In response to the ever-increasing demand to remove unwanted hair on virtually any body area, the ability to offer superior results to the widest variety of patients is critical. Laser Hair Removal treatment from Adam and Eve Med Spa in Scottsdale Arizona is a non-invasive procedure used to permanently reduce excess unwanted hair from all parts of the body. The selection of laser equipment at our medical center offers a variety of depth and pulses to safely and effectively treat all skin types including tanned skin and the broadest range of hair colors, diameters and depths.
Preliminary setup involves cleansing and shaving the area to be treated. A laser is then directed toward the area and produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Without damaging the surrounding tissue, controlled pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by hair follicles. The heat generated in the process discourages and ultimately destroys the hair and its potential for regrowth. Post-treatment includes a cleanup of the treated area and the application of a sunblock. Large areas such those found on the back, shoulders, abdomen, and legs are rapidly treated. Smaller facial areas like the lip, chin, and beard can be treated in minutes.
Because the laser affects only hair follicles that are in the growth phase, more than one treatment may be necessary. During a consultation, the approximate number of required treatments will be determined based on your particular situation.
Millions of men and women have been successfully treated. Treatment is customized according to hair color, texture, and the area being targeted. Treatment for most hair colors typically yields high levels of success and patient satisfaction. Treatment is effective on all skin types, including dark-skinned individuals of all ethnic origins.
Since there is only a mild sting, the procedure is well tolerated by most patients. A topical numbing cream may be used for the treatment of more sensitive areas.
Side effects are rare. Sensitivity, irritation, and redness may occur at the treatment site but then quickly disappears. Susceptibility to these side effects will be identified during your consultation.
