During your laser hair removal session, your aesthetic specialist glides the Candela handheld laser device over your treatment area. Each pulse of light gently targets and destroys hair follicles. While some hair falls out during your treatment, it takes time for most treated hair to shed.
Over the following weeks, treated hair gradually starts to fall out on its own. Gently exfoliating your skin can minimize issues with bumps, and help speed up the shedding process. When and if the hair grows back again, it appears lighter and thinner. Eventually, after several treatments, treated hair should stop growing back all together.
The ideal candidates for laser hair removal have traditionally included men and women who have fair skin and dark hair follicles. That was because the laser is attracted to dark pigments in hair follicles.
However, with advancements in laser technology, the requirements have expanded. With the revolutionary Candela system, you may qualify for treatment, even if you have darker skin or lighter hair. The powerful Candela 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser is effective for all skin types and hair colors.
Most men and women notice a reduction in hair within a week or two after their first appointment. Depending on the color and coarseness of your hair, you may need up to six sessions or more to achieve optimal results.
While laser hair removal is the only permanent solution available for smooth skin, occasionally, some hair does start to grow back. This typically stems from new hair growth due to hormonal changes. If you start noticing a few hairs after your treatment is complete, the team at Ariba Medical Spa can schedule a touch-up visit to resolve this issue.
Not at all. Dr. Mirza and his team want your laser hair removal treatment to be as quick and painless as possible. If needed, they have topical numbing cream to minimize your discomfort in sensitive areas.
Plus, Candela’s patented large spot delivery system in the GentleMax Pro laser is known to be the fastest dual wavelength hair removal laser available. Because the system covers a large area in a short amount of time, you will be in and out of the office in no time.
