LASER HAIR REMOVAL
At B Medical Spa we use the Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ system to decrease the risk of side effects and pain.
Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive procedure used to permanently reduce unwanted hair and for long-term hair removal. Laser treatment can effectively eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. Unlike many other hair removal methods, laser treatment leaves your skin looking and feeling much smoother and softer. Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ shatters the myth of no-pain, no-gain. The system’s SHR™ technology and IN Motion™ protocol safely and gently heats the targeted area. SHR’s™ pulses of energy gradually heat the follicles in the skin’s sub dermal layer. An additional cooling mechanism further ensures the surface of your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout your treatment.
Most people find the Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients describe it as soothing and like a, “Hot stone massage.” Most conventional laser hair removal technologies utilize massive amounts of heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent reduction. Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ SHR™, on the other hand, is a unique technology that delivers low heat levels at a fast delivery. By utilizing low heat, SHR™ decreases the pain and minimizes the risk of side effects. This is why no numbing cream is necessary. You’ve heard horror stories about burns, blistering and scaring? The SHR™ removal treatment can make them a thing of the past! Best of all, the high speed of SHR™ delivery creates a short treatment; 5 to 15 minutes on a small body part and 20 to 30 minutes on the average man’s back.

- Chances of scarring and pigmentation change are minimized.
Millions of men and women have been successfully treated. Treatment is customized according to hair color, texture, and the area being targeted. Treatment for most hair colors typically yields high levels of success and patient satisfaction. Treatment is effective on all skin types, including dark-skinned individuals of all ethnic origins.
Side effects are rare. Sensitivity, irritation, and redness may occur at the treatment site but then quickly disappears. Susceptibility to these side effects will be identified during your consultation. To greatly minimize the risk of side effects, sun exposure must be limited prior to and immediately following treatment.
Preliminary setup involves cleansing and shaving the area to be treated. A laser is then directed toward the area and produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Without damaging the surrounding tissue, controlled pulses of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by hair follicles. The heat generated in the process discourages and ultimately destroys the hair and its potential for regrowth. Post-treatment includes a cleanup of the treated area and the application of a sunblock. Large areas such those found on the back, shoulders, abdomen, and legs are rapidly treated. Smaller facial areas like the lip, chin, and beard can be treated in minutes.
Shaving the day before or just prior to treatment is recommended and you may shave again twenty-four hours after treatment unless your provider tells you otherwise.
Laser hair removal is the most popular aesthetic procedure performed annually. Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers and the hair removal treatment has provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide. Because Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ utilizes our IN-MOTION™ and low-heat settings we’re able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure.
Typically, 6-8 treatments is adequate to provide permanent hair reduction. However, after a one-on-one consultation, a member of our staff may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require additional treatment. We will advise you. It’s not unusual to require a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.
Actively growing hairs that are treated should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth) Catagen (regression) Telogen (resting, not growing) Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage, (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. After 6-8 treatments, the area should be free from hair.
No. This treatment has no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work, school or other normal activities immediately.
Most people find the Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ laser hair removal treatment comfortable, especially when compared to other hair removal methods and lasers.
