Laser Hair Removal: Old Treatment Made Over

When laser hair removal hit the scene, it was a game changer! It was huge! For the first time ever, clients could have the benefits of a hair free life that lasted a lifetime!

 

Before laser hair removal, being hair-free was a time consuming, painful process that consisted of waxing appointment after waxing appointment, razors, depilatory creams that left rashes and more unpleasantness than can ever be recounted in one blog.

 

With all the awesome promise that was laser hair removal when it first came out, there were a few draw backs.

 

The first laser hair removal machines on the market were ground breaking, but they were BEASTS! They were huge in size taking up lots of space in treatment rooms and required dedicated specialty outlets in order to run them. In order to cool these extra-large sized machines, you needed big fans that were soooo loud – so there was no chatting during treatments with your laser hair removal treatment specialist.  Having a treatment done took forever, because these machines took a long time to re-charge for each pulse so to do an area like a lower leg took 3 hours.  On top of that, in order to have effective results there was a significant number of treatments needed (usually 12-14 treatments).

 

The second wave of laser hair removal machines offered better results, fewer treatments, quieter machines, but were INCREDIBLY painful and were hugely stinky! In order to compensate for in-efficiencies the machines, this generation of laser hair removal machines literally blasted the hair to the point of incineration, which when treating high density hair areas left a lovely cloud of stinky, burnt hair smoke in the room post treatment (blech!)

 

Now? Laser technology has come a long way. These new machines offer amazing benefits!

 

-Fast!

Lower legs can be treated in 30 minutes!

 

Less pain!

With more effective and efficient energy use came the addition of larger “chill plates” which allow the area to be cooled while be treated.

 

-More efficient laser energy!

Which means hair is treated and eliminated with just the right amount of energy, not blasted to the point of obliteration creating a cloud of smoke. Being more efficient also means that you can have the luxury of chatting with your laser hair removal specialist, imagine!

 

Laser hair removal has been a favorite treatment since the very beginning. Why? Because shaving and waxing are kind of a bummer.  Laser hair removal has given clients the hair free lives they have always wanted. It still offers the same hair free life that it has always created, it just better now than it’s ever been before!

Cleanliness

We are proud to say that we exceed the requirements set forth by the region for high level sanitation, disinfection and sterilization.  We have cleanliness protocols for literally every room in our clinic! Creating and maintaining the highest level of cleanliness will always be a top priority.

 

Good Karma

Having fun at work is important to our emotional and psychological wellbeing.

You will hear both regularly when you visit us!

 

Being honest (AKA Just say no)

We have extensive experience with lasers, and we know that sometimes things happen that mean we should wait to do your treatment.  If it’s not the best, most safe time to treat you, we will reschedule you to a time that is, or just ask you to wait.  Even if it means we aren’t making money.

 

Being safe

Lasers are powerful tools that can do amazing things.  We have made so many lives better with our lasers!  We also have a tremendous respect for lasers and what they can do.  We have worked extensively to keep up with the latest medical bulletins and studies so that we can make sure we are always being as absolutely safe as possible in every treatment.

 

Commission Free

All of our staff are commission free. This means no one will recommend a treatment based on any other reason than they think you will love it. No one will ever add an “extra” treatment just because, or drag out a series of treatments and make it longer if it is not really needed. We are proud to have low staff turnover because this means that the person you love to see, the one that knows your history, is likely to be there for a long time! Lastly, we only accept tips in the form of chocolate and wine (Read: we don’t accept tips, we believe in a job well done for every treatment).

Come in and experience for yourself what makes us stand out!

Shaving Sucks. SkinScience Can Fix it.

Shaving is the pits (pun intended, lol). You spend an inordinate amount of time in the shower replicating moves only a contortionist can successfully complete, hoping you don’t pull a muscle, fall or both in hopes of smooth legs and a clean bikini line.  Then 24 hours later – you are back to square one.  On top of all that, you need to be a quasi-millionaire to afford the new blades that come out every month, what are we up to now 37 blades per razor?

 

Being the total geeks that we are about facts and data, we have done the research for you and can tell you exactly what a lifetime of shaving accumulates to! You are welcome. (Really, we should be thanking you, we love this stuff!)

 

 

The Average Woman:

 

  • Shaves 12 times per month.

 

  • Spends 4.2-6 minutes shaving her legs.

 

  • Spends 10.9 minutes shaving for shaving sessions that include more than 1 body part.

 

  • Is shaving hair that grows from 78,000 follicles (on legs, underarms, bikini line)

 

  • Disposes of  3-4 razors over a month

 

  • 87% percent of women include regular bikini line shaving into their regular grooming routines and of these, 60% report of regular problems with shaving.

 

 

 

Over a lifetime you will:

 

  • Shave around 8,000 times

 

  • Spend about 80,000 minutes shaving

 

  • Dispose of almost 2,000 razors

 

  • On top of all that you will spend countless hours and energy into treating and preventing shaving related problems like nicks, cuts, abrasions, and ingrown hairs.

 

 

The solution: Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is fabulous.  It is the modern solution to a very old problem. Since it’s FDA approval in 1997, millions of people have had laser hair removal done. It allows you to have your cake and eat it too! Smooth skin, no shaving.

 

You work hard and you deserve to look and feel your best all the time, without having to deal with the time-consuming frustration that shaving (or waxing, or tweezing) can be.

 

Laser hair removal will literally save you time. We did the math, it can save you 26 hours a year – you can literally gain a new day each year by just not having to shave.

 

Why are you still waiting? Call today and book your laser consultation now, you will be so glad you did!
