Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a safe alternative to remove unwanted facial or body hair while eliminating razor burn and the “shadow” effect caused by shaving. Why choose laser hair removal over other hair removal techniques like waxing or plucking? There are many benefits to laser hair removal including:
- Unlike shaving and waxing, laser technology can be used to selectively target dark, coarse hairs, and leave surrounding skin undamaged.
- Very fast! Skin Savvy is proud to offer the state-of-the-art, high power diode technology laser : LightSheer® High Speed Laser. Laser light is emitted in super-fast pulses which take a fraction of a second each. The upper lip can be treated in under a minute, and large areas like the back or legs take up to 45 minutes.
- Super effective: Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution. You can expect permanent hair loss after an average of 6-8 sessions.
What happens during a laser hair removal session?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways to seriously reduce hair growth from just about anywhere on your body. During your session, Skin Savvy aesthetic specialist moves the LightSheer™ Diode device over your targeted area.
With each pulse of laser energy, hair follicles heat up, without damaging your skin (the laser is attracted only to hair pigments). This sudden increase in heat isn’t normal for the hair, and it stops the growth cycle. Since treated hair becomes damaged, it sheds away naturally within a few weeks.
Because the laser energy is absorbed by hair pigments in the roots, you can continue shaving as normal between sessions. You don’t have to worry about growing out your hair to a specific length. Hair continues growing back little by little — it’s finer and lighter with each new growth cycle — until eventually, most of it stops growing back entirely.
Which laser technology does Skin Savvy offer?
NEW! Skin Savvy is excited to offer the best laser hair laser on the market today – LightSheer™ Diode High Speed Lasers. The LightSheer laser is specifically designed and has the sole purpose of removing unwanted hair and has become the “Gold Standard” for hair removal from its unsurpassed clinically documented success. The patented Sapphire ChillTip™ hand-piece provides continuous cooling of the top layer of the skin for client safety and comfort while increasing penetration of laser energy to the base of the hair follicle. The LightSheer™ Diode has been rated as one of the top lasers on the market by leading professionals in the dermatology & skin care industry and it continues to be unmatched in its clinical research and efficacy.
How permanent is laser hair removal?
Laser removal technology is most effective on hairs that are actively growing (anagen phase). Because each hair on your body is in a different stage of growth, you need multiple laser hair removal sessions to effectively target all unwanted body hair.
Once you complete your laser hair removal package at Skin Savvy — most clients need at least four to eight monthly sessions — you experience a dramatic reduction in hair growth. You may rarely, if ever, need to shave. Targeted hair is gone for good.
Sometimes, special circumstances cause new hair growth to develop. This is most common for women who go through hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause. If you find new hairs are surfacing again, you can always schedule a touch-up treatment at Skin Savvy.
Is the treatment painful?
Pain tolerance is something that’s unique to every individual, but most people tolerate the procedure well and report little discomfort. Many factors such as the coarseness and density of the hair, the color and the area being treated affect the sensation. However, the LightSheer Diode does help alleviate some discomfort by providing a chilling system before, during and after each pulse.
Chrissy and the caring team at Skin Savvy want to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during your treatemnt. If needed, you’re welcome to come in about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled treatment to apply a topical numbing cream.
