LASER HAIR REMOVAL BODY

TREATMENT

Laser hair removal is a safe and simple procedure. First your shaved skin is gently cleaned. Your skin is assessed and tested by your JTAV Clinical Skin Expert prior to actual treatment to ensure maximum results. Then, an individually programmable laser or intense pulsed light handset is run over the area. The light energy passes through the skin to the pigment in the hair follicle where it is absorbed. Within two to three weeks those hairs which were in the active growth phase during treatment and absorbed the light energy are permanently eliminated and fall out. At the follow-up treatments, which are timed to coincide with the next active growth phase, the remaining hair follicles are disabled leaving you with silky smooth skin.

TARGETS

Unwanted dark hair on the body.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair but most of these hairs are actually being shed as a result of your treatment and are not re-growing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave. Although clients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn but does not last long.

Please note that most areas require 6 to 9 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Our laser hair removal treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area. We offer series to keep you on track and suggest scheduling your course of treatment at your first appointment.
