Laser hair reduction is a noninvasive method of removing unwanted hair from the face, arms, legs, back, chest, and the bikini area. It produces long-lasting results and is currently the number one aesthetic laser procedure next to Botox. According to a report by American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, laser hair removal is on the rise, with an increase of nearly 30% from 2013.
Laser Hair Removal Patch tests are a necessary part of the assessment stage prior to your full treatment. The patch test provides information to both you and I, your laser specialist. A patch test is the use of the laser carried out on a small area of skin, just as it will be in your full treatments.
Its main purpose is to determine the best laser to use and what precise grade of laser energy is required to achieve the best results for your skin and hair type. This is because each laser has its specialities, lighter skin, darker skin, fine hair and so on. But within each laser there are also numerous settings that can be adjusted to give you the most effective treatment. As needed more than one patch tests could be tried using different lasers to ensure we are using the best laser for you.
Our clinician evaluates your general health and any pre-existing health condition or risk factors and takes photographs before the procedure begins. The next step involves the application of numbing cream to the treatment site.
Using the advanced Cynosure Elite Plus laser system, the practitioner destroys the hair follicles in the treatment areas by the focused beam of light of the latest laser system. You might momentarily experience a slight sting-like sensation during the procedure. The treatment takes minutes for smaller areas and may require half an hour for larger areas.
Following the procedure, there might be slight swelling with a mild sunburn-like sensation that resolves by itself. It typically takes several hair removal sessions to affect all your unwanted hair.
Inglewood Laser and Aesthetics Plus offers Laser hair removal for all skin types and for men and women of all ethnicities .
Although risk are low, some of the hair follicles may be resistant to laser hair removal and may regrow after the procedure. You may also observe mild redness and swelling at the base of the follicles. Some patients, especially with a darker skin tone, may notice a pigment change. There may be temporary blistering, crusting, scarring, or other changes in skin texture.
Immediately after the procedure, you may need to apply ice to the treated area. Avoid sun exposure, and use sunscreen between treatments and after the follow-ups.
