Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments; this is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage (referred to as anagen) - all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time, which is why these treatments need to be repeated at strategically timed intervals over the course of the hair growth cycle (they recommend a visit every 4 weeks).
The number of sessions required for complete elimination of hair varies, and is determined by hair color, thickness and density. Generally most patients recquire 6 to 10 treatments.
Pascual MD uses the top-of-the-line Cynosure Apogee Elite laser systems - a 755 nm Alexandrite laser and a high powered 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser - these are the most optimal wavelengths for hair removal on the market today. By providing two different wavelengths, the Apogee Elite laser can be used to treat patients with ALL skin and hair types!
The Apogee laser also incorporates the use of the Smart Cool system by Cynosure. This system utilizes a "double cooling" technique which uses the body's natural cooling process in conjunction with a specifically engineered external cooling system. The result is virtually painless hair removal.
