At Clear Skin Victoria, we offer three Cutera Laser Hair Removal platforms to offer safe, effective and comfortable laser hair removal treatments for all skin types on any area of the face or body with unwanted dark hair. Laser hair removal emits a concentrated wavelength of laser energy absorbed by the targeted pigment in the hair follicle. The follicle is effectively destroyed, preventing future hair growth. Because hair grows in cycles, several treatment sessions are required for permanent hair reduction.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Most areas require six treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated, hormones and your hair’s growth cycle. Not all hairs actively grow simultaneously and undergo three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the treatment time. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all hair follicles in a given area.
Before any laser hair removal treatment, the area must be thoroughly shaved and grooming treatments that remove hair follicles, such as tweezing and waxing, be avoided. The hair slowly falls out for up to two weeks post-treatment and will remain clear until the next growth phase begins. Some patients need to exfoliate the treatment area to help encourage the hair to fall out and prevent irritation.
The excel HR™ Laser has now become the gold standard in medical-grade laser hair removal and permanently reduces unwanted hair growth on all skin types. The large pre-cooled treatment window allows for additional comfort and efficient treatments.
The ProWave LX™ hair removal system delivers a specially tailored light source for permanent hair reduction. This efficient hair removal platform treats a wide range of skin types from Fitzpatrick 1-3. An additional patient benefit is the ability of the handpiece to treat large areas such as full legs and backs – quickly and safely.
The truPulse™ Nd: YAG Laser is the best device for darker skin types, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling system allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
