Excess Hair
If you are a man or a woman and have excess or unwanted hair, the new advanced laser hair removal is the approach to beautiful skin. The process is simple and faster than any other treatment available. It gives you longer lasting results than any other hair removal method.

How does the process work?

To better understand the process, you need to understand hair growth.
Many factors influence the growth of hair, such as age, weight, ethnicity and medications. Hair also grows in cycles and that is why it is hard to predict how many treatments the individual will have in order to achieve the best effects. Laser hair removal is achieved by passing the laser light over the treated area. This process ensures easy treatment of large areas at one time without great discomfort

Is the laser hair removal permanent?

Laser actually slows the process of growth by disabling the hair follicles. The best results are achieved with multiple treatments (usually four to six treatments). You can have a significant regrowth of hair within one year period.

Is the laser hair removal similar to electrolysis?

No, the laser procedure is much faster and significantly less painful in comparison to electrolysis. It could be compared to a rubber band snapping or a warmth sensation. Each of us is different, however some areas are more sensitive than others. Advance laser technology gives you the reassurance of hair removal that is convenient, fast, effective, and safe. When talking about safety, the YAG laser has been used by physicians for about ten years without any major long term side-effects. Now you can feel confident having smoother and silkier
skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What body areas can I get treated?
A: Any area, except around the eyes. The underarms, legs, back, bikini line, face, neck, etc., can all be treated...fast!

Q: What are the treatment sessions like?
A: Quick and easy! After your initial consultation and pigmentation readings are taken, your treatment will consist of a wand-like hand piece moved over your skin. The hand piece emits a light that disables the hair follicles. Most people perceive the light as a gentle "snapping" sensation. Once this is completed the treatment provider will wipe away any loose hair from your skin, and you're ready to go.

Q: What should most people expect after treatment?
A: Most people experience some mild redness and tenderness in the treated area shortly after treatment. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will still be mild and temporary.
Your treatment provider will explain other, less likely side effects to you.

Q: What is the difference between laser and pulsed-light treatments?
A: Pulsed-light systems and lasers are very similar and remove hair in basically the same way. However, the Palomar EsteLux uses a new technology that removes hair up to ten times faster than lasers. EsteLux pulsed-light treatments can fit even the busiest person's schedule.

Palomar EsteLux Permanent Hair Reduction
At unparalleled speed the Palomar EsteLux is the laser of choice for our hair removal treatments. Fast, efficient treatments are the result; we can treat a man's back or a pair of legs in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, in even less time.
Long-Lasting Results Pulsed-light systems work by emitting pulses of intense lamp light in the hair follicles. The list is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat them loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. The EsteLux's multiple hand pieces offer a variety of treatment options, such as permanent hair reduction on all skin types.

Comfortable Hair Management
Traditional waxing and threading treatments, which essentially rip the hair from the skin can be quite painful. Most people, however find the EsteLux to be significantly more comfortable. In addition, since the pulses of light penetrate the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow out before you are treated. With EsteLux treatments, you can remain virtually hair-free all the time!

Super-Fast Treatments
Thanks to its advanced, technology, the Palomar EsteLux System works several time faster than other light-based hair removal systems. A woman's legs or a man's back can be treated in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, upper lip or bikini line -can be treated in even less time.
