At Synergy Wellness in Bakersfield, CA, we provide this treatment to people who want to be free from the hassle of hair removal forever.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses state-of-the-art equipment to permanently address the problem of unwanted hairs. It is conducted in a series of sessions that targets the areas you want to treat using light technology. Many women treat their legs, underarms, bikini lines, and areas of their face. Men can get this treatment too! For men, commonly treated areas include the back, chest, neck, and face.
What Are the Advantages of This Treatment?
The biggest advantage of this treatment is the fact that once all of your unwanted hairs are gone, they will not come back. After you choose laser hair removal, you will not need to go back to shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, or other methods of hair removal. Some of the advantages to getting rid of your unwanted hair for good include:
- Saving time by not having to remove your hair at home
- Eliminating the need to schedule waxing appointments
- Saving money on a lifetime of hair removal products
- Feeling smooth and soft all the time
- Wearing any clothing you want without worrying about the appearance of unwanted hairs
- Having skin that is free from the irritation caused by other hair removal methods
What Makes This Treatment So Efficient at Removing Hair?
It Targets Hair at the Follicle
Each of your hairs grows out of a tube-shaped sac called a follicle. If the follicle is damaged, it becomes unable to produce a hair. When we apply a laser to the areas you want us to treat, the light it admits is absorbed by the hairs. Once absorbed, this light alters the follicle and inhibits future hair growth.
It Is Color-Sensitive
The laser’s light is specially designed to be attracted to melanin, which is responsible for the color in your hair. Therefore, it can target your unwanted hairs without harming the surrounding tissue. For this reason, laser hair removal is an especially safe treatment.
It Is Scheduled According to the Hair Growth Cycle
Your hair grows in several phases: anagen, catagen, telogen and exogen. Only hairs in the anagen phase are active, and only these hairs can be treated by the laser. At any given moment, only 20-40% of your hairs are in the anagen phase. Not to worry! By performing our treatment in a series of sessions, we can treat all of your unwanted hairs.
Each individual session will get rid of all the hairs that are in the anagen phase. Between treatments, a new group of hairs will enter the anagen phase and appear. Your next session will treat these new hairs. We will repeat this process until you achieve the results you desire.
What Kind of Lasers Do We Use?
At our medspa, we use Diolaze lasers. Diolaze is an industry-leading means of hair removal that uses Nd:YAG technology to eliminate hairs. One of the best features of our Diolaze lasers is their built-in skin-cooling functionality. This prevents the surface of your skin from heating up too much, increasing your comfort during the treatment.
Cooling your skin does not affect the laser’s efficacy against the hairs, because it relies on the beams’ wavelength and fluency, not heat, to get rid of the hair.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of treatments that is right for you will depend on the color of your hair, your skin type, and where you want to be treated. This treatment works best on dark hairs, which are generally the ones people want to remove the most. Your underarms and bikini lines usually only require 4-6 treatments. The number of sessions needed to treat the legs varies, but is usually around 6-8. As a general rule, you will see a 15-30% decrease in the number of hairs in a given area per session.
How Often Are the Treatments Done?
The ideal amount of time to wait between treatments is a little less than one month.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Once you complete your sessions, the results will be permanent. Most of your unwanted hairs will be gone completely, and any that are left behind will be significantly lighter and thinner. To keep their results fresh, most people like to come in for a small touch-up once a year.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes! This technology has been used to remove hair for decades. All of the equipment we use is medical-grade and specially designed for hair removal. The treatment is non-invasive and does not require a break from normal activities following the sessions. Other than sunbathing and heavy exercise, you can resume all of the normal aspects of your routine immediately after you leave the medspa.
Why Is This Treatment Such a Good Option?
Avoid the Irritation Caused by Other Methods
When you choose a hair removal method, you want smooth, beautiful skin. Unfortunately, many of the other options for removing your hair can leave your skin irritated and cause ingrown hairs. Shaving frequently results in razor burn. Waxing can cause your hairs to grow in unusual directions, resulting in red bumps. Depilatory creams contain strong chemicals that might induce an allergic reaction.
With our laser technology, you can end the cycle of hair regrowth and avoid the discomfort of repeatedly treating your skin with these methods. When your skin finally gets a break from the shaving, waxing, and/or creams, it will be healthier and more attractive.
Eliminates Your Need to Buy Products for Hair Removal
Removing your hair at home requires many purchases: razors, shaving cream, wax, waxing strips, etc. After you remove your hair, you might also need products such as moisturizers and soothing oils to treat irritation.
Over the course of a lifetime, these expenses add up. By getting rid of your hair for good with our Diolaze lasers, you can save money, trips to the drugstore, and storage space in your bathroom by eliminating your need for all of these products.
Lets You Enjoy Your Skin
When you use other forms of hair removal, the hair always comes back. After shaving, most people find that they need to shave again after only a few days. Some people even need to shave every day to maintain hairless skin. Hair comes back quickly after shaving because this method only affects hair at the surface of the skin. The part of the hair growing beneath the surface is strong and ready to re-emerge.
Depilatory creams work in much the same way as shaving. The only difference between these two methods is that shaving uses razors to cut the hairs and depilatory creams use chemicals to dissolve them.
Many people schedule waxing appointments in the hopes of keeping the hair away for a longer period of time. While waxing is, in fact, a longer-lasting method than shaving or creams, you might see the hair reappear earlier than you expected. This happens because waxing only affects hairs that are in the anagen growth phase. All of the hairs that are in the other phases of growth will grow to the surface before the hairs that you removed reappear. For this reason, many people end up scheduling more waxing appointments and spending more money than they had planned.
Laser hair removal is a method that goes beyond affecting the hair at the surface and even pulling it out by the roots. It actually targets the source of the hair: the follicle. Think of it like this: while other methods treat the symptoms, our Diolaze lasers treat the cause.
More Comfortable and Safer Than Other Methods
Our Diolaze lasers were developed with your comfort in mind. In the process of shaving, you might cut yourself. Waxing is considered one of the most painful methods of hair removal because it involves pulling your hairs out by the roots. When done incorrectly, it can even pull off the top layer of your skin. By contrast, treating your hair with Diolaze lasers is a safe solution to the problem of unwanted hair.
Can Treat the Aesthetic Issues of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
POS is a hormonal condition that causes some women to have more hair than others. Many of these women wish to reduce the amount of hair that they have. This treatment can help them achieve their aesthetic goals and choose the look they want.
You Will Never Have Hair Removal “Emergencies”
How many times have you had to hop in the shower quickly because you forgot to shave before going to the beach? Have you ever put on a pair of shorts and looked down to realize that you had more hair than you thought? Have you ever needed to change outfits because you were in a situation where you could not shave?
After this treatment, you never need to worry about any of those situations ever again. You can expect to have skin that is smooth, hairless, and healthy all the time. In fact, you might not even think about your hair anymore.
How Can This Treatment Benefit Men?
Men can achieve the same confidence-enhancing results as women by treating areas of their bodies where they would prefer to see less hair. They can also use this treatment to reduce razor burn on their faces and necks. When men shave every day (or even just a few times per week), the accumulated use of the razor very often leads to irritation.
Men who want to improve this situation can either remove all of their hair from these areas or do a short series of sessions to reduce its thickness. For example, in 2-3 sessions, a man can remove 50% of the hair from his face and/or neck. Doing so will significantly cut down on his razor burn.
Get Freedom From Unwanted Hair
If you have hair that you would like to remove, but other methods of hair removal don’t quite cut it (maybe literally), you will be impressed by the efficiency of laser hair removal. This method is a modern, technologically advanced way to get rid of your unwanted hair for good. After only a few sessions, you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin and great results.
