We treat with a medical grade laser called the “Candela Gentle Yag” that is safe for all skin types.
The Gentle Yag Laser system has a long pulse making this laser safe for darker skin tones. The easiest person to treat for laser hair removal has darker hair on lighter skin, but there are now lasers (the Nd:YAG) that can be used to remove hair on a darker skin tone.
At Complete Laser & Esthetics we do not use IPL for hair removal treatments. IPL operates differently to medical grade lasers as it sends out multiple rays of light which is a less targeted approach than a medical laser machine. A medical laser produces a single wavelength of light (pure light consisting of one single colour and form), which has a very concentrated beam and specific target (the melanin in the hair follicle).
This gives clients more of an effective treatment.
Laser still does not work well for grey hair, fine blond hair, or women with hormonal problems such as polycystic ovarian disease. Also, if you just have a few, coarse hairs on your chin without colour electrolysis will be more cost effective.
A dynamic cooling device further protects the skin during treatments. Cryogen is sprayed onto the skin cooling the epidermis proving clients with comfort and protection. We have the ability to provide 80-90% reduction after 6-8 treatments.
We feel Consultations are extremely important as it’s a great way to discuss all your questions and concerns. It also helps build a comfort level between technician and client.
Consultations are always complimentary at Complete Laser & Esthetics. Come speak with the experts who are fully licensed and experienced.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis four to six weeks before treatment.
That’s because the laser targets the hair roots, which are temporarily removed when you wax or tweeze.
Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and self-tanners one week before treatment. All areas should be covered and using a sunscreen 30+ if that area is getting exposure during laser treatments.
The night or morning before your laser treatments we ask you to be clean shaven so there is no hair on the surface. This is very important as we want the laser to be attracted to the hair follicle and not get reflected off the hair on the surface of the skin.
All makeup and lotion should be removed prior to treatment.
If antibiotics or any new medications have been started, inform your provider prior to treatment.
Avoid any medication if it causes photosensitivity. If you are on a photosensitive medication make sure you avoid laser treatments until finished that medication.
Topical Numbing Cream can be applied to the treated area 45 minutes before to add more comfort.
