What is half arms laser hair removal?
This laser hair removal special is for six sessions. The half arm covers two areas clients can choose from: beneath the deltoid down to the elbow or from the elbow down to the wrist. Sessions generally take 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal uses a concept called selective photothermolysis. During a laser hair removal session, the laser emits light energy. The pigment in the hair absorbs that energy and sends it traveling through to the hair follicle. There, the light turns into thermal energy, damaging the tube-shaped sacs within the hair follicle. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Yes, laser hair removal is safe. However it can occasionally cause side effects, such as pain and discomfort, and red skin that may last for some time. Laser hair removal may not be suitable for everyone, including pregnant women. There’s no evidence to suggest that laser hair removal causes skin cancer. To see if laser hair removal is the best hair removal for you, schedule your free consultation.
Is this painful?
Patients refer to discomfort to describe the sensation during a laser hair removal session. Laser hair removal is not painful and will feel like pinching or a rubber snapping at the skin very fast. Our laser technicians do their best to ensure that your overall experience is comfortable for each patient.
Is this permanent?
No, laser hair removal is not permanent as per the FDA. Studies show that laser hair removal can reduce hair growth by up to 90%. The remaining hair will be lighter and softer.
Is laser hair removal for everyone?
Men and women can undergo laser hair removal. Light skin and dark hair is the ideal combination for the best results. However, thanks to technology improvement and the advent of diode lasers and ND:YAG lasers, dark skins as well as people with fair hair can also undergo laser hair removal.
Regardless of a patient’s skin tone and type, the likeliness of side effects drastically reduces if you have no history of abnormal scarring, excessive sun exposure, allergies or herpes infection. Schedule a consultation with a laser technician to discuss the treatment and see if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal.
What areas can be treated?
Patients can undergo laser hair removal on their full body, excluding the forehead, ears and eyebrows. Areas are categorized according to size.
How many half arms laser hair removal sessions do I need?
The number of sessions a patient will require varies depending on different factors: skin type and complexion, hair color, coarseness of hair, genetics, hair growth cycle, hormones, medical treatments, etc.
Some areas require more sessions than others because they are more hormonal. The key to a successful laser hair removal treatment is consistency. It is essential that each session is five to eight weeks apart.
Patients will need from six up to twelve sessions depending on the factors mentioned above.
How long will the procedure take?
Session duration varies on the treated area. Treatments on larger areas such as the back or legs can take 45 minutes up to 1 hour. On the other hand, treatments on smaller areas such as the underarms and bikini can take 15-20 minutes.
Each session of this half arms laser hair removal package will take 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
When will I start to see results?
You will need at least 2 sessions before being able to tell a difference.
