BE SURE TO TELL US IF YOU ARE PREGNANT! WE WILL NOT LASER PREGNANT WOMEN! You can be lasered if breastfeeding. Some skincare products should not be used while pregnant. IPL and high frequency sound treatments are safe during pregnancy.
Lasers are a controlled manufactured high energy source that is very safe and effective in the hands of a trained technician. Our primary consideration is the safety and effectiveness of your treatment. We have performed thousands of procedures and can answer any of your questions.
There is no way to determine the exact number of treatments necessary to complete the laser process. Many factors go into creating the best treatment protocol for each individual. Hair and skin color, area being treated, texture and density of hair, age, etc.
It is not safe to laser tan skin or on skin that has a spray or artificial tan.
Lasers and IPL are attracted to the pigment in the hair. Yes, we can safely treat dark or ethnic skin with our Yag Laser.
Lasers and IPL are attracted to the pigment in the hair. The smaller the concentration of pigment, the less effective the treatment. For this reason, blondes, white, light red, and grey hair may have little or no response.
The area being laser must be clean shaven within 24 hours of the treatment. Do not apply any creams, ointments, or deodorant to the area. Do not wax, pluck, or nair within 4 weeks of the treatment, the hair must be in the follicle at skin level for the laser to “see” it. No sun exposure, tanning booths, or spray tan for 6 weeks prior to the treatment, we will not laser tan skin.
There are a number of drugs, topical ointments, and physical conditions that will increase skin sensitivity and would cause us to delay or refuse treatment. Among these are certain antibiotics, steroids, retinols, and acne medications. It is best to get your treating physicians approval prior to scheduling an appointment. Be sure to notify us of any health or medical changes prior to your treatments.
