As a medical procedure, your laser hair removal is performed by a licensed medical esthetician who has been extensively trained in the state-of-the-art technology used at our clinic. Dr. Stephen Brown, a board ceritifed plastic surgeon, is always on-site and applies his medical expertise to oversee your treatment.
To make sure laser hair removal can help you eliminate unwanted hair, your first appointment is with one of our medical estheticians. After a thorough skin analysis, they will ask you about your medical history and expectations, as well as review the risks related to the treatment. This is done because we want you to feel as comfortable as possible in your choice to pursue, or not pursue, laser hair removal. A test patch may also be performed to note how your skin reacts to the technology. For this reason, our patients are consistently satisfied with their results and regularly experience no negative side effects, such as burns or pigmentation problems.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser energy penetrates the base of the hair at the follicles, where hair production occurs. The heat destroys the follicle so that it can no longer create hair, and in the days following a session, the hair attached simply breaks off and sheds from your body.
The biggest concern of treatment is the amount of energy to deliver to your skin. If there is too much, it can dramatically increase the risk of burns and other unfavourable effects. If there is too little, you won't see any improvement. Determining the ideal level of energy is based on the training and experience of our estheticians. In addition, before and after every session, the skin in the treated area will be properly cared for by your esthetician to promote a fast, comfortable recovery.
