Laser Hair Removal

Waxing, shaving and depilation of unwanted hair are time consuming and expensive. Lifetime hair removal expenditures for these services far outweigh those for laser hair reduction treatments. Using the latest in lasers, ESANA MedSpa employs cutting-edge LightSheer® Diode laser hair removal technology to reduce unwanted hair.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Laser therapy can effectively reduce dark hair growth on most skin types. It is most effective on dark hair with light skin. As skin color and hair color contribute to the variation in efficacy, a laser hair removal consultation is needed to determine how good a candidate you may be. It takes an average of seven laser hair removal treatments to reduce the hair effectively but all individuals are different. Laser treatment is not effective on red, gray, blonde or white hair.

Pigmented hair needs to be present for the energy to be absorbed, therefore shaving is the only way to manage the hair between laser hair removal treatments. There should not be any sun exposure of the area being treated during the entire duration of treatment. Minor changes in your skin tone can affect the absorption of energy and increase the risk of superficial burns. There are some absolute contraindications to laser therapy including Accutane use within the past six months or pregnancy. Some medications can also make your skin sensitive to light and may interfere with the ability to treat you. A thorough medical history taken at the time of laser hair removal consultation at our CT medspa will review these.
