LASER HAIR REMOVAL
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
This procedure uses a laser to target melanin or pigment in the root of the hair. By destroying the melanin in the root, you destroy the hair and prevent it from growing back.
It is a gentle and non-invasive process that leaves your skin looking smoother than other hair removal methods.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
At Plaza Aesthetics and Wellness, we have two FDA-approved lasers.
The Palomar Vectus has a large handpiece that makes the treatment quick and uses diode laser technology.
The Sciton BareHR laser is ideal for diverse and darker skin tones because it combines two laser options. It has a diode laser and a blend laser. The blend laser combines three different laser wavelength lasers, including the 1060 wavelength, which is ideal for darker-pigmented skin. Many practices cannot safely treat darker skin tones. Having two versatile laser options sets Plaza Aesthetics and Wellness apart.
Both of these lasers have a cooling probe. When the probe touches the skin, it cools it down as the laser fires and helps to alleviate the pain. The cooling probe helps reduce the bee sting-like sensation you feel after the laser has fired. This makes the treatment more tolerable. There are other things that you can do to manage discomfort, such as ice or a Zimmer cooler.
Laser hair removal is not a one-and-done procedure, and the average patient has 97% to 99% hair removal after eight treatments.
HOW to prepare
There are a few ways that you can prepare for your treatment to ensure you get the results you want. The main inhibiting factor is sun exposure. This applies to both pre-treatment and post-treatment. Avoid direct sun before and after your treatment, and if you can’t, make sure you use at least an SPF 30 sunscreen.
Before your treatment, you don’t want to do anything that will change the color of your skin. This is because the laser targets pigment, and it needs to have a focused target for the treatment to be effective.
Before your procedure, avoid sun exposure, sunless tanners, and spray tan. Anything that will add pigment to your skin will also make you more susceptible to burning during the laser treatment.
An indication of a successful treatment is perifollicular edema. This is a red ring that forms around the hair. It doesn’t always occur for every treatment, but if you notice redness around the area, keep it clean to prevent bacteria growth and folliculitis.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
At Plaza Aesthetics and Wellness, our prices are middle-of-the-road and fair for the industry. We pride ourselves on affordable and safe skin care treatments while being a physician-owned and operated establishment staffed with licensed professionals.
