The Art of Natural Beauty Center’s advanced lasers work on all skin types thanks to technology that adjusts to each patient’s skin tone. Five distinct laser technologies are utilized to customize treatment to each patient and body area. Laser hair removal works best on dark hair; it will not effectively remove blonde, red, or gray hair. Laser hair removal cannot be performed on individuals who have been treated with Accutane within the past 12 months.
During treatment, the technician will apply the laser to shaved skin in the areas where hair reduction is desired. Most patients report a stinging sensation similar to being snapped with a rubber band. A numbing gel may be applied to help alleviate discomfort in sensitive areas. Minor redness and swelling of the treated area are common immediately following the procedure, but should dissipate within 24 hours.
Hair may appear to grow quickly in the treated area in the days following the treatment; this is actually the skin expelling the dead hair follicles. Gentle exfoliation can help loosen and remove these hairs. Hair in the treated areas will continue to fall out for up to two weeks. New growth will be thinner and less prone to ingrown hairs.
Typically six–eight laser sessions are required to permanently remove hair from an area. Sessions should be scheduled four–six weeks apart for best results. For some patients, minor hair regrowth may occur following successful treatment due to factors such as hormonal imbalance or medical condition. The Art of Natural Beauty Center offers packages that include maintenance sessions to keep skin smooth and hair free for the long-term.
Before and between laser hair removal sessions, hair waxing, plucking and other depilatory hair removal methods should not be used. Shaving is allowed. Hair removal cannot be performed on a recently tanned skin, so tanning or the use of artificial tanning products should be avoided during the two weeks prior to treatment.
