What is Laser Hair Removal?

One indisputable fact about facial and body hair is that it always comes back. Oftentimes, people spend a lot of time and money trying to manage and remove stubborn facial and body hair with mixed, short-lived results. Fortunately, Laser Hair Removal is a safe and effective solution to eliminate unwanted hair for good!

Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive procedure that is virtually pain-free and requires little to no downtime. At 785 Med Spa, we use InMode Diolaze technology to ensure safe, consistent results. The device uses short bursts of laser energy to target the pigmented, melanin-rich root of individual hair follicles to eliminate hair growth. A typical treatment regimen includes six sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. However, this varies depending on the treatment area, and each client’s unique skin and hair type.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal targets pigment. Clients with greater contrast between their hair color and skin tone, for example, darker hair and lighter skin, see the best results. Individuals with tanned or darker skin have more melanin in the upper layers of the epidermis which can cause it to absorb some of the laser light. If the surrounding skin absorbs too much laser light, it can lead to burning. However, InMode Diolaze’s technology allows us to treat patients with a wide range of skin tones and our specially trained providers tailor their approach to each client’s needs.

Individuals with darker or tanned skin, receive a less aggressive treatment that begins with lower laser levels. We spot-test a small sample area before moving forward with treatment to ensure their skin will not burn during the procedure. They may also require more treatments to achieve their desired results.

Laser Hair Removal is not ideal for people with white, gray, light blonde, or red hair. If you are considering this service and believe there is the possibility your hair color may change to gray in the future, we recommend scheduling a consultation. Do not postpone treatment to maximize its efficacy and guarantee ideal results!

Laser Hair Removal can benefit men and women. Some of the best areas of the body for this treatment are the lower legs, bikini line, and underarms. It can also target areas of the face including the upper lip and chin, however, facial hair is more challenging to remove. For men, Laser Hair Removal is a great solution for permanently reducing chest and back hair.
