We provide laser hair removal solution for unwanted hair anywhere on the body using the state of the art LightPod Neo® from Aerolase®. This high-powered 1064 nm laser can treat any skin type. At Aria Aesthetics and Wellness, your safety is our primary concern and you can have confidence knowing that all laser treatments are performed by a certified nurse practitioner.
WHAT IT IS:
Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction that can eliminate hair anywhere you normally pluck, tweeze, wax, or shave. The LightPod Neo® laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. Upon absorption, the energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Disabling the follicle prevents new hair growth.
Typically, people experience a 85 percent reduction in hair in the treated areas. It is not effective at removing red, light blonde, or gray hair. The laser is safe to use on all skin colors.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Your skin will be cleaned with a gentle cleanser. You will be provided eye protection to wear during the procedure. A small hand piece or “wand” is placed against your skin and the laser is activated. The hand piece is repositioned and the laser is activated again. The size or the area treated will determine the number of laser activations, or “pulses,” required. There is minimal pain associated with the procedure and at most will feel similar to a rubber band snapping lightly against your skin.
Our experts at Aerolase® recommend a series of five to seven treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.
AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE:
Immediately after the treatment the skin will look pink and slightly swollen, similar to sunburn, and raised red bumps (similar to mosquito bites) will appear. This will subside within 72 hours and the skin will return to normal. Occasionally, a patient will have temporary pigment changes, blistering or scabbing. In the unlikely event of blistering, we recommend keeping the area moist with Neosporin® ointment.
