More people are turning to Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is popular for a variety of reasons, with people praising waste reduction, long-term savings on hygiene products, and its overall convenience.

The hair reduction procedure is done using a laser apparatus that heats your hair follicles to a therapeutic level that eventually stops hair growth. Before the procedure, consult with your doctor about your health status and any potential risks you might have.

Laser hair removal at Jiva Med Spa is a quick, relatively painless procedure done by specialists with years of experience.

Most procedures last between a few
minutes for smaller spots to an hour for
larger spots.

“Throughout the entire process, your health and your well-being
are considered, which is why we focus on your unique goals”

– Dr. Rakesh Nanda, MD

Laser Hair Removal Treatment Overview

On the day of the procedure, you will arrive at Jiva Med Spa and will be given a topical anesthetic to numb the area. If any remaining hairs need to be shaved that will be done. Then, you’ll be given goggles to protect your eyes from the lasers, and the treatment will begin. Using one of our laser apparatuses, one of our doctors will apply it to the area being treated, and laser pulses will be sent to your follicles.

After the procedure, you will need to schedule your follow-up appointment. Between appointments, be sure to avoid sun exposure for six weeks, or as recommended by your doctor. You might experience some swelling or discomfort, which usually only lasts a day or two and can be mitigated with ice packs. For skin irritation, steroids might be prescribed.

About the BBL Handpiece
Forever Bare BBL is one of the most advanced options available from Sciton, the leader in aesthetic laser surgery options. Traditional options focused the point of reduction, which meant discomfort for the patient as the treatment was carried out. The BBL handpiece sends out multiple pulses at a higher repetition rate. As a result, you experience the same effects as traditional laser hair removal treatments without the associated discomfort. The treatment can be adapted to treat both large and small areas precisely.

About the Clear Scan YAG
The Clear Scan YAG is another cosmetic laser solution provided by Sciton. This laser solution was initially created to fight skin redness, broken veins, and broken capillaries. Frequently, laser hair reduction will draw attention to other skin impurities that laid below the hair being removed. For these impurities, such as spider veins and skin discoloration, the Clear Scan YAG™ is efficient at improving their appearance. However, Jiva Med Spa frequently uses the Clear Scan YAG to aid in hair reduction in conjunction with the BBL handpiece.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Laser Hair Removal

How long does it take for me to see the results
A common misconception is that laser hair reduction is a once and done treatment. Most laser hair reduction takes anywhere from two to six sessions to entirely remove. However, after these sessions patients can expect to see significantly less body hair than before their treatments.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Laser hair reduction targets almost any area of the body that has excess or unwanted hair. Most commonly, this includes the upper lip, chin, back, chest, bikini area, neck, and shoulders.

What does follow-up look like?
After a few weeks, you will notice the hair begin to shed and not return. Immediately after the treatment, you can expect some swelling and pain, which can be treated with OTC painkillers, ice packs, and steroid cream if prescribed. Pain should dissipate in a day or two.

Dr. Nanda went above and beyond answering any questions I might have and making me as comfortable as possible with the process of laser tattoo removal. I was blown away with how much could be removed per session. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for tattoo removal of any size.
