How does laser hair removal work?
The laser light from the Cutera Coolglide passes through the outer layer of skin and is selectively absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy heats the pigmentation within the hair follicle and effectively disables hair growth. This allows for the reduction of laser hair removal San Diego in the selected areas.
What areas are safe to treat?
We can treat just about any area on the body with San Diego laser hair removal treatments. The most common areas for women are the chin, underarms, upper lip, bikini line, Brazilian, arms and legs. Most common areas for men for laser hair removal San Diego, include shoulders, neck, back, chest and abdomen.
Does laser hair removal work?
Research indicates that between 20% and 30% of the hair follicles are in the growing, or in the Anagen stage, of hair growth at any point in time. As a result, multiple treatments are required to treat all the hairs which enter the Anagen stage at different times. The actual number of treatments of laser hair removal San Diego varies from one individual to the next and also from one area of the skin to the next. Throughout our experience we recommend that on average 6 or more treatments at 4-6 weeks apart are best for maximum results. A small area can take only minutes per session where larger areas can take 40-60 minutes per session.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
At Global Laser Cosmetics we use the most up to date laser technology on the market allowing us to treat all skin types and skin tones. The ND:YAG laser is cleared for laser hair removal San Diego for darker skin tones as well. Does laser hair removal work on all hair types? The one exception is that the laser cannot effectively treat grey, white, or red hair. This is because the laser needs darker melanin pigmentation within the hair follicle for effective elimination of the follicle.
How do I prepare for my first appointment? Does laser hair removal hurt?
Always make sure you have the area shaved the morning of your appointment and make sure to not wax or tweeze the area being treated for at least 4 weeks prior to your first appointment. One of the most common questions that people have is does laser hair removal hurt? The answer to this is that you may experience some discomfort (described as a rubber band snapping back at the skin), so depending on your pain tolerance some patients require numbing cream that you can purchase here on site. If you choose to use numbing cream, you will apply 40-60 minutes before your appointment.
What should I expect after a treatment?
The great thing about laser hair removal San Diego is there is no downtime. One of our highly skilled RN’s (registered nurses) will apply a cream after the appointment to help with any irritation. Also, make sure you apply sunscreen on the area if you will be in direct sunlight. You may experience some redness or sensitivity on the treated area. The redness usually subsides within a few minutes to a few hours and returns to normal. You are able to reapply your make-up, return to work and continue with your normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
How much does it cost?
Prices on laser hair removal San Diego vary for each patient depending on the area of the body being treated and how each individual responds to treatment. That being said, each area will need a minimum of 3 to 6 treatments.
