Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a great alternative to traditional methods of hair removal such as: shaving, waxing, tweezing and depilatories. It is a gentle, safe and effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body of men and women.
At Pro Aesthetics we use the gold standard in Laser Hair Removal – the Candela GentleYAG, which effectively treats all skin tones and ethnicities.
Please Note Laser hair removal is not effective for people with blonde, red, grey, or white hair. It works best on dark coarse hair.
Frequently asked questions:
Laser hair removal works by emitting a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle without harming the surface of the skin.
Most people require at least six treatments for good results. However, factors such as hair density, area to be treated, hormones and hair growth cycle determine number of treatments needed. The hair growth cycle is made up of three stages: growth, transitional and resting. Laser hair removal works by disabling the hair that is in the growth stage at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will get to this active growth stage at different times, additional treatments are necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
The average waiting period between treatments is 4 to 8 weeks.
Females who are experiencing PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) can achieve great results on the entire body, but to remain hair free on the face, treatments are required every three to six months indefinitely.
Laser hair removal is a great treatment for ingrown hairs. It is the only way to permanently get rid of them. Most people start seeing results after the first treatment. After a few sessions, depending on the severity of the scarring and pigmentation caused by ingrown hairs, the skin’s appearance is dramatically improved.
Most people with dark skin believe they are not good candidates for laser treatment. There is a misperception that laser treatments are unsafe for people with dark skin. Laser hair removal is extremely effective on dark skin. The most important thing is that the right laser is used by an experienced practitioner.
