Our Customized Approach
During your consultation with one of our Skin Care Specialists all of your unwanted hair concerns will be discussed and you will be provided with a customized treatment plan to achieve your goals.
During treatment, the laser emits light energy that passes through the skin and hair shaft. Hair that is in an active growth phase will absorb this light energy and impair the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair follicle’s ability to grow more hair resulting is a permanent reduction of hair in the treated areas.
The laser energy is only attracted to hair follicles that are in the active growth cycle due to their stronger pigment in comparison to hair follicles in other growth cycles. Hair follicles that are currently in the catagen or telogen (non-active) growth stages during your treatment will not be destroyed. Hair grows in different cycles and to target all the hair in the treatment area several sessions are necessary.
Typically, the number of treatments required to effectively remove unwanted hair is between five to seven treatments. However, most patients see improvement with hair becoming less dense and finer with just after a few treatments. Individual factors such as the region of the body being treated and hair type can impact the number of treatments that are necessary. Occasionally, touch-up sessions are required. Laser hair removal with the SopranoXL offers a comfortable and efficient solution to long-term hair removal.
Day of Treatment
You will be asked to shave the treated area within 48 hours prior to treatment. The length of the treatment will be determined by the size of the area being treated. Generally, treatment sessions are spaced out by five to six weeks. Our Skin Care Specialists will advise you what the best time frame is for you to schedule your next treatment.
Laser Hair Removal Recovery
Laser hair removal requires little to zero recovery time and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately following your treatment session. It is normal to experience temporary minimum redness and swelling. It is critical to not expose the treated area to the sun for a week following the treatment and to protect the treated area with sunscreen.
