Laser Hair Removal

 

If you're sick of shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hairs, Laser Hair Removal is the answer.  At All In One Laser we use the GentleMax™ laser to safely, quickly and effectively remove unwanted hairs on all skin types. The GentleMax™ carries 2 different wavelengths; The Alexandrite wavelength which is designed to treat lighter skin tones and the NGYag wavelength which is designed to treat darker skin tones. Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive procedure which safely and permanently removes unwanted facial and body hairs. During treatment, the laser emits a concentrated pulse of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The laser light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicle that produces hair. Laser hair removal works best on brown and black hairs and does not work on gray or blonde hairs since there is no pigment.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Most people need between 6-12 treatments spaced 4-7 weeks apart. Depending on hair type and genetic factors, some individuals may require additional treatments beyond these initial treatments. Some causes of excessive hair growth can be caused by hormonal imbalances, reactions to certain medications, normal aging processes, heredity, and excessive temporary removal methods like waxing, tweezing, creams and depilatories. Everyone is unique and will react differently to the laser. 

Pre-Treatment Instructions

Five weeks before treatment and throughout the course of treatment patients are advised to:

  • No tanning and sunless tanners

  • No waxing, Plucking, Tweezing or Electrolysis

  • The area to be treated should be shaved one day prior to treatment as closely as possible so the laser can target the energy towards the hair follicle. If you fail to shave beforehand we will likely shave the areas at the time of the appointment

  • On the day of treatment no lotion, makeup, perfume and deodorant should be used on the areas to be treated

  • If you are taking Accutane, or have taken it in the last 6 months please notify office ahead of time

  • If you are taking any antibiotics, please notify office ahead of time as some make your skin very sensitive to treatment

  • Avoid laser hair removal while pregnant

Post Treatment Instructions

  • No tanning for 2 weeks after treatment

  • No waxing, Plucking, Tweezing or Electrolysis throughout the treatment

  • No exercising for the rest of the day after treatment

  • No lotion, makeup, perfume and deodorant should be used on the areas treated for 24 hours.

  • No steam room or very hot shower the rest of the day

  • No swimming in chlorine water for 24 hours

  • After treatment, you may experience brief swelling and redness which subsides within a few hours. Avoid scratching the treated area. Within 1-3 weeks of treatment, you should experience shedding of hair in the treated areas. At first, it will feel like the hairs are growing back in or little black hair dots stuck under the skin, but these are the hairs coming through the skin and will shed. Exfoliating and/or scrubbing gently in the shower with a cleanser or a loofah is recommend during the shedding process.
