Laser Treatments

Electrolysis Treatments

Another option for permanent hair removal, electrolysis is appropriate for clients where laser treatment is not recommended due to hair or skin color. It can be used effectively on all hair colors but is usually reserved for blond, gray, white or red hair and smaller areas, such as the face. This time-tested method has been used to remove hair since the late 1800’s.

Hair growth can be determined by heredity, age, or hormonal stimulation. Certain drugs and medical conditions can stimulate hair growth-especially in the facial area of women. All these factors determine the number of sessions needed to eliminate unwanted hair. Scheduling an electrolysis session as you need according to your personal hair growth, will keep you smooth with no need any longer to shave, wax or tweeze.

Using the thermolysis method of electrolysis and having treatments completed by a certified medical electrologist will assure effective, safe treatment. Let’s work together to throw those tweezers away and enjoy looking in the mirror again!

During the consultation, a determination is made as to the best treatment process for your needs: laser hair removal or electrolysis. The consultation is not only an explanation of the two different methods for hair removal but also a time for questions and to give the client insight into the reasons for hair growth. This gives an understanding of the treatment schedule and what to expect while undergoing treatments.

Using the Candela Gentle Laser Plus laser, the gold standard in hair removal, hairs are quickly and effectively removed from facial and body areas. Laser hair removal is recommended only for candidates with dark hair and lighter skin tone in order to have the most effective result.
.The energy of the laser beam is directed and interacts with the dark pigment of the hair, ultimately eliminating the follicle and the hair in it. The Candela GentleLase is unique in having DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device) that cools the skin during treatment, while providing comfortable, effective treatments. Many laser treatments can be completed in 15 minutes or less making this a perfect lunchtime appointment.

Part of the consultation will include obtaining a medical history as well as doing a test treatment to determine the appropriate setting for your hair and skin tone. The number of treatments needed to complete hair removal varies from person to person. Factors that can determine the number of treatments needed include: coarseness of hair, skin and hair color and area receiving treated. As a percentage of hairs are eliminated with each session, multiple treatments will be necessary to achieve smoothness.
