Before and After Laser
What should I do before treatment?
Try to stay out of the sun before a laser treatment. Hair can be more aggressively treated without a fresh tan. You cannot wax, tweeze, thread or have electrolysis for 3 weeks before a session. The day before your appointment the hair will need to be shaved. Purchase either aloe, Vitamin E gel or sunburn creams and keep them in your fridge ready to use after your treatment.
What can I expect during the treatment?
A consent form will need to be filled out prior to the start of laser treatment. A touch up shave will be done if there is hair still visible. Blossoms will then distinguish which Fitzpatrick skin type you are before treatment begins in order to gauge for machine settings. The skin will be cleaned often while the treatment and a Cooling hammer will be applied for comfort.
What should I do after my treatment?
A post treatment care sheet will be given to aid in reducing discomfort over the next few hours after your session. Please follow the suggestions such as applying a cold compress to the treated area. Your skin will feel like its been sunburnt during the process and in turn treat it as such with SPF 30 cream if sun exposure is unavoidable. This reaction will subside, and within a few hours the area returns to normal. Since the laser does not burn or cut the skin in any way, no bandages are necessary, and you can return to your normal activities immediately.
Age, ethnicity, weight, medications, hormone levels and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience. These factors affect the length, coarseness and color of hair. Hairs are not all actively growing at the same time. Hair has three distinct stages: growth (anagen) this stage is when hair is darkest, regression (catagen) and resting (telogen). After the resting stage hair falls out and the hair follicle begins the cycle again.
Eclipse Laser Hair Removal uses the world’s most advanced treatment for hair removal, IPL system from Palomar Medical Technologies. We selected this laser due to its proven and unmatched track record, larger spot size and its ability to treat darker skinned clients. The Palomar EsteLux has FDA and CSA clearance for permanent hair reduction.
How Does It Work?
The beam of laser light targets the pigment contained within the hair follicle below the skin surface. The laser energy is selectively absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and hair shaft, which disables the hair’s growth center. In addition, the lasers increased energy is derived by Palomar’s exclusive Photon Recycling process, which captures light scattered out of the skin during treatment and redirects it back into the target area. Thus making the hair follicles in the anagen growth phase damaged and unable to regain maximum growth capacity. Each additional treatment significantly reduces and severely restricts regrowth. Since not all hairs are in this growth stage at one time, multiple treatments are necessary. Hair below the neckline should be sequenced four weeks apart. Facial areas and necklines should be scheduled two weeks from previous session.(generally, 4-6 treatments are needed for 95% hair removal)
