What conditions are treated with the laser?
Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only recognized way to remove hair permanently has been by electrolysis, which can be tedious, time-consuming and uncomfortable. The GentleYAG System safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini areas are usually completed in under ten minutes; legs, backs and larger areas can take longer.
A secondary permanent hair removal method. Recognized by the medical profession as being a safe way to permanently remove hair, electrolysis has become a truly accepted profession allied with many other health professions.
Causes of Hair Growth
All hair growth, normal and abnormal, is regulated by hormones. It is the over-secretion of male hormones that causes excessive hair growth. Research has established that most excess hair is due to the combination of too much androgen, and an enzyme in the follicle that is very sensitive to the increase. Excessive hair growth may be encouraged by many different variables such as puberty, pregnancy, aging, drugs, glandular disorders, stress and eating disorders.
Comfort and Sensitivity
In removing unwanted hair, the degree of discomfort varies with each individual’s tolerance, but most patients find it no worse than tweezing. With patience, expertise and skill, the well-trained electrologist is able to help many persons overcome their feeling of inferiority or other psychological problems stemming from unwanted and bothersome hair growths.
