LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQ
What are ELOS Laser Hair Removal treatments like?
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by your practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the
skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Your skin may be
slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
Are laser hair removal treatments painful?
Everyone’s comfort level is different. However, most people describe the sensation of each pulse as a rubber band snapping on their skin. We apply
high quality numbing cream prior to your treatment and use cool air on the treatment site during your treatment to increase your comfort. Most, if not all,
have reported that waxing is a more painful method to remove hair. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities
immediately after treatment.
What precautions should I take throughout this process?
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 2 weeks before and after treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade
before beginning treatment.
How long do treatments take, and how many treatments will I require?
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be
based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone.
Are ELOS laser Hair Removal treatments safe, and are there any side effects?
Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures.
Is hair removal with elōs right for me?
Both men and women can achieve permanent hair reduction on almost all body areas. Only elōs is proven to remove lighter colored hair, on all skin
tones. To achieve a successful outcome on lighter hair colors, more treatments may be needed compared to darker hair colors.
When can I expect to see results?
Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area, and skin tone.
