Laser Hair Removal
Are you tired of spending valuable time shaving?
Let’s talk about unwanted hair. Permanent hair removal technology has come a long way. Let us show you how IPL permanent hair removal can keep you smooth all year long, regardless of skin tone. Imagine never having to worry about shaving, waxing or plucking ever again! With a few, quick treatments we can tackle any facial or body area that concerns you.
Here at Aesthetica, we use state-of-the-art technology to obtain permanent hair reduction and achieve optimal results. The Cynosure Elite is a dual wavelength Laser, which means this laser can safely and effectively treat all skin types. These wavelengths include a 755 Alexandrite, and the 1064 ND YAG wavelength. With this technology, we are able to kill 10-15% of hair follicles during each treatment. When you complete a full package of LHR with this machine, you can expect at least an 80% of permanent reduction in the hair. This laser allows treatments to be almost painless, because it has a cooling system attached during each treatment
How it Works
Don’t let the name fool you: laser hair removal is practically painless and completely comfortable. Laser Hair Removal has an extremely unique science behind it. It uses laser light pulses to destroy hair follicles by targeting their melanin. The pigment in the follicle absorbs the laser pulse, which damages the follicle enough to slow hair regrowth. The Cynosure Elite Laser travels deeper into your skin to destroy both the hair bulb & stem cells. What does this mean? Unlike waxing or shaving, the hair will not grow back. How fantastic is that!

WHAT SETS IT APART:
Unlike many other Laser Hair Removal machines, this laser can treat any skin type! Because of its ability to treat all skin types, treatments are customizable from patient to patient. It can detect the difference between pigment in the skin and pigment in the hair follicle. Unlike many other lasers on the market, Cynosure Elite Laser allows for an extremely tolerable experience for the patient.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Say bye-bye to razor bumps and unwanted hair! We suggest 6 to 8 treatments on the body or 8 to 10 treatments on the face, which will usually remove up to 70-80% of hair. It works great on black and brown hair, does not work on red, blonde, or grey hair. As you go through your LHR treatments, expect to see finer, thinner, hair.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL REALLY WORK?
Laser hair removal definitely works, typically providing a 90%- 95% reduction in 6-9 treatments. Various factors such as hair color, hair thickness, ethnicity, and hormones play a role in the number of treatments and the type of laser to use.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Laser hair removal is a long-lasting form of hair removal that damages or destroys the hair follicle. However, the hair may regrow, particularly if the follicle is damaged and not destroyed during the laser hair removal procedure. For this reason, many doctors now refer to laser hair removal as long-term hair removal rather than permanent hair removal.
ARE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS PAINFUL?
Pain is now a thing of the past! The Apogee Elite Laser by Cynosure is gentle, safe, fast, and powerfully effective. Unlike electrolysis, the laser zaps the hair in a series of microsecond pulses, turning the heat off before it can burn the skin. We use continuous cooling on your skin to make sure the skin cools while the laser is pulsing. The result is a completely painless treatment that only damages the hair follicle. There may still be a measure of mild discomfort felt depending on the texture of the hair, the color of the skin, and the area being treated. Some patients have described this discomfort as a soft tickle or being touched with an ice cube. For those who are very sensitive, we can apply a topical pharmaceutical anesthetic, which will eliminate all discomfort. Before treatment, we can test an area to determine if the anesthetic is necessary, however, nearly 95% of our patients do not require the anesthetic.
Our Doctors Say...
The most common thing we hear from clients is ‘why didn’t I get this done sooner’? If you suffer from excess hair, ingrown hairs, or irritated skin from shaving or waxing, the time is now to start treatment
Before & After
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. It works by having the laser light cling on to the hair follicle that connects the root of the hair to your skin. As the laser uses the hair to absorb the heat, the roots start to loosen up and “burn” the hair off. This entire process is safe and pain-free.
The laser focuses on a pigment called melanin, which is what gives color to our skin and hair. People with darker hair typically have shorter sessions than people with light hair or fair skin. Consult with your medical specialist to make sure that laser hair removals are compatible with your skin and hair type.
Laser hair removal is the most popular pain-free hair removal procedure in the world. Side effects are uncommon but possible. Some swelling and discoloration can be expected, both of which should heal up in just a matter of few days.
A numbing cream will be applied on the area to be treated to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.
Take note that laser hair removal does not produce permanent results. However, you can expect finer hair that is lesser in volume upon regrowth. Results can last up to a full-year, as long as you have touch-ups within the first six months.
