Everything you need to know about Laser Hair Removal

As you put away summer clothes you may not be thinking about bare legs but Fall is the perfect time to consider Laser Hair Removal. Since sun exposure must be avoided after treatment Fall is the ideal time to target areas that are difficult to keep hidden in the warmer months. If you love the luxurious feeling of smooth hairless skin but are frustrated with the shortcomings of shaving or waxing—Laser Hair Removal could be the solution for you. 

Laser Hair Removal is permanent—this means no more five o’clock shadows, regrowth, red bumps, ingrown hairs, bristle, or environmentally unfriendly razors. Best of all—it can help you save time and feel confident. 

How does it work?

The Vectus diode Laser emits pulses of concentrated light energy that heats hair follicles. After the treatment, the melanin in the follicle absorbs the light and permanently prevents the production of noticeable hairs.

Since hair grows in different cycles, some will be in a resting phase during initial treatments. For this reason, multiple treatments are required to remove all hair follicles. Based on these hair growth cycles, facial hair can be treated every four weeks and body hair every eight. Most clients experience desired results between four and six treatments. 

What is the difference between a clinical and at-home hair removal device?

Many people resort to using at-home devices. These devices are designed for safe use at home when used correctly. Due to safety restrictions, however, they are much less effective than professional Lasers. For this reason, many people push the limits of their device and cause unsafe damage to their skin and hair. Treatment results have been proven to be significantly safer and more effective with professional in-clinic Lasers directed by trained professional staff.

Why Gina’s uses the Cynosure Vectus Diode Laser

The Laser at Gina’s is used exclusively for hair removal. It is suitable for all skin pigments as long as the necessary hair to skin contrast is present. With the technology of the SkinTel, this device reads the colour of your skin to provide safe and precise treatment settings. 

The Cynosure Vectus Hair Removal Laser includes a contact cooling feature that feels like a cool ice cube pressed against the skin before and after each pulse. Your treatments will be quick and effective, with permanent results in fewer sessions than alternative clinical Lasers.
