Laser hair removal has come of age and is a fully developed procedure that can yield long-term permanent hair reduction of the face and neck area. It is also very commonly used on the body, especially for the under arm, bikini and leg area. At Skin Renewal we are committed to the latest technological innovations in this field and can now offer a laser/light treatment for any skin type and hair color excluding grey or white. We can offer you safe, effective, well researched, tried and tested treatments including the CoolGlide Excel, the ProWave, Lightsheer or E-Max.
The CoolGlide Excel laser was the first 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser cleared by the FDA to permanently reduce hair in patients of all skin types (I-VI), those who are tanned or tanning and patients who suffer from Psuedo-Folliculitis Barbae also known as ingrown hairs. Other technologies require the suspension of treatments during the summer months but the CoolGlide laser may be used year-round on skin of all types including tanned skin.
The ProWave™ laser hair removal treats skin types I-IV and due to the large spot size and fast repetition rate, large areas like legs and backs can be treated quickly and effectively treated in as little as 6-8 treatments. The ProWave™ contains two groundbreaking innovations. First due to the custom design, the ProWave™ emits mostly infrared light above 770 nm, wavelengths recognized as the most versatile for hair removal. The second innovation is the output spectrum that can be shifted to optimize treatment for each patient. Three distinct programs tailor the wavelength and pulse width to optimize performance and efficacy for each patient.
Best results for laser hair removal are obtained when there is no suntan or sun exposure on the treated areas. If there is sun exposure, lower settings have to be used which makes the treatment less effective.
The Lightsheer® is a diode laser capable of treating all skin types and hair colours excluding white or grey hair.
The E-Max Hair Removal System is a combination of Diode laser and Radiofrequency, resulting in a comfortable treatment suitable for all skin types and hair colours (excluding grey or white hair).
