How does laser hair removal work?
The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light and converts the light to heat. The heat, in turn, damages the follicle and alters its ability to re-grow. It is important to treat each follicle during the active cycle for maximum hair reduction.
The laser pulses for just a fraction of a second, heating the hair follicle and impairing its ability to re-grow. The Elite MPX™ utilizes SmartCool® air cooling technology that cools before during and after each laser pulse to protect your skin and make treatments more comfortable.
Treatments will be performed in a series ranging from four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments required, varies from individual to individual, but most patients will need a minimum of six treatments to achieve desired results. Compliance in treatment schedule and at home post procedure care plays the most important role in the long-term effects of the laser hair removal treatments.
What areas can be treated?
Laser hair removal can remove hair from the face (except around the eyes), back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini line, and legs.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. The best way to answer this is to have a consultation.
Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
Laser hair removal treatments CAN NOT be performed on skin that is tanned, or has been altered by tanning lotions, tanning beds or the sun.
Possible Causes for Excessive Hair Growth that may affect your treatments:

There could be many reasons that a person experiences excessive hair growth and those reasons should be fully investigated with a medical professional before you schedule laser hair removal treatments.
Are there any side effects?
Some typical side effects of laser hair removal include a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness), accompanied by some minor swelling immediately following the treatment. These effects may last a few days.
