What is Laser Hair Removal?
Of the many methods available to remove unwanted body hair, laser hair removal treatments are the only way to permanently reduce or even eliminate hair from certain areas.
If you’re tired of uncomfortable and tedious shaving, or painful waxing sessions, laser hair removal Bloomfield Hills can be a hugely beneficial alternative for achieving smooth skin you aren’t afraid to show off.
What Skin Types Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?
Men and women with pigmented hair of all skin types respond well to laser hair removal with the BareHR.
The Bare HR is the fastest laser hair removal treatment presently. The 810 nm diode is considered to be the gold standard of laser hair removal. With 4800 watts of power, this is the first device to deliver ultra short pulses of energy with optimal temperature to destroy the hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin.
The BareHR also also utilizes The Blend hand piece to deliver multiple wavelengths to achieve laser hair reduction in all skin types, allowing for more efficacious treatments on a wider variety of patients.
How is Laser Hair Removal Performed in Bloomfield Hills?
Ultrasound gel will be applied topically prior to your laser hair removal session. The BareHR laser hand piece is then passed over the skin, targeting the follicles as the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in each follicle. This damage inhibits hair growth, and after multiple sessions, reduces hair in the treatment area.
Treatment can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas being treated in one session. There is no downtime for each laser procedure, meaning you can get right back to your normal routine after a session. Providers also have the option to choose between two proprietary treatment modes-Speed or Comfort. Your provider will discuss which option is best for you.
The Envee Aesthetics team uses the BARE HR™ handheld laser device for laser treatments. This is among the safest and most effective hair removal technology available, and works for all skin types and tones. This laser can be used on many areas of the face and body, and both men and women have had remarkable, long-lasting results from this non-invasive, painless procedure.
Laser Hair Removal Results
Following a laser hair removal session, you should avoid the sun as much as possible and be sure to use sunscreen for at least a couple of weeks. You should also avoid waxing or plucking the treatment area.
Your treated skin may appear red or irritated, though this is temporary. Cold compresses can be used to help alleviate redness and discomfort.
Most patients need a series of treatments, usually 6 within 4-8 week intervals, for the best results. Your personalized treatment plan can be customized to fit your lifestyle and schedule, and may include complementary treatments such as Forever Young BBL for skin pigmentation, or dermaplaning for a facial refresh.
How Should I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
One of the best ways you can prepare for your treatment is to avoid sun exposure prior to the procedure. Exposure to the sun makes your skin much more sensitive to the light energy used in the hair removal process.
