In Irmo, Chapin, and Columbia SC laser hair removal services can be performed on men and women that have all different types of hair, and body types. Whether you want facial or body hair removed, we can perform most of the treatments in 30 minutes or less, leaving you free to go back to work or about your day. Laser hair removal is a fast, comfortable, and safe solution for hair removal. The Palomar Starlux® Pulsed Light hair removal works by emitting pulses of intense light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. The variety of Lux hand pieces allows the treatment to be customized to the client's needs.
Generally speaking, hair removal takes approximately five or six treatments, though sometimes additional treatments can be necessary. Everyone responds differently to the devices used, and satisfaction is a relative term. Some clients want only a reduction in the need to shave, while others want to eliminate their unwanted hair completely. There are other factors (i.e. pregnancy, age, genetics, hormonal changes) that can stimulate new hair growth also. So while hair removal has advanced tremendously, it is still not an exact science...hair follicles that are not actively growing cannot be disabled. Periodic future treatments may be needed. Educating clients about realistic expectations is a huge part of our mission.
