Men, Laser Hair ReductionIf you’ve never considered laser hair reduction an option, it may be time to think again. Stop fighting back the tears while "Helga" rips out your hair with antiquated wax and strips or trying to shave those hard to reach parts. Laser hair reduction can be done anywhere on your body where hear grows. Laser hair reduction, especially with the new, high powered Venus Versa, is the way to go.
Focal Point Salon and Spa now offer Venus Versa™!Are you a good candidate for this treatment? The best candidate for Venus Velocity™ laser hair removal treatments is someone tired of temporary hair removal methods, who is looking for a permanent hair reduction solution for the face or body.
For safety reasons, however, an individual may not be an ideal candidate if he:
- has experienced previous complications with laser therapies
- has a history of keloid scarring has an active infection or history of herpes simplex in the treatment area
- has used a depilatory cream or other hair removal treatment (waxing, plucking, electrolysis) that removes hair from the root within the last six weeks is hypersensitive to hydroquinone or other bleaching agents has used oral Accutane within the last six weeks
Are the treatments fast?Venus Velocity™ laser hair removal treatments are quick, though the length of the session will vary depending on the size of the treatment area. In most cases, sessions can be booked during a lunch break, and multiple smaller areas (such as the underarms) may be treated during the same session. The process is quick and there is no downtime and each time you will have less and less hair.
IS THERE ANY SPECIFIC PRE- OR POST-PROCEDURE CARE REQUIRED?Prior to each treatment, skin should be clean from lotions, creams, or makeup. The technician will shave and clean the area before starting the treatment. They will also ask about the individual’s medical history, so it helps to have that information ready. Refrain from any hair removal treatments, aside from shaving, at least six weeks prior to the appointment. It is also recommended to stop tanning a few weeks before each treatment.
Post-treatment, gently clean the treated area twice a day and apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 before going outside.
Avoid excessive sun exposure whenever possible and cut out any hot baths, massages, or treatments that require direct contact with the treated skin for 48 hours post-treatment.
In the days following treatment, hairs may fall out more easily—this is perfectly normal.
Some patients may also experience what appears to be a rash accompanied by some mild itching. This is just the skin’s response to the energy. The redness and itching should subside quickly, within a few days. Cool compresses or antibiotic ointment can help speed up the healing process.
