laser hair removal arrives at maxwax!
maxwax-ers have been asking us for laser hair removal services. We listened and are excited to offer laser hair removal at our west side location. Our machine is a GentleLase Pro which is the BEST hair removal laser machine available on the market.
how does laser hair removal work?
The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into the skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. The GentleLase Pro has a patented cooling device which protects the superficial layers of skin with a cool burst of cryogen before the laser penetrates the skin. Laser treatments have been used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures and they are safe.
You and the practitioner will wear safety glasses to protect your eyes during the procedure. The practitioner will use a small hand piece that touches your skin to deliver the light. You may feel a light spray of coolant on your skin before each laser pulse.
what results can i expect?
Due to hair growth cycles, multiple laser treatments are required to provide permanent reduction in hair growth. Depending on skin type and hair color, you may need five to eight treatments - or sometimes more. Treatment efficacy may also vary from person to person.
In order to achieve the best possible results we suggest that you start and finish your laser hair removal treatments within a consistent time-frame. We suggest an average of six weeks between between each season.
