Laser Hair Removal service in New York City is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that permanently removes unwanted facial and body hair. Nd: YAG and Alexandrite wavelengths emit energy in the form of light onto the skin for a carefully tailored treatment that is fast, effective, and comfortable.
Our technology harnesses the power of two wavelengths for greater effectiveness for hair-free skin. It also has a square laser spot, which ensures that every inch of skin being treated is protected from harm during treatment. Upon absorption of this energy by the hair, the melanin in the hair transforms into heat, which damages the hair follicles and hinders future hair growth.
- Ideal for all skin types, even tanned skin
- Sessions are faster and fewer
- Long-lasting results
What this means for you?
The 755nm wavelength is great at treating lighter skin, and the 1064nm is great for darker skin, but it’s not one size fits all. Blending these wavelengths together in the correct amounts for your skin type provides a perfectly customized treatment.
A large square shape spot size helps your provider line up the treatment areas on your body. You do not have to worry about spots missed this way.
The Dual Cooling System (DCS) combines cooled air and a cooled tip to protect your skin and ensure a very comfortable treatment.
When Will I See Results?
Expect to see 15-20% reduction of hair on the treated area after just one session. Lasers are effective when hair is at an early growth stage. Because not all hairs will be at the same stage at the same time, you’ll need 6-10 multiple treatments to permanently remove the unwanted hair. Your provider will advise you on the number required.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
How the area will look right after treatment varies from person to person. You may have some redness and swelling around hair follicles straight after. In the following weeks you will notice less hair growth as you progress through the course of your treatments, so the key is to be patient.
Is it Right For Me?
Our laser hair removal is generally suitable for all skin tones – even tanned skin – and for all body areas and types or hair. However, laser hair removal may not be right for everyone and does carry some risks.
Laser hair removal isn’t suitable if you have an active infection or inflammation; viral, fungal, or bacterial disease; active cold sore; or open wound or abrasion in the area you want to treat. Risks may include changes to skin pigmentation and texture.
