LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive medical procedure that removes unwanted hair through the use of concentrated light beams, i.e. lasers. These light beams are absorbed by the hair's pigment, or melanin. In this absorption process, the light energy converts to heat which ultimately damages the hair follicle. Damaging the hair follicle results in delayed hair growth and as the follicles are weakened over a number of sessions, the hair stops growing back altogether.
While this is a great long-term topical solution to unwanted hair growth, if you suspect your hair growth is hormone related, we always recommend consulting with your doctor to receive additional treatment options.

THINKING OF USING A NUMBING CREAM?
Some clients opt for a topical numbing cream to make their lasering experience more comfortable. We recommend Ebanel's 5% Lidocaine Topical Numbing Cream Maximum Strength. While the numbing cream can be used anywhere, we only recommend using it on small areas.
Check out the videos below for tips on numbing cream application!
PRO TIPS: While the bottle says to apply 20-25 minutes before treatment, we typically recommend to apply closer to an hour before your schedule appointment. This allows for a greater numbing effect for laser hair removal.
As shown in the video, we advise you apply a thick layer to the treatment area–do not rub it in. Like the client said, "lather it like you're icing a cake."
Once you've applied the cream, it's also important to insulate the area so as to prevent the cream from drying out. We recommend using saran wrap to keep moisture in, as shown in this video.
If you any additional questions or doubts on how to apply it, don't hesitate to contact us!
