Don’t feel trapped by problem hair. Freedom from endless, expensive waxing, shaving, and plucking is ahead. With laser hair removal, you escape from frustrating body hair and find freedom and confidence in your daily life. LSS Jacksonville offers treatment with two lasers that offer superior results and the height of patient comfort.
Excel HR is the most advanced laser hair removal option available today. This laser is appropriate for all skin types, and offers ideal results to a broad spectrum of patients.
This hair removal laser combines two laser pulse speeds with a comprehensive sapphire contact cooling system, to enhance patient comfort. The cooling occurs before, during, and after each pulse to transform the sensations patients are accustomed to feeling during laser hair removal.
Been worried that laser hair removal would be too painful for your skin? You’ll be thrilled to hear that in a study measuring patient satisfaction with treatment, 100% of the patients actually chose excel HR over other laser hair removal devices with similar energy settings. Check out the chart below to see how sensitivity of different areas measured up.
excel HR also offers easy spot size adjustment, so that whether your target area is small or broad, treatment will be fast and effective.
CoolGlide® Laser Hair Removal
Our Jacksonville laser hair removal systems deliver the best possible patient experience. The CoolGlide Laser feels like a moderate sting for a fraction of a second. It has a built-in cooling tip that not only protects the skin but also minimizes discomfort. Most patients have no irritation after treatment and may resume their normal activities within a reasonable period of time.
Since sensitivity to pain varies greatly, some areas may be uncomfortable and some areas may not feel treatment at all. Numbing cream is available for purchase if you would like topical anesthetic; simply let us know what your preference is prior to your treatment.
How long do the treatments take?
We schedule anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes for appointments. However, the actual amount of time the laser is being used can vary from as little as three minutes for an upper lip, to 45-60 minutes for full legs or a man’s back. Very often, follow up treatments are shorter (and less expensive) because there is much less hair to treat.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments required for optimal results varies depending on the area treated, hair density, growth cycle, treatment parameters used, and a number of other factors. Typically 6 to 9 treatments, 6 to 10 weeks apart, are required to achieve the desired results.
What results can I expect?
Treatment results may vary among patients. For some, treatment may result in a significant decrease in the frequency with which you must shave. For others, laser hair removal can produce permanent cosmetic improvements, with hair re-growth being minimal, very fine or completely absent. Most patients will lose, on average, 20% to 30% of actively growing hair permanently with each treatment. Everyone will have some re-growth with time regardless of the technology used. Hair that grows back will tend to be much finer and less concentrated.
Will my skin scar or blister?
With any laser, this is a possibility. However, with hair removal lasers, this becomes much less likely. They are incredibly gentle on the skin, and have fewer side effects than most lasers that remove hair.
If I have light hair (e.g.blonde, grey, red) will I see reduction?
Unfortunately, patients with light colored hair see minimal to no results. The laser targets the melanin and these light hairs do not have enough melanin for the laser to see and destroy the follicle. However, our hair removal lasers are appropriate for all skin types, so don’t hold back if you have darker skin – if you have dark hair, treatment will be effective.
