We all agree — the less body hair, the better! (Except maybe on the head.) The excessive or unwanted body hair can be a real nuisance for men and women alike. Each of our clients have a different reason for wanting laser hair removal, but no matter what the motivation, it is truly life changing.
At Central Wellness, we hold ourselves to the highest standards in everything we do. We perform laser hair removal using best-in-class laser systems that consistently provide safe treatments and high-quality results for people of all skin types.
The Candela laser sends a concentrated beam of light energy to the hair follicle which is transformed into heat. The heat reaches the hair bulb causing destruction of the follicle all without harming the skin. This procedure works on all skin colors and all pigmented hair (less effective on blonde, red, and grey)
Here are some of the most popular reasons for laser hair removal:
Laser hair removal lasts for long periods of time and although it is not considered permanent due to changes in hormones, many patients see little to no hair growth for years! It’s a simple, fast, and affordable treatment that frankly everybody should try! It makes life more comfortable, routines more convenient, skin smoother, and people more confident.
Laser hair removal is up to 80% permanent hair reduction after 3 treatments. It’s also one of the only FDA-cleared procedures that can directly target the source of hair growth beneath your skin. Laser hair removal is a semi-permanent procedure that will not get rid of hair forever, but it will minimize hair growth and produce finer hair that is harder to detect. This means you’ll be able to stop shaving your legs, armpits, bikini line, or wherever else you decide to have the treatment done.
The number of treatments will depend on the area being treated. The average number of treatments needed to achieve 80-90% permanent hair removal is about 8-10. Our membership programs are structured specifically so that you can receive all of the treatments you need to reach your full result, plus any touch-ups necessary to catch those stray hairs.
Before your laser hair removal appointment, you want to avoid sun exposure to the treated area, if you do go out may sure you wear sunscreen with a high SPF. You should not pluck, wax, or use electrolysis before your laser appointment as you want the follicles to be prominent and able to absorb the light from the laser. The day of your appointment shave the area that is being treated so that laser only targets follicle under the skin.
