Laser Hair Removal safely removes unwanted hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. The laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicles where the energy is absorbed. The laser energy is converted into heat, safely destroying the hair follicle and leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The laser beam cannot penetrate past the dermis (second layer of skin).
Hair that has been cut by a razor looks thicker because it has been cut at a sharp angle. For the same reason it feels stubbly as the hair starts to grow back, the stubble is unsightly and can make the hair seem thicker. If a shaved hair has a blunt end and hair is usually darker near the root, there is a common belief that shaving causes hair to grow back thicker, faster, and more noticeable.
Hair re-growth usually occurs within 2 to 3 days following shaving, plucking or waxing. There are other drawbacks to shaving, such as unsightly red shaving bumps. These often occur because there are oil glands attached to nerve endings; these oil glands are easily irritated and react to the irritation of shaving. A further shaving hazard is Razor Burn which can occur if you press too hard with the razor or if you shave with a blunt blade or with a blade that’s been left open allowing bacteria to inlay.
Folliculitis (Ingrown hairs) usually resembles acne and is distinguished by raised, red bumps that can occasionally flare-up, or whiteheads. As the hair grows under the skin, it blocks the pore and allows bacteria to breed, therefore creating a pimple. Laser passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where the follicle absorbs the heat destroying the hair and any bacteria. Lasers are successfully used to target specific structures within the skin, without causing damage to surrounding tissue. This provides gentle, non-invasive, and safe long-lasting results.
Laser Hair Removal actually destroys the hair at the root, and over time will eliminate all hair growth in the area treated, leaving your skin silky smooth, with no ingrown, no scarring, and no marking. The laser also promotes collagen production.
Laser Hair Removal is a technique that makes it possible to safely treat a large area of the body in the one session and achieve great results. Areas of the body such as arms and legs are the quickest to respond to the laser hair removal treatment due to the follicle positioned closer to the surface of the skin, allowing Laser beam to reach the follicle quicker with maximum energy.
Melanin is what gives our skin and hair its color. Pigmented lesions are dark in colour simply because melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin. High concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors. Some types are present at birth, but most occur with age or because of overexposure to the sun. Not all birthmarks and lesions can be treated by laser however; excellent results can be achieved with some forms of laser therapy.
Think of all the time you save not having to shave! Waxing you have to grow your hair to get it done. So basically it only looks good for a few days. Your average Brazilian and underarm Waxing Treatment costs approx $75.00 once a month. This can total to $900.00 a year, every year after every year!
With CANDELA Gentle Lase Laser Hair Removal Treatment, a Brazilian and underarm will require approximately between 6 and 9 treatments each 6 weeks, by the end of 12 month you would have completed your treatment, would have paid approximately $565.00, and will only require 2 to 3 maintenance visits a year at $35.00 for underarm, and $85.00 for the Brazilian. At BARE BODY SPA our clients are pleased to tell us that Laser Hair Removal is a much more cost effective solution.
Women who are experiencing PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) may experience slower results unless they receive medical support along with the Laser Hair Removal treatment. However, after 6 to 8 treatments you will notice a significant benefit and the hair will grow slower and much finer and be less visible. Women can achieve excellent results over the entire body, but to remain hair free on the face, “touch up” treatments are required every 3 to 6 months. Laser Hair Removal can help and control other skin and hair related conditions:
Laser Hair Removal can certainly be beneficial for men. Unwanted back hair, as well as thick or excessive Chest or Back hair can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. More and more men with excessive hair feel self-conscious,and search for more effective and longer lasting hair removal solutions. In addition to eliminating the need to shave every day, it also prevents irritation and the development of folliculitis.
We recommend at least 6 to 8 treatments, 6 weeks apart for a significant reduction in hair visibility, providing you are committed to your treatment every 6 weeks you will achieve good results. However, for men wanting to achieve up to 80% hair loss, they may require as many as 12 to 15 treatments due to the higher levels of testosterone in the body. Please let that important man in your life know about BARE BODY SPA.
To achieve the best results be sure to choose a genuine Laser for hair removal. The Candela Gentle Lase delivers a laser beam at a specific wavelength identified to ensure safety and maximize results. The energy that is used is applied and directed to ensure an effective and safe destruction of the hair follicle. Other light based processes such as IPL/ SPL (Pulse Light Systems) machines deliver a wide range of wavelengths. They are great for photo facials, but not so much for hair removal.
