When it comes to laser hair removal services, there are several methods out there. Shaving, tweezing, waxing, and chemical approaches are some. Most are temporary and tedious, and some are painful! If you are looking for a different option for Laser Hair Removal in Anchorage, Alaska, then you’ve come to the right place!

Solara Skin & Laser Center’s Vectus™ Laser Hair Removal Sessions

One of the most common cosmetic procedures is laser hair removal. There are various types of lasers which use highly concentrated light beams in the red/far-infrared wavelengths to reduce hair growth. These act on the pigment in the hair follicle. Solara Skin & Laser Center’s med spa experts use the most effective Vectus™ laser for laser hair removal? When you come to Solara Skin & Laser Center for your hair removal, then your technician will use concentrated light beams or lasers to remove your unwanted hair. The medical procedure uses light energy from the lasers to damage the hair follicles to prevent future hair growth. You will then say be able to say good-bye to your abundance of dark brown to black hair.

Permanent Hair Reduction with Vectus™ Laser Hair Removal

Like waxing, the discomfort level depends on the area of the body that is treated, our personal pain tolerance, and the equipment used. Fortunately, laser hair removal usually hurts much less than waxing. Laser hair removal typically feels like your hair is being snapped by a rubber band. Your laser hair technician is experienced with using the equipment to reduce your pain and alleviating your discomfort by adding ice to the treated hair.

In addition to less pain, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the Vectus™ laser for “permanent hair reduction.” Did you know that the human body has around five million hairs, men have a few hundred thousand more hairs than women? Each of these hairs can grow in a different phase of the hair growth cycle. Your Solara Skin & Laser Center technicians understand the importance of allowing the hair to grow as part of the natural cycle so that energy may travel down into the active follicle and damage or destroy the hair growth. However, sometimes the hair can also be in the catagen phase, the transition phase between growth and rest, or the telogen phase, which is the resting phase. During the catagen and telogen phase, the body no longer nourishes the hair and is in the process of shedding the hair to restart new hair. This is why lasers don’t affect the hair in the catagen or telogen phase as the hairs are already on their way out, so the energy cannot reach the follicles. Then, your dark brown to black hair will reduce by 75 to 90 percent.

Every hair on your body is independent, so multiple treatments are necessary to catch all of your hair in the growth phase. Your hair follicles can also rebuild themselves, especially due to hormonal changes. If a follicle is partially damaged, then it may heal and begin to regrow hair.

This is why, on average, laser hair removal requires 7 sessions for the best outcome. These can range in time from a few minutes to over an hour. The timing is based on the size of the area and pigmentation. You will start to see the results after the first time. Then, with every hair removal treatment, you will progressively enjoy fewer and fewer hairs. You will typically take breaks of 4 to 6 weeks between each procedure when treating your face and 6 to 8 weeks when treating your body. The breaks are essential due to the cycles of our hair growth.

As the laser works by detecting the pigmentation within the hair follicle, it works best for those who have a higher contrast in coloration between skin and hair. However, this doesn’t mean it won’t work on those with darker skin, but more sessions may be needed because darker pigmented skin creates competition for the focus of the light beam.

Ensure Your Technician is The Real Deal

Finding a highly skilled technician to permanently reduce your hair should be your top priority. While the lowest price can be desirable, this is your precious skin, and if something goes wrong, the consequences can be severe.

It is essential to ensure your technician has been adequately trained and has experience with Laser hair removal. Ask to see their license or even before and after photos of some of their previous clients. If your selected technician works at a reputable facility, such as Solara Skin & Laser Center, in Anchorage, Alaska, you can be assured proper background checks have been completed, and your technician is the best around. Technicians need basic training to operate their business, but some have taken steps to obtain additional certifications and participate in extensive training related to their area of interest. Look for those technicians!

Another concern should be the cleanliness of the facility where the procedure takes place. Look for neat, clean, and sanitary facilities. Anything less and you are risking bruises, severe burns, scars, scabs, and blisters, some of which may even be permanent.

It is also essential the professionals are aware of the side effects and offer pre and post-treatment consultations at the time of consultation to help you heal and navigate the process as smoothly as possible.
