Dealing with unwanted hair is a pain, literally and figuratively. Between waxing, tweezing, shaving, electrolysis, and nasty creams, it’s as if areas of your body with unwanted hair are under siege. Laser hair removal at Saltz Spa Vitoria is soooooooo much easier, and it’s permanent!
In laser hair removal, the light energy targets the melanin in the hair down in the follicle, damaging it and stopping future growth. Our Prowave hair removal provides treatment for a wide range of skin types. Plus, its cooled handpiece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reactions commonly seen with other light devices.
Since the laser targets the dark color of the hair, it doesn’t work on gray, blond, or non-colored hair. Also, because each of our hairs can be in different phases of the growth cycle (some aren’t as receptive to laser damage) you will need from three to 10 treatments to really stop the hair from coming back. These are done at four- to eight-week intervals.
There may be mild discomfort during treatment, but most patients tolerate laser hair removal easily. Following the treatment you can return to normal activity right away, but the areas may be a bit red and swollen. This reaction can last up to 48 hours. It will take up to two weeks for the hair to fall out. Between treatments you shouldn’t tweeze or wax hair (because the hair root is the target), but you can shave.
