Laser hair removal has revolutionized the field of hair removal! Clear your mind of past hair removal practices. Imagine... no more painful waxing, plucking, shaving electrolysis or razors!
Both men and women alike can now make unwanted facial or body hair a thing of the past. With the Altus CoolGlide laser technology unwanted hair can be removed from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back, as well as sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
Radiant Images Laser Center uses a laser called the Altus CoolGlide which has been approved by FDA for permanent hair reduction for all skin tones and types including tanned skin.
The Altus CoolGlide laser induces two separate effects: temporary hair loss and permanent hair reduction. The Altus CoolGlide Laser usually produces complete but temporary hair loss, followed by a partial but permanent hair reduction.
Significant hair reduction can be seen after 3 Laser Hair Removal treatments. Results last for approximately a 3 month period of time.
With the Altus CoolGlide laser, 100% of the patients experienced temporary hair loss, while 89% of the patients had permanent hair reduction at 4-5 follow up. Of the 11% of patients who did not have long term hair-loss, most had blonde hair. Because blonde hair contains less melanin than darker hair, there is less chromophore for the laser to target, and the response is less. However, these patients had experienced temporary hair loss.
Temporary hair loss occurs in all persons, for all color hair and at all laser influences. It usually lasts from one to three months.
Permanent hair reduction is defined as a significant reduction in the number of hairs within the follicles' growth cycle.
Complete hair loss implies that there are no re-growing hairs. However this can be either a temporary or permanent phenomenon.
Warning: Adverse reactions included mild to moderate treatment pain and rare occurrences of transient pigmnetary alteration without scarring.
