How Laser Hair Removal Works
At all times your body hair is going through three distinct phases: active growth, regression and resting. The Cheveux laser system works by emitting a long wavelenght of focused light-energy. This energy is absorbed directly into the melanin inside the hair shaft. When the hair is treated during an active growth stage, the light-energy will cause a disabling of the hair re-growth mechanisms. Within seven to ten days after each treatment session, the haris that were treated during the active growth stage will begin to shed. Significantly less hair will grow back with each treatment. Over time most patients will notice the treatment area to be more smooth. The Cheveux laser system will help you achieve your ultimate goal of permanent hair reduction.

 

What can you expect?
The length of a laser treatment may be anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. It is important to know that the hairs in an active growth phase (referred to as anagen) are most affected by the laser. As all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, more than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best result.

The laser treatment itself may cause some discomfort. Most patients tolerate the procedure well, but because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.

The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. Side effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, desired clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away. We will be happy to tell you more about your treatment, possible side effects and what results you can expect during your consultation.
