Forget painful waxing, shaving, and unpleasant hair removal creams – laser hair removal is an easy treatment with permanent hair reduction results. At JAVAN, we use the Gentle Max Pro laser which treats skin tones and hair colors. We offer an extensive consultation process to assess suitability, reduce any risk, and provide the best pre, during, and post-treatment course of action.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser is converted into heat energy that delivers an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin, destroying the root within the follicle and prevents future growth.
How does the treatment feel?
While laser hair removal can cause discomfort for some individuals, this sensation is not considered to be painful and can be described as the snapping of rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by the patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) or air cooling. In fact, laser hair removal is a safe and suitable option even for sensitive areas such as the Brazilian and neck that can become irritated by other methods such as shaving or waxing.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. Laser hair removal can result in a long-lasting reduction in face and body hair growth for up to several years. The effects can vary from person to person and will also depend on how many treatments are performed. While it is possible for hair to grow back after laser hair removal, hair growth will be greatly reduced.
How do I prepare for treatment?
For at least six weeks prior to treatment, avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. It is advised to stay out of sun prior to or immediately after the treatment because of an increased risk of pigmentation change.
Are the side effects/Complications?
Permanent side effects are rare, and may include erythema, swelling, and pigmentation changes-these usually resolve in a few days. Be sure to discuss potential side effects with your provider.
