Laser Hair Removal:
FAQ’s...

Q.) Why does it usually take a minimum of 5 treatments to get rid of unwanted hair?

A.) Hair grows out of follicles. In order to cause permanent hair reduction, the follicles must be destroyed. When we treat you, the hair in the follicles helps transmit the light and heat to the follicle, enabling it to be destroyed. Not every follicle has a hair in it at all times. The follicles grow hair in cycles. At any given time only 20-30% of the follicles have a growing hair (scalp follicles are the exception--about 85-90% of scalp follicles have a growing hair). Without a hair in the follicle, the treatment may not affect the follicle. Even more important, surrounding each hair shaft there are groups of colorless cells called stem cells. These stem cells do not absorb any light. Furthermore, stem cells can grow a new follicle! Stem cells can only be destroyed when they are surrounding a pigmented hair shaft. It takes about six to eight weeks for each batch of new hairs to grow out of the follicles. With each treatment, another 20-30% of the follicles and stem cells will be injured or destroyed. It takes at least five treatments to injure or destroy most of the follicles.

Laser Hair Removal Wellington

Wellington Florida

If you live in the Wellington area, and you are tired of shaving, waxing, plucking, stringing etc., we can help. There are many places that offer Permanent Hair Reduction and Laser Hair Removal. Not all of the treatments are the same. Lasers are not all the same. Before you start your treatment, there is some information about Permanent Hair Reduction and Laser Hair Removal that you need to know. Here is what you should  know when you are shopping...

1) We want you to shave the area to be treated immediately before your treatment. The skin should be as bare as possible, but not plucked or waxed. Depilatory cream can be used if you do not like to shave. Some places that use older equipment ask you to come in with a few days of hair growth. We use the most powerful equipment in the word, the Starlux 500, so that you can stay bare all the time, even on the day you get treated.

2) Our equipment is so powerful that it can chill the skin at the very same moment that the hair follicles are being destroyed. This makes your treatment much more comfortable. For very delicate treatments such as the Brazilian Bikini we also offer a variety of topical anesthetics. Most of the time, our clients don't feel they need any anesthetic at all.

3) Clients with light colored skin and dark hair are the easiest to treat. The industry standard for clients with light colored skin and dark hair is that 5 treatments should produce a 60-90% reduction in hair. 100% hair reduction may take more than 5 treatments. Hair reduction includes turning dark hair into light hair, thick hair shafts becoming thin hair shafts and hair shafts that fall out and do not re-grow. The "ideal patient" would be an albino with black hair!

4) We have special equipment that can treat clients with dark skin or light hair. We can also treat red and blond hair. The darker the skin or the lighter the hair, the more treatments will be required. On average, clients with dark skin or light hair will take about 8 treatments to get the same results that clients with light skin and dark hair would get with 5 treatments.

5) White and gray hair can not be treated with a laser. Dark skin with light hair (very rare) can not be treated with a laser. Both of these conditions require electrolysis. Red and blond hair may be treatable. Before starting laser hair removal on red hair or blond hair, we will test the hair to make sure that there is enough pigment in the hair to allow the laser hair removal to work.

6) Our prices for Permanent Hair Reduction and Laser Hair Removal are based on the area of the body that needs treatment. For smaller areas such as the face, underarms, bikini, fingers and toes we create package prices for each client that are based on the number of treatments and the number of areas you wish to have treated. For larger areas such as arms, legs, chest and back we charge by the amount of time it will take to treat you. In this way you only pay for the service you actually need to perform your laser hair removal in Wellington.
