Unwanted hair has become one of the most significant aesthetic concerns in America for women and men alike. Shaving, plucking, and waxing can be tiresome, annoying, and costly. Hair removal at Aesthetic Envy offers a permanent hair reduction solution to unwanted hair on all parts of the body- no matter the hair or skin type or color.

What is it?

Our Astanza ReSmooth laser emits bright flashes of light onto the area with unwanted hair. The light travels safely through the skin and targets the melanin in the hair follicles. The absorption of light converts to heat which destroys the growing cells that make the hair.

Benefits

• Precision: The lasers are able to target thick and coarse hair without damaging the surrounding skin
• Speed: A single pulse can target many hairs in the fraction of a second
• Permanent hair loss: Many achieve this after about 3-7 sessions
• Permanent hair reduction: 80-90% overall

Procedure

During the consultation, you will be able to discuss the areas you are looking to have treated. The aesthetic practitioner will then review your medical history and examine the treatment areas. These areas are to be shaved a few days prior. As it gets closer to treatment day, we ask that you refrain from shaving, waxing, or using hair removal creams and lotions. This treatment can be completed without sedation or a strong anesthesia. On the day of the procedure, a local anesthetic may be applied if needed. Both practitioner and patient will be required to wear special glasses to protect the eyes from the light of the laser. Laser Hair removal is a treatment in which highly concentrated light is beamed into hair follicles. Light converts to heat once on the skin. The hair absorbs the heat (because of dark pigment). Heat travels to the root where pigment cells are stored. Your aesthetic practitioner may use a spray, gel, or cool laser tip to help make for a more comfortable experience. Approximately 20% of hair follicles in the skin are in a susceptible phase for treatment, which means that optimal hair reduction will require multiple sessions of therapy. With each session, the hairs will grow back thinner and weaker, eventually disappearing. As this occurs, skin will feel much smooth. Most people may need between 6-12 treatments and should be done every 4-6 weeks for long-lasting results. Over time, touch up sessions may be needed.
