Is Laser Hair Removal Right For Me?


The ideal candidate for this procedure has hair that is darker than his/her skin color. We utilize our StetikCare AngelPro 808 Diode Laser which is the latest technology available for hair removal and is FDA approved to treat all skin types, including dark and tanned skin. The laser emits a timed pulse of laser energy passing through the skin and absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. It is then converted to heat energy, which is designed to destroy the hair follicle so it cannot grow back.




Should I Shave Before Treaments?


Shaving the day before or just prior to the treatment is necessary and you may shave again twenty-four hours after treatment unless your provider tells you otherwise.




Is It Safe?


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. Diode Laser treatment has provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction for millions of patients worldwide. Because Diode Lasers utilizes low heat settings, it is able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure.




Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?


The laser hair removal is not much more painful than waxing, though the sensation is different. With each pulse, the feeling resembles a rubber band snapping against the skin for a quick second. Pain is only felt while laser is hitting the skin and does not last. The AngelPro™ is equipped with a powerful unichill cooling system. The contact temperature is from -4℃~10℃, ensuring zero down time and significant reduction in treatment discomfort level.




How Many Treatments Will I Need?


Typically, 6 to 8 treatments is adequate to provide permanent hair reduction. However, every client is different, it is mainly based on the density of the hair, hair color and skin color. We recommend you schedule a consultation so we can give a definitive answer.




Will My Hair Ever Grow Back?


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 is also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.




Why Do I Need 6-8 Treatments?


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 4 to 8 treatments, the area should be free from hair.




Do I Need To Arrange Time Off Work After Each Treatment?


Diode Laser treatment results in no "down time". You can have a treatment and return to work, school or other normal activities immediately.
