It depends on your skin condition and what your goals are. We will always discuss your treatment plan and a home care regimen prior to your treatment. We recommend 4 – 6 treatments in order to get a better outcome.
When can I be exposed to direct UV light?gribal2017-04-21T23:07:44+00:00
This always depends on the skin condition. We recommend to get the treatment usually 2-3 weeks apart and as a maintenance once every 6 weeks. Keep in mind that the treatment can be also alternated with different advanced corrective facials.
Am I a good candidate?gribal2017-04-21T23:07:00+00:00
The best candidate is someone who has discoloration (hyperpigmentation) or sensitivity (also, rosacea prone skin). Intense Pulse Lights (IPL) target red blood vessels (hemoglobin), as well as a different kind of pigmentation (melanin), thus making skin look more healthy and evened out (complexion). As a good side effect, it helps to trigger collagen and elastin production.
Will LHR affect any of my organs? What could be a complication?gribal2017-04-21T23:03:53+00:00
No, there isn’t any damage to any organs or tissue of the human body. Also, we show all of our clients the pre- and post- care instructions, in order to prevent any possible complications. During your initial consultation, we always discuss contraindications that will allow you to see if you can receive treatments or not. With that said, you are in good hands.
How many weeks do I have to wait in between LHR sessions?gribal2017-04-21T23:03:47+00:00
Typically one cycle takes 4-6 weeks; there are different stages of hair growth. Each stand of the human body is at its own stage of development. In order to target early active hair follicles, we need to space those sessions every 4-6 weeks apart.
Is LHR a permanent solution or not?gribal2017-04-21T23:03:35+00:00
It’s a semi permanent to permanent. Also, our bodies may develop new hair follicles down the road. This is why we recommend touch ups from time to time in order to maintain silky smooth skin. Also, due to hormone fluctuations, females can experience more hair growth throughout their life.
Am I a good candidate for LHR?gribal2017-04-21T23:03:30+00:00
The best candidate for laser hair removal is someone with light skin and dark coarse hair. However, our devise allows us to treat from 1-6 Fitzpatrick skin types.
Please note that hair without any pigment – blond, gray or white (sometimes red) cannot be treated.
How does the LHR work?gribal2017-04-25T21:52:39+00:00
Imagine a strong beam of light that is specifically aimed at the hair. During the process, the light attracts the pigment of the hair, which ultimately damages the hair follicle. This prevents future hair growth for months and in some cases even years.
