This simple and non-invasive procedure targets highly concentrated light to a specific depth, ends results permanently destroy hair follicles to remove unwanted hair. The procedure is effective on hair with pigment and therefore, may not be suitable for blonde, grey or true red hair. Most clients see sustained hair reduction after 6 to 8 treatments. This extremely popular procedure is a safe, effective and speedy way for removing unwanted hair down to the follicle. Skin in the area treated may be red for 24hrs, but is easily treated with aloe vera. Sun exposure in areas treated should be avoided for one week prior and post treatment.

How does it work?

Laser hair removal uses a process called selective photothermolysis. Heat from a laser destroys cells that have a lot of pigment (color). Since dark hair has a lot of pigment, it absorbs the most heat. Hair transfers heat to the hair follicles and destroys them, so hair can’t grow.

A hair follicle has to be in its anagen, or growth, stage for the procedure to work. Follicles are in different stages at different times, so most people need multiple laser treatments.

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Anyone with extra body hair can have laser hair removal. It’s usually a cosmetic procedure. It may improve your appearance or self-image. Many people also prefer not having to shave regularly.

Laser hair removal is most effective for people with thick, dark hair and light skin. The contrast between skin color and hair color makes it easier for the hair to absorb heat. It might not work as well for people with dark skin or hair that’s blonde, gray, white or red.

  • How do I prepare for my peel?
    Lush MedSpa recommends that you avoid aggressive exfoliation for 2 days prior to your procedure, that you refrain from waxing in the treated area for 5 days prior and that use cease the use of retinal at least 1 week prior.
  • How do I know which peel is right for me?
    We offer a variety of peels, each with unique solutions depending on your individual needs. Prior to scheduling a peel, we recommend you get a pre-peel consultation to determine which peel is best for your individual needs.
  • Does it hurt?
    uring the treatment, it is common to feel mild stinging or burning while the solution is in contact with the skin. Following a peel, your skin may appear red, feel tight or be mildly irritated. Collectively, most clients report only mild discomfort during and after the procedure. For more intensive chemical peels, moderate swelling and dryness may occur and in rare cases blistering.
  • When should I expect to see results from my peel?
    In the case of many peels, you will see noticeable improvements within the first few days after treatment. However, to achieve significant results, multiple treatments may be required.
  • What do I do when my skin starts peeling?
    We recommend you do not pick or pull at the dead skin and allow the skin to slough off naturally at its own pace. For more rapid peeling you can choose to forgo the use of moisturizers; however, if this becomes too uncomfortable moisturize to your comfort level. Once the peeling slows you can reintroduce moisture ideally with a product containing Hyaluronic acid.
