Is it permanent?
Expect dramatic improvement. For some, this may mean a significant decrease
in the frequency with which you must shave or pluck your hair. For others, it
may mean permanent cosmetic improvement because hair re-growth will be minimal, very fine or completely absent. Everyone gets some re-growth with time regardless of the technology used. In all probability, you will get permanent/long term decrease in the amount of hair. Hair that grows back will tend to be much finer and less concentrated.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
It is necessary for you to have one to two day's growth so that the areas that require treatment are easily recognizable. If not, it may be difficult to pinpoint all areas needing treatment. Your technician will need to trim the hair to skin level with a razor or clippers if necessary.
For hair removal on the face, please do not use (or make sure you wash off), all makeup prior to treatment.
If you are currently on the medication Accutane, or have been in the past six months, please let us know. This medication can make your skin more susceptible to damage from the laser.
Generally, it is best to wait 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. There is no advantage to scheduling your visits closer together or even if you do not see immediate results. The laser only targets hair in the growth phase. The next growth phase will be 4 to 6 weeks.
Try to avoid sun exposure for at least 3-4 days prior to treatment. Our Hair RemovalLaser Treatment will work on all skin types.

Discover the Beauty of elos™ Hair Removal - Safe. Effective. Gentle.
Say goodbye to unwanted facial and body hair.
elos™ Hair Removal is effective for most hair colors and all skin types. Treatment areas include: upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs, and back.
Using the revolutionary elos Technology, combination of light/laser and bi-polar radio frequency, elos Hair Removal safely and effectively treats for hair removal and permanent hair reduction.
The target is preheated by using optical energy, which creates a thermal path on which the bi-polar radio frequency (RF) travels.
Radio frequency is delivered directly to the hair follicle, which can not further conduct the frequency. This build up of current density, results in the hair follicle being terminally disabled and denatured.
Does hair color matter with laser hair removal?
White and blonde hair could not be treated until now, but Leading Edge Cosmetic Laser Surgery's Laser Hair Removal now offers exclusive laser hair removal for people with white and blonde hair, as well as for people with dark hair.
How long do the treatments take?
Hair removal for the upper lip and chin can be done in 2 minutes, underarms or bikini lines usually take 5 minutes. The legs and back take longer. Very often, follow up treatments are shorter because there is much less hair to treat.
When should I expect to see results?
There is often no immediate change. Your skin may get slightly red or even develop a small crust that will peel. The laser may leave small red marks on your skin. The marks clear up in a few days. The hair that has been destroyed will not start to fall out for 2-3
weeks. Many times it will get darker and thicker just before it falls out. Don't worry if you do not see an obvious change immediately after your first treatment. This procedure works. Stick with it.
