Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a minimally invasive treatment that uses laser (light) energy to destroy unwanted hair and reduce its ability to grow back.

St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa uses the Venus Velocity™ system’s intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal function to effectively target unwanted hair.

How does laser hair removal work?

IPL technology uses a broad spectrum of pulsed light wavelengths that penetrate the pigment in the hair follicle, which then absorbs these pulses of light. This light then converts to heat energy, permanently damaging the hair follicle itself. Gradually, this process destroys the follicle and slows the regrowth of hair by up to 90%.

Which areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal can help eliminate unwanted hair nearly anywhere on your body, but the treatment works best on the legs, arms, underarms, face, chest, and back.

Although IPL treatments work best on fair-to-medium skin tones, the Venus Velocity has a variety of different settings to effectively remove unwanted hair if you have a darker skin tone.

What happens during a laser hair removal treatment?

You shouldn’t apply any lotions, creams, or makeup before the treatment to prevent skin irritation. Fortunately, the Venus Velocity has a built-in cooling system that eases your discomfort during the treatment.

Laser hair removal with the Venus Velocity shouldn’t be painful, but it may feel like a small rubber band snapping against your skin.

After the treatment, your skin may feel similar to the rawness of a sunburn. To ease discomfort over the next day or two, you can apply a cool compress.

How long does laser hair removal take?

How long your first session takes depends on the area you want to be treated. Most treatments take about 60 minutes or less. You may notice results shortly after your first visit, however, most people need about six to eight sessions, spaced four to eight weeks apart, to see permanent hair reduction.

Hair grows in stages and it’s only during its growth cycle, when the hair is still in its follicle, that the removal process is most effective. The Venus Velocity™ Hair Removal applicator combines a high level of light energy (Intense Pulsed Light technology) with maximum heat distribution to multiple hair follicles at a time.

The energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, targeting the pigment in the follicle beneath the skin’s surface, but without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. Destroying the underlying follicle gets rid of the existing hair but also inhibits future hair growth in that area.

The SmartPulse™ technology ensures safe and consistent heat distribution, while the real-time cooling system keeps skin protected.

Laser hair removal is an effective treatment to permanently reduce thick, dark, unwanted hair on your face and body. To schedule an appointment with St. Pete Wellness & MedSpa, call the office, or book online today.

What to Expect

TRITON

 

The world’s first multi-wavelength workstation, the Triton is the only hair removal option that combines the three most popular wavelengths in one platform, using Fusion Technology, to address up to skin type VI.

KEY BENEFITS:

The mosaic combination of wavelengths address hair removal at different stages of the hair growth cycle. This means that deep hairs can be treated at the same time as newly emerging follicles. Thus, patients can see greater results in fewer sessions.

In the past, lasers had to reduce peak power or increase pulse width to reduce the risk for postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) in darker skin. Now with the Triton, higher power and a blend of wavelengths allows hair removal without compromising treatment parameters. A broader range of patient concerns can be covered with this innovative, safe and effective platform.

TECHNOLOGIES:

TRITON DUO LIGHT
Triton Duo Light is designed to treat a broad range of hairs for light-skin patients.

TRITON DUO DARK
Triton Duo Dark helps practices maximize safety on darker skin tones, up to skin type VI, without losing efficacy. This can expand the business to help patients who would otherwise be left without a hair removal solution.
