Laser Hair Removal Preparation
Laser hair removal procedures should only be conducted by laser specialists who are experienced in using laser technologies.
During your initial consultation, your Premier Vein & Body laser specialist will review your medical history, including your ongoing medication, history of skin disorders, and details of any previous hair removal treatments.
We will then determine if laser hair reduction is an appropriate treatment for you and discuss your options. Should laser hair removal be the best option for you, a treatment plan will be discussed.
Your preparation instructions may include staying out of the sun, avoiding skin creams that darken your skin, and refraining from other hair removal treatments that disturb the hair follicles, such as plucking and waxing.
You should avoid taking any blood-thinning medication like aspirin before the procedure. You will be asked to shave the treatment area prior to your first laser hair removal session so that the laser treatment can provide optimal results.
Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Premier Vein & Body uses a dual-energy approach with the Sciton Profile laser system: the BBL (IPL) and the 1064 nm Nd:YAG. The combination of both wavelengths ensures the best outcome with minimal treatment sessions required.
The Sciton Profile is highly customizable and offers complete control, resulting in a custom treatment plan adapted to your specific skin and hair type. When the process begins, the highly-focused light pulses on hair follicle pigments.
The hair inside each follicle absorbs the light energy from the Sciton Profile and causes it to shed. It’s worth noting that laser hair reduction treatments, such as the one offered by Premier Vein & Body, can only target hair follicles in the active growth phase. No other tissue is affected by the laser and only the hair in the growth phase is removed.
Since only growth phase hairs are able to be treated at any given time, you’ll need approximately four to five treatment sessions, each spaced four to six weeks apart, to target all your unwanted hair. Our laser hair removal treatments are safe and suitable for all skin types, including dark skin tones.
