LASER HAIR REMOVAL
If you are not happy with shaving, tweezing or waxing, laser hair removal may be an option for you. It is one of the most common cosmetic procedures done today. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to decrease future hair growth. Laser treatments can remove hair anywhere from months to years, as the results differ from person to person.
Post Care Instructions:
If area will be exposed to the sun, SPF of at least 30 is required.
Until sensitivity has completely subsided, avoid all of the following:
- Use of scented lotions or soaps, exfoliant creams (Retin-A, glycolic/salicylic and alpha-hydroxy acids), acne creams or gels, loofa sponges and aggressive scrubbing
- Hot or cold water-wash with tepid water
- Swimming pools and spas with multiple chemicals/chlorine
- Activities that cause excessive perspiration
