Laser Hair Removal
Patients need to be informed that very good result with Laser Hair Removal is when approximately 15% clearance is achieved in each treatment session, and that a final outcome of clearance of 80% or more after 6 treatments is exceptional. They should never expect 100% clearance.
Patients may respond very little or not at all, even if all the settings and techniques are properly applied because of insufficient melanin in the hair follicles, hormonal conditions or medical issues. The clinician should consider a checkup after the second treatment to ensure, with photographic verification, that hair clearance is progressing at the same or similar rate as described herein, otherwise the patient might opt out of continued treatments.
Depending on the treatment area you may need four (4) to eight (8) treatments in four (4) to eight (8) week intervals.
Q & A
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal gently, safely, and effectively removes hair in areas you don’t want it, and is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. The team at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness use the advanced Aerolase LightPod Neo laser to remove hair from your:
- Arms and underarms
- Back and legs
- Bikini area
The advanced laser treatment targets your hair follicle, damaging it to prevent future hair growth without affecting the surrounding skin.
What's the Aerolase LightPod Neo laser?
Aerolase LightPod Neo laser is a state-of-the-art tool that uses high-speed pulse energy to destroy your hair follicle. Unlike other other laser hair removal systems, the LightPod Neo is pain-free and gentle, and often considered a pleasant experience.
That advanced pulse system also allows it to target fine, light-colored hair. Other types of hair removal systems only work best on light-colored skin with dark hair, but LightPod Neo is safe for all skin types, including fair, tanned, and dark skin.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
To get the best treatment results, the team at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness recommend you not pluck, tweeze, or wax your unwanted hair for up to six weeks before starting laser hair removal. Your hair needs to be in the growing phase of the hair cycle in order for the laser to be able to effectively destroy the follicle. Plucking, tweezing, and waxing temporarily removes the root of your hair, which may hinder the desired results.
What can I expect during the laser hair removal treatment?
The LightPod Neo laser is one of the most gentle laser hair removal systems available, so you can expect a painless experience. During treatment, the aesthetic specialist holds your skin taut while the pulsed light targets your hair follicle.
The laser works quickly, but treatment time may vary depending on the size of the area you’re having worked on. Your chin may take only 10 minutes, but legs can take up to an hour.
You may notice a significant reduction in hair after the first treatment. However, because your hair grows in cycles, the team at Rejuvenate Weight Loss and Wellness recommend a series of treatments set at 3-4 week intervals to get the best results.
