Laser hair removal is the process of slowing down and possibly eventually stopping your body’s hair growth altogether.
Hair removal is a widely practiced grooming process, and although it’s optional, many people choose to do it with shaving or waxing. Shaving cuts the hair off at the surface of the skin, while waxing removes the hair and its root.
Shaving and waxing both require ongoing regular maintenance and don’t target the follicle, which is the pouch that grows each hair in your skin. Health and MedSpa uses the GentleYag® Pro laser to gently target many follicles at once and affect their ability to grow hair.
There is no need for downtime after your hair removal session at Health and MedSpa, and you can continue your normal activities right away. A cooling system with the device ensures that you won’t overheat or feel uncomfortable during the treatment process.
You need multiple sessions with GentleYag Pro to see a significant reduction in the thickness and coarseness of your targeted body hair. Fortunately, the laser system can target many areas or large areas efficiently, including your:
After your initial series of hair removal procedures, you can come back for maintenance as you need it.
GentleYag Pro is a powerful Nd:YAG laser that uses a 1064 nanometer light wavelength to target hair follicles. The laser has several settings, and the Health and MedSpa team may test a patch of skin to find out which setting works best for your skin.
The melanin, or pigment, within your hair absorbs the light and converts it to heat. The heat raises the temperature of the follicle holding the hair and causes damage. Once the follicle is damaged, it may not grow any hair again for a very long time.
You need multiple sessions initially because different follicles are in different phases in the growth cycle when you have your first session.
The duration of hair removal results varies with the individual. For some people, the results are permanent and maintenance is not necessary. The majority of people experience an 80% reduction in hair growth, but you still might need to come in every once in a while for a maintenance treatment at Health and MedSpa.
