Treat Unwanted Hair. Reduce Hair Growth. Permanent Hair Reduction.
At Renew + Refresh Medical spa we treat all of our laser hair removal patients with LightSheer Diode Laser. LightSheer uses clinically proven diode laser technology to permanently remove unwanted hair, comfortably and effectively. Diode lasers work by using a single wavelength of light that has a high abruption rate in melanin (a dark brown to black pigment occurring in the hair). As the melanin heats up it destroys the root and blood flow to the follicle disabling the hair growth permanently.
What to Expect
Before arriving to your treatment, shave the area that will be treated. You need to ensure you have not had sun exposure or a tan of any kind, including self tanner. We want to ensure the laser is seeking the melanin in your hair follicle and not at the surface of your skin.
Immediately after your treatment your skin may be red and warm, similar to that of a mild sun exposure. With the exception of SPF sunscreen, keep the skin clean of lotions and/or creams for 24 hours after treatment. Avoid rigorous exercise, excessive sweating, hot tubs or hot baths for 24 hours. Over the next 7-10 days you will notice your hair will grow in the normal growth process at which time it will shed itself and you will be left with smooth, hair free skin.
Cycle of Hair Growth
We recommend 4-6 treatments of laser hair removal for permanent reduction in hair growth depending on your hair type and overall goal. Why? The hair goes through 4 stages of growth: anagen, catagen, telogen, and return to anagen. Laser hair removal only destroys follicles in the anagen phase. Since we cannot see what stage each hair follicle is in we schedule appointments based on typical hair growth patterns. We want to ensure we capture the hair follicle in its beginning stage to prevent future growth. It is not uncommon for hair to grow back “patchy” as it finds different hairs in different stages of hair growth. You will see a great reduction of hair growth in just one treatment!
*It is important to note that hormonal changes such as pregnancy & menopause can regenerate hair to the anagen phase.
Pretty much anywhere that grows hair can be lasered, what we cannot do is in the entry/exit flesh of the body otherwise known as the mucus membranes.
There is some discomfort the first few treatments, depending upon the area, but it is manageable. During a consultation we can discuss various means to help with pain management including cold air. Most people find laser significantly easier than waxing.
We don’t recommend it, reason being is that we want the hair to grow so that it is in the anagen phase, waxing pulls the hair from the follicle which prevents the laser from destroying that follicle. For ideal results we recommend 4 weeks between your last wax and next laser procedure.
Yes! This is actually the best solution for people who want to thin out pubic hair but not necessarily have it fully gone. Or for men who want to reduce and thin the hair on their arms, legs, chest, etc. Usually in this case only one or two treatments is required, worried about patches? We can address that in a consult where we can best understand your individual hair growth pattern.
