FAQs

How does Laser Hair Removal with elos™ work?

elos™ (electro-optical synergy) uses a combination of radio frequency and light to isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. Using gentle pulses of dual targeted energy, means better results with lower overall energy, output-assuring the highest level of safety and comfort. Other systems for Laser Hair Removal using only one energy source can’t compare.

Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?

Each individual experience varies with Laser Hair Removal. However, most people only feel a slight pin prick, or rubber band snap, sensation. For your added safety and comfort, the Laser Hair Removal elos™ technology features an advanced patient comfort system. This system monitors your skin and keeps it at a cool temperature during the procedure. We go over the treated area twice with the laser. In between passes, we apply an ice pack for extra comfort during the Laser Hair Removal process.

Why are repeated sessions of Laser Hair Removal necessary?

Hair goes through 3 different cycles: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Anagen refers to the growth stage of hair in which Laser Hair Removal treatment works best on. The hairs, in this stage, have a blood supply that can be served by Laser Hair Removal. The Catagen, and Telogen stages do not have a blood supply and are considered dormant. While one Laser Hair Removal treatment may have long lasting effects, repeated Laser Hair Removal treatments are necessary for best results to catch the hairs during their different stages of hair growth. Hair growth may appear after 6-8 treatments but it will be thinner, lighter in color and at a slower growing rate than before. It is Laser Hair reduction.

Is Laser Hair Removal with elos™ right for me?

Hair reduction can be achieved for both men and women, and almost all body areas can be treated. Only elos™ is proven to remove lighter colored hair, on all skin tones.

When can I expect to see results?

Hair growth is reduced with each treatment. Sometimes it takes a couple treatments for you to see the difference. The total number of treatments required is based on your hair color and type, body area, and skin tone. During your initial consultation, your medical practitioner will personalize your treatment schedule for maximum results.

How much does it cost?

Is Laser Hair Removal for Anyone?

White skin with dark hair works the best for Laser Hair Removal. People with coarse dark hair are the easiest to treat with Laser Hair Removal because dark hair contains melanin, a dark pigment which attracts the laser light allowing more hair follicles to be destroyed, and fewer Laser Hair Removal sessions are needed. People with tanned skin are asked to stop tanning and let the tanned area fade before starting Laser Hair Removal. Darker skinned people can get treatments but it may require more Laser Hair Removal treatments.
