Shaving can be a real pain, especially if you have thick, stubborn hair prone to razor burn and bumps. Plus, the act of shaving, epilating or applying removal creams to legs, underarms and upper lip adds significant time to your daily bathing and grooming routine. To make things easier, and smoother, many individuals opt for laser hair removal to avoid painful shaving and messy topical creams. The beauty of laser hair removal is the hair is gone for good*. Even after just a few treatments, shaving and epilating becomes easier since there are fewer strands to target.
The Ellipse Laser
Dr. Busso offers the Ellipse Laser, an innovative product providing the fastest application on the market. The Ellipse system uses less energy and targets more hairs than the Intense Pulsated Light (IPL) systems seen in many commercial or spa hair removal facilities.
Because it has a larger surface, treatment time is significantly reduced. Ellipse can be used on the face, armpits, legs, bikini line, chest and back. After just four to six treatments, patients can expect to see results. Studies show that 77 percent of the treated hair doesn’t grow back after a decade*!
What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
Many hair-conscious individuals fear the pain associated with lasers. But, the Ellipse system is relatively pain free compared to other laser treatments. The procedure works best on patients with dark hair and light skin, but many individuals can benefit regardless of their specific hair or skin color.
After laser hair removal, you might see redness or a sunburn-like sensation for a few days, which is completely normal. After a week, what looks like hair re-growth occurs. In reality, the follicles are pushing the dead strands out – without regrowth.
Depending on your individual hair composition, multiple treatments may be required. To allow the skin and follicles to rest, procedures are performed four to six weeks apart. The average patient benefits from almost 50 percent of hair reduction in just three treatments*. After six to eight treatments, patients can expect up to 80 percent reduction in hair*.
