Come in for a complimentary consultation to help you determine the best hair removal method for you. Our Certified Technicians will help you figure out approximately how many treatments will be necessary to accomplish your hair removal goals.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
We typically recommend six treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart. This is due to the hair growth cycle, which is divided into three phases. The anagen phase is when a new hair is generated by the follicle and it is at this stage the laser energy will destroy the hair. The anagen phase does not all begin at the same time that is why multiple sessions over different time periods are needed.
Excel HR significantly improves client comfort by offering continuous cooling before, during, and after each laser pulse to achieve the safest most effective results for clients of all skin types. Areas that can be treated are legs, bikini area (including Brazilian), underarms, arms, chest, back, abdomen, and face.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Will laser treatments damage my skin?
With Xanadu Med Spa’s Cutera excel HR™ laser and its sapphire contact cooling technology, there may be some reddening of the skin after a treatment, but it keeps your skin cool while it works.
Is laser hair removal painful?
Laser hair removal at Xanadu Med Spa feels like a rubber band snap on your skin, but with our Cutera excel HR™ laser and its sapphire contact cooling technology, your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout your treatment.
How long will recovery time be?
There is no recovery time. You can resume regular activities immediately after treatment.
What kind of lasers does Xanadu Med Spa use? How powerful are they?
Xanadu Med Spa uses the Cutera excel HR™ Laser. Cutera’s unique sapphire contact cooling technology keeps your skin cool, which dramatically lowers the risk of injury and pain.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
You should stop any waxing or tweezing you do six weeks before coming in for your laser hair removal. You can still shave and should shave within 24 hours before your treatment. The hair needs to be in your skin, but not above the skin, for laser removal to work.
Waxing hair removal uses a resin-based wax-like product to remove the entire hair follicle from the root. Results can last up to six weeks.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Wax on. A warm wax mixture is spread over hair in the direction of its growth and a paper or cloth strip is then placed on top of soft wax. Hard wax doesn’t require a strip because it cools solid enough, and becomes a strip in itself. Cold wax is usually already applied to pre-made strips, but a little friction over it helps generate some heat for the wax to soften and better adhere to the hair.
Wax off. Once the wax has slightly cooled or has grasped enough to the hair, it’s pulled off in the opposite direction of hair growth.
