Messy, painful and ineffective hair removal methods are now a thing of the past. Today, pulsed light with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treats unwanted hair with quick and safe bursts of light. Involving no downtime, you can continue with most of your regular activities immediately after your Laser Hair Removal treatment. Best of all, this non-invasive and effective approach yields permanent hair reduction and long-term hair removal- anywhere on the body.
While pain tolerance is different for everyone, most people tolerate Laser Hair Removal well. Describing the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. We use a cooling machine with treatment help keep you as comfortable as possible.
All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. As the Laser Hair Removal pulsed light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment, resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated. For this reason, treatment must be repeated every 6-8 weeks for a series of 6-10 treatments depending on the person and the area.
Those with a higher Fitzpatrick score or those with a tan are not a good candidate for the Alma Laser. The laser will not be able to treat blonde, red, white or grey hair as it only picks up on darker pigment. For best results, Laser Hair Removal treatments are customized according to skin color, hair texture and body site. We recommend a complimentary consultation to be sure you are a candidate for this treatment.
