How is it done?
Step 1: Unwanted hair is shaved and the skin is wiped clean.
Step 2: The handpiece is applied to the skin in a “stamping” motion, emitting quick laser and coolant spray pulses to the desired treatment area.
Step 3: Coolant spray is wiped off, and soothing cream is applied. You're all done!
What does it feel like?
It is often described to be similar to the snap of a rubber band. This discomfort subsides quickly and is minimized by quick bursts of coolant spray (cryogen).
What can I expect after?
Mild redness and swelling are common and normal temporary reactions.
You may feel some 'regrowth' after, which is actually the lasered hair being pushed out of the hair shaft.
Lasered hair should fall out within 2-4 weeks.
How often should it be done?
For Facial Hair
Every 2-4 weeks is recommended
For Body Hair
Every 4-6 weeks is recommended
As your hair gets thinner and finer after a number of sessions, the interval may increase to 6-8 weeks and 8-10 weeks respectively. Once you have finished your initial set of sessions, it is recommended to have “maintenance” sessions 1-2 times a year.
How many sessions will I need?On average, it takes 6-12 sessions to achieve at least 80% reduction.
The number of sessions may vary, depending on hair characteristics, consistency of treatment, age, gender, medications taken, and/or pre-existing hormonal conditions.
You may not proceed with treatment if you:
Are pregnant and/or lactating (a doctor's note is required)
Are taking or have taken Isotretinoin (Accutane/Acnotin) within the last 6 months
Take medications that increase sensitivity to sunlight, or are prone to seizures from light
Have psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, history of keloids, or bleeding disorders
Have a pacemaker, internal defibrillator, and/or other implanted devices
Make sure that you have not waxed or tweezed in the last 4 weeks since hair roots must be present
Apply sunscreen with minimum SPF30 on exposued treated areas during the entire treatment course
Use anti-inflammatory cream to treat redness, itchiness, and swelling as needed
Do not apply any deodorant, soap, or lotion in the area for 24 hours
Avoid whitening creams, sun exposure, tanning, and tanning lamps
Shaving is allowed, but is not recommended and should be avoided
