permanent hair reduction
Traditional hair removal procedures such as waxing, threading, shaving, and the use of epilators can all potentially leave your skin feeling irritated, red, and lead to unsightly and uncomfortable ingrown hairs. While the cost of using a Discovery Pico+ Laser and IPL hair removal are higher in the short-term, its results are far superior (and ultimately more cost-efficient in the long-term) because these procedures target the roots of the hair and destroy them permanently.
How does it work?
The Discovery Pico+ Laser uses a Ruby wavelength of 694nm laser light pulses that destroy hair follicles precisely by targeting the melanin, leaving the surrounding skin tissue undamaged. The hair follicles’ pigment absorbs the laser’s light pulses, damaging the follicle enough to significantly slow down hair regrowth. At MY Medical Aesthetics, we have both the Laser and an IPL machine for hair removal, so we can cater to your specific needs according to your budget and skin type.
What to do before the treatment?
You will need to shave the area to be treated about two to three days before your appointment. If you recently had a wax, the procedure can be performed only after the hair grows out again.
Is there any downtime?
You may experience some redness in the treated areas for a few hours. Over the next few days, expect the hairs in the treated areas to start to fall out. I would not advise going to a sunny destination right after your hair removal treatment, as your skin may still be sensitive. It’s best to avoid the sun for at least a few days after each treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The majority of my patients have noticed significant hair reduction in their treated areas even after just the first treatment. To achieve optimum results, however, you may need about four to eight treatments, each about six to eight weeks apart.
