Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal treatment is a procedure used to remove unwanted hair. The light source targets and destroys the hair follicles in the skin, disrupting hair growth. Nine Elms Clinic introduces Cynosure ELITE PLUS Laser which is a high-powered, dual wave-length system which delivers energy faster for quicker and effective results on all skin types.
What is it used to treat?
To remove unwanted hair in a quick and easy cosmetic procedure with long lasting results.
Redness and irritation are the most common side effects after a laser hair removal treatment due to the body reacting to the laser. This should wear off within 48 hours.
How it works?
The secret lies in the technology. Cynosure’s laser hair removal treatments target and destroy the hair cells responsible for hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is smooth, hair-free skin that lasts!
Treatment areas include face, underarms, arms, legs, back, bikini, chest, and more!
Treatments are virtually painless and will vary patient to patient. Patients describe a range of sensations during treatment from tingling to the snapping of a rubber band.
Treatments can take from just 5-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended for optimal results but, every patient is different. Work with your provider to develop a plan that is right for you!
Our hair naturally grows in 3 different stages. All our hair is not in the same stage at the same time, so when an area is treated only a percentage of hair follicles will be affected. Therefore, to effectively reduce your unwanted hair, multiple treatments are necessary.
This treatment is safe for all skin types, including light and dark skin and most hair colors. Work with your provider to determine best treatment options for you!
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present. In addition, you may also see a decrease in stubble, rashes and ingrown hairs!
