SEMI PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
Both men and women visit our Durango clinic for laser hair reduction treatments from Cortez, Hesperus, Hermosa, Bayfield and all over Southwest Colorado. Our technicians are highly trained to ensure optimal safety during our laser hair reduction treatments.
HOW IT WORKS
We use a laser system that is safe to use on all skin types. The laser targets the pigmentation in the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. Generally resulting in semi-permanent hair reduction.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Most patients can expect a significant reduction of 80% or better with the remaining body hair becoming finer and softer after multiple treatments. The patient is required to arrive with the area freshly shaven and the treatment time can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour or more depending on the size of the area.
As the hair follicle grows in stages, body hair reduction is a process that requires regular treatments spaced approximately 6 – 8 weeks apart. The success of laser hair reduction depends largely on a patient’s skin and hair type.
For body hair reduction, 7 to 12 sessions every 6-8 weeks and for facial hair reduction, 7 to 12 sessions every 4 to 6 weeks.
Possible temporary mild acne, redness and sensitivity
POST TREATMENT CARE
Apply sunscreen as your skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun. Avoid shaving the treated area for 48 hours after the treatment. Avoid working out for 24 hours following the procedure. Avoid hot showers and abrasive lotions for 24 hours following the treatment.
