Unwanted hair may be a byproduct of age or genetics, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t lose it – now! Essential Aesthetics and Laser in Charlotte, North Carolina, provides a variety of hair removal methods and treatments for every client and skin type. Call today for an appointment.
Most laser cosmetic procedures work by gently heating the target area. Laser light is ideal for this, since it’s a concentrated source of a specific wavelength of light. This permits targeting of the treatment area — in this case the hair follicle — with minimal effects on surrounding tissue.
Follicles are vulnerable when they’re in the growth phase, since as a hair follicle gets heated, it’s destroyed and loses its ability to regrow hair. Since every hair has its own growth cycle, multiple treatments of an area give the best results. Essential Aesthetics and Laser uses both the CynoSure® Icon™ and Elite+™ lasers for hair removal work, and alters wavelengths to improve performance on different skin types and with different hair colors.
In terms of treatment, there’s little difference. The Elite+ laser is a specialized platform, targeting hair removal as well as other cosmetic treatments, such as visible blood vessel removal, wrinkled skin, and skin spots. The Icon laser is source unit that works with a variety of handpieces, delivering a wider range of cosmetic laser treatments. The MaxR™, MaxRs™, 1064+, and MaxYs™ handpieces allow your esthetician to optimize the treatment to match both skin and hair type. For example, hair that’s both fine and light in color proves a challenge for most hair removal processes. But, the MaxYs handpiece provides high power output over a controlled area to remove problem hairs.
Some clients may have symptoms similar to mild sunburn, but without any of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. This occurs when skin in the treatment area absorbs some of the laser light. Further, there may be slight redness in the area for a couple days. This is more common with some skin and hair types, as well as with more aggressive treatments.
