Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Laser hair removal uses light to convert into energy and target hair pigment. It does not target skin pigment. The purpose is to eliminate hair follicles. The Epilaze Laser is FDA Cleared for permanent hair reduction on all skin types including light, fair-skinned, olive skin and African American skin. The Epilaze can remove/reduce dark coarse hair and dark fine hair. Blonde, white and Grey hair cannot be treated. What Can I Expect During the Treatment?  The Epilaze features built-in contact cooling that cools the treatment area before, during and after the treatment. Therefore, most patients experience little to no discomfort during the treatment. However, depending on the thickness of the hair, some patients may experience a warm sting as the laser energy penetrates into the hair follicle. What Areas on the Body Can Be Treated ? The Epilaze laser can quickly, safely and effectively remove and reduce unwanted body hairs on all areas of the body including the face, chin, upper lip, back, chest, legs and bikini area. How Many Treatments are Required ? Hair follicles in the "growth stage" respond to laser hair removal. Not all follicles are active at the same time. To achieve the maximum result most patients normally require 3-8 treatment sessions that spread out over a number of weeks. Pre-Treatment Hair Removal Instructions Before laser hair removal, avoid plucking, waxing, or any other hair removal method that pulls hair from the root. Laser hair removal needs hair in the follicle. The laser targets the hair's pigment called melanin. The hair must be in its anagen, or active, growth phase. Do Not Tan - You should also avoid Sun exposure in the 4-6 weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatment. Tanned skin hasextra melanin, Which attracts laser energy. Do Not Moisturize - Right before your laser hair removal treatment, avoid applying any lotion, sunscreen. Shave - Shave 1-3 days before your Session. The idea is to have a nice, close shave, so that there is no hair outside the skin. It is best to have just enough hair to be visible so your technician knows what is to be treated.
