IPL with radio frequency work together on the dermis and epidermis. In a split second, the energy is transmitted through each hair down to its root. The sudden rise in temperature causes the hair to separate from its follicle. Thus you can slow down the hair growth and take care of the skin at the same time. - MaterialEstetica
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body. Today's medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers. -energy.gov
No, not at all. You won't feel much of anything. The laser is gentle and glides across the skin.
We can treat all colors of skin and hair (yes, red, white, and gray). The only skin color that is challenging is skin that is so dark it is considered "blue black". In situations that you don't feel that you would be a good candidate, we do offer Electrolysis.
-You will just need to shave IF you have already been shaving. If you plan on starting a new area, i.e. your arms, and you have never shaved....do not start shaving your arms. Let the hair be. If you have been shaving your legs, continue shaving your legs.
DO NOT wax or TWEEZE before the appointment otherwise the laser won't have anything to target. If you take the hair out, the laser won't be able to do its job. It's looking for something under the skin.
Our youngest clients were 3 years old. Age doesn't matter because it is so safe. You will need parental consent if under 18 years old. The treatment works best on hair that has never been removed. If it has never been shaved, plucked, waxed, etc....it will most likely take less treatments to remove. What a great gift to give someone!
Each body part will respond differently, but most will take anywhere between 10-15 treatments. I believe that is the same with any laser place you will go. If they tell you differently, I would read the fine print. If it ends up being more than 15 treatments due to hormones, we will work with pricing with you. We want the best for our clients. Our goal is to see you hair-free.
A few things will start to happen, either the hair will slow down growing back, or it will come in more sparse, or it will start to change texture. ALL of which are signs that it's going in the right direction.
Most-likely not every hair. If not every hair, we can always look at following up with Electrolysis if that is a concern.
If you must cancel your appointment, please keep in mind that a 24-hour cancellation notice is appreciated by phone or in person. This allows us time to replace that appointment for our commission-based service providers. In the event that we don’t hear from you in time, a service charge will be assessed.
