– Please tell us about what types of laser hair removal do you specialize in?
Santé Laser uses the FDA approved Gentle Max Pro made by Syneron – Candela, a dual-wavelength laser technology that produces both 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG energies. This powerful dual capability allows us to provide permanent hair reduction for all skin tones (fair, tan, and dark). The system incorporates a patented dynamic cooling device (DCD™) that protects the epidermis by applying cooling cryogen before and after every laser pulse and helps to reduce the risk of scars and pigmentation.
– Our expert came in for the underarms and areola laser hair removal – how long does it work?
The laser is a beam of light that targets and heats your hair follicles so they can no longer produce hair. The light emitted by the laser is absorbed by the skin and converted into heat. The surrounding skin is unaffected while the hair follicles become disabled.
– How long does it take?
Treatment for underarms and areola takes less than 15 mins.
– How should you prepare for this kind of procedure?
No tanning (including tanning beds and tanning sprays) for 3 weeks. No tweezing, waxing, bleaching, or epilating for 4-6 weeks. Area of treatment should be freshly shaved. No make-up, creams, or perfume. No antibiotics for 2 weeks. Must disclose all medications used prior to being treated.
– Are there any precautions?
We do not treat pregnant and/or breastfeeding woman. Clients who are taking photo-sensitive medication (for example, antibiotics) cannot be treated. Clients with chronic diseases have to disclose their health issue and each will be review individually.
– How should you treat skin after the procedure and what are the do’s and don’t’s?
Avoid deodorant and make-up for 24 hours if face and underarms were treated. Avoid hot tubs, exercise, and other activities that raise your body temperature for 24 hours. Avoid prolonged sun exposure for 2 weeks. Use sunscreen. No antibiotics for 2 weeks. We recommend exfoliating the area in 10-14 days after the treatment.
– Our expert also received face rejuvenation laser – it was done using the same machine and the laser – how does this procedure work and how is it different from the other procedure?
This heat-based procedure is an exceptional new way to get rid of wrinkles and tighten skin. It promotes collagen growth in the deepest layers of the skin by using deep penetrating wavelengths of laser light, making skin firmer and smoother. This long-lasting effect continues to improve over time.
(We laser used is 1064 nm Nd:YAG. The energy and technic used both different than those for hair reduction.)
– How many times on average does it take to get a full result?
Laser genesis – We recommend at least 4-6 treatments once a month.
Laser hair removal – about 9 treatments to see up to 90% hair reduction.
– Do you need to touch up after treatment was done multiple times?
Touch-ups will vary for each individual. Most common is once or twice a year after a series of treatments.
How should one treat skin to keep results longer and better in-between or after procedures?
Laser genesis – keep your body hydrated, use moisturizer, apply and re-apply sunscreen every day.
Laser hair removal – follow do and don’t after the treatment.
