Maya Skin Clinic offers permanent hair reduction using the most potent, effective technology on the market today .The Advanced Laser Instrument at Maya is very safe and effective. It can treat any part of the body because it is flexible, and it is safe enough to treat skin-of-color patients as well.
Permanent hair reduction is achieved in nearly 80% of individuals treated. The best results are seen after multiple treatments because hair goes through different phases and the hair follicle is most effectively treated and removed during the “growth phase”. You may need a touch up if new hair begins to grow, but this is usually very minor.
what areas of the body are most often treated for laser hair reduction?
how does the sciton laser work?
Hair shafts and hair follicles contain melanin (pigment). The light source of the laser targets the melanin and causes thermal damage to the hair shaft and follicle. This in turn causes the hair shaft and follicle to shut down – all without damaging the surrounding tissue.
By destroying the hair-producing follicle with the laser the medical condition known as ‘folliculitis barbae’ (ingrown hairs) can be improved soon after the first treatment. You can have laser hair reduction even if you have ingrown hairs, as the laser penetrates but doesn’t damage the skin, alleviating your ingrown hair problem.
how many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments will vary person to person. However, the average number of treatments is four to six (4-6). Your aesthetician will discuss the number of treatments you may require and your treatment plan in your consultation. The number of treatments can’t be determined upfront because it depends on how well each patient responds to treatment. Typically, treatment packages consist of six treatments for full hair reduction.
“ I have been treated for laser hair removal by Maya Skin Doctors. My treatments have included under arms, upper lip, and bikini areas. During my initial appointment the doctor took the time to explain in full the treatment, the procedure and what to expect. I felt confident that I was in good hands when I left my consultation. After receiving treatment for under arms I decided to proceed with other treatments. It is such a convenience to not have to shave anymore. I will continue to seek treatments from Maya Skin as I find her caring and professional.”
