At Spektrum Laser Spa, we want to help you make your hairless dream come true. A common myth about laser hair removal is that it is very expensive and therefore not affordable. We could not disagree more. In the long-term, the cost of laser hair removal will more than offset the cost of waxing. Therefore, we offer this underarms, full Brazilian and full face laser hair removal package, that includes six sessions.
It is important that you find the best hair removal method for you. If you need more reasons to switch to laser hair removal, know that it has none of the downsides of waxing or shaving. No ingrown hair, itchiness or growth at all at the end of this hair removal treatment. While a bikini or face wax will always be painful, underarms, full Brazilian and full face laser hair removal is a straightforward, safe and comfortable way to remove unwanted body hair.
What are underarms, full Brazilian and full face laser hair removal?
This package offers six sessions of underarms, full Brazilian and full face laser hair removal. It includes both underarms, full face (upper lip, chin, cheeks and sideburns) and full Brazilian (bikini front, bikini line, intimate parts and thong line). It is the perfect solution for patients who are tired of suffering through waxing each month or who suffer from ingrown hair outbreaks. It is an affordable solution that provides long-lasting results.
This laser hair removal package is a discount website exclusive. The Brazilian covers the front of the pubic region, under the intimate areas and up the back of the thong line. The full face is our standard full face laser hair removal package. The underarms cover both armpits.
Female clients report that the bikini area can become more sensitive closer to and during their monthly cycle. Although many take their period into consideration when booking their appointment, know that we will treat you regardless of your cycle. You simply need to wear a tampon.
The bikini is a quick area to treat although hormonal. A full Brazilian laser hair removal session lasts up to 25 minutes. Because it is a hormonal region, the bikini may require additional sessions. A session of this package will last up to 40 minutes.
How do I prepare for my session? What about aftercare?
Patients need to shave at least three hours prior to their laser session. They must clean their skin of any cream, lotion or moisturizer. If you take medication, make sure you tell your laser technician. Some medications, such as antibiotics, increase photosensitivity and may make the treatment more unpleasant.
Other medications such as retinoids can interfere with the laser treatment. If you have been on holiday and expose yourself to the sun in a bikini, you will need to wait at least 15 days prior to coming in for a session. The skin around the bikini will have tanned and be in an excited state that can interfere with the treatment.
Laser hair removal aftercare is straightforward. You should avoid the sun for at least ten days after your session. Avoid hot showers, sauna, working out or any other heat inducing activity. The thermal energy of the treatment stays in the skin for up to 24 hours and additional heat could lead to burning.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses a concept called selective photothermolysis. It is the matching of a wavelength and a pulse duration that will allow the laser to target a specific object without damaging the surrounding skin tissues. Here, the target is the pigment in the hair.
The light beam produced by the laser hair removal machine will target the pigment in the hair. Once the light energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair, it will travel all the way down to the follicle. There, it will turn into thermal energy and anchor itself to the follicle. The heat will damage the follicle beyond repair and prevent any further growth.
It is the combination of successive sessions that will lead to hair growth reduction by up to 95%. Due to the hair growth cycle, only 20% of body hair is in the right stage for laser hair removal to work: the anagen phase of growth. Thus one session can only target up to 20% hair. Plus, the bikini being quite a hormonal area and the growth cycle being mostly triggered by hormones, treating the Brazilian may take a bit longer.
Can anyone do laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is safe and suitable for all skin tones and hair color. Laser treatments are as efficient on dark skin and people of color as they are on fair skin. At Spektrum Laser Spa, we use the V-Frost Diode 808 nm by Vertex Lasers, which has a ND: YAG laser.
ND: YAG lasers are very safe and effective on dark skin as well as fair hair. The 1064 nm wavelength deposits its energy deep into the dermis without relying too much on melanin to do so, as opposed to other laser machines.
There are contraindications for laser hair removal but they are not related to skin color. Pregnant women should not undergo laser hair removal. Antibiotics and Accutane treatment will increase photosensitivity, etc.
