Laser Hair Reduction

Hair reduction and removal are some of the most popular applications of laser technology today. Traditional laser hair removal uses concentrated beams of optical light to damage hair follicles without harming the surrounding tissues. But because most standard laser technology only targets the pigment, or melanin, in the hair follicles, traditional laser hair removal treatments only yielded results for those with dark, coarse hair and a fair complexion.

The elōs Plus laser, however, allows for successful and safe laser hair removal treatments on all patients regardless of their hair color, type of hair or skin color. Due to the combined RF and optical energy, the hair follicles are treated both above and below the skin’s surface, resulting in an immediate reduction of hair growth with the most optimal results observed after several treatment sessions. During your initial consultation, one of our laser specialists will help you determine how many treatments will be necessary to achieve the results you desire.

Laser hair removal treatments can last anywhere from several seconds for smaller areas like the chin and lips to 30 minutes for larger areas like the legs and back. While most patients experience little to no discomfort during their treatment, you will be given the option to add a topical numbing cream to your skin before your procedure for an additional cost. You may experience mild redness or swelling after your appointment; however, these symptoms will generally subside within 1 to 2 days after your treatment.

Properly Prepare Before Your Treatments and Follow Your Post Care Instructions

Firstly, before you receive ELOS laser treatment, you’ll need to:

  • Shave the area a day before
  • Avoid direct sunlight exposure on your skin
  • Avoid skin medication a few days before
  • Keep skin clean before treatment – this means no make-up or deodorant
  • Avoid spray tans or bronzing lotions one week before treatment
  • Avoid NSAIDS like Tylenol 24 hours prior to treatment

After your treatment, you’ll need to:

  • Continue to avoid the sun
  • Avoid any irritants on your skin
  • Avoid tweezing or plucking any excess hair – it will be removed
  • Avoid alcohol or sweating for 24 hours following treatment
  • Do not soak in baths or hot tubs for 24-48 hours post Laser

A LIST OF PRE-POST CARE INSTRUCTION WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU AT YOUR CONSULTATION

If you get this right, the risk of side effects will be lessened and you’ll have beautiful, hairless skin as a result.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO CONSIDER?

During your procedure, you can expect some discomfort. (If you’re used to waxing, this will not be anywhere near as painful!)

After treatment, there may be continued discomfort and swelling and perhaps include minor blistering. A list of possible side effects will be discussed at your consultation.
