Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways to permanently reduce unwanted hair. It works on most any part of the body and can be used to treat nearly anyone 15 years of age or older. Men are generally interested in reducing hair on the back, chest, and neck areas, whereas women tend to focus on embarrassing facial hair, underarms, legs, and bikini line areas. Teens most often desire to target the underarms and legs. Your treatment program is based on Transform Ideal Hair™, the and personalized to meet the exact requirements of your skin, hair color, and age, as well as the area of the body being treated and the goals you have discussed with your Transform™ professional consultant.
Getting started with your treatments begins with the Transform Ideal Analysis™ for hair removal, which involves identifying your skin type by the universally accepted Fitzpatrick Scale and the use of the chromotest device to give us the most accurate measurement of the color of your skin. This will allow us to customize your treatment plan using the optimal duration and intensity of laser treatments or light based treatments. Because individual hairs grow in different phases at one time and there is no way of knowing exactly how many hairs are in the most optimal reduction phase. It is for this reason multiple treatments are necessary to obtain optimal results. On the average, our clients receive approximately five – seven treatments over the course of thirteen to nineteen months.
Laser or Light Based hair removal is a simple process. The area may or may not be prepared with a gel and a specialized laser or light based handset is administered over the area. The light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in your hair follicles. Two to three weeks later, the hair falls out. Re-growth is permanently disabled in follicles that were in the active growth phase during treatment. Follow-up visits are timed to coincide with anticipated hair growth. *Compliance with the interval schedule of your treatments is of the utmost importance for achieving optimal results and missing appointments may prolong your treatment plan. Rarely, some individuals may possess certain hormonal factors which may prolong or impede optimal results – your consultant will discuss these factors with you. Transform™ uses only up to date, state-of-the-art FDA approved technology and our lasers and light based equipment provides an array of applications and allows us to treat many conditions and skin types.
