Traditional techniques for getting rid of unwanted hair can be painful, time-consuming and inconvenient. Laser hair removal offers a safe and comfortable way to permanently reduce hair from virtually anywhere on the face or body.
Bare skin that’s silky smooth.
Laser hair removal ensures silky smooth skin that lasts. During your treatment, a beam of light will be passed over your skin by a member of our team. This laser will target and deactivate your hair follicles at the root, which should prevent them from growing again. It’s a very popular hair removal approach because it:
- Is associated with less irritation when compared to other hair removal methods
- Is rapid, which ensures that large areas can be addressed very quickly
- Can be applied to virtually any area of the face and body
- Effectively targets your hair follicles while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in your hair follicles, which is what supplies their natural pigment. The laser deactivates the melanin, which prevents the follicle from growing further. With each treatment, you will experience some (but not complete) permanent hair reduction. In general, approximately five treatments are required for optimal results.
What to expect during laser hair removal
If you decide to have laser hair removal at Jon’Ric, you will need to take some steps to prepare in advance. For at least six weeks, you should limit or eliminate plucking, waxing and electrolysis to ensure that the roots of your hair are available for the laser to target. It’s also important to stay out of the sun, as exposure can make your procedure less effective and increase your risk of certain complications.
When you arrive at our office for your appointment, we will begin by trimming your unwanted hair until it’s just a few millimeters long. We will then adjust the laser to your skin color and the color, thickness and location of your hair. From there, we will smooth a cold gel over your skin to protect its surface and help the laser penetrate effectively. Once we have prepped and protected your skin, we will administer a powerful pulse of light to the treatment area to deactivate the follicles.
After your procedure, we will apply ice packs and anti-inflammatory lotion to ease any pain and discomfort. Your next treatment will be scheduled four to six weeks later, and you will need to continue touching-up your results until the hair stops growing.
