How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Laser Hair Removal is a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair, with great results. Laser Hair Removal applies precisely controlled pulses of energy (electrical and light, with cooling), reaching into the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.

What does laser hair removal feel like?

Each pulse, which lasts less than a second, produces a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a quick, light pinch.

Is laser hair removal suitable for everyone?

At Gainesville MedSpa we customize your laser hair removal treatment to exactly match your hair and skin color and type. As long as there is some color in your hair (even blond hair has enough color), then our laser hair removal system will be effective.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

The energies used by Gainesville MedSpa (electrical and light) are both commonly used in a range of medical and cosmetic procedures that have proven to be safe. Most people experience no side effects at all, though few exhibit some short-term local reddening of the surrounding skin. You can return to your regular activities immediately after laser hair removal treatment, although it is advisable to keep the skin protected from exposure to direct sunlight for a short period of time.

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

Our laser hair removal technology destroys hairs that are in the active growth phase, so repeat treatments will be needed to target hair that was not affected at the time of previous laser hair removal treatments. Normally six1 laser hair removal treatments are recommended to get the optimum results and our written guarantee.

What results can I expect from laser hair removal?

At the end of the laser hair removal treatment program you can expect your skin to remain smooth.

What areas can be treated with skin rejuvenation?

Treatments utilizing Skin Rejuvenation technology can be used on any part of the skin. Skin rejuvenation treatments are especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck and chest.

What results can I expect with skin rejuvenation?

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries after your skin rejuvenation treatment. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother, with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sunspots. Many people see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.

What is a Skin Rejuvenation treatment like?

Each skin rejuvenation treatment takes approximately 20 to 40 minutes. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected. Immediately following a skin rejuvenation treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of time.

These treatments are alternated with Microdermabrasion treatments for safer, more rapid skin renewal.

How soon will I see results from my skin rejuvenation treatment?

After your first skin rejuvenation treatment, your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Six skin rejuvenation treatments are performed for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional treatments.

Who are the best candidates for Skin Rejuvenation treatments?

The best candidates for Skin Rejuvenation treatments are:

People who suffer and experience flushing and redness of their skin.

People with early aging changes and sun damage, who desire healthier more youthful-appearing skin.

People who don't want to take time off to heal from laser resurfacing or chemical peels.

Active people who don't want the treatments to interfere with social or outdoor activities.
