Permanent Hair Reduction
Palomar Aesthetic Platforms
Permanent Hair Reduction
At unparalleled speed the Palomar Aesthetic Platforms are the laser of choice for our hair removal treatments. Fast, efficient treatments are the result; we can treat a man's back or a pair of legs in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, in even less time.
Pulsed-light systems work by emitting pulses of intense lamp light in the hair follicles. The list is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat them loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. The Palomar Aesthetic System's multiple hand pieces offer a variety of treatment options, such as permanent hair reduction on all skin types
Comfortable Hair Management
Traditional waxing and threading treatments, which essentially rip the hair from the skin can be quite painful. Most people, however find the Palomar Systems to be significantly more comfortable. In addition, since the pulses of light penetrate the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow out before you are treated. With Palomar treatments, you can remain virtually hair-free all the time!
Thanks to its advanced, technology, the Palomar Aesthetic Systems work several time faster than other light-based hair removal systems. A woman's legs or a man's back can be treated in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, upper lip or bikini line -can be treated in even less time.
The demand for intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal and laser hair removal treatments is at an all-time high. This is not surprising, considering that traditional hair removal via electrolysis or waxing is painful and expensive. Light-based hair removal permanently reduces unwanted facial and body hair, in fewer treatments and with more comfort than is possible with traditional procedures.
In the 1990s, Palomar® pioneered permanent hair reduction after receiving the first FDA clearance for this procedure. Since then, Palomar lasers have been the industry standard that all others have been compared to, and validated by Palomar's strong patent position. Subsequent new technology developments from Palomar led to new, groundbreaking technology that improved clinical outcomes over a broader client base.
Our hair removal technology delivers specific wavelengths, with large spot sizes, superior Contact CoolingTM and Smooth PulseTM technology to provide comfortable treatments with excellent results for clients of all skin types, hair colors and hair thickness. Palomar's pioneering, patented technologies have been established as the most versitile, effective and profitable hair removal systems available.
We put our industry-leading research and development efforts behind the perfection of the procedure. Palomar's hair removal equipment are clinically proven to produce results in removing unwanted hair from all areas of the body including the face, back, chest, leg, bikini line and underarm areas - with greater comfort and less down time.
Laser Hair Removal Information
Why is Laser Permanent Hair Removal superior to shaving, waxing and electrolysis?
Shaving is a daily chore, since razors just cut hair at the surface of the skin and then the hair starts growing back almost immediately. Waxing, which pulls hair at the root, can be very painful and does not last long, usually 2-4 weeks. Electrolysis hair removal, versus laser hair removal, can treat one hair follicle at a time, which is extremely time-consuming and very impractical on large areas.
In comparison to these old methods, Laser Permanent Hair Removal removes unwanted hair quickly and affordably with permanent results.
How does Palomar’s Hair Removal System work?
Palomar Hair Removal System emits pulses of light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. The specialized Palomar light specifically targets the hair follicle to stop its growth, without damaging delicate pores and the surrounding structure of the skin.
How many Laser Permanent Hair Removal treatments will I need?
Hair follicles grow in three cycles: Active, Regressive, and Dormant. The most effective way to remove hair is during its active growth cycle. As such several treatments are needed to achieve full results. Typically treatments are spaced six weeks apart to target hair follicles during the active growth cycle and prevent them from growing back.
What can I expect during a Laser Permanent Hair Removal with Palomar Systems treatment?
Your aesthetician will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse sends a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed and working to permanently remove unwanted hair.
How long does a Laser Permanent Hair Removal treatment take?
The length of the procedure depends on the area being treated. About five minutes for a small area like the lip or chin and up to an hour for a large area like full legs or an entire back.
What happens after a Laser Permanent Hair Removal treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation. The redness gradually subsides within a few hours.
The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days after treatment. This is not new hair, but treated hairs being expelled from the skin.
When will I start seeing results from Laser Permanent Hair Removal?
After your first treatment, it can take up to two weeks or longer for the treated hair to push its way to the surface of the skin and fall out. You can shave as much as you want between treatments, until optimal hair reduction is achieved.
Will Laser Permanent Hair Removal with Palomar Systems work if I have light hair color?
Excellent results can be achieved on black and dark brown hair, while often very good results can be achieved on light brown and dark blond hair. But, because the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle, blond, gray, and red hair can be difficult and sometimes impossible to treat. A free consultation with one of our highly trained medical aestheticians can help determine how your hair will respond to Laser Permanent Hair Removal.
What about dark skin?
With one of Palomar Systems specially designed handpieces.
What about sun-tanning during Laser Permanent Hair Removal?
Sun exposure on the area to be treated is not recommended for several days before and after treatment. Changes in skin color can affect the results. We recommend you wear a sunscreen on all treated areas whenever outside during your series of treatments.
Are there any risks associated with Laser Permanent Hair Removal?
Laser Permanent Hair Removal is FDA-approved for safety and effectiveness. In terms of side effects, your skin will appear pinkish after treatment, but this will gradually disappear within a few minutes or hours. Sometimes, a mild sunburn effect may occur, which should go away within a day or so.
