Laser Hair Removal

*Are you tired of wasting time and money shaving? If you are seeking a safe, efficient, and permanent treatment for unwanted hair, Philosophy of Beauty is proud to offer the solution you are looking for. Using the state of the art, advanced technology of Fotona and LightSheer laser systems, we are able to eliminate excess hair quickly and effectively.*

Laser Hair Removal with LightSheer

*Lumenis LightSheer systems are a well-established method for Laser Hair Removal. At Philosophy of Beauty we are proud to offer the LightSheer Diode Laser, one of the most popular Laser Hair Removal devices in the world today, which is unmatched by any competitors. The LightSheer uses an 810-nanometer diode laser. As the laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light, it is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. This process causes the follicle to either be destroyed or damaged enough through the absorption of energy to prevent re-growth.*

*The advanced ChillTip hand piece is an integral part of the LightSheer system, which serves to make treatments more comfortable without sacrificing efficiency. The ChillTip works by cooling the skin in the treatment area, counteracting the inherent heat of the laser pulse. This combination results in dramatically improved comfort during treatment compared to other hair reduction methods. Laser hair removal with LightSheer can treat a wide range of skin complexions from fair to dark. However, this wavelength of light is particularly well suited to individuals with light to medium skin pigment and dark hair.*

Laser Hair Removal with Fotona

*Fotona's high-performance Nd:YAG laser system utilizes advanced FRAC3 technology and has introduced new standards of efficiency in providing safe and effective hair reduction. The laser uses an innovative system that specifically targets hair follicles with a combination of selective and homogenous photothermolysis. The FRAC3 technology works by targeting surface treatment areas while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected. The pulse technology utilizes longer wavelengths which are able to target the hair follicles deeper than conventional lasers, thereby delivering more laser light into the hair follicle with each repeated pass over the area. As a result, the high peak-power laser pulses provide the speed and efficiency needed to uniformly cover large areas, making it a cost-effective solution for long-term hair reduction.*

*A common challenge with traditional hair removal has been the difficulty in treating those with darker skin tones. However, Fotona has found a way around this challenge by devising a laser system that is able to safely and effectively treat all skin types.*

How long does it take to see results?

*The success of the treatment will depend largely on the patient’s skin type, hair type and density, as well as the area of treatment. While patients may notice a visible reduction in hair growth after just one treatment, multiple sessions are required for permanent results because during each treatment, your hair will be in various stages of the growth cycle. Most patients experience a significant reduction in hair growth after three to five sessions but the process takes several months due to the time required between treatments.*

Frequently Asked Questions

1How many treatments are required?
*During your complimentary consultation at Philosophy of Beauty, our caring and experienced technicians will examine your treatment area and develop an individualized treatment plan. While the number of sessions required will vary depending on the individual case as well as the size of the treatment area, on average between three to five sessions are recommended. Treatments will be scheduled at four to eight week intervals depending on the area of the body treated, due to the natural hair growth cycle.*
*Although the laser is effective on all skin types, it should be noted that clients with finer hair and/or darker skin might require more treatments due to the setting adjustments that are required. The appropriate energy setting for darker skin types is generally lower to prevent damage to the skin, which means more sessions may be necessary for optimal results. On the other hand, finer and lighter hair does not absorb the laser light as effectively as darker, coarser hair, so additional treatments may be required. In addition, those who suffer from hormonal imbalances may require ongoing treatments since some hormones are known to stimulate the development of coarse dark hair in certain areas.*
2What are common side effects of Laser Hair Removal?
*Side effects associated with Laser Hair Removal are generally mild and temporary. The treatment area may be red or slightly swollen but these symptoms dissipate very quickly, often within minutes of the session. In rare instances, blistering may occur, which can cause temporary pigment changes such as lightening or darkening of the skin. This discoloration resolves itself within a few weeks.*
*Imagine the freedom of never having to tweeze, wax or shave again! If you are tired of traditional hair removal methods, such as waxing, shaving, plucking, and sugaring, which are not only temporary but also painful, Philosophy of Beauty invites you to schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if Laser Hair Removal is right for you. We understand how frustrating and time-consuming hair removal can be and are here to help you achieve the smooth, carefree results you are looking for.*
