Is laser hair removal safe?

On-going quality control and re-training is a priority at Elase. When performed by trained and experienced practitioners, side effects from laser hair removal are uncommon.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

Side effects are generally temporary and uncommon but may include; Hyperpigmentation (darkening of skin), hypopigmentation (loss of skin pigmentation), mild to moderate burns or blisters, temporary redness, follicular edema (little pink/red “puffiness” and small bumps like “goose bumps”) swelling and itching in treated area, bruising, and a lack of desired results. The best way to minimize the risk of side effects is to avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks pre and post treatment and provide your technician with an accurate and up to date medical history. Clients who are pregnant should be aware that hormonal changes might alter the effectiveness of laser treatments.

  • You should experience slight redness, bumps, and swelling in the treated area for up to 72 hours. If these conditions persist, topical creams such as aloe, calamine or hydrocortisone may be applied.
  • Allow 1 week post treatment for hair to “fall out”.
  • On average, patients experience 20-30% less re-growth after every treatment.
  • On average, patients experience 70-90% reduction in hair growth after a series of 8-12 treatments.
  • For best results, maintain a consistent treatment schedule.

How does laser hair removal work?

The simple answer is that lasers emit a pulse of light, which is absorbed by the pigmentation, and blood vessels of the hair follicle. When that light is absorbed by the hair follicle, it is converted to heat, which then destroys the follicle. When the hair follicle is destroyed, it is unable to re-grow hair. Because of the unique properties of each laser wavelength, the tissue surrounding the hair follicle is left untouched leaving you simply smooth.

What type of lasers does Elase use?

Elase works with the best laser manufacturers in the industry. Candela and Cynosure are the leaders in advanced laser technology. Elase combines ND: YAG and Alexandrite technologies to provide you the very best treatment possible. Elase also has the new Elite MPX technology that allows us to use both the ND:YAG and Alexandrite technologies simultaneously in a single pulse. This brand new technology gives you a faster, more effective, and less painful treatment.

How many treatments do I need?

The average number of treatments needed to achieve the full effect of laser hair removal varies greatly from person to person, and can vary between body parts. The majority of clients will end up needing about 8-10 treatments to accomplish permanent results. The Easy Choice Membership program allows our clients 2 full years of treatments. Only Elase offers you a straightforward plan that doesn’t leave you wondering how much you’ll have to pay for “touch-ups”.

Why do I need several treatments?

Hair follicles transition through active and dormant stages. With each treatment, we will cover the entire skin surface, but only those follicles that are “active” will be impacted. When a follicle is dormant, the laser light cannot be absorbed, and the follicle is left undamaged. Only about 30-50% of your hair is actively growing at any given time, so multiple treatments are necessary to ensure that we treat every single hair follicle.

The following diagram helps to explain the hair growth stages:

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Yes, laser hair removal is a permanent. Most Elase members can expect to achieve 70-90% permanent hair reduction. Hair removal is less effective on red, blonde or grey hair. Hormonal changes can cause re-growth, but under the Easy Choice Membership program, you are covered for a full 2 years.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Thanks to the technology at Elase Medical Spas, almost everybody is a great candidate for laser hair removal. We can treat all skin colors and hair types. Laser hair removal is less effective on clients with red, blonde or grey hair, so we recommend that you come in for a consultation so that we can give you an accurate idea of what results you can expect.
