The Laser Center treatment process is as smooth as the results we achieve. Treatment sessions are quick and require minimal personal care for the duration of the treatment process.
No waxing, tweezing, bleaching, depilatories or electrolysis for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Shaving is fine and does not effect treatment. The area to be treated should be shaved before treatment.
Day of Treatment
If you haven’t previously received a consultation, you will receive a personalized treatment plan and price quote at that time. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions during the consultation.
The laser treats many hairs at a time, enabling short treatment sessions. Depending on the size of the treatment area, a session may last between five minutes (lip, chin, etc.) and 60 minutes (back, legs, etc.)
When the laser pulses over your skin, you will feel a momentary, slight stinging or tingling sensation. The sensation disappears the moment the laser stops pulsing. For those with more sensitive skin, a topical anesthetic, can be applied prior to treatment.
Immediately following laser treatment, you may experience redness, similar to a mild sunburn. These normal tissue responses are temporary and will usually disappear over the next several hours. As soon as the mild redness from the day’s treatment subsides, clients may resume normal daily activities.
Following treatment (12-24 hours) treat the area gently. Avoid rubbing, scratching or picking at the treated area. Avoid very hot showers, baths, soaking in a hot tub or swimming in a chlorinated pool. Pat the skin dry after bathing or showering.
Around day 3-7 after treatment you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment. In-between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hairs but it is permissible to shave. This process can be helped along by gentle use of a washcloth or loofa sponge four to five days after treatment.
