Laser Hair Removal
Get to the "root" of the problem
Almost everyone has unwanted hair somewhere on their body.
Unfortunately, traditional hair removal routines can be tedious, painful and expensive over time. Shaving may last a day, waxing a couple of weeks, but none of them last forever —and therein lies the true beauty of laser hair removal.
Fountain of Youth Medi Spa uses a laser hair removal device which has implemented revolutionary technology combines two optimal wavelengths in one system: the 755-nm Alexandrite laser and the 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser. Utilizing one system optimizes your comfort and safety throughout the procedure
To eliminate hair, the laser emits gentle pulses of energy that pass through the skin to the hair follicle. This energy is then absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it so that hair can never grow there again
Laser hair removal can be applied to all areas of the body and on all types of skin (even tanned or dark skin).
The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Patients often say it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
We believe in thorough education for our clients. Many hair removal centers only offer one type of laser and never mention what they are missing.
The value of the 755-nm wavelength laser is that it has high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results.
The value of the high-powered 1064-nm Nd:YAG is that it is the safest wavelength for darker skin types and tanned skin.
Typically patients will see results in 4 – 6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone, hair color and several other factors. Your doctor or practitioner will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.
