Laser Hair Removal
Remove Unwanted Hair and Improve Skin Tone & Texture
An effective and popular procedure among men and women, laser hair removal replaces traditional methods for removing unwanted facial and body with longer-lasting results. All consultations are complimentary.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an efficient treatment for destroying hair follicles and preventing new hair growth – one hair at a time. The laser targets follicles of active hair – a process known as photothermolysis that prevents growth of active hair.
Multiple treatments are required to remove any inactive hair follicles left behind. No laser is capable of removing them all in one session because not all hair follicles grow at the same rate.
AQUA’s newer technology is designed for all ethnic groups, and covers the entire range of skin colours and hair types.
It is a relatively pain free procedure since the pulse of the laser is just a fraction of a second. To lessen the chance of discomfort, topical anesthetics can be applied pre-treatment. The laser’s cooling system helps to minimize redness and swelling that may occur post-treatment.
Ideal Treatment Area(s)
Laser hair removal is suitable for all body sites including arms, legs, face, bikini, back and neck.
A consult with Dr. Armogan precedes treatment to confirm your candidacy.
The length of treatment depends on site and volume of hair – some sites require a few minutes of treatment while larger sites may require multiple sessions.
For best results a series of 10-12 sessions is recommended 6 weeks apart (determined by hair growth cycles). When complete, expect a 60-90% reduction in unwanted hair.
Shaving the target area should be avoided 24 hours prior to treatment.
Post treatment skin may appear red with slight swelling for a few hours – this can be lessened with ice packs.
During the healing process other forms of hair removal and tanning should be avoided.
