This Does Not Replace A Consultation Regarding Laser Hair Removal!

If you have ever thought about receiving laser hair removal treatments, now is the time. Here are specific tips to prepare for laser hair removal.

1. It is necessary for you to have one or two days hair growth so that the areas that require treatment are easily recognizable. If not, it may be difficult to pinpoint all areas needing treatment. Your technician will need to shave the hair to skin level with a razor as necessary.

 

2. For hair removal on the face, please do not use (or make sure you wash off all) makeup prior to treatment.

 

 

3. If you are currently on the medication Accutane , Gold Therapy, any drug that causes a reaction to sunlight or have been in the past 6 months, please let us know. This medication can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser.

 

4. Generally, it is best to wait 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. There is no advantage to scheduling your visits closer together even if you do not see immediate results. The laser only targets hair in the growth phase. The next growth phase will be in 4 to 6 weeks.

Skin Care Myth

Myth:

Shaving soft, fine vellus hair turns it to coarse, dark terminal hair.

 

Fact:

False. Numerous studies  dating back to the 1920’s show that shaving will not make hair grow back thicker, stronger, longer or faster. When a fine vellous hair is shaved with a razor, it grows back with a blunt edge. This can make the hair appear thicker and coarser – but it is not. Hormonal changes, genetics, some medical conditions and certain medications are typically responsible for turning fine, pale vellous hairs (also known as “peach fuzz”) into coarser, pigmented terminal hairs. Once a hair has been transformed into a terminal hair, it is likely to stay that way.

Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for women with fine (otherwise known as vellus) hair all over their faces.

Dermaplaning: The Quickest Way to Get The Most Beautiful Face Ever

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, stainless steel blade for the removal of dead skin cells as well as all of the “fuzz” (fine facial hair).

It immediately rejuvenates the skin and is highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple and vibrant.

It also increases penetration of active ingredients in professional treatments and home care products.

 

Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for women with fine (otherwise known as vellus) hair all over their faces.

The growth of this type of hair, which can appear like a light fuzz on the face, can make the application of make-up difficult and occurs for many women as they undergo menopause and experience hormonal changes.  Removing this hair with laser treatments is not a viable option for many since the hair can be white or blonde and the light then cannot capture it for effective hair removal.
