Laser Hair & Tattoo Removal
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a convenient, noninvasive method for permanently reducing or removing unwanted facial or body hair. It leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas effectively with minimal discomfort and with no downtime.
Why Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair, be it from a condition that causes excess hair growth or just the desire for a new look. Most individuals will require a series of procedures over time which will result in the removal of the unwanted hair. Some individuals will see long term hair removal which may last for many years. Others may require maintenance procedures over time to maintain their degree of hair loss. It is truly impossible to determine in advance who will require how many procedures and how long the hair will remain gone. As stated above, laser hair removal works best in those with dark hairs on lighter skin, however newer technologies and newer lasers and light sources have made the procedure effective on those with other hair color.
The laser uses gentle beams of light to get rid of hair. The hair’s melanin (the part that gives hair its color) absorbs the light, which turns into heat. The heat damages the follicle (but not the surrounding skin or tissue) and prevents it from producing more hair. And since you don’t have to take time off to recover, you can get back to your normal activities immediately. Laser hair removal usually requires three to seven procedures and works best for people with light skin and dark hair..
Laser hair removal can treat hair anywhere on the face or body. Women often treat the bikini area, chin, upper lip, underarms and legs. Men can safely eliminate unwanted hair from their beard area, back, chest, abdomen and shoulders.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Our goal is to treat your tattoo without harmful side effects to your skin and to give you the most complete removal. We aim to have your skin’s surface look as it did before tattooing; we can also work with your tattoo artist to prepare your skin for a new design, so you do not have to settle for an unsightly cover up.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works?
The beam seeks out the pigment in your tattoo with its light energy and shatters it into millions of pieces. Your body then absorbs these pieces over a period of the next 6 weeks. The process is repeated until your tattoo is gone.
Our goal is to remove your tattoo quickly. The number of proceduress will depend on several factors including your own immune system, your skin tone, the tattoo colors, the types of dye, the depth of the tattoo and the length of time you have had it. Knowing these things, we will craft your unique procedures.What areas can I get Laser Hair Removal?
Procedures are spaced about 5 weeks apart to give your body sufficient time to absorb and remove the broken down dye fragments
Most people describe the laser as an elastic band snap on your skin which lasts only a very short fraction of a second. We will cool your skin to make you comfortable and only in rare instances is anesthesia necessary.
