Laser hair removal you never thought possible.

Laser hair removal uses a combination of heat and energy to destroy the hair follicle without harming the skin around it. The Aerolase Neo Elite laser offers a uniquely pain-free and gentle way to get rid of any unwanted hair. Most clients who have been treated by other lasers say that being treated with the Aerolase Neo Elite is much gentler and more pleasant. During laser hair removal, the hair must be in its growing phase in order to be successfully destroyed. To ensure that all hair is effectively removed during the growing phase, you will receive a series of treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. This will successfully ensure maximum results.

BEFORE & AFTERS
 

HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

This can vary depending on skin and hair colour, but generally, 4 to 6 sessions are required for 80% clearance or greater, which is considered very good in aesthetic laser medicine. After that, an annual maintenance treatment is recommended.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD TREATMENTS BE COMPLETED?

For PFB, it is recommended that one treatment be completed every 2 to 3 weeks.

For LHR, it is recommended that one treatment be completed every 4 to 8 weeks depending on the area being treated.

CONTRAINDICATIONS
 

  • Those who are pregnant

  • Those who are sunburned or have irritated skin in the sites to be treated.

  • Those who are exhibiting unidentified skin conditions in the sites are to be treated.

  • Those who have healed poorly after other types of laser treatments.

  • Clients prone to skin discoloration.

  • Clients who are taking photosensitizing medication, such as Accutane, should consider discontinuing the medication 6 months before treatment.

  • Patients who are taking topical Retin-A, patients should wait 2 weeks before treatment.

Aside from purely red ones.ie. angiomas; other lesions should first be checked by a dermatologist. Some patients will not respond as well as others, and one factor is hair colour. Some hairs don’t contain enough melanin to absorb the necessary energy to destroy or damage a follicle, and this is often the case with a light-coloured hair (i.e., blonde, gray, red). Another common factor as to why a patient may not respond well is strong hair regrowth caused by hormonal imbalances, including PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).

 

Clients who are sunburned should wait until the burn subsides. Herpes

Simplex Labialis (fever blisters) can be activated by laser treatment, especially

on the upper lip, and patients with a tendency for fever blistering can be startedon antiviral medication before treatment.

DO I NEED TO SHAVE BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
 

You should shave 2 or 3 days before the procedure, leaving small 2 to 3mm stubs of hair, but no longer. This is critically important for several reasons:

1. Visible stubs ensure the hairs haven’t been waxed or plucked, so the shaft and follicle are intact and therefore efficacy is not compromised;


2. Seeing the stubs allows me to establish the appropriate fluence for you.

3. Seeing the stubs allows you to target the areas with actual follicles, rather than wasting time delivering pulses on the skin in between follicles; and


4. Seeing the hairs that DON’T singe enables the clinician to perform a second pass of 1 or 2 pulses per hair that DID NOT respond, to enhance total clearance per session.

FAQ
 

HOW DOES THIS TREATMENT WORK ON PFB (INGROWN HAIR)?


Melanin is absorbed in both the hair follicle and skin. This not only damages the hair follicle and impedes growth, but also removes PIH (Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) in the surrounding area. Thus eliminating bumps caused by ingrown hair.

DO THE HAIRS FALL OUT? IF SO, WHEN?


If the laser lens and fluence setting are chosen correctly, many hairs will singe upon contact with the laser beam and will disappear. Some hairs which are in a dormant growth phase will not respond at all, although some of them will 
be damaged even if they did not singe. Those which are damaged may fall out within a few days after treatment or even immediately if the treatment site is rubbed.

CAN IT BE USED ON BLONDE OR GRAY HAIR?


There is no light-based hair removal technology which is efficient on blonde or gray hair because Melanin is the primary target or chromophore in laser hair removal, so treatment efficacy is typically much lower if the hair is low in melanin (like gray or blonde hair).

IS IT PAINFUL?

No, there is just a mild, very tolerable sensation of heat. This is one of the key technical breakthroughs of Aerolase technology. The Neo Elite has set a new standard for virtually pain- free treatment, even on darker skin types, thanks to MicroPulse-1064 technology. This unique benefit saves time, cost, and mess by eliminating gels and sprays required by other lasers that cool the skin during treatment. Please note that if the client's hair is longer than 3mm, there is a possibility that they will experience more discomfort.

CAN IT BE USED ON DARK SKIN?


Actually, the Neo Elite is the safest laser in the industry for darker skin types or tanned skin. This is because of MicroPulse-1064 technology, which essentially eliminates treatment pain while minimizing the chances of hyper- and/ or hypo-pigmentation.

IS IT PERMANENT, OR DO THE HAIRS GROW BACK?


The FDA requires that laser manufacturers describe the process as “permanent hair reduction”, not “permanent hair removal”, because, in their words, “although laser treatments with these devices will permanently reduce the total number of body hairs, they will not result in a permanent removal of all hair.” Patients can generally expect more than 75% to 80% clearance after 6 sessions and should plan on 1 or 2 annual follow-up sessions for ideal maintenance.
