working on and which growth phase the hair is in. Hair grows in three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Hair can only be effectively removed when it is in the anagen phase, and hair is not all in the same phase at the same time. On some parts of the body (for example, bikini, underarms, face) there are more hairs in the anagen phase at any given time, while on the legs and back, there are fewer in the anagen phases at any given time.
What that means for you is that 4-6 sessions, spaced 6-10 weeks would be typical for bikini, underarms, and face, while more sessions would be needed for legs and back. Consultation is required before booking your laser hair removal session.
