Laser Hair Removal
Advances in laser technology as well as a better understanding of laser skin interactions have allowed laser hair removal to become an increasingly popular method of unwanted hair removal. Treatments for laser hair removal at Cheryl's Hair Removal and Cellulite Reduction Center, a division of Buffalo Laser Spa, Inc., can effectively remove unwanted hair from almost any area of the body. Unlike electrolysis, a time consuming treatment program that works to kill each hair follicle individually, laser hair removal is fast and easy because it can treat and remove hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously.
Buffalo Laser Spa provides services all across Western New York including laser hair removal in Orchard Park, laser hair removal in West Seneca, laser hair removal in Clarence, and all surrounding areas. Many clinics lack proper training and experience which potentially can lead to poor treatment quality and even burning and permanent scarring from the treatment. Here at Buffalo Laser Spa with over over 18 years of experience in permeant hair removal we are the most experienced laser spa in Western New York. Our success is primarily due to the quality of our work and the dedication that we provide to every customer.
How Does It Work?
Lasers used for laser hair removal treatments produce a highly concentrated beam of light which is directed over the treatment area. There are a number of different lasers that can be utilized for this procedure; each is unique based on the wavelength of light it emits. The laser technicians here at Cheryl's will use different light wavelengths depending on the patient's hair and skin type. The key to the effectiveness on the hair follicles is the laser's light.
Each laser emits light and produces specific and controlled pulses of energy which are delivered to the follicles of the hair. When the laser light is passed over the skin's surface, the hair follicles beneath the surface absorb the emitted light. The pulse of energy plus the absorption of light causes vaporization of the follicle pigment which leads to significant impediment and sometimes even overall elimination of hair re-growth.
The lasers effectiveness is wholly based on the principle of Selective Photothermolysis. Selective Photothermolysis is a principle that pertains to the effectiveness of the laser light during the procedure. When performed correctly, the laser light will pass through the outer layers of skin to the hair follicles below without damaging the skin cells. Our laser technicians can adjust the pulse width (the amount of time the laser is on) so that the laser light passes safely through the skin to the follicles below. When this is done properly, the laser light will not affect the skin tissue surrounding the treated area.
Does It Hurt?
Patients generally describe a mild discomfort associated with the procedure; most say it is similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. During the procedure, all lasers have some sort of cooling device implemented, such as a cooling gel or spray. The coolant will be emitted directly before the laser pulse to ensure maximum comfort and protection. If patients still experience discomfort, numbing gels or crèmes can be applied before the laser procedure.
Although cooling devices are in place to protect the skin, patients can still experience redness in the treated area. If redness occurs, it will most likely subside within a few hours, but most patients do not experience any redness at all.
What Results Can I Expect?
When undergoing laser hair removal procedures at Buffalo Laser Spa, Inc., patients should not expect immediate results. Most will need several treatments in order to effectively disable the hair follicles. The number of treatments needed, will depend largely on skin type and coarseness and color of hair. Laser hair removal can require patients to have anywhere from three to six treatments, but some might need as many as eight. Most laser hair removal treatments have been over 90% effective for impeding hair growth; some have even completely eradicated all hair growth in the treated area.
