What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is an innovative aesthetic treatment that uses laser energy to heat and damage your hair follicles to reduce and eliminate body hair growth. Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics offers laser hair removal services using the cutting edge Palomar Icon equipment developed by the aesthetic laser specialists at CynoSure®.
You can have laser hair removal almost anywhere on your body, including your:
Feet and toes
Most patients begin with a series of six laser hair removal treatments with about six weeks between appointments. Depending on your hair and skin, you might need more treatments to achieve your desired results.
Hormonal changes and other factors can trigger new hair growth, so you might need additional touch-up treatments from time to time.
What to Expect During
When you come in for your Alma Soprano laser hair removal,
your provider will first shave the hair on the treatment area. This is
an important step during the process, to avoid heating the hair
on the surface on the skin, as that could cause skin damage.
After the surface hair has been shaved off, a special gel will
be applied to the skin, which will help keep the skin cool and
allow your provider to move the laser device on the treatment
area more easily. Before the actual laser treatment starts, your
provider will give you protective eyewear, and will then begin gently moving the laser across the treatment area. It is common to hear a beeping sound during this process, which indicates the laser has been turned on. The duration of the treatment session will depend on the size of the treatment area. Because of the specialized cooling technology, patients feel virtually no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Of course, this will vary from patient to patient, based on individual sensitivities. The typical laser hair removal patient will need 5-8 treatment sessions, spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart, to target all of the hair follicles in the treatment area. Multiple treatment sessions are necessary because hair on the body grows in cycles, and while some follicles may be growing hair, others may be in a resting phase. Because the laser targets melanin in the hair, the follicle must be in a growth phase in order to be targeted effectively.
How the Alma Soprano Ice works:
We use the newest technology, Alma Soprano Ice.
The Alma Soprano removes unwanted hair by targeting the hair follicle. The laser is able to achieve this by targeting the melanin within the hair follicle and heating it up to the point of damage. Another aspect of Alma Soprano that is of benefit to patients is that the laser is typically safe for all skin types. Many earlier laser technologies for hair removal can cause skin discoloration, especially in patients with darker skin tones. However, because of the unique technology behind the Alma Soprano, the hair removal treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed any time of year.
Alma Soprano was designed specifically for laser hair removal. This advanced laser can yield favorable outcomes on virtually any part of the body. For example, providers have used this Alma laser to help patients get rid of hair on the legs, chest, arms, back, bikini area, and arm pits, among others.
