At Rejuvenate, we use the eMax laser hair removal system by Syneron. It is considered by many as one of the best laser hair removal devices on the market today.
This innovative device combines laser and bipolar radiofrequency energy to destroy the root of the hair in two ways. This makes permanent hair reduction more effective than older technologies. The Syneron eMax laser works on a wide range of hair and skin colors.
Using the eMax laser for hair removal, hundreds of hairs are treated at a time. Areas small and large can be treated. The most popular hair removal services available at Rejuvenate include:
Older hair removal devices only worked on people with light skin and dark hair. The eMax hair removal laser works on more skin and hair colors than ever thought possible. It may not be right for everyone, however. Clients with certain medical conditions, pigmentation issues, and those that are pregnant may not qualify. To find out if you are a good candidate for eMax, please call us or book a consultation.
Preparing for laser hair removal is the key to great results. Before your consultation, it’s best not to shave so that our laser technician can see the density and coarseness of the hair. This helps determine the number of laser sessions needed to obtain your desired result. Prior to your first hair removal appointment, please avoid waxing and plucking for at least 3 weeks prior to treatment. Just before the first hair removal appointment, shave the hair you wish to have removed. A close shave before laser hair removal is important because it helps the laser target and destroy the hair follicle, rather than the hair itself.
At Rejuvenate Medspa in Denver laser hair removal treatment takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour on average. It all depends on the size of the treatment area. Very large areas, such as the back, may take longer. First, a topical numbing gel is applied to the skin. Then, our experienced laser technician passes a hand-held device over the skin. Each section of hair is treated with a short pulse of laser energy. The quick zap you feel is the laser energy passing through the skin to target the hair follicles with a short burst of heat. Heat energy is what kills the hair root. Cooling gel is then applied to help reduce discomfort.
Laser hair removal is not instant. Approximately 10 to 20% of the treated hairs will gradually fall out in the next 1 to 3 weeks. It is not necessary to pluck the hair, but rather let the hairs fall out naturally. You will notice a reduction in body hair after each treatment. Each laser hair removal session builds on the results of the last. After completing the recommended series of laser sessions, you can enjoy up to 90% hair reduction that lasts for several years.
It is considered a permanent treatment, however, most patients need a touch-up every two years. Everyone’s hair grows at a different rate, so if you notice hairs coming back, it may be time for a touch-up. Most patients need 7-10 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Hair grows in different phases, so that is why multiple treatment sessions are needed to see results.
The recommended number of treatment sessions varies based on hair density, thickness, and color. Each session removes about 10 to 20% of hair in the treated area. The best way to find out how many hair removal sessions you need is to meet with the laser hair removal specialists at Rejuvenate Medspa in Denver. We have two convenient locations in Cherry Creek and Golden, Colorado.
Performed by an experienced hair removal technician at Rejuvenate, laser hair removal has a low risk of side effects. We only use FDA-approved laser technology that has been rigorously safety tested. The most common side effects are temporary redness and skin sensitivity. Laser hair removal increases the risk of sunburn, so it’s important to use a high-SPF sunscreen in the first few days after treatment.
The cost of laser hair removal in Denver varies based on the size of the area that is being treated. The recommended number of treatment sessions also factors into pricing, as each patient is unique. Rejuvenate offers competitive pricing and 20 years of experience with laser hair removal so that patients can get the results they want at a reasonable price. Using the latest technology, we ensure the most effective and long-lasting hair reduction so you can enjoy many years of smooth, hairless skin.
