Seriously, anywhere. Our machine can cover large places fast. Legs, back, underarms, bikini line, stomach, face…There is no limit to the places you can get laser hair removal.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Lasers will permanently reduce the amount of hair growth. Some areas of the body will experience permanent removal of hair while other areas may need some maintenance from time to time. After each visit, hair growth will be further reduced and you will require fewer sessions.
How many treatments will I require?
The number of treatments you will require depends on area to be treated. Legs, bikini, under-arms could take 6 treatments. Other more hormonal areas could require 8 treatments. They are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart to effectively reduce hair growth.
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
The most important thing to do before your first treatment is to stop waxing or plucking 3 weeks prior to your appointment. Also, for best results, you will want to make sure you are applying sunscreen throughout the course of the treatments to avoid any hypersensitivity to your skin.
What do I do after my treatment, will I need a lot of downtimes?
Our non-invasive Laser Hair Removal treatment is safe and quick making the need for recovery time unnecessary. You can return to work and daily life as usual with no effect on your normal day-to-day activities. After the procedure, you may experience a little redness in the treatment area, that is completely normal and should dissipate in a few hours, or a day or two.
Does Laser hair removal cause infertility?
There is no evidence that laser hair removal causes infertility. The lasers only penetrate the skin level to where the hair root lies and do not reach or affect any other organs. Laser hair removal is safe, even in sensitive areas such as the groin.
Microneedling with PRP
What Can I Expect from Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and how is this different form regular Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure, that primarily used to minimize the signs of aging. During a standard session, your Nurse Practitioner or Medical Aesthetician uses a special device with needles to prick the skin and stimulate new collagen production. Because of this, Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections can be added to the session for an additional cost. Microneedling with PRP is said to create more tightness in the skin and speed the healing process alone.
What is this procedure used for?
Traditional Microneedling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles and other forms of hyperpigmentation. PRP injections may boost these effects and achieve your desired results faster. Although Microneedling can be used to treat scars and stretch marks on other areas of the body.
What can I expect during my appointment?
Before – Arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment time, to fill out any paper work and for numbing cream to be applied to area that is being treated.
During – Your Nurse Practitioner or Medical Aesthetician will apply a professional-grade device to your face and move it in sweeping or circular motions. A syringe of blood will be drawn, usually from your arm while your face is numbing. The blood is then put into a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from the blood. The PRP solution is then massaged into the treatment area either during or after microneedling. The microneedling treatment opens channels into the skin, allowing for good penetration of the PRP. In the past, PRP has been injected into the skin, but it’s becoming more of a common practice to use it along with microneedling.
After – Once the Procedure is finished, your Nurse or Medical Aesthetician will apply a Hyaluronic Acid Serum to soothe any redness, dryness and irritation. They may also use a portion of the blood drawn known as platelet-poor plasma.
What are the portential side effects and complications?
Bruises and inflammation are the most common side effects. They typically appear immediately after the procedure, and clear within four to five days. You will want to avoid sun exposure and harsh skin treatments during this time.
When will you see results?
Using PRP alongside-traditional microneeding treatments results in smoother, firmer skin. But as with other microneedling procedures, these results won’t last forever. After you finish your course of treatment, you will need to follow up once a year for potential maintenance. You may able to extend your results of treatments by:
- avoiding direct sun exposure
- wearing sunscreen every day
- cleansing skin with a gentle cream (exfoliants may irritate your skin after receiving this procedure)
- moisturizing your skin properly
- avoiding picking or scratching your face
