Laser Hair Reduction/Removal
Removing unwanted body hair has been a time-consuming or painful proposition in the past. Whether you chose to remove hair at home with topical depilatories or shaving, or invested in professional treatments like waxing, the process was never fully satisfying and had to be repeated regularly to maintain results. Now, laser technology has made removal of unwanted facial and body hair safer, more comfortable and permanent. To make hair removal even easier we utilize the Luctronic Advantage laser that works 40% faster than other systems!
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive approach to permanent hair reduction. A handheld device delivers targets laser energy directly into the hair follicle, damaging the follicle so current hair falls out and no further hair can grow in its place. At New Visage, we use the LUTRONIC ADVANTAGE hair reduction system, which glides over the surface of the skin with a chilled compression tip that keeps the skin at a comfortable temperature throughout the procedure. The procedure is appropriate for all skin types and can be used on any area of the body.
What does it treat?
Laser hair removal can be used on the following treatment areas:
- Upper lip and chin
- Bikini area
What is the procedure like?
Laser hair removal is performed without anesthesia and usually takes less than one hour to complete. Larger or multiple treatment areas may take longer. Thanks to the integrated cooling system, the procedure is relatively comfortable for patients. Topical anesthetic can be used on more sensitive areas if the patient chooses. After the procedure, you can immediately return to regular activities. However, it is important to protect the treatment area from sun exposure for a number of days to prevent scarring or skin discoloration.
What kind of results can I expect?
Results of laser hair removal are typically seen in the days following the procedure. This treatment only addresses hair during the growth cycle, which does not include all the hair follicles in the treatment area. Most patients will require multiple treatment sessions, in order to address all the follicles and establish permanent hair reduction. We offer discounted packages for multiple treatment sessions to make the procedure more affordable.
Laser hair removal is the top way to achieve permanent hair reduction today. The procedure is relatively painless and will not interfere significantly with your daily schedule. To find out if laser hair removal is right for you, contact New Visage at 252-808-2NEW.
