Laser Hair Removal
With Laser Hair Removal Treatment, hair from large areas of the face and body can be removed. There is no longer a need for painful tweezing, shaving, depilatories, waxing, or electrolysis.
Why Go to Beatitude for Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
We have the best device, Candela’s GentleMax Laser. It has been rated #1 by physicians for laser hair removal. It can treat all skin types. The treatment is fast and requires no messy gel. The treatment is fairly comfortable for most areas. Also, after the initial series, Beatitude clients get 50% off for their touch-ups for life. See below.
How does Laser Hair Treatment work?
The laser light of the GentleMax device specifically targets the pigment of the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin intact. The light then destroys the follicle so that the hair growth is inhibited.
Who is a candidate for Laser Hair Treatment?
Men and women with unwanted facial or body hair are fans of laser hair reduction. Many men use it for removal of back hair, as well as a reduction of facial hair so that shaving becomes virtually unnecessary.
For women, unwanted hair can be a significant embarrassment. Laser hair removal can rid women of unwanted facial or body hair on a variety of areas, such as on the upper lip, chin, chest, stomach, arms, armpits, legs, and bikini line.
Note that Laser Hair Treatment works on all skin types but not all hair colors. Blonde, light red, white, and gray hair does not contain enough pigment for the laser to work.
What can I expect from Laser Hair Treatment?
The GentleMax procedure is virtually painless. As the laser device is passed over the area to be treated, it feels much like the snap of a rubber band. It has cryogen cooling which is sprayed before the laser is fired. The treatment is comfortable; therefore, numbing cream is not necessary.
While no hair removal method is 100% permanent, the little bit of hair that grows back after Laser Hair Treatment is lighter and softer. A series of treatments is necessary in order to reduce hair growth as much as possible. This is because hair grows in cycles, but not all hair is in the same cycle at the same time. Since the laser can only affect hair during the growth phase, the laser will target different hair follicles during each appointment.
What does recovery from Laser Hair Treatment require?
There is no down time after Laser Hair Treatment, but you may experience some mild swelling and redness for a few days. Most clients say the irritation is less than after shaving or waxing. If the laser hair treatment is to be done on sun-exposed area, you must avoid the sun 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the treatment. If you are tanned, we will have to wait until the tan has faded before we can treat you.
How long do the results of Laser Hair Treatment last?
While the hair reduction is permanent, there may be some additional growth. For this reason, some of our clients do occasional touch-up treatments.
How many treatments do I need and how much does it cost?
We start with a series of 5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. After the series, we generally see 50-90% reduction, with the lighter skin types seeing greater results. Darker skin types need 6-12 treatments to start.
A package of 5 treatments has 20% discount. After the initial series, our clients receive 50% off subsequent treatments for that area. If a client has done many areas, they can also do time-based touch-ups.
