With summer on our doorstep, more skin is out in the open, which means more spots that you don’t normally show are making an appearance. This is the time you want those bikini lines and back patches gone more than ever! You have probably heard that once you get your tan on, you have to stop any sort of hair removal treatment, which for safety reasons, can be the case. We have a solution for you!
We use the best in up to date laser removal technology and offer a variety of treatments. The Sciton Long Pulsed 1064 NdYag is a high powered technically advanced Laser Hair Removal System among our options. This system delivers a unique combination of laser parameters and contact cooling protection. The depth of the laser gives clients of all skin types an extremely safe and effective treatment.
Laser Hair Removal uses precise wavelengths that can focus on the melanin pigment and target it. These wavelengths are able to focus on the pigment while avoiding damage to the surrounding skin. When laser hair removal first started, the lasers used did not have a great ability to focus wavelengths and, the darker your skin, the harder it was to remove the hair.
The longer pulse of the NdYag targets the deeper pigment of the the hair follicles below the melanin pigment, making it safer for darker skin tones and more effective. The right wavelength reaches even the deepest hair roots, which can be 4-6 mm below the surface of the skin in some cases. There is less heat build up within the skin using the NdYag, and the contact chilled plate cools the skin off providing more protection and comfort during treatment.
Therefore, it is a safe treatment to use all year round. Even if you have been sunning yourself, you can continue your hair removal process and not have to worry. We do recommend that you still avoid tanning 1 week prior to treatment, just in case.
