Do you love the smooth, silky feeling of hair-free skin? Laser hair removal is the solution for you!
Laser hair removal is a process in which hair follicles are treated with laser light, resulting in permanent hair reduction or removal.This procedure can be performed on almost any area of the body with unwanted hair. The most commonly treated areas for women include legs, bikini line, underarms, back, face and upper lip. Laser hair removal is safe (FDA-cleared), effective and provides long-lasting results. With the introduction of advanced laser technology, waxing, razor bumps and painful electrolysis are finally becoming a thing of the past.
Amerejuve uses several different, state of the art, FDA-cleared laser technologies. This allows us to safely treat all skin types while delivering high quality laser hair removal results.
Results of laser hair removal treatments can vary depending on an individual’s genetics, hormone levels, and other metabolic and skin related factors. A series of 4 – 6 sessions typically results in permanent hair reduction in most people. In studies, hair regrowth has been reduced by up to 90% after 6 treatments.
Amerejuve also offers a lifetime guarantee to protect your laser hair removal investment. Visit our Laser Hair Removal Advisor or schedule a complimentary consultation today to learn more.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser emits a beam of light that is attracted to the pigment or melanin in the hair follicle that is in an active growing cycle. A pre-determined pulse duration and energy setting are directed at and absorbed by the hair follicles, disabling the growth of the follicles, resulting in quick, safe and effective hair removal. Laser hair removal is offered in a package of 4 – 6 treatments to effectively treat all hair follicles in the growth cycle.
How many Laser Hair Removal treatments are required?
During the procedure, the technician will guide the laser over the treatment area. As the laser pulses intermittently, it delivers light energy, which travels through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicles. Hair follicles in the anlagen growth phase have more pigment than follicles in the other inactive phases of the growth cycle. Therefore, they are able to absorb the light energy delivered by the laser. Those hair follicles that absorb energy, or heat, from the laser will be damaged. Hairs that were present in the follicles at the time of treatment will fall out, and future hair growth will be impaired. As not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, a single procedure will not treat all of the hair follicles in the area. As the follicles in the transitional and resting periods return to the active growth phase, you may notice some hair growth in the region. This is why multiple treatments are usually required to treat a single area completely.
We recommend 4 – 6 laser hair treatments to effectively treat all hair follicles. At Amerejuve, we offer an extended lifetime guarantee for additional sessions if needed. It is our belief that the majority of our clients will not need any additional treatments, however we want to assure your full satisfaction.
What should I expect after my laser hair removal treatment?
After a laser treatment, the area may feel and look much like a sunburn for 1 – 2 days. We recommend cool compresses and moisturizers. You should also limit sun exposure on the areas treated by the laser before and after your treatments. It is also important to use sunscreen for a few weeks following the procedure. You should not use any products that may irritate your skin such as alpha hydroxy acids or harsh astringents. In addition, you should avoid plucking or waxing of the treatment area.
When will I see results?
You may notice some hair that appears on the surface of your skin within 7 – 10 days following treatment. These hairs are usually those that have fallen out of hair follicles impaired during treatment. However you will notice some new hair growth within a few weeks, as hair follicles that were inactive during treatment reenter the active growth phase. Only follicles currently in the active growth phase are affected by laser hair removal treatments, and different follicles enter this phase at different times. Therefore, you will most likely undergo multiple treatments spaced approximately 4 – 8 weeks apart. Although the number of treatments varies by individual, most individuals receive approximately 6 treatments.
The results from a laser hair removal procedure depend on your skin tone, your hair type, and the growth phase of the hair being treated. It is important to realize that laser hair removal will likely not prevent hair from growing completely. However, laser hair removal can reduce hair growth significantly over time giving your skin the smooth appearance that you desire.
