Laser Hair Removal & Pseudo Folliculitis

 

Safe and Effective Treatments

La Vraie Beauté provides the most advanced FDA cleared laser technology for the reduction and elimination of Pseudo Folliculitis, more commonly known as shaving bumps. These may appear on any commonly shaved area of your body. This advanced technology allows us to treat all ethnic groups and skin types safely and effectively.

Treatments That Really Work

Laser light is absorbed by pigment in actively growing hair, damaging the hair follicle and impeding hair re-growth, while reducing and eliminating the bumps caused by ingrown hairs. The average patient sees at least a 75% short-term reduction of shaving bumps within two weeks after just one or two treatments. One or two annual touch up treatments may be required after completing the initial treatment series.

Average Treatment Series

Only a portion of your hair is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Therefore, a series of treatments will be required to achieve the long-term improvement you desire. These treatments are spaced approximately 4-12 weeks apart, based on the hair growth cycles. Long-term improvement is seen after completing a series of four to six treatments.

Gemini Laser technology

The Gemini Laser is sold and manufactured by Iridex, which purchased the Aesthetic Division of the original manufacturer (Laserscope). The Gemini incorporates the wavelengths of both of Iridex’s other lasers, the Aura and Lyra, and operates at a much higher power.

The Gemini laser incorporates both the 532 and 1064 wavelengths of the Aura and Lyra lasers; however, the 532 (also known as KTP or Green Light) portion is much more powerful than that found in the Aura. This makes it possible to deliver higher fluences and deliver larger spots for treatment of facial capillaries and rosacea. The 1064 side of the Gemini laser is unchanged from the Lyra.

Thus, the Gemini laser can be used to treat all facial pigmentation – capillaries, brown spots, hyper-pigmentation, melasma, rosacea, acne, spider and varicose veins of the leg, facial rejuvenation, and hair removal.
