For people who are tired of shaving, tweezing, and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal has become the preferred option and The Cynosure Laser offers a beautiful solution. Laser therapy provides a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair with great results.
How does Cynosure Laser Hair removal work?
During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. Lasers are set at specific wavelengths that will selectively target hair follicles. The laser applies precisely controlled pulses of energy reaching into the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
How many treatments can I expect?
The number of laser treatments depends on the location and your hair. Laser Hair Removal must be done in several treatments because the laser can only kill hair that is actively growing. Treatments for the face and neck every 4-6 weeks, treatments for the Back, chest, bikini area and underarms every 6-8 weeks, and legs require treatments every 8-10 weeks apart. On average you can expect 6-8 sessions.
What happens after Laser Hair Removal?
Your skin will be red and bumpy for an average of 1-3 hours and can last up to 24 hours after the laser hair removal treatment. After your treatment, some hairs will expel immediately. Others will take 1-2 weeks to fall out. New hairs begin to grow as the next group of hairs move into the active growth cycle. Re-growth will possibly be lighter, finer and/or scattered.
