What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal quickly and easily eliminates unwanted hair from all parts of the body, leaving the skin velvety smooth. It’s a safe and effective alternative to shaving, waxing, plucking and electrolysis treatments, and offers successful long-term results.
Dermetics uses Soprano Ice — a diode laser proven safe and comfortable for all skin types, including tanned skin. All laser treatments are supervised by our physicians to ensure optimal safety and results.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
During laser hair removal, rays of light energy are directed to hair follicles. The energy targets pigment in the follicle, causing it to lose its ability to grow new hair.
The best results can be seen with darker hair — white, grey and red hair are less responsive to the laser energy. In general, laser treatment is effective even on the deepest follicles on any part of the body. Areas commonly treated are underarms, face and the bikini area, as well as larger areas such as legs and backs.
Since only follicles in the active growth phase are targeted, most patients require a series of treatments. Depending on the area being treated, we recommend between four and six sessions one to two months apart for optimal results.
To prepare for your pain free hair removal, avoid sun exposure, self-tanners, waxing or plucking of areas to be treated for a minimum of six weeks prior to treatment. Regular shaving is permitted. On the day of the treatment, areas should be shaved and free of antiperspirants, creams or cosmetics.
