Laser Hair Removal

Conveniently Located to Serve Rutherford, Verona, Bergen and Essex Counties

Laser hair removal in New Jersey offers long-lasting results without the constant upkeep that comes along with other hair-removal approaches. Because of this, many patients prefer it to frustrating and painful options like waxing, shaving, plucking, and electrolysis.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

During laser hair removal, concentrated pulses of light are aimed at the targeted area. The energy is absorbed by pigments in the hair, and the heat damages the hair follicle. This ensures that no regrowth will take place.

Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair from almost any part of the body, including the legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, back, abdomen, chest, upper lip, and chin. It leaves behind smooth hairless skin.

Hair Removal with Primelase

We utilize the Primelase laser from Cocoon Medical for our laser hair removal treatments. The fastest and most powerful device on the market, Primelase uses diode laser technology to target hair follicles and inhibit them with thermal energy.

Primelase uses three varying wavelengths of light to target different hair follicles. This makes it extremely well-suited to every patient and their unique follicle structure. It can be safely used on all skin types and even works on tanned skin.

The process is extremely quick, even for large areas such as the legs and the back. With its immense power and results, the device has become a favorite among professionals and patients alike.

Preparing for Your Laser Hair Removal Appointment

During your consultation, we will examine your skin. This is done to identify your skin type so that the device parameters can be set accordingly. Make sure to tell us about any tattoos or skin spots.

Follow these preparation directions:

  • Avoid sun exposure three days before the session.
  • Shave the body areas where the procedure will be performed.
  • Do not wax or pluck hair from the roots before your laser hair removal appointment.

The Procedure

The target area is covered with ultrasound gel so that the device can glide smoothly over the skin. The laser energy is then directed at the targeted region. Primelase is well-known for being less painful than most lasers on the market. Any discomfort that the patient feels is minimized by the cooling effect of the device hand-piece and how quickly the procedure takes.

Laser Hair Removal Aftercare

There is no downtime or recovery time associated with Primelase laser hair removal, but patients are advised to follow aftercare instructions diligently. This includes avoiding use of tanning lotions and avoiding exposure to excessive heat with warm showers. Patients are also advised to stay out of the sun for a few weeks after the treatment.

Expected Results

After a few sessions, you will notice that the targeted hair does not grow back and that the quality of your skin has also improved. The number of treatment sessions varies from person to person. This is in part because hair must be treated during its growth phase in order for laser hair removal to be effective.

Laser Hair Removal Cost

The price of laser hair removal treatment is dependent on many factors. Cost is impacted by the number of treatment regions, the size of the targeted areas, and the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve the patient’s desired results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is an advanced technology that works by sending short pulses of precision laser energy directly into active-growth hair follicles. When the pigments in the follicle absorb this heat, it deactivates the follicle, so it can no longer produce hair.

Noninvasive, gentle, and less painful than most lasers, laser hair removal is a preferential treatment, which means it targets hair follicles without affecting skin cells or other nearby tissues.

We can safely and effectively treat patients of all skin types.

What areas can benefit from laser hair removal?

We can use laser hair removal on virtually any part of your body, including more sensitive areas like your face or the tops of your toes. Most people opt to treat one or more of the following areas:

  • Upper lip and chin
  • Side of the face and neck
  • Eyebrow area
  • Bikini area and legs
  • Chest, back, or shoulders

Laser hair removal is just as effective for large areas as it is for smaller places.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Laser hair removal is a quick and relatively comfortable procedure. As the handheld device passes over an active-growth hair follicle and transmits a pulse of energy, it feels something like a tiny rubber band snapping against your skin.

This brief, mild sensation is well-tolerated by most people.

How long does laser hair removal take?

Before the procedure, we cleanse the treatment area and gives you eye shields to protect your retinas and corneas from the laser.

During the treatment, he holds your skin gently taut as he systematically passes the laser, spot-by-spot, over the treatment area.

The entire process can last anywhere from a few minutes to about an hour, depending on the size of the area you’re treating.

How many laser hair removal sessions will I need?

Hair grows in three phases: Anagen, catagen, and telogen. Of these, the anagen phase is the only active-growth phase.

Because the laser only targets active-growth follicles, you’ll need multiple treatments to achieve complete results. To achieve optimal results, most patients require five to eight sessions, each spaced four to six weeks apart.

What kind of results can I expect?

You can expect to see a 10-25% reduction in hair after your first laser hair treatment, further reduction with each successive treatment. Some people require occasional touch-up sessions to maintain their results.

Besides achieving smooth, hair-free skin, your skin is likely to be noticeably smoother and more uniform at the treatment site.

Who doesn’t adore beautifully enhanced lips? Let us unveil the enchanting process behind achieving those captivating pouts:

1️⃣Cleansing and numbing: The lips and surrounding areas are thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils that could increase the risk of infection. Topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the lips to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

2️⃣Poking: Using a fine needle or cannula, the injector creates entry points or small punctures along the lip border or within the lips themselves.

3️⃣Injecting: The filler is carefully injected into the marked areas or along the lip borders, following the predetermined plan to achieve the desired shape and volume.

4️⃣Massaging: After injection, the injector may gently massage the lips to distribute the filler evenly and reduce the risk of lumps or irregularities.

5️⃣Assessment: Once the filler has been injected, the injector evaluates the results and makes any necessary adjustments to ensure symmetry and natural-looking enhancement.

6️⃣Aftercare: Patients are advised on post-treatment care, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, refraining from touching or pressing on the lips, and using cold compresses to reduce swelling.
