During a laser hair removal session, light is passed through the skin and absorbed by the hair shaft. The temperature of the shaft is raised, thermally destroying the cells responsible for regrowth. The light is designed to not be absorbed by your skin.
Both men and women commonly come in for treatment. Laser hair removal can be done on anyone who has started puberty, and young women need to have started their menstrual cycle.
For either sex, hair removal is commonly done on the face (eyebrows, top of the nose, lip, neck, chin, ear lobe), upper body (shoulders, breast, back, underarm, arms, hands) and lower body (abdomen, pubic area, bikini line, buttocks, thighs, legs, toes).
One session usually takes less than one hour to complete. Depending on the size of the area, it could take as few as five minutes. There is no recovery time.
Usually you will need multiple sessions before most of the hair in your treatment area will be removed. Spa Nala offers package deals of seven sessions with free maintenance for one year after completion of the seventh session.
Laser hair removal at Spa Nala feels like a rubber band snap on your skin, but with the Cutera excel HR™ laser’s sapphire contact cooling technology your skin stays cool and comfortable throughout your session.
