Are you tired of constantly plucking, waxing, or shaving unwanted facial hair? Do you hate having to remember to pack your tweezers on a trip or constantly checking every mirror you pass to make sure you didn’t miss a hair on your chin or lip?
Maybe you’ve considered trying permanent hair reduction solutions but are worried about pain or discomfort. Maybe you don’t know where to start when it comes to getting rid of that hair for good.
This is why the laser specialists at New Life Aesthetics are excited to provide two different options of effective, virtually painless facial hair reduction to their current patients. Using cutting-edge technology, you can ditch the tweezers for good.
New Life Aesthetics currently offers two different permanent hair reduction options for sensitive areas like the face. These include:
Forever Bare BBL – a treatment that uses energy to heat and target dark hair follicles. Forever Bare BBL uses a technology called intense pulsed broad-band light which means the energy is evenly distributed creating a comfortable experience during your treatment.
Aerolase – The Neo Elite is a revolutionary Nd:YAG 1064-nm laser with a 650-microsecond pulse duration — shorter than the cooling time of the skin tissue surrounding the follicle. As a result, the heat is effectively sealed within the follicle since it doesn’t have time to conduct outward to the surrounding skin. This makes Aerolase hair reduction virtually painless and well tolerated by all skin tones.
If you are a man or woman and suffer from excess or unwanted facial hair, then permanent facial hair reduction may be a great option for you.
If you are pregnant, you may not be able to have facial hair removal treatments at that time. Additionally, if you have tattoos near the treatment area (including permanent makeup) you may not be able to have treatment near those areas. You will also need to avoid treatment in an area of any active infection until they have healed.
Our laser specialists will perform an in-depth review of your concerns and goals as well as complete an assessment of your hair and skin to determine which treatment option would be right for you.
Previously, many hair removal treatments were not safe for darker skin tones due to the risk of injury and pain. But New Life Aesthetics offers laser hair reduction that is safe for all skin types and tones, including tanned skin. This means no more waiting until winter to get rid of those pesky hairs!
Just as older permanent hair reduction solutions were not safe to use on tanned or darker skin, many of these treatments would not work if someone had light-colored hair follicles. This meant those with light brown or strawberry blond hair would see no benefit from their treatment.
Thankfully the Aerolase device is able to target lightly pigmented hair follicles, reducing unwanted facial hair for good.
Both of our facial hair reduction devices are designed to be as effective and as comfortable as possible. During your treatment, you may feel a slight warming sensation due to the energy being used to target the hair follicles.
You are free to shave, but avoid things that pull the hair out of the follicle by the root for about 4 weeks prior to your appointment. This includes:
If hair is removed from the follicle, the device won’t be able to find its target, making the treatment ineffective.
Your sessions will only last a few minutes and there is virtually no downtime – making it a perfect lunch break or between errands appointments.
The treatments may make your skin slightly more sensitive and you may see some mild redness after your procedure. Protecting the face from the sun between treatments, wearing sunscreen or a wide-brim hat, can help reduce any additional sensitivity caused by the sun when you leave.
Your treatments will be scheduled approximately 4-6 weeks apart and many patients see results in as little as 2-3 sessions.
Our laser specialists will review the risks and benefits prior to starting your treatment so you know exactly what to expect during and after your session.
If you’re ready to say so long to facial hair and ditch the razor, New Life Aesthetics is ready to help.
