With the advancement in technology, we are seeing a proportional increase in the ability to administer better and more efficient aging and beauty treatments worldwide. In the past, majority turned to waxing, tweezing, shaving, and hair removal creams to remove unwanted hair; all temporary measures, and some with painful and inefficient side-effects, resulting in no real admirable alternative. That is, until modern laser hair removal machines came into the market, forever changing the way women and men perceive their hair removal options. Here, we use the most modern and virtually painless device, Soprano XL to remove unwanted hair in a series of treatments.
Laser Hair Removal works by emitting energy photons directly to the hair follicles, whereby, damaging and destroying the hair follicles via heat administered to the area, but not damaging the epidermis or surrounding area. Our medical professionals apply a gel over the target area and subsequently administer a series of continuous laser beams (of a specified wavelength) to inhibit future hair growth.
While laser hair removal is effective in reducing the amount of active hair follicles, permanent hair reduction is not guaranteed and results may vary depending on the individual. However, impressive results are seen (70-90% hair reduction) in individuals who come in continuously for a series of 6-8 sessions. The reason for this is that laser hair removal targets hair follicles in their active (anagen phase) and each session is designed to target the subsequent anagen phase, requiring each session to be 5-6 weeks apart for maximum results. Patients will notice hair growing, but these are no longer active hair cells, and the root is pushing the damaged hair out; in fact, the hair can be removed from its root with minimal resistance.
