Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Laser light is attracted to the pigment in hair follicles. Patients with light brown to black hair can see great hair removal results with this treatment. However, certain hair colors do not contain enough pigment to be effectively treated, so men and women with blonde, gray, white or red hair may not be able to achieve the same degree of hair removal. Any skin color can see results from this treatment.
Laser hair removal offers several benefits over methods like shaving and electrolysis:
- Large areas can be treated at one time
- No downtime
- Few side effects
- Most parts of the body are treatable
Unlike temporary hair removal methods, once an actively growing hair follicle is successfully treated with the laser, it will never grow again. The laser treatment targets actively growing follicles for permanent hair reduction. During each session, the laser will be passed over the treatment area and a highly concentrated beam of light will be emitted which will penetrate through the outer layers of skin and down to the hair follicles below where it is attracted to and absorbed by the melanin (color) in the hair follicles.
Once absorbed by the hair follicles, the light energy transfers to heat, which works to coagulate (curdle) the follicle and cuts off the blood supply, rendering the hair inactive. When effectively treated, the hair will cease to grow back. Utilizing the Elite laser from Cynosure, we are able to use two different wavelengths of laser light. This allows us to treat all skin types including tanned skin. There is no need to discontinue treatments during the summer months.
How many Treatments do I need?
The average is 6 treatments and you will see 50 to 80% hair reduction. This resistant hair, that has been resistant to three or four wavelengths of light and multiple treatments, will generally be fine, wispy, less coarse, lighter and all the hairs will be synchronized into the same growth cycle with a prolongation of the sleeping phase, or telogen phase. Thus, many Shanti laser hair removal program patients join the Shanti's hair removal club. These are patients who have completed the Shanti's six-treatment laser hair removal package can then come back anytime when there is regrowth of resistant hair for a low-cost, fast laser removal, which will again provide a prolonged sleeping (telogen) phase of months in duration.
What is the average cost?
Our prices are outlined below as a per treatment session. However, if you purchase 6 treatments for any area, you will receive 20% off. For example, laser hair removal for the lip and chin area cost $100 per treatment. Six treatments will only cost $480, therefore, you save $120!
