xeo Laser Hair Removal
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is versatile, efficient, and quick. Apple Valley Family Medicine can perform laser therapy in all areas of your body, from larger surface areas -- legs, back, and chest --to more sensitive parts (your upper lip and bikini zone).
With the help of laser hair removal therapy, Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye and Dr. Oshiyoye can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second.
After an average of 3-5 laser hair removal sessions, 90% of patients experience permanent hair loss. If hair returns, it grows back finer and lighter in texture.
Not only is laser hair removal extraordinarily efficient and versatile, but it’s also gentle and safe for your skin. Rather than being painful and harsh, the laser therapy feels more like a rubber band snapping on your skin.
How does xeo laser hair removal work?
The light energy targets your hair follicle by using beams of highly-concentrated light to penetrate your hair follicles and prevent regrowth. Pigment in your hair follicles absorb the light and destroy your hair.
The xeo combines three laser and light technologies along with seven multi-functional handpieces, so Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye and Dr. Oshiyoye can perform over 20 aesthetic procedures, not just hair removal.
The xeo treats a broad range of skin types and body parts. Regardless if your hair is coarse or very fine, or if your skin is dark and tan or fair and freckled, Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye and Dr. Oshiyoye can customize the xeo laser therapy to work just for you.
What should you know before your first laser hair removal session?
Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye and Dr. Oshiyoye discuss the details with you in person and answer any questions you might have about laser hair removal. However, if you’ve already opted for laser hair removal, here are a few things to keep in mind before your first session:
- You should eliminate waxing, plucking, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets your hair’s roots, which waxing and plucking temporarily remove.
- You should avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment because the exposure decreases the effectiveness of laser hair removal.
If you’re tired of the inconvenience of removing unwanted hair, laser hair removal is worth considering. Call Apple Valley Family Medicine today or schedule an appointment online.
