Laser hair removal
The North Shore Laser Center @ uGlow Med Spa specializes in laser hair removal, offering a quick, safe and comfortable way to remove unwanted body hair permanently.
Laser hair removal is the process wherein a certified technician employs laser technology in a safe and controlled environment to quickly treat small or large areas of hair to be permanently removed by targeting and impeding the further growth of hair in the specific area(s).
Terminates the need for costly, time consuming and repetitive procedures including: waxing, electrolysis, shaving, tweezing and chemical depilatories.
Resolves the issues associated with ingrown hairs, unsightly boils and annoying skin irritations.
Studies conducted over the last 10 years have demonstrated that a peripheral benefit of laser hair removal was the increase of positive self-esteem and enhanced confidence apparent in the men, women and teenagers undergoing the procedure.
Finally, a cool, comfortable laser for treating almost every condition and skin type!
Whether you have fair, tanned or dark skin, our GentleMax Pro® laser system can be used to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions including leg and facial veins, permanent hair reduction, skin rejuvenation, skin tightening by wrinkle reduction and beard bumps (PFB).
It’s the fast, easy, and effective treatment you’ve been waiting for and it’s available right here in our office.
What to expect
The length of the procedure depends on the area of the body involved. A small area, such as the upper lip, may take several minutes, whereas a larger area, such as the back, may require several hours.
During treatment, you will wear goggles to protect your eyes from accidental exposure to laser light.
Our Certified Laser Technician presses the GentleMax Pro® to your skin and activates it for a fraction of a second. The laser light passes through your skin’s surface to tiny sacs of hair follicles. Each follicle contains a bulb that germinates a hair shaft. Many people describe the “zap” as a rubber band smack. Because laser hair typically causes only mild discomfort, patients generally don’t need anesthetics. However, topical ointments are available if you find the procedure too uncomfortable. Once the laser zaps there is no virtually no pain.
The procedure causes a slight charring of your stubble and you may notice a strong odor of singed hair, which is normal. Afterwards, you may experience some temporary redness and swelling. The hair will continue to grow through its cycle until the dead end falls out. After your treatment, you will be able to continue your normal routine or return to work.
