Gone are the days of painful hair removal, where it continues to grow back.
A safe, more effective, and less painful way to remove unwanted hair is laser hair removal using the Cynosure system.
At Salcedo Medical Center and Vein Institute, we use the Cynosure laser hair removal treatments, which are effective at eliminating hair in any target area and safe for all skin types. Our clients can expect to see a decline in the thickness of the hair as well as an overall decrease in the amount of hair that grows back. One of the most prominent effects of laser hair removal is how the skin looks after, you will notice overall smoother skin. With laser removal, you remove the unpleasantries associated with more traditional methods (such as shaving or waxing); no more stubble, rashes, or ingrown hairs.
Cynosure’s laser hair removal treatments work by actually targeting the very hair cells in the area. The laser has the ability to penetrate below the surface of the skin and create energy which, over time, damages the hair follicles, preventing regrowth. The surrounding skin is unharmed, and the target area becomes smoother and hair-free.
Because hair grows in a number of stages, we want to ensure we treat all the hair follicles in every stage (all our hair is never in the same stage of regrowth). As such, with each treatment, we cannot simply get every hair follicle in the optimal stage. Therefore, we recommend a series of treatments for the best results.
Generally, after 6 treatments clients notice a change in hair regrowth.
Common treatment areas include the face, underarms, legs, bikini area, back, and chest. However, the laser is safe to use in most areas.
Our patients can expect to feel at ease. The laser itself doesn’t hurt, in fact, most clients describe it has slightly warm and painless. We do ensure that our patients are comfortable and, if needed, we use a cooling gel to prevent discomfort.
After the treatment, our patients are able to return to their daily activities. We recommend not exposing the newly treated area directly to sunlight or hot water right after.
Because everyone is different, we recommend an in-person consultation, here at Salcedo Medical Center and Vein Institute, where we can evaluate the target areas and come up with a plan that works best for you. Book your consultation today to find out if laser hair removal is a good option for you.
