The advanced hair removal system is a non-invasive gentle pulsed light treatment utilizing laser therapy. Multiple hairs are treated with each pulse. The pulsed light targets the melanin in each hair follicle; this causes thermal damage to the hair growth cells without harming normal skin. Each treatment reduces the number and size of hair follicles until the desired end result is reached. Most patients will feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure hair follicles in the skin will be red and lightly swollen. There is no down time or recovery time after the procedure. Treated hair will gradually shed over the next two weeks. Treatment time depends on the size of the treatment. Depending on your skin type and area to be treated, 2-10 treatments are often necessary.
