Light-based treatments are highly effective for performing hair removal and are one of the most commonly sought-after aesthetic procedures in the United States. This popular procedure adds significant profit to any practice and provides a long-lasting solution for patients who are tired of shaving, waxing, and tweezing.
Though there are many benefits to hair growth, such as warmth and insulation, hair has become a cosmetic nuisance for women and men alike. Treating unwanted hair is one of the main cosmetic concerns in America, especially for people who have excessive amounts of hair on visible areas of the body including the upper lip, hands, feet, bikini, back, legs, and arms.
While there are several methods for temporarily removing unwanted hair (shaving, plucking, and waxing), the unwanted hair eventually grows back and requires constant maintenance. Astanza’s light-based treatments are an alternative that gives long-lasting results, using a broad-based light to target and heat the melanin in a hair follicle, ultimately disabling further hair growth and killing the production of unwanted hair. This diode hair removal laser method is safe to use on all skin types and hair colors.
During treatment, a light-based system emits bright flashes of light into the skin where the unwanted hair resides. After being absorbed, the light energy then heats up and damages the hair follicles.
Because hair grows in different stages, multiple treatments are needed to target the hair follicles during their growth phase. Each pulse of light energy takes a matter of seconds and treats multiple hairs at once, making this procedure very quick and easy to perform.
Most patients require 5 to 8 hair removal treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve desired results. Light-based systems are some of the longest-lasting methods for treating unwanted hair, eliminating the need for bothersome methods like shaving or plucking that require continual management.
