Laser hair removal can prove to quite effective on dark haired individuals. Those with light blonde, light red, white or grey hair may find this treatment does not affect their follicles in the same way as it does on their dark haired counterparts. The laser cannot detect the lighter follicle against the skin color which is the reason why lasers are ineffective for hair removal in such cases.

Apart from these hair colors, laser hair removal has 80-99% chance of permanently reducing the growth of hair for people with a combination of dark hair and light skin. Hair grows in cycles. The hair at the time of treatment needs to be at a certain growth stage for the laser to detect and penetrate the hair follicle. If you need to know how effective is laser hair removalyou have to understand that in order for the procedure to remove every visible hair, the treatment needs to be carried out till every strand of hair in the treated area has grown out. This is the reason why a successful treatment extends from 4 to 6 sessions,in order to catch the emerging hair from everygrowth cycle.

The laser hair removal process works by sending a beam of laser light to a group of hair follicles with enough power to disable or destroy the root while not harming the surrounding skin. The laser beam finds the hair follicles by targeting melanin (the substance that gives skin and hair color). It is important to note that the laser process will not work well on people that have red, white, gray or blond hair.

Contrary to statements made by those unfamiliar with this technology, when laser hair removal is properly performed, it is effective for the vast majority of candidates. Non-responders are primarily limited to those with blond, white, gray or red hair. The new technology is capable of 80-99% permanent reduction for ALL skin types, male and female, and for ALL body areas (except around the eyes). The number of sessions needed to achieve these results can vary from person to person depending on many factors such as age, skin type, amount of hair, hair color, hair texture, etc. In any event, if we agree to treat you, we stand behind our Guarantee.

Yes absolutely. Even after one treatment you will notice that most of your ingrowns will be gone. Within a few weeks to a few months, depening on the severity of the scarring and pigmentation caused by ingrowns, the skin appearance will be improved overall. The bumps will be getting smaller, the area will be smoother and the color of your skin will be even.

Prices are usually based on area per session or packages of 4 to 6 sessions. Since most people do need at least 4 sessions, buying a package offer will be more cost effective and discounts will be applied up to 30%. However, even our single treatment prices are very competitive. Multiple area and multiple treatment discounts are also available and can be discussed during your free consultation.

Yes, absolutely. Most dark skin types, especially African Americans, believe they cant get laser treatment. This was true five (5) years ago — not today. Advanced Derma-Laser has treated literally thousands of African Americans clients over the years and with incredible and permanent results.

Yes absolutely. Even after one treatment you will notice that most of your ingrowns will be gone. Within a few weeks to a few months, depening on the severity of the scarring and pigmentation caused by ingrowns, the skin appearance will be improved overall.

If you have an underlying hormonal issue causing the hair growth, you won’t see good results from laser hair removal until you get it under control. Your body will be busy developing new hair and regardless of how much of the “current” hair is destroyed, it will be replaced by new hair. You will need to stop treatment and obtain medication to stabilize your hormonal levels. When the imbalance is under control, you can start your laser treatments and achieve excellent and stable results on the body. The facial area will require “touchup” treatments every three (3) to six (6) months throughout life to remain hair free.

Many laser offices will agree to treat you. NOT US. We will not touch areas where the hair is very fine and sparse. Some laser hair removal clients have reported an activation of hair growth on areas where peach fuzz hair was treated. You don’t want this and neither do we. It will be more challenging to get rid of laser activated hair! If you have coarse, dense hairs, laser is the best technology for eliminating it. However, if you have fine and sparse hair (peach fuzz), especially on the face and upper arms, these hairs are very sensitive to all hair removal methods, including laser treatments, and instead of being destroyed, hairs appear to be invigorated! We do not know the cause of this; there are no scientific studies documenting it; but we have seen it. If you are not sure you can be treated, come in for a complimentary evaluation. We will always give you our honest opinion and the benefit of our extensive experience.

It depends on several factors: Thick hairs respond better than thin hair, darker hair respond faster than the lighter ones. Six sessions of laser treatment for dark thick hair may induce about 80 to 90% of hair reduction. Legs are an example of dark thick hairs. On bikini area dark thick hair may respond to 6 sessions of laser hair removal with up to 90% hair growth reduction. Lighter and finer hair on bikini area may have only about 60% reduction in growth after 6 sessions of laser treatment.

Underarms, chest and upper arms typically produce about 75-85% of hair growth reduction with 6 sessions. The male back and female face are more challenging and can take a few additional treatments. Of course results can vary from person to person and you could get better results than others.

The average waiting period between treatments is 4 to 8 weeks. Appointments should be scheduled within two (2) weeks of seeing hair growth. Observe the new hair growth and if you are uncertain, stop by our office and your technician will advise you.

You will see results after the VERY FIRST treatment. You will have fewer hairs and they will be finer and weaker. Your skin will be smoother and your hair pores less visible. The results will become more impressive with each successive treatment.

Facial Hair: Typically, facial treatments are scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart. This is usually when you startto see new hair growth.

Lower Legs: Legs are the best area for laser hair removal. Within 3 treatments you will achieve smoothand ingrown-free legs with at least 50% hair reduction. The first 3 treatments are generally scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart but after these initial treatments, you may not notice newgrowth for 8 to 12 weeks.

Male Back and Chest: Initial treatments are generally scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart, but from our experience, afterfour (4) treatments, you can wait approximately three months between treatments.

Underarms, Bikini, Upper Legs: Treatments should be scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart.

he treated area will be cleared of the majority of visible hair during the treatment. Remaining treated hair will shed in approximately two weeks. Depending on the area, the skin will remain clear and smooth for 4 to 6 weeks before seeing fine hairs starting to grow again. Repeating the sessions on schedule, the area will remain hair free throughout the entire multiple session procedure. You will look completely clear and smooth.

Immediately following a laser treatment, clients should experience reddened and puffy skin. This is termed follicular edema and resembles goose bumps. It feels somewhat like a mild sunburn. This effect disappears in a few minutes to a few hours. In the hands of an experienced laser technician using the right equipment, clients will not experience any damage to their skin. Many clients schedule treatments during their lunch break and return to their offices with no visible indications.

Laser hair removal will not work on white, gray, light red or light blond hair.

Females who are experiencing PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) may experience poor results unless they receive medical support along with the laser treatment. These female clients can achieve excellent results over the entire body, but to remain hair free on the face, “touchup”treatments are required every three (3) to six (6) months throughout life.

As a rule, multiple treatment sessions are necessary to obtain optimal results. This is due, in large part, to the fact that LHR is most effective on hair which is in the anagen hair growth phase. Hair grows in cycles and not all of the hairs are in anagen at any given time. The combination of light skin and dark hair is ideal for LHR.

Yes, absolutely. We can customize your treatments according to your needs and expectations. You can thin and reduce the amount of your hair in any area while still leaving a certain amount.

Lasers cannot target red, white, gray or blond hair and most people have multiple colors of hairs. Laser technology provides for 90% (give or take) permanent reduction in hair growth. We cannot say permanent removal without acknowledging the possibility of the remaining 10%.

The FDA defines permanent hair reduction as:

The long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regime, which may include several sessions. The number of hairs re-growing must be stable over time greater than the duration of the complete growth cycle of hair follicles, which varies from four to twelve months according to body location. Permanent hair reduction does not necessarily imply the elimination of all hairs in the treatment area. http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/consumer/laserfacts.html

Yes, absolutely. In fact, if you are prone to ingrowns, the only solution is laser hair removal for a perfectly smooth and ingrown free skin for LIFE. We have extensive experience treating even the most challenging and difficult cases of severe neck and facial ingrowns with 100% success. Laser treatments will start your pigmented skin healing after the first treatment and your skin color will be evenly toned within a few months.

I had some hormone tests done which showed my testosterone is relatively high. As a result, I was sent for a ‘synacthen stimulation’ test.

Do not tweeze, bleach or wax for at least three weeks before treatment. Shaving is completely safe. You will not grow more hair if you shave. In any event, if you are worried about shaving, you are getting laser treatment! You can shave two days before treatment. Do not shave the same day of your treatment because your technician should be able to see the hairy areas for treatment. After the treatment, if hair grows you can safely shave. On some parts of the body, hair will shed within two weeks and skin will be be hair free 4 to 6 weeks.
