You have most likely researched home hair removal devices like No No and TRIA. Please note that such devices tend to be underpowered, and they might not remove hair permanently. Electrolysis is a good option for permanent hair removal, especially for small areas like the eyebrows, but it should be done by trained professionals, and it take a long time.
Over the past several years, Laser Hair Removal has gained increased popularity and credibility in the medical field, as a potentially permanent hair removal method. Results for hair removal by laser are:
1. Consistent. 2. Reproducible. 3. Up to 60-100% hair reduction depending on the skin type, hair color, thickness, location, and other parameters.* Your individual results may vary. 4. …after all, Beauty is Power®, so let us help you improve your outer beauty and have smooth, silky skin with laser hair removal.
Best areas for Laser Hair Removal treatments
Bikini hair removal, for instance, is a popular area for laser hair removal. This hair is usually frequently shaved, it is coarser than hair in other areas, and it responds well to the treatments. Underarms also respond well. Unlike coarse hair, fine facial hair, such as the hair on the cheeks and facial sides, responds poorly. As well, darker hair responds better then blond or ginger hair. These are just some examples to help explain what to expect from your laser hair removal or reduction. You might have heard or read elsewhere that hair removal or reduction is permanent or guaranteed for a certain time period. In reality, it is not. But, with proper technique and other factors, you may be able to achieve 60-100% of hair reduction. According to the FDA, permanent hair reduction is defined as a long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regimen.
What you can expect from the Boston-Providence Skinsational Laser Hair Removal Center
Recent expert opinion and observational evidence suggests that seven (7) treatments are required for better results in laser hair removal. At Skinsational Laser Center, we offer eight (8) treatments in our regimens plus four (4) additional maintenance treatments, or one treatment every three months, in order to help you achieve maximum laser hair removal results. As we are a medical aesthetic clinic, at Skinsational Laser Center a medical doctor will be directly involved in your treatment, as opposed to having an off-site “supervising” role. During your initial consultation, you will meet our staff and express your needs to us. We will, in turn, discuss it in detail with you and offer you realistic answers and expectations. You should note that results may vary from person to person. In case we find you unsuitable for a successful treatment, we will advise you. We value both your time, your investment, and our credibility. We will give you realistic expectations about your potential hair reduction results. We will not offer you any empty promises regarding potential outcomes or prices – our laser hair removal prices are published here on our website, and we guarantee the best prices in Rhode Island. After we have agreed that you are a good candidate for laser hair removal treatment, you will be given a health questionnaire to complete. We will go over pre- and post-treatment instructions, what to do and what to avoid, in order to obtain the best results.
How Laser Hair Removal Works?
The Skinsational Laser Center’s Lasers work by destroying the blood supply to your hair follicles and/or the melanin in the hair follicle. The blood supply will be destroyed, and when this blood flow is gone, the hair follicle and its active parts will shrivel and die. There are several phases in the follicle growth cycle: early growth, active growth, regression and resting. A hair follicle in the active growth phase contains engorged blood flow and will be affected on your treatment day. A resting follicle has less blood supply and will not be as affected by treatment. The energy delivered by the laser will generate enough heat to destroy your affected hair follicles. Because your hair follicles are constantly in various stages of their life cycles, you need several treatments, every 5-7 weeks apart, in order to treat all of the hair growth cycles of the hair follicles, for a total of eight (8) sessions. At the 2007 Society for Lasers In Medicine and Surgery meeting, data presented suggested that on average at least 7 sessions are typically needed. Our laser technology has many safety features. Its depth of penetration goes to the very deepest follicle and people of all skin colors can be safely treated. Most lasers in the market, with a shorter wave length, target only melanin – a pigment that we have in our hair follicle. That results in heat absorbed into the skin, often not deep enough to effectively destroy a hair follicle, and such lasers have a higher incidence of skin reactions and damage. With the laser technology we use at the Skinsational Laser Center of Rhode Island and Southern New England, we can select the appropriate Laser for your skin type. That means that regardless of tanning status, you are assured additional safety and minimal likelihood of side-effects. Your comfort, safety and happiness are our primary goals, and your results may vary.
