What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Removing hair at home can be such a chore! When it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair, turning to laser hair removal is not only practical but comfortable too. At JTAV Clinical Skincare, we want to help rid you of the hassle that comes with at-home shaving. Our LightSheer® laser hair removal system for unwanted hair on the body and face is designed to give you the hairless skin you want with minimal discomfort, no downtime, and maximum results. Treatments are gentle and offer a range of hair removal options that traditional razors can’t without causing serious irritation. To get started, simply get in touch and schedule your appointment on the Upper East Side today.
What Does Laser Hair Removal Address?
Full body laser hair removal is the primary function of the LightSheer® device. This non-invasive treatment system targets hair follicles at their source, delivering exceptional hair reduction without damaging your skin. If you have unwanted dark hair on your body or face, treatments at JTAV Clinical Skincare will likely be your saving grace! Treatment areas include the areolas, back, bikini zone, Brazilian, underarms, cheeks, chest, chin, full arms, navel, and stomach.
Am I a Candidate?
Whether you’re interested in armpit hair laser removal or smooth, hairless legs, our system can help. Body hair removal can be especially difficult for men, but thanks to the LightSheer®, you can enjoy beautiful results regardless of your skin type or hair consistency. When you arrive for your appointment, our JTAV team will evaluate your needs and determine the best protocol to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Laser hair removal is a safe and simple procedure. First, your shaved skin is gently cleaned. Your skin is assessed and tested by our JTAV Clinical Skin Expert prior to the actual treatment to ensure maximum results. Then, the LightSheer® laser is run over the area. The light energy passes through the skin to the pigment in the hair follicle where it is absorbed.
Within 2-3 weeks, those hairs which were in the active growth phase during treatment that 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.
How Long Laser Hair Removal Results Last?
Immediately following your LightSheer® treatment, the area treated may appear a bit red and swollen. 3-7 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.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Please note that most areas require 6-9 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 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 a series of LightSheer® treatments to keep you on track and suggest scheduling your course of treatment at your first appointment.
