Changes Medical Laser Hair Removal
Orlando's Best Laser Hair Removal Clinic
For some, having an excess of body hair or hair in undesirable places, can damage our confidence and make life difficult and public appearances embarrassing. For a long time, shaving and waxing were the best alternative to avoid unwanted body hair.
With Changes Laser Hair Removal system, you won’t have to compromise results with one wavelength that can only effectively treat a small range of skin types and conditions. That’s because we have a revolutionary technology sequentially combines gold standard wavelengths in one system: the 755 nm Alexandrite laser, 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser and new Intensed Pulsed Light. We use both Candela and Cynosure laser systems for our laser hair removal treatments.
There are many perfectly natural reasons why body and facial hair grows the way it does, where it does - but luckily, a visit to our spa can help eliminate this problem from your life.
Depending on your skin type and health status, laser hair removal treatments can be extremely beneficial. The elimination of unwanted hair can take up to six sessions or more, with intervals of up to a few months between each session. We use state of the art laser technology during sessions, which last from a few minutes up to one hour. Laser hair removal is the most state-of-the-art and high-tech method in removing unwanted hair for longer and even indefinite periods of time.
Treatments are for men and women. We are medically supervised and we have different lasers for all skin types, including tanned skin.
We offer laser hair removal for the following areas:
- Bikini area
Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Everyone’s pain threshold is different and some people say it feels like a slight sting and other people say the sensation is more pronounced. That feeling is only evident at the time we are pulsing the laser. Once the technician stops pulsing the laser, the sensation stops. For those individuals that experience any discomfort, a topical anesthetic can be used. Compared to electrolysis and waxing, most clients should find our process tolerable.
After treatment, there may be some redness but it should only last for a few hours. This is comparable to very mild sunburn. Some aloe vera lotion or a comparable product can be used in these cases.
How much does it cost?
The treatments start at about a few hundred dollars and go up depending on the body area being treated. Clients can pay for the treatments as they are performed or they can take advantage of our monthly specials and package discounts to save money.
How does the laser remove hair?
The laser emits a very specific light beam that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or "turned on,” for a fraction of a second. The duration of the pulses have been carefully determined so that enough energy is absorbed by the hair follicle to disable it but not so much that excess heat is transferred to the surrounding skin, resulting in safe and effective hair removal.
What is the advantage of using a laser?
Lasers are precise instruments that can be adjusted to the exact parameters that will specifically disable the hair follicle. The laser uses a wide beam that treats hundreds of hair follicles at once instead of treating hair-by-hair like electrolysis. Because of this, large areas such as legs, arms, or a back can be treated in a short amount of time. You will see results that last far longer than tweezing, waxing, shaving, chemical depilation, or other temporary treatments.
How long will it take?
Because the laser treats many hair follicles at a time, facial areas (lip, chin, etc.) can be treated in five to ten minutes. Small body areas (underarms, bikini, etc.) take less than 15 - 20 minutes. Larger body areas (full back, legs, arms, etc.) usually take about 30 minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area and the density of the hair.
What happens to the skin after the treatment?
Within several minutes of the treatment, the treated area may become slightly red. Some experience a sensation similar to mild sunburn. This reaction subsides within a few minutes to a few hours and the area returns to normal. Since the laser does not burn or cut the skin in any way, no bandages are necessary. You are able to reapply your make- up, return to work, and continue with your normal daily activities.
How many treatments will I need?
The laser works by disabling hairs in the active growth cycle at the time of treatment. Since most hair will be in the dormant stage during treatment, an average of five treatments is usually necessary to disable a majority of the follicles during their growth cycle. Because everyone is different and we all have different hormone levels and medical influences, some people may need additional treatments to reach their desired goals.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
The lasers we use have received FDA approval for "permanent hair reduction.” Once we disable the blood supply feeding the hair follicles those particular follicles will not grow back, they are permanently destroyed. However, not all of the hair follicles on our body are active and as we get older, inactive hairs will become active. The laser will not keep those hairs from becoming active but once they are, we can treat them successfully with the laser
