Hair Removal


How much time does it take to remove hair with a laser?
Everybody has a different body with genetically programmed hair follicles. Some follicles are in what’s known as an active stage while some follicles remain dormant.  The only follicles that can be treated with the laser are those in the active state.  That is why it is essential that multiple treatments take place as to try and catch as many follicles as possible in their active state.  These treatments are usually spaced one to three months apart.  The number of treatments is dependent on the individual.

The Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery uses the eMax Laser System by Syneron.  What sets eMax apart from many lasers is its large spot size which makes the treatment faster and more efficient.  The eMax’s also uses a combination of Radio Frequency (RF) and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) combined technology.  These two technologies work simultaneously to help maximize the removal of  an active hair follicle’s continued ability to grow.

Does the eMax Laser actually remove the Hair?
When it comes to the term, “Laser Hair Removal” really means the preventing of a hair follicle’s ability to regrow hair.  Unlike waxing which pulls the hair out of the follicle where it will likely grow back, Laser Hair Removal helps prevent the follicle from regrowing hair.
