Laser Hair Removal
SAY GOOD BYE TO UNWANTED HAIR!
Cosmetic Lounge offers laser hair removal of unwanted hair for all areas of the body for qualified candidates, certain skin colors may disqualify a patient.
How it works:
Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction that can eliminate hair anywhere you normally pluck, tweeze, wax or shave. Our laser system emits a beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. Upon absorption, the energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Disabling the follicle prevents new hair growth.
Typically, people experience a 90 percent reduction in hair in the treated areas. It is not effective at removing red, light blonde or gray hair.
What to expect:
The patient is asked to wear eye protection. A small hand piece or “wand” is placed against the skin while it is being cooled as the laser is activated. The hand piece is repositioned and the laser is activated again. The size or the area treated will determine the number of laser activations, or “pulses,” required. Our experts recommend a series of seven treatments spaced six weeks apart.
After your procedure:
Immediately after the treatment the skin will look pink and slightly swollen, similar to sunburn, and raised red bumps will appear. This will subside within 72 hours and the skin will return to normal. Occasionally, a patient will have temporary pigment changes, blistering or scabbing. In the unlikely event of blistering, we recommend keeping the area moist with bacitracin. As with electrolysis, cases of scarring have been reported, but these are extremely rare. A test spot is the best determinant of how each individual’s skin will react.
