What is Laser Hair
Removal Treatment?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure designed to reduce unwanted hair. This technique employs Areolase laser technology to target hair follicles, effectively reducing hair growth over time. It’s a popular choice for those seeking a more permanent hair reduction solution compared 
to traditional methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking.
The principle that makes laser hair removal so effective is selective photothermolysis. This technique utilizes a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to accurately target the melanin chromophore 
in the hair, which gives hair its color. Light from the laser is absorbed 
by melanin in the hair follicle, producing heat that damages the follicle and hinders future hair growth without harming the adjacent skin. This targeted precision renders laser hair removal an effective and efficient technique for eliminating unwanted hair. This precision makes laser hair removal a targeted and efficient method for reducing unwanted hair.

Long-term Reduction in Hair Growth

While it may not permanently remove hair, it significantly reduces hair growth, so you can stop shaving the treated areas or shaving them less frequently. Many people experience a permanent reduction in the number of hairs after a series of sessions, and any hair that regrows is typically finer and lighter in color.

Precision in Targeting Specific Hair Areas

Laser hair removal is highly precise, targeting hairs down to the follicle. This precision ensures effective treatment of the desired area without damaging the surrounding skin. It’s particularly beneficial for sensitive or hard-to-reach areas where other methods might be less effective or more painful. This precise targeting makes it an ideal solution for facial hair removal and for shaping areas such as the eyebrows or bikini line.

Laser Hair Removal Results

Laser hair removal offers long-term reduction, with immediate effects visible after the first session and significant changes after two or three treatments. Full benefits are apparent months later, and some may need maintenance for ongoing results. Success at Ortho-Rejuv hinges on factors like skin and hair contrast, with advanced lasers accommodating various types. Treatment effectiveness varies by body area, and consistent session scheduling is crucial. The expertise of our trained technicians also ensures optimal treatment outcomes.

How Long Is the Wait Between Laser Hair Removal treatments?

At Ortho-Rejuv, we tailor each client’s laser treatment plan to their unique hair growth cycles, recognizing that hair growth varies from person to person and across different body areas.
During your initial consultation and throughout your laser hair removal treatments, our experts meticulously assess how your hair responds to the laser, allowing us to customize the intervals between sessions to effectively target more hair follicles over time.
This personalized approach is extended to accommodate the distinct hair growth cycles of various body areas; for instance, facial hair, which typically has a faster growth cycle, may necessitate treatments every 4 weeks, whereas areas like the legs or back, with slower growth cycles, might have longer intervals between sessions, up to 6 weeks or more. 

This strategic adjustment of treatment timing, based on the specific area being treated, is vital to maximizing the efficacy of your laser hair removal process at Ortho-Rejuv.

Post-Treatment Tips & Guidelines

Avoiding Heat

For the first 24 to 48 hours post-treatment, avoid hot baths, saunas, or any activity that may excessively heat the treated area.

Gentle Skin Care

Use gentle, fragrance-free products on the treated area to avoid irritation. Avoid exfoliating or using harsh chemicals until the skin has fully healed.

Sun Protection

The treated skin can be more susceptible to UV damage, so applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF is crucial when going outdoors. This helps prevent hyperpigmentation and skin irritation.

Avoiding Other Hair Removal Methods

To prevent irritation and ensure the effectiveness 
of the treatment, refrain from waxing, plucking, or applying depilatory creams to the treated area in between sessions.

Staying Hydrated

Keeping your skin hydrated can aid the recovery process. Drink plenty of water and use a gentle moisturizer.
Most clients can resume their usual activities immediately after treatment, but following these aftercare tips is essential to enhance healing and achieve the best results.
