Laser Hair Removal

Imagine, never having to pluck, tweeze, or shave again!

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment to permanently reduce unwanted facial or body hair. Wouldn't you love the convenience of never having to get your bikini line waxed again? Laser hair removal is more cost effective and less painful than electrolysis and repeated skin waxing.

At Eden Medispa, we use the Lightsheer ET Diode laser, considered the "gold standard" for laser hair removal. Laser light energy is attracted to the pigment or color of the hair in the hair follicle. The laser handpiece is applied to the skin overlying the hair follicle and the laser light energy transmits heat to the hair follicle to disrupt future hair growth. The Lightsheer Diode laser has a cooling sapphire tip incorporated into the handpiece that will cool the surrounding skin in order to minimize the discomfort associated with treatment.

Hair grows in cycles: anagen, telogen and catagen. Anagen is the actively growing phase and is the phase during which hair has the most pigment or color and is most affected by the laser light treatment. At any one time, only about 20 to 30% of the hair in any one area is in the anagen, or actively growing, phase. This means that in order to have optimal hair reduction, multiple treatments are required to treat the hair that is moving into the actively growing phase to achieve the results desired. We recommend a minimum of five treatments and treatments are performed at 4 to 6 week intervals. We usually ask that you call and schedule an appointment for treatment when you start seeing hair regrow into the area. Treatments can be purchased singly or in a package of five for significant savings. Additional treatments may be needed and are also discounted. Since the laser light energy is attracted to the pigment or color of the hair, white, red, and light blonde hair that have minimal pigment, cannot be treated adequately with the laser.
