Laser Hair Removal
Permanent Hair Reduction in Columbus, OH
Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser Hair Removal is a great way to achieve hair removal for most people, but it won’t work for everyone. Patients with white, gray or red hair will not be able to benefit from laser treatment for hair removal. For these patients, Electrology (aka Electrolysis) is the best option for hair removal.
Why our Service is the Best
Not all lasers are the same …. and neither are skill sets of the cosmetic therapists who operate them! At About Face Cosmetic Therapy Center, we take the time to find your “clinical end-point” which allows us to set the proper settings for your treatment.
About Face Cosmetic Therapy Center uses Syneron-Candela® lasers …. the GentleLASE and GentleYAG systems. These state-of-the-art systems have special contact cooling tips that soothe and protect the surrounding skin, while bringing the laser energy as close as possible to the hair root. These lasers are the most effective method of laser hair removal. This technology is effective and comfortable – delicate enough for a woman’s fine, sensitive skin, yet robust enough for a mans beard, back or arms.
The Candela® lasers use a patented Cryogen cooling technology that makes the laser hair removal treatment as pain-free as possible. No other laser manufacturer has this patented system! When you visit About Face in Columbus, we only use the Candela lasers.
Your laser hair removal will be done by the owner, Vickie Mickey, or a licensed Cosmetic Therapist personally trained by Vickie. All licensed Cosmetic Therapists receive more than 750 hours of classroom and hands-on training before they see their first patient!
Your first appointment is FREE!
Skin Color Matters
For people with lighter skin colors, the Candella GentleLASE (it has a 755nm wavelength Alexandrite laser) is used. For people with darker skin colors, a special laser, the Candella GentleYAG (it has a 1064nm wavelength Nd:YAG laser) is used because it has the best wavelength designed to be most effective for laser hair removal on people with darker skin.
The Laser Matters Too
At About Face Cosmetic Therapy Center, we are proud to use Candella lasers, which are made in the USA and are the widely recognized as the best. Their patented cryogenic cooling system sprays the upper layer of skin with a cooling burst of cryogen — milliseconds before the laser pulse. This cools the skin and makes the laser hair removal treatment more comfortable.
Can Laser Hair Removal be Pain-free?
Laser hair removal does not hurt as much as waxing and is way quicker. Yes. You read that right. Candella lasers are equipped with a cooling device that helps reduce the discomfort and protect the top layer of skin from the heat. The feeling of laser hair removal has been described as a rubber band continually snapping at the skin. Additional side effects can be redness and swelling that last anywhere from one to three days. Most patients who have had the laser hair removal procedure believe the hair-free results are well worth the feeling experienced during the procedure.
