Patient Instructions for Laser Hair Removal


HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TREATMENTS ? 
Pre-Treatment 

  1. The treatment area needs to be shaved to skin level , although a days hair growth may be necessary and helpful so that the area that requires treatment is easily recognizable.
  2. You must avoid waxing, plucking, threading or electrolysis of the hair for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. The laser needs the hair at skin level in order to effectively destroy the hair follicle.
  3. Avoid the sun exposure for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. The GentleLASE® or ELOS T Aurora will work on most skin types, but the lighter you can allow your skin to get, the better and safer your skin is likely to be. The lighter skin allows more energy to be delivered to the target. A “skin” bleaching cream such as Hydroquinone may be started 4-6 weeks before treatment in order optimize results.
  4. Be sure that the treatment area is fully washed off and has no makeup, medication etc.
  5. Be certain that you are not on medications such as Accutane, Retin-A, Gold Therapy etc, at present or within the past 6 months. These medications, and several others, can make your skin susceptible to damage from the laser. If in doubt, please ask us for a list of the said medications.
  6. Laser treatments for hair are not recommended if you are pregnant.

HOW TO CARE AND WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENTS ?

 Post-TreatmentImage 
  1. Avoid bathing or washing with very hot water, Use tepid water. Wash gently. Keep the area clean.
  2. Do not shave the treated area for at least 4 days after treatment.
  3. Avoid any irritating medications or chemicals. Examples of these are Retin-A, Benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or astringents.
  4. Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 weeks after treatment. Protect the area with a sunscreen of higher than 30 SPF or else the skin may develop hyper-pigmentation /hypo-pigmentation marks.
  5. The treated area may become pink, red, inflamed, or even blistered within 30 minutes and in rare instances last several hours to several days. Regular application of ice, cooling gels, Hydrocortisone or Neosporin is important for relief.
  6. Do not wax, pluck, thread or use depilatories for the hair that grows back.
  7. After laser treatment, hair may continue to grow out as if it were never treated. Typically this will occur for about 2-3 weeks and then those treated hair will simply begin to fall out.
  8. Generally it is best to wait 4-6 weeks between treatments. There is no advantage to scheduling your visits closer together even if you do not see immediate results. The laser only targets hair in the growth phase. The next growth phase is generally in 4-6 weeks.

Here Are a Number of Advantages of Laser Hair Removal at LUMIERE:

EFFECTIVENESS: 
The lasers we use are FDA approved and have been evaluated as the most effective in peer-reviewed medical journals. These sophisticated lasers target the root of the hair so specifically that they not only eliminate very dark and coarse hair, but are also the most effective lasers for the removal of fine hair and even hair with a light brown root.

AFFORDABILITY:
Our laser performs treatments at a very high speed while offering complete coverage, therefore enabling us to charge less per treatment. We never insist on paying for packages up front, our clients pay per treatment. We are confident that our lasers’ great results will bring our clients back for completion and follow up treatments.

HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS:
The laser targets the darkness of the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. Since melanin is only produced in the growth phase of the hair, the laser must target the hair follicle during this cycle. At any given time, 20-40% of the hair in a particular area may be in a growth phase. Therefore, more than one treatment needs to be scheduled, preferably at 6-8 week intervals. With multiple treatments we can ensure that all hair follicles are being disabled.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL BE NEEDED:
Laser treatment impairs the growth of hair follicles when they are in the growth cycle at the time of treatment. Unfortunately, not all hair follicles are at this stage at the same time. Therefore, for effective permanent hair removal, most people require approximately four to five treatments to achieve the desired results. The number of sessions also depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin.

Laser Skin Tightening Treatment Virginia | Leg and Facial Vein Removal | Skin Tightening Virginia


The Candela Corporation announced that its GentleYAG laser now offers consumers “skin tightening” treatments adding to the laser’s current applications; leg and facial vein removal. The GentleYAG “tightens” by heating the underlying layers in the skin and forming new collagen resulting in smoother, younger looking skin. The GentleYAG’s patented epidermal cooling system, the Dynamic Cooling Device , protects the skin with every laser pulse allowing for quick results.

“Candela’s GentleYAG Skin Tightening laser is an exceptional new way to get rid of wrinkles and tighten skin”, said Dr. Taylor. “The patients I have treated with the GentleYAG are overwhelmingly happy with the results.” Taylor continued, “Because it is so quick and results in little redness, patients can receive a skin tightening treatment during their lunch break and their co-workers wouldn’t even notice.”

HOW DOES THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT WORK?

The laser creates a beam of high intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Candela’s Patented Dyanamed Cooling Device technology protects the upper layers of the skin with a cooling burst of cryogen.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT?

Your skin should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight or tanning booth light for 2 weeks prior to treatment.

DOES THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT HURT?

There is some discomfort with each laser pulse, best described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. The discomfort resolves in several seconds. Topical anesthetics are available which are applied to the skin prior to the skin tightening procedure.

HOW MANY LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of the Collagen Stimulating treatments can vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated. The number of treatment usually recommended is 4-6. You will begin to see results prior to finishing the series of treatments.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING PROCEDURE?

Normal side effects may include redness and swelling which will last for 24-48 hours. Rare side effects include pigmentation changes, blistering and bruising. These are very, very rare and generally only last a few days.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT?

Cool compress and ice will be applied during and after your treatment. You can expect some redness and swelling which will dissipate in a few hours to 48 hours. Your face may feel warm or feel like you have a sunburn for a few hours.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE AFTER THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT?

You should prevent sun exposure for a week following treatment. Apply a sunblock (SPF 30 or above) is recommended. Do not scrub the face in the first few days following treatment. Do not use any glycolic or alpha-hydroxy acid products following treatment. Treat your skin gently as if you had sunburn.
