Laser Hair Removal
Do you live in the Saint Louis area and get sick of shaving multiple times a week? While laser hair removal 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. We can treat anyone with our great GentleMax Pro Laser from Candela. 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.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Laser hair removal is not painful, you can feel a little discomfort but we also have numbing cream if needed. After you get laser hair removal, there is no pain. 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.
How much does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
One of the most important questions to ask, is about laser hair removal cost. We use the same laser as the "big name companies" without the big price tag that comes with it, and our laser technicians are certified as well. At Find A Better You, we have a great deal right now that includes: removing hair from 3 different areas for only $99 a month for however many months you want. This offer won't last forever so get it while you can!
How many treatments does it take?
Usually it take 6-8 treatments to fully go away. The reason it take more than one is because the hair growth cycle is in four stages. And you can only go one stage at a time, going deeper until you reach the bottom. Here's a great explanation of the process.
Where can I have Laser Hair Removal Done?
Anywhere you have hair at, we can remove it for 6-12 months! And if the hair comes back, it's a lot lighter and thinner; so it's harder to see. That includes your: face, chin, arms, armpits, legs, and even Brazilian.
Can I just use a Home Hair Removal instead?
The home use lasers you see on the internet are not safe. They are actually IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which if not used correctly can: burn retinas, and they remove you hair like a razor and come back the same as a razor. Compare that time to 6-12 months and theres no comparison. Anyone that touches a laser here is Laser Certified. Whoever does your laser hair removal treatment, ask them if they are certified. And when done by a professional it is completely safe, it's not worth the risk or the lack of results from the home IPL lasers.
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.
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.
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.
