How Laser Hair Removal Works
We encourage all patients to shave the area to be treated 1 day prior to their treatment. Topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment on more sensitive areas such as the bikini. However, most patients find the treatment very quick and painless. We use Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser with pulse-control technology and a proprietary three-dimensional treatment pattern (FRAC3®) to provide effective, virtually pain free hair removal. Unlike other wavelengths, only Nd:YAG is safe to use on all skin types. Permanent hair reduction takes numerous treatments in order to ensure that each hair growth cycle is being effectively treated. It is important that the proper length of time in between treatments is maintained to ensure proper results.
There is no downtime needed for laser hair removal. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities after treatment.
