What Does Laser Hair Removal Involve?
During laser hair removal, we use a laser to treats the hair follicles and, thus, keep them from producing any more hair. Since the laser can only affect hair follicles that are actively producing hair, the client will need multiple treatments at our office in Nashville, TN. Hair has a life cycle with three stages: dormant, active and shedding. That life cycle takes four to six weeks, on average, so the client’s sessions will have to be scheduled accordingly. Most people need a series of treatment sessions to get the desired results.
Trace Skin Care uses Cynosure’s Apogee Elite system to remove hair. It can be safely used for all skin tones and is particularly effective for patients with fair to olive skin (I to IV on the Fitzpatrick scale). Results may vary depending on the thickness and color of the hair, among other factors. Eventually, after multiple treatment sessions, you will see a reduction in hair growth.
Laser hair removal can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, so the patient should avoid exposure to the sun during the treatment as much as possible. If they need to go outside, they should wear sunscreen and take other protective measures.
The patient should not undergo electrolysis or waxing for a set amount of time before the procedure. Similarly, they should avoid plucking, for all of these hair removal methods disturb the follicle and will, thus, reduce the effectiveness of the laser hair removal. On the other hand, they may shave before treatment to help the laser treat the follicles thoroughly.
