Laser Hair Removal
About Laser Hair Removal
At SkinMedix we use 2 proven lasers, the LightSheer Duet & The Candela YAG for the treatment of unwanted hair on all skin types. During a treatment, laser energy is delivered to the hair follicle to heat up the hair and significantly impedes the follicles ability to re-grow hair. A minimum or 6 to 12 treatments once every 4 to 6 weeks is required to achieve 80 to 90% hair reduction. It is normal for small amounts of hair to grow back and this could require a periodic maintenance treatment once or twice a year.
How to prepare for your Laser Hair Removal appointment:
- Shave the desired treatment areas the same day
- Remove all makeup, deodorant and lotion prior to treatment
- Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and self-tanners
- Be sure to notify us if you are on any new medications as some are photo-sensitizing
