Lasers allow for treatment and correction of many medical and aesthetic conditions. There is typically very little downtime associated with these procedures. Please see below for additional information on these procedures.
Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment within hairs to produce about a 90% reduction of hairs, some clients will experience full reduction. The lasers we use at Avalon Medical Spa are safe for all skin types and colors and is adjusted to the ideal setting for each person. Laser hair removal can greatly improve ingrown hairs and irritation from shaving. Speak to one of our clinicians to see if you would be a good candidate for laser hair removal. We treat both men and women and all body areas.
Laser hair removal remains the #1 cosmetic laser treatment performed in the United States. Underarms, facial hair, bikini, legs, back and other body part areas are easily eliminated using the latest in diode laser hair reduction technologies. For permanent hair removal, the hair follicle’s bulb, bulge, and papilla must be destroyed using joules of light energy.
IPL laser hair removal requires a target (melanin) to see the actual hair within the follicle so it is not as effective with blonde and white (gray) hair individuals. The number of treatments vary based upon the hair growth cycles of various body locations and is safe and comfortable to the patient.
The reason for multiple treatments is due to the target of the laser hair treatment being melanin, only actively growing hair contains melanin in the bulb and germinal matrix of the hair. The growth cycles for hair are Anagen (active growth), Telogen (no growth), and Cathagen (hair is ejected) stage of development. Lasers only effectively treat hair in its Anagen Phase: multiple treatments are required. To schedule or inquire, call 774-202-7049 or click below:
