What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Duo Dental Spa uses innovative laser energy to destroy hair follicles and achieve permanent hair reduction nearly anywhere on your face or body. The treatment is long-lasting, painless, and can save you time and money in the long run. 

It works to destroy hair follicles by heating them, allowing treated hair to fall out during the various hair-growth phases.

Which areas does laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair within your:

  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Thighs
  • Legs
  • Calves 

Your Duo Dental Spa specialist can use a laser to remove hair from anywhere except the areas near your eyes. 

Is laser hair removal right for me?

While laser hair removal works best for people with dark hair and lighter skin, it’s effective for all skin types. To determine which method is best for you, your specialist examines your skin in areas containing undesirable hair. They tailor each laser treatment to your unique needs.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

Before you undergo laser hair removal at Duo Dental Spa, it's important to prepare properly. Avoid sunless tanning creams, unprotected sun exposure, and tanning beds before your scheduled appointment. 

Steer clear of other hair-removal methods, including waxing, plucking, shaving, and using electrolysis, but shave the treatment area the day before your visit if asked to.

What happens during laser hair removal?

During treatment, you relax comfortably and wear goggles to protect your eyes from the laser. The Duo Dental Spa team numbs target areas if needed to maximize comfort. They use a small device to emit laser energy into the hair follicles. Your session may last just a few minutes for smaller areas and up to an hour or more for larger treatment areas.

What should I expect after laser hair removal?

After laser hair removal, the affected areas may be swollen, sensitive, red, or tender,  but these common side effects are temporary. Multiple treatment sessions ensure the best results, as laser energy must penetrate hair follicles during specific periods of the hair growth phase.

During the next few days and weeks, treated hair begins to fall out. To achieve the best outcome you might need 2-6 treatment sessions spaced apart over time.

Most laser hair removal technologies on the market use one of two wavelengths to target the hair follicle:

  • The Alexandrite wavelength at 755 nm, which is ideal for treating skin tones 1, 2 and 3 (fair and light skin tones). It is highly absorbed in melanin and is therefore not safe for use on darker skin tones.
  • The Nd:YAG wavelength at 1064 nm, which is ideal for treating skin tones 4, 5 and 6 (4 being tanned skin and 5 and 6 darker skin tones) as the absorption by melanin is much lower than with the Alexandrite wavelength. This wavelength is highly absorbed in oxyhemoglobin, which affects the blood supply to the hair follicle.

BLEND X technology is used to power the SPLENDOR X solid-state laser device. With this powerful, fast and versatile device, treatment providers can synchronize Alexandrite and Nd:YAG wavelengths to customize treatment options for patients with different skin and hair type combinations.
