Light Age Alexandrite laser
Trying to get rid of unwanted hair on the face or body is a common problem for both men and women. Laser hair reduction offers results that cannot be achieved with conventional shaving, waxing, plucking, electrolysis, or lower frequency laser and light systems. The laser works by targeting the hair in the follicle, below the skin’s surface.
Our Light Age alexandrite laser is safe and effective for all areas of the body and for men and women of all ages. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Facial areas such as the upper lip and sideburns, bikini area, upper and lower legs, arms, chest, and back may be treated leaving skin smooth, stubble free and without the irritation of ingrown hairs.
Hair grows in cycles. A minimum of four treatments will be necessary, as the process is most effective on hair during the early growth cycle. After each session, you will see substantial visible hair reduction. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin color and coarseness of the hair. Repeat sessions will be necessary to treat the follicles when they re-enter the early growth phase. Re-growth in between treatments will also come in thinner and finer.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
The number of sessions will vary for each individual and will also depend upon where the hair is located on the body. During the initial visit, the Light Age removes the visible hair and disables those follicles in the “active” phase of the growth cycle. Follicles in the “resting” phase will not be affected. Eventually, as these dormant hairs become active and begin to grow, additional sessions may be desired. Over time, hair growth will be slower and finer.
We recommend a minimum of four treatments, and then a maintenance schedule according to each individual. Prices are per treatment, according to the area of the body.
