Say goodbye to unwanted hair
growth with our painless solutions!
Laser Hair Removal Overview

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Laser hair removal treatments are an effective solution for reducing unwanted hair on the body. These treatments use pulsating beams of light to target the roots of unwanted hair underneath the skin’s surface, which removes hair and reduces more and more future hair growth with each treatment. This often includes the reduction of hair in areas of the face, back, underarms, legs, and bikini area. Inflamed and bumpy skin caused by ingrown hairs and from shaving and waxing will be a thing of the past. Your skin will look and feel smoother and silkier.

Our professional laser hair removal machines from Quanta Laser are the most up to date, scientifically proven machines on the market and can be used in just about all skin types and tones. For best results, we recommend multiple treatments, as some hair follicles have growth cycles at different times.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL PREPARATION

Prior to any series of laser hair removal treatments, our patients will have an initial one on one consultation with Dr. Christopher Ward to determine the proper hair treatment plan. During this consultation, Dr. Ward will discuss your medical history and examine your skin as well as the places you want the hair removed, the texture and color of the hair, and where it is in its growth cycle.

Before any laser hair removal treatment, we recommend the following:

  • Do not apply any lotions, creams, moisturizers, makeup, or other products to your skin the day of the treatment.
  • Do not use a tanning bed. If you have a natural or artificial tan from self-­tanning products, your tan must fade completely before beginning your laser hair treatment.
  • Do not pluck, wax, use dissolving creams or have electrolysis for at least one month before doing treatment.
  • Please shave the area to be lasered prior to your arrival at Elite Aesthetics.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE & RECOVERY

Before our treatments begin, we clean the targeted area and have our patients wear protective eye goggles during the procedure. The doctor will gently hold the skin taut while the laser is in use. The laser beam will pass through your skin to the tiny follicles where hair growth originates. Patients can sometimes feel a stinging sensation or warm pinpricks during the procedure so we apply cooling air to alleviate any burning sensation to allow quicker, and easier recoveries with little to no downtime for work and other activities.

Recovery Recommendations

  • Do not pick or rub the area and be sure to gently clean with soap and water.
  • Avoid exposure to the sun , both natural and artificial, for at least one week after treatment.
  • Use broad-­spectrum sunscreen (protects against UVA and UVB rays) with an SPF of 30 or higher every day.
