Reduce the time spent on shaving, plucking and waxing unwanted hair with best laser hair removal at NU YOUTH MEDISPA. We use advanced laser technology to provide long lasting freedom from unwanted hair, and this safe, effective treatment works for men and women with hair in undesirable places, including the face, back, underarms, bikini line, legs, and arms.
Sciton BBL Laser hair removal uses a highly concentrated beam of light that is aimed at the unwanted hair. The light travels down the hair shaft and into the bulb of the follicle where the blood supply to the follicle is located. The absorption converts light into heat energy, which raises the temperature of the bulb causing the blood vessels that supply blood and other necessary nutrients to the follicle to be cauterized. After your course of laser hair removal treatments is completed, hair growth is no longer possible.
This process should happen selectively and without damage being done to the epidermis or surrounding tissue. A thermoelectrically-cooled sapphire crystal on the hand piece provides continuous skin cooling before, during, and after the laser hair removal treatment for added comfort.
Laser hair removal works primarily by targeting the hair’s root. The length of time the hair is kept from regrowing varies greatly from person to person; it could stunt the growth for several months or a few years. Laser hair removal usually requires about six to eight treatments. Sessions are done when the growth cycle is active in the anagen stage, which is when the hair bulb is intact and is closest to the surface, allowing for the most efficacious treatment. After a series of treatments, most new hair growth is significantly reduced; however, if hair does regrow, it will be finer and lighter than before. Touch-up treatments at the medical spa clinic are recommended about once a year thereafter.
Sciton laser hair removal is most successful on people with dark hair and light skin. Dark objects absorb light with more intensity than light objects, so dark hair absorbs the light beam all the way to the hair follicle without targeting the surrounding lighter skin. Laser hair removal does not work very well on blond hair and not at all on white hair. Black people are not the best candidates for this type of laser hair removal because there is no contrast between the skin melamin and the melamin in the hair follicle. Treating the darker skin types can cause hyperpigmentation (darker spots) or hypopigmentation ( lighter spots on the skin).
The skin should be cleanly shaved the day before the treatment. The skin should not be tan, including self tanners, because the light will absorb the pigment on the skin before reaching the hair follicle. On the day of the treatment, prepare for your visit to the medical spa clinic by wearing clothing that will allow easy access to the treatment area. The laser is virtually painless, so no numbing creams are required.
The continuous cooling feature ensures patient comfort and safety during treatment. Most clients describe laser hair reduction as feeling “prickly,” or like the light snap of a rubber band against the skin. Afterwards, it might feel like a bad sunburn. Each client has his or her own level of skin sensitivity and pain threshold. Different areas on the body are also more sensitive than others. Most clients are able to tolerate the procedure.
Treatment time depends on the size of the area to be treated. Facial and bikini areas are usually completed in less than 15 minutes; legs, backs and larger areas can take up to an hour.
Hair revolves through three phases of growth:
anagen, catagen and telogen. It is only during the growing phase, anagen, that hair reacts to BBL light. Not all hair present is in the anagen phase at the same time. Duration of hair growth cycles depends on the body location being treated. Multiple treatments are necessary over a time span of typically 4-8 week intervals to remove hair from most areas.
Clients can resume all activities immediately after their visit to the medical spa clinic. Results can be seen 2 to 3 weeks post-treatment. Some redness and slight swelling may be present in the treatment area. However, this should subside within a few hours. Some redness may remain for five days.
Strictly avoid any sun exposure to the treated area for a minimum of 7 days after a laser hair removal session. The treated area is more prone to sunburn and pigmentation change. Keep the area covered, and use a sun block with a protection factor of 30+.
