Laser hair removal is a process that uses the power of light to eliminate unwanted hair. At Rejuvenation Medi-Spa, the Lumenis One™ system delivers lasting results with minimal discomfort.
The process is simple. Your body is covered in hair follicles, each of which produces a hair. Laser hair removal works by concentrating beams of light and directing them toward your skin. The pigment in the hairs beneath the surface of your skin absorbs the heat created by that light, which damages the follicle and inhibits the production of hair growth.
Both you and your practitioner wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser light. Once you’re comfortable, your practitioner directs the handpiece of the laser over the treatment area.
The system sends pulses of light into your skin. At the same time, the patented cooling system ensures the surface of your skin remains at a comfortable temperature. Many men and women report a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band as the laser pulses. Others, however, experience virtually no discomfort during sessions.
During your initial consultation, your provider estimates how many treatments you’ll need to achieve optimal results. Treatments are usually spaced out over multiple weeks to ensure hair follicles are treated during the active growth phase, when laser hair removal is most effective. You may need to come in for periodic maintenance treatments to extend your results.
Laser hair removal does require an investment of time and money. However, the cost of the treatment is not high when compared to other hair removal efforts.
High-quality razors aren’t cheap, and replacing the blades over time really adds up. All those shaving creams, depilatory creams, wax strips, and salon visits aren’t free. Not to mention the time it takes to deal with unwanted hair and the resulting rashes, bumps, and skin irritation that follows.
When viewed from a long-term perspective, the cost of laser hair removal makes a great deal of financial sense. The freedom of having soft, smooth skin every day is also hard to place a value on.
