LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Did you know that laser hair removal is the most popular procedure in Orlando? At Sanctuary Salon & Med Spa we specialize in permanent hair removal and are unequalled in excellence from our superior training to our customer service.
Choose the right laser for your skin. Do your homework before you decide to do laser hair removal. Many spas use IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which is a light device and is not efficient and not recommended for hair removal. The success of Laser Hair Removal depends on the right laser being used. Choose an Alex like the Gentle Max Pro from Candela or Light Sheer Diode by Lumenius for lighter skin or the 1064 Yag Laser from Gentle Max Pro for dark skin types like Hispanic, Asians, Indians, Pakistani’s or African Americans.
Sun is not your best friend. STAY OUT OF THE SUN! Tanning should be avoided at all costs. This includes no tanning beds or self-tanning products! Your skin should be free of any cuts, rashes and infections fungal or viral. You will need to take anti viral pills like Valtrax if you have a history of cold sores.
Prepare your skin. Share the area the night before to avoid razor irritation. Make sure you are not on any photosensitive medicines. Read the labels of your medications. If you are not sure please check with your Doctor. If you are on photosensitive medications you should wait a few weeks before getting laser done. Stop using Retin A a few days prior and a few days post laser.
What to expect during treatment. Keep your skin clean and free of makeup if treating your face. Some describe the sensation as when you snap a rubber band against your skin during the treatment. If you are getting full body laser you may want to split your treatments into 2 sessions to avoid discomfort.
Have realistic expectations. The number of sessions will depend on your hair density, genetics and color of the skin. Darker color skin may need a few more sessions because of hormones and circulation than other parts of your body. You will begin to notice hair reduction within 3 to 4 treatments. Important: You have to be consistent! Keep your appointments as we are trying to target hair in its active stage.
Please be sure to apply sun protection at all times. SPF 30 and higher is recommended. Avoid heavy exercise routines, perfumes, deodorants and hot showers for 24 hours. Apply aloe gel to keep the skin calm and free of irritation. Do not wax or thread in between laser hair removal. Only shaving or trimming is permitted.
By following all of the above instructions you will help to insure not only that your results will be very effective but you will be happy and worth the time, energy and the investment you have made to get rid of your unwanted superfluous hair.
