What is Aesthetic Laser Hair Removal?
One of the most commonly performed aesthetic treatments in the United States, aesthetic laser hair removal treats unwanted body hair at the source and prevents regrowth on a permanent basis.
At Star Laser NY, we now have the LightSheer® INFINITY™ laser, which utilizes two different technologies and offers six different treatment options. Through a handheld piece, beams of highly-concentrated light are passed through the skin and directly into the hair follicles. The light is then absorbed by pigment in the skin, which destroys the hair and disables the follicle, preventing regrowth.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Aesthetic laser hair removal is safe for whole-body use, including sensitive areas. This treatment effectively removes hair from common areas that carry unwanted body hair, such as:
- Upper Lip
- Ball of Chin
- Cheeks and Sideburns
- Front of Neck
- Back of Neck
- Linea Alba
- Full Arms
- Hands and Fingers
- Feet and Toes
- Full Legs
- Full Face
- Half Face
- Back and Shoulders
- Brazilian Bikini
- Lower Arms
- Entire Neck
- Back Shoulders
What are the Benefits of Aesthetic Laser Hair Removal?
Treatment with the LightSheer® INFINITY™ laser offers several benefits in comparison to other hair removal treatments.
This technology is safe for all body areas and hair types Dark, coarse hairs are targeted while leaving surrounding skin undamaged The handpiece of the LightSheer® INFINITY™ can adjust to three different sizes, allowing for precision. Aesthetic laser hair removal is fast, taking mere seconds to treat each area. ChillTip™ contact cooling technology eliminates patient discomfort candidate
How Do I Prepare for Aesthetic Laser Hair Removal?
In preparation for an aesthetic laser hair removal treatment, you will be advised to shave (or use depilatory creams) (exception: facial hair, not to pluck or wax the areas you are treating for about six weeks, as this can affect the laser’s ability to effectively target hair follicles.
Sunscreen should be worn before and after treatment. Prolonged sun exposure can not only result in the treatment being less effective, it can also increase the risk of side effects afterward.
How Long Will My Results Last?
One laser hair removal session will remove your hair in treated areas, but multiple sessions may be required before hair follicles are permanently disabled. A personalized treatment plan will be created during your consultation.
Are There Any Side Effects?
While some slight redness is common following aesthetic laser hair removal, it will quickly subside. Advances in this technology have eliminated discomfort not only during the procedure but afterward as well. Any additional risks associated with this procedure will be discussed with you during your consultation.
