Laser Hair Removal now available!

We are sAlma Laser Hair removalo excited to announce we’ve added Laser Hair Removal to our list of services!  Here’s all you need to know about this treatment:

How does a laser remove hair?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair.  We’ve purchased the Cynosure Apogee Elite Plus laser – one of the best machines on the market!  During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. It typically takes multiple laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. That’s why packages of at least 6 treatments are recommended, and we offer a special package pricing.  Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.

Is It Safe?
Our laser was developed in conjunction with some of the world’s leading authorities on the use of lasers for medical applications. By using the principle of Thermokinetic Selectivity™, the laser “parameters” (guidelines for the effective use of the laser during treatment) were chosen to match the pulse width to the size and location of the hair follicle. The result is a safer, faster and more effective way to eliminate unwanted hair.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Generally speaking, if you are concerned about unwanted hair, you are probably a candidate for laser hair removal. Our diverse laser system can safely and effectively treat all skin types. Other factors, like hair color and thickness, can influence the treatment process, but are generally best evaluated and discussed in person.  Lasers do not work on white / very pale blonde hair or “peach-fuzz.”
Is the treatment painful?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of slight pin pricks or rubber band snaps to the skin. The majority of patients tolerate this sensation without anesthetics, but we do offer numbing cream if needed. Within about 30 minutes of treatment, the area may become pink or red; this may last from a few hours to one day. However, for patients that may feel they are sensitive to pain, we also utilize the best skin cooling system on the market today…a state-of-the-art process!
How long does it take?
Each laser pulse treats about a half inch area, which can contain ten or more hairs. The amount of time needed depends on the size of the area to be treated. The lip usually takes less than one minute; other areas, such as the leg, may take significantly longer.
How many treatments will be necessary?
Hair grows in cycles. The laser only affects hair when it is in its early growth phase. In fact, the laser will disable follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment. At any time, some hair follicles are dormant. Repeated sessions will be necessary to treat these follicles when they re-enter the growth phase.  We recommend hitting each growth cycle twice, so our packages are made of of 6 treatments.  More may be recommended and will be discussed at your complimentary consultation.
