Find A Better You
Laser Hair Removal
While laser hair reduction isn’t a new procedure, recent advances in technology now allow for better results, with less irritation to the skin. The state of the art equipment used here at Find a Better You allow for patients to stop in on their lunch break, get a treatment, and head back to work, like any other day. Even better, our laser system uses a specialized dynamic cooling device to protect your skin while it is treated as well as minimize discomfort.
What Are Laser Hair Treatments Like?
Everyone’s treatment plan will be different depending on several factors such as hair color / type, body area, and skin tone. These factors are then used to determine how treatments will be administered to achieve your goals.
Once the treatment begins, a laser is delivered through a small handheld device used by your practitioner. Once the laser light is directed at the skin, the targeted area then absorbs it, and converts it to heat, effectively killing the hair follicle.
We use a specialized system to minimize any discomfort of the procedure. Micro bursts of cryogen are sprayed on the targeted area just milliseconds before the laser fires. This protects the surrounding cells thereby preventing much of the pain in the first place as well as minimizing post treatment redness.
Laser treatments have been around for decades now and are infinitely safer than they were may years ago. At Find a Better You we only use the safest and most effective equipment, operated by our highly trained staff.
Avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior to your procedure. Also, do not bleach, pluck, or wax 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment. If you have recently tanned, wait for the tan to fade.
Initial redness will last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on skin types. Afterwards simply do not bleach or pluck any remaining hair for 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment.
