What To Know About Laser Hair Removal

30 January 2015, Comments 0

What is Laser Hair Removal?


Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that removes unwanted hair from various areas on the body using a laser. The treatment is performed by an experienced medical provider and is an outpatient procedure. The laser used is an intense flashing light applied to the area being treated. The beam penetrates the epidermis to reach the hair follicle where it reduces future growth. Laser hair removal is an effective means of slowing the growth process, and in some cases permanently stops new hair growth. For permanent results multiple sessions are required and results are never guaranteed. It is important to note that different skin pigments and hair colors produce different results.Laser Hair Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal: How it Works

18 December 2014, Comments 0

It’s a common theory: do not get a tattoo if you do not want it forever.

Sure, it makes sense. However, times have changed and we are only humans, right? Although it is still highly recommended to put significant thought into the art piece, we are no longer stuck with the markings forever. As the leading method of tattoo removal, laser treatment is a relatively safe and effective procedure. Here is some useful information that will allow you to make an informed decision!

Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

Laser hair removal is done through a series of treatments. The amount of visits required is based off a number of variables such as age, size and color of the tattoo and will vary from patient to patient.

Before: Prior to having the procedure done, the doctor will schedule a consultation to explain the necessary steps for removing your tattoo.  When arriving for your treatment, the doctor will prep you for several safety precautions in addition to a skin test.

During: During the removal process, the laser tool will be placed directly on the skin. It will emit regular pulses which may cause slight discomfort.

After: A cold compress will be applied to the treated area and covered with a bandage for protection.

This process is repeated until the desired results are achieved.
