How does this differ from waxing or electrolysis?
Waxing is only temporary. You have to do that every 2 to 4 week,
Electrolysis is very traumatic for the skin, it is invasive. A
needle is inserted into the follicle (skin) and an electrical charge or
heat, disable the hair follicle. it takes a very long time to do a body
area and is very painful. Scars can form, if not done precisely. A lot
of electrologists are now recognizing the advantage of laser, and are
getting to training to switch over to the new technology.
Question; Can all hair colors and skin types be done?
skin types can be done, with our laser. We have 3 different lasers to do
all skin colors, including light, tanned, Asian, dark, or African
American skin. Very few laser practices can do that variety. During your
free consultation, with our laser specialist, you will be evaluated for the best plan of
treatment for your particular skin type. Unfortunately hairs that has no
pigment in it cannot be successfully treated, such as white, blonde,
grey, or red hair . If the white or grey hairs that have no pigment near
the root, it can be treated. Some of these hair growths will be slowed
down or permanently reduced. This will be evaluated at your
Question; There are a lot of offices doing laser now, how do I know if
the place is good or not?
have to be very careful, even a dermatology or plastic surgery office
can be a poor choice. Some of the doctors are not trained properly and
are usually very busy, and don’t have the time to spend doing the
training or the procedure properly. They rush it, to get to the next
patient in the waiting room. They sometimes let their receptionist do
it, believe it or not, or a poorly trained nurse. We take our time to do
it right. Our laser specialist has done hundreds of hours of training
throughout the years, on lasers, and is certified by the “Light Speed”
center of Florida, and the 8 0Rocky Mountain Laser College” of Denver He
is a “Certified Medical Laser Specialist”. Do not go to a spa or salon,
you are asking for trouble, unless they are trained from the two
training centers mentioned above. Ask for credentials and patient charts
with “before” and “after”pictures,of “real” patients, not “stock” photos
from the laser company. They should have to least completed a 40 hour
training program in laser hair removal.
Question; Are there danger or side effect?
If done by a certified specialist, there is very little or no risk.
These type lasers have-been around in the medical field for about 35
years now, with proven safety. The side effects are usually slight
redness and mild swelling for about 1 to 4 hours. We have a lot of
people doing the treatments on their lunch break with no "down time".
