Laser hair removal uses technology in which a beam of light is applied to unwanted hair on various parts of the body. This light is a specific wavelength that targets the melanin—the pigment in the hair that gives it color—in the hair follicle. When the light enters the follicle, it is converted to heat energy that inactivates the follicle, preventing the hair from growing again.
Diode lasers use a single wavelength of light that has a high abruption rate in melanin. Diode lasers deliver high frequency, low fluence pulses and can be safely used on all skin types. Often referred to as the gold standard in hair removal, the Spectrum 810nm Diode laser is highly reliable, highly effective for terminal hair reduction, and is safe for all skin types due to their longer wavelength and deeper penetration.
The 810nm Diode has built-in contact cooling to protect the surface of the skin, making the treatment a comfortable, pain-free experience for patients!
Please shave 1 day before treatment
Do not wax, thread, or tweeze for 2-4 weeks prior treatment
Do not tan for 2-4 weeks before treatment
Remove all makeup, lotion, and deodorant
Avoid sun exposure for approximately 4 weeks prior to treatment, as tanned skin has extra melanin (pigment) which attracts laser energy from targeting the hair follicle
There is no downtime associated with this treatment and patients may resume their normal activities
Do not wax, thread, tweeze, or use depilatory products— this will remove the hair follicles, making it impossible to remove the hair with laser
Feel free to shave between treatments
Do not exercise, take hot showers, or use hot tubs or saunas for 12-48 hours after treatment
SPF is always recommended post-treatment!
How Long Does it Last?
Although hair will appear thinner and less noticeable with just one treatment, you’ll need to return for multiple follow-up appointments to see optimal results. For optimal results and long-lasting hair reduction, we recommend a minimum of 6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Please note that hair removal is not 100% permanent and hormones play a role in hair growth cycles, which may decrease depending on age.
