Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal makes razor burn and ingrown hair a thing of the past. No more waxing, shaving or painful procedures like electrolysis to get rid of the hair. One of the main benefits of using a laser to remove your unwanted hair is its permanence. Once you have completed your treatment plan, the hair is gone. Other benefits of laser hair removal include:
  • Precision – the laser can target specific areas and hair types. For example, the laser can target coarse, dark hairs and leave the surrounding area untouched.
  • Speed – laser hair removal is efficient because it can target several hair follicles at once. Small areas of hair, like above the lip, can be done in less than a minute while larger areas can take just a few minutes to complete.
  • Minimal Side Effects – unlike shaving or waxing, there are no ingrown hairs or razor burn.
  • Cost Effective – while the upfront costs can be expensive, you will save money in the long-term on replacement razor blades and waxing supplies.
  • Location – laser hair removal can be done just about anywhere on the body including the armpit, legs, bikini area, back, face, stomach etc.

HAIR REMOVAL

Laser hair removal is a process in which hair follicles are treated with laser light, resulting in permanent hair reduction or removal. Laser hair removal is safe (FDA cleared-remove this), effective, and provides long-lasting results. With the introduction of advanced laser technology, waxing, razor bumps and painful electrolysis are finally becoming a thing of the past.

 

TECHNOLOGY

Arviv Medical uses Laser Hair Removal technology from Syneron-Candela. The laser penetrates the hair follicle with light energy, destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin. It is state-of-the-art, FDA cleared laser technology. This allows us to safely treat all skin types while delivering high-quality laser hair removal results. This laser machine is 2 lasers in 1, the alexandrite and the Nd-yag. Whether you have light skin or dark skin, the technician can adjust the settings to can treat your hair safely.The most common treated areas for women include legs, bikini, underarms, upper lip and stomach and the most common treated areas for men are facial hair, ears, shoulders, back and chest.

How Laser Hair Removal Works at Arviv Medical Aesthetics

At Arviv Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Arviv uses Syneron-Candela laser hair removal technology, the industry standard. The laser is a solid-state neodymium-YAG (yttrium/aluminum/garnet) and alexandrite two-in-one laser and is FDA approved for use in laser hair removal. The YAG laser, which is used in darker skin patients, targets water molecules heating up the tissue around the hair follicle and destroying it. The Alexandrite used on lighter skin types penetrates the hair follicle, targeting the melanin pigment it contains and destroys it, but leaves the surrounding skin intact.

Since your hair grows in cycles, you’ll need several treatments to remove all the hair. The time between treatments varies based on where the hair is removed and how fast your body grows hair, but the interval is typically between four and eight weeks.
