Almost everyone experiences some unwanted hair growth. For teens, unwanted hair is an embarrassing flaw. In adulthood, care in grooming is important for social and business reasons. In our older years, unwanted hair can appear in the most unexpected places. Removing unwanted hair is a high priority for most people.
Shaving is a constant hassle, while chemical hair removers can cause skin damage and produce only temporary results. Electrolysis for permanent hair removal is expensive and time consuming. Waxing is very painful and the hair soon grows back. Laser hair removal works well, but the process is slow, due to the small surfaces covered by the laser. Palomar Pulsed Light Systems use light, like lasers, but cover a much larger area, allowing faster coverage of the skin at lower cost.
Permanent Hair Removal by Laser vs. Palomar Pulsed Light
The Palomar Pulsed Light System emits pulses of strong light, tuned to exactly the wavelength needed to heat the pigment in hair follicles, loosening the hair and disabling the follicle. It’s similar to laser, but its much larger treatment window covers more area on the skin and eliminates the slow, tedious process encountered in laser treatments. The shorter time required lowers the cost for each treatment.
Hair can be removed using Palomar Pulsed Light Systems from any part of the body, except around the eyes. The upper lip, chin, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest and back can all be treated. Since the treatment only works on active hair follicles, it can only be effective on a portion of the hair follicles in an area. Since not all follicles are active at once, successive treatments, at intervals, will disable all hair follicles for a permanent solution to unwanted hair.
At our Twin Cities medical spa, we use a state-of-the-art Palomar StarLux Intense Pulsed Light System for permanent laser hair removal. Claudia Miller, our Skin Care Specialist and nurse, has advanced training from Palomar on the use of this system, and has even acted as a field trainer, teaching doctors and nurses how to use these hair removal systems.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Your skin care specialist will move the Palomar handpiece over your skin, while it sends out light pulses. The light, tuned to the correct wavelength, creates heat in the hair follicle, disabling it and loosening the hair. You’ll hear a tone for each pulse and may feel a mild snapping sensation in the covered area. A cooling system in the handpiece removes all excess heat. Depending on the size of the area, treatments may last from 10 to 30 minutes.
After the treatment, you will feel a mild sensation like a sunburn, which will pass within 24 hours. If it’s troublesome for you, icepacks can ease the discomfort. Hair will be expelled from the follicles over the next 7 to 30 days. As other follicles become active, new hair will grow from them. Follow-up treatments will disable those follicles. In most cases, four or five treatments at intervals will remove all hair from the treated area as seen in the above before and after photos.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
The cost is primarily determined by the treated body area, with larger areas, such as back and chest, costing more than smaller areas, such as chin and underarms. Your skin tone, hair color and hair thickness may be a factor for the price. Some people need more treatment sessions than others and that will increase the total cost.
As the leading medical spa in the Twin Cities, we have been helping thousands of clients get rid of unwanted body hair. We make this service highly affordable by offering package deals that keep the total price low.
