Laser Hair Removal (Elite+)
Hair removal made easier
Shaving, plucking, tweezing, waxing—all these methods are temporary fixes for unwanted hair. Over and above this, many of these methods are painful and can cause redness and ingrown hairs. These effects simply add to the inconvenience of using these methods even more.
With our laser hair removal treatments, you can quickly and easily reduce unwanted hair on your body or face. Since the treatments produce long-lasting results, you won’t need to worry about hair removal for a very long time, if ever again.
How laser hair removal works
The secret to effectively removing unwanted hair lies in the technology. Cynosure’s laser hair removal treatments target and destroy the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is smooth, hair-free skin that lasts.
During your treatment, you will receive protective eyewear before a handpiece is applied to the treatment area. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicles, which ultimately destroys them. Once the hair follicle is permanently damaged, it’s unable to regrow.
Treatments are non-invasive, which means no downtime is required. Several treatments will be required to achieve the desired outcome though. Your practitioner can give you a better indication of how many treatments you will require during your consultation.
Take control of your skin at any age, and get the results you want.
Treatments are comfortable and will vary from patient to patient. Patients describe a range of sensations during treatment, from tingling to the snapping of a rubber band. Overall, laser hair removal treatments are more than tolerable. If discomfort is a major concern for you, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment.
Before your laser hair removal session, the area should be shaved no sooner than 24 hours prior. Waxing, tweezing and any other treatments that pull the hair out at the root should be avoided. Direct sun exposure and UV tanning beds should be avoided for at least two weeks before your appointment. Sunburned skin cannot undergo laser treatments. Your provider will also notify you to stop using any topical products that could cause photosensitivity. This only needs to be done for about three days before your session. Your provider will give you a list of any medications that need to be avoided too. Lastly, any cosmetic treatments, including peels, microdermabrasion and cosmetic injections, should be avoided for at least two weeks before any laser hair removal session.
To achieve optimal benefits, patients typically have multiple treatments, scheduled 3-4 weeks apart, though this varies depending on a number of factors. Your practitioner can discuss a treatment plan that’s right for you.
