Subtle Enhancement Med Spa offers innovative and advanced laser technology to treat unwanted hair. No more painful plucking, waxing, shaving or depilatories.
In response to the ever-increasing demand to remove unwanted hair on virtually any body area, the ability to offer superior results to the widest variety of patients is critical. With state of the art laser technology, we can remove your embarrassing and unwanted hair growth. When the laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and the hair shaft, the follicle is damaged. The follicle is either destroyed or hair regrowth is delayed. Our laser is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for “permanent hair reduction”.
The FDA describes “permanent hair reduction” as the long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regime. Laser hair removal can be used on the legs, underarms, face, bikini line, back, chest, shoulders, and between the eyebrows. All you need to do is call Subtle Enhancement Med Spa to schedule your laser hair removal consultation and soon you will be able to enjoy the beauty of decreased unwanted hair. For a consultation, please contact us or call 919-806-5549.
Common questions about Laser Hair Removal :
Will laser hair reduction work for me?
Laser hair reduction works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicle. The unwanted hair must have some type of pigment. The laser does not work on white or very light gray hairs. Hair follicles, which are in the active growth stage, are better targets for absorbing the laser light and hence are more effectively damaged and destroyed.
How do I schedule laser hair removal?
Please call Subtle Enhancement Med Spa at 919-806-5549 to schedule a consultation for laser hair removal or schedule your appointment online.
Do not pluck, wax, use depilatories or have electrolysis for at least two weeks prior to treatment. You may shave the hairs with a razor blade or an electric shaver. You may also cut the hairs with small scissors. All cold sores should be completely healed. Be sure to inform Subtle Enhancement Med Spa if you have a history of fever blisters. We may want to place you on an anti-viral medication. We ask that you avoid all forms of tanning for approximately 3 weeks prior to treatment and use sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher. On the day of your treatment, please shave the designated area of all hair. The less hair above the surface of the skin will allow for a more comfortable and effective treatment.
What if I have used Accutane (isotretinoin) in the past?
We recommend that you wait six months after Accutane (isotretinoin) therapy before you begin laser hair removal.
Can I have laser hair removal treatment while pregnant?
Our office policy is to avoid any elective procedures while pregnant.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Subtle Enhancement Med Spa provides cost effective and reasonably priced laser treatment for permanent hair reduction. It is a cosmetic procedure and, in the majority of cases, is not covered by your insurance. The cost of the treatment depends on the size and the number of body areas that are treated. Most people need at least a series of 5-7 treatments to achieve desired results. People with darker skin tone may require more due to using a lesser frequency during each laser treatment.
How does the Laser work?
Our safe and effective laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle causing damage to the hair root. This results in decreased or delayed hair growth. Hair follicles in the active growth stage are better targets for absorbing the laser light and are more effectively damaged and destroyed. Because hairs are in different stages of growth, more that one treatment is usually needed.
Who is a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Patients with coarse, dark hair and light skin are the ones who respond the best. In people with darker skin color (more melanin), the skin competes with the hair for absorption of the laser light. There is a small percentage of risk for potential damage to the skin and skin pigment changes for those with darker skin types. People with a tan should avoid laser treatment until the tan has faded completely.
Is there discomfort associated with the laser treatment?
There is minimal discomfort involved in this treatment with our specific laser which is equiped with a state of the art cooling tip. Many people compare it to a slight twinge here and there, but typically remain comfortable during treatments. This slight discomfort may be heightened when treating more sensitive areas. Overall, Laser Hair Removal is a quick and easy process and is not to be viewed as a painful experience.
What will I experience after laser hair removal?
You may have minimal discomfort or none. Patients with dense areas of hair may experience some sensitivity. Immediately after treatment, the skin will be slightly red and feel like slight sunburn. You may also experience some minimal swelling. Ice packs are recommended for the first day or so. These symptoms usually disappear in a short period of time. Most patients return to normal activities immediately. With each treatment, you will begin to notice less and less hair growth.
