At aFresh™ Med Spa, we select the appropriate laser for your skin and hair type allowing us to treat patients of all skin tones and types including African American, Asian, Indian, Hispanic and Caucasian. Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any area of the body for men and women – from small areas such as the upper lip, underarms, bikini area, chin, neck, and face, to larger areas such as arms, chest, back, and legs. Laser hair removal is non-invasive, and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin.
What does the treatment entail?
We recommend that you come to the office with a fresh shave of the area being treated. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color. A cold gel is applied to protect the outer layers of your skin and to help the laser light penetrate the skin. When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory ointment, or cold water to ease any discomfort.
What are the possible side effects?
