Laser Hair Reduction
Look Your Naturally Expressive Best
What to Expect
Every woman has heard the rumor that dealing with unwanted hair will only make it grow back thicker and faster. Laser hair reduction completely rewrites this tale by instead making your hair grow back much thinner and more slowly following every appointment.
After receiving the right number of laser hair reduction treatments, you can expect a lasting reduction in hair growth and potentially complete permanent hair loss in the targeted areas. Each session you attend saves you time, money and irritation in the future while simultaneously giving you even, velvety skin to enjoy now.
How it Works
During laser hair reduction a trained technician will run a very concentrated light beam over your skin through a handheld device. It efficiently works right at the source as the color in the hair follicle absorbs the powerful light. When this happens, heat is created which then destroys the hair and discourages future growth. This makes laser hair reduction an impressively potent tool in contrast to those which only get rid of the top layer of hair.
Sessions may take as little as 10 minutes for facial hair reduction for women or up to an hour for hair reduction on larger areas such as the legs or arms. Multiple appointments will be needed to achieve long-term results. The number, frequency, and length of sessions you require will depend on the area you’re focusing on – 4-8 sessions each taking place approximately 1-2 months apart is typical. Occasional sessions may be needed later on to ensure lasting effects.
A Customized Plan of Care
You are unique and so is your body. Before starting the laser hair reduction process, meet with your Aura Aesthetics technician to develop a customized plan of care specially designed to help you feel confident that you are making the right choice. Together we’ll thoughtfully discuss any factors which could affect your experience, including hormonal changes, hair thickness, laser hair reduction cost, and more.
