Laser Hair Removal
Revive Laser is proud to offer Calgary’s Best Laser Hair Removal treatment utilizing the Fotona SP Dynamis laser, which is one of the most powerful and well-built lasers on the market today. Fotona’s technologies are used by top universities and medical research centers around the world and have over 50 years of research behind them. The Fotona SP’s ND:Yag laser offers fast, comfortable and very effective hair removal and is the only laser wavelength proven to be effective and safe for ALL skin types.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Fotona’s ND:Yag laser effectively targets the melanin (pigment cells) in the hair follicles. The pigment absorbs the energy until the follicle is destroyed, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. These laser treatment sessions are then repeated (on average) 6-8 times, at 4-8 week intervals, to target the attached hairs at each growth cycle (the Anagen hair growth phase), until most of the hair follicles have been destroyed. After several treatments, patients can expect a significant reduction (80-95%) in the thickness and amount of hair. Any hair that is left is typically lighter colored and fine. The hair that was beneath the surface of the skin no longer has a follicle and your body will eject it over the next 2-3 weeks after the treatment. It may look like growing hair, but simply exfoliate or continue shaving until the dead hair has all fallen out.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
You must shower or bath and shave thoroughly within 24 hours prior to your laser treatment. The treatment will be most effective on clean, untanned skin with NO hair growth above the surface. Do not wax, pluck or use hair removal creams within four weeks prior to the appointment, as the hairs have to be attached to the follicle in order the treatment to work. The technician will use cold packs and a Cryo air cooling machine to make the procedure more comfortable. You will feel a warm, prickly feeling as the laser delivers the energy into the hair follicles. This sensation is usually very tolerable. Afterward, your skin may look slightly red or pink and have small, white bumps where the follicles are. Many clients have no noticeable effects afterward. The redness and bumps will fade over the next few hours. Cold packs and an over-the-counter Cortisone cream can help as well if needed. Avoid hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, etc for 24 hours until the redness and bumps have diminished.
