Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from your body. It is a great alternative to waxing, shaving and plucking hair. The procedure can be done on the face, legs and other areas of the body with unwanted hair that is difficult to shave or wax.
It is a painless procedure that does not involve any anesthesia or discomfort. Your skin care professional will guide a handpiece over the areas to be treated, which will deliver targeted laser energy into the hair follicles. The melanin pigment in the follicle absorbs the laser energy, which destroys the hair at its root. This results in a significant reduction of hair growth for long-term, permanent results that will continue to diminish over time.
The best candidates for laser hair removal are people who have excess body hair, either from genetics or hormone imbalances. It is also popular for those who want to reduce the time and money they spend on regular shaving and waxing.
Treatment can be completed in one to two sessions, depending on the area of the body that needs to be treated. Some people experience a slight tingling sensation during the procedure, but this is usually not a major problem and many patients return to normal activity immediately after the treatment.
It takes a few treatments to reach the maximum amount of hair reduction, but once you get there, it will continue to diminish in size and thickness over time, leaving you with smoother, softer skin.

This technology is used in all hair removal procedures at glo Skin Spa and is especially helpful for facial treatment. The light pulses of the BBL (bi-polar radiofrequency) device penetrate deeply into the skin to heat the hair follicles, causing them to shrink and eventually fall out. This technology is as comfortable as a hot stone massage and provides lasting results.
The process is similar to that of electrolysis, but the light energy is absorbed by the melanin pigment instead of the blood in the hair follicles. When the melanin absorbs the laser energy, it transforms into heat, which then destroys the hair follicle. This process is known as photothermolysis.
In addition to hair removal, laser therapy is used for skin rejuvenation and for treating acne scars. It can also be used to treat actinic keratosis, sun damage and other conditions.
