About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic treatments in the United States. It is a convenient option for the long-term reduction of hair follicles on the body and face. This procedure frequently leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother, and it produces long-lasting results compared to other hair removal methods. Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa provides safe and fast laser hair reduction treatments with Venus Velocity and LightSheer technology for women and men on frequently needed areas, including the back, legs, arms, face, chest, armpits, and intimate areas. Both Venus Velocity and LightSheer are diode lasers that provide more comfortable and effective laser hair reduction treatments.
Laser Hair Reduction Reviews
"I love, love, love Allegro Medspa of Santa Rosa! Everyone I have encountered in there has been over-the-top professional. They make it a personal atmosphere and treat you as if you are the only person who exists at that moment. Even though their facility is commonly known for plastic surgery, their services range beyond that. They have an incredible esthetician in Danielle Anglen, who does everything from waxing, to facials, to microdermabrasion, to the newly popular Ulthera. She is fantastic and so very knowledgable! Lisa handles Botox injections, Juvaderm injections, laser hair removal, etc. She knows her stuff and doesn't force any of it on you. She simply educates you on all that she does and let's you make your own decisions. Wendy, the office manager, is the PERFECT first impression for the company. She's warm, friendly, EXTREMELY organized, and clearly cares for everyone who walks through the door. She also has a genuine interest in making sure each patient/client's experience is a positive one. I will refer anybody interested in any of these services to Allegro Medspa of Santa Rosa. My experiences have been nothing short of amazing!"- T.H. / Yelp / Mar 16, 2011
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a gentle process that is suitable for most patients. In your consultation, you will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair reduction:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal methods (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall good health
At your laser hair reduction appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair reduction, a technician will stretch out the skin to provide a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The laser's energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to reach the active growth phase so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin in the area being treated.
What to Expect
While the treatment is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
