NIMA uses laser removal equipment from both Cynosure and Syneron/Candela, the two largest laser manufacturers in the world. NIMA utilizes ND:YAG, Alexandrite, Alma (diode), and Multi-Plex technologies for optimal outcome. Our treatment systems provide the highest level of hair reduction that our clients can achieve.
The average person may expect a seventy to ninety percent permanent reduction after treatments. However, it is recommended to continue to work with treatment to maintain results. This varies between body areas, and depends upon the persons genetic makeup when it comes to the thickness of their hair. During your initial consultation we can give you an estimated idea of what you can expect.
To achieve 70-90% permanent hair removal, we recommend about 8-12 sessions. This number varies from among body sections, and between different individuals.
Only about 30-50% of your hair is actively growing at any given time. So hair follicles transition through active and dormant stages. When a follicle is dormant, the laser light cannot be absorbed, and the follicle is left undamaged. With each treatment, we will cover the entire skin surface, but only those follicles that are “active” will be impacted.
Laser hair removal is less effective on clients with red, blonde or grey hair, so we recommend that you come in for a consultation so that we can give you an accurate idea of what results you can expect. We can however treat all skin colors and hair types.
In 20 minutes (or less) each body area can be completed. Appointment time frames will be predicated on how many areas we are treating that day. Because there are no necessary breaks with laser hair removal sessions, you can easily get your treatment on your lunch break and return to work immediately.
Yes. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. It carries the lowest risk of adverse reaction. When performed by trained practitioners, side effects from laser hair removal are very uncommon.
Experiences differ, but similar treatments, like waxing, usually are much more painful than laser hair removal. Most clients find laser hair removal treatment to be a very acceptable procedure that feels similar to small pinpricks. The feeling should lessen with each laser hair removal treatment. If you are particularly sensitive, the technician can apply a topical anesthetic cream.
It is a safe procedure that the majority of people find relatively painless. There are, however, some minor side effects that may happen after the procedure. This includes redness, crusting of the skin, or slight changes in skin color on the treated area. All side effects are temporary.
Laser hair removal can be permanent if the hair follicle is completely destroyed. However, if the hair follicle is just damaged rather than destroyed, the hair will eventually grow back. After undergoing six to eight laser hair removal treatments, a person should be able to enjoy minimal hair regrowth for up to one year. If regrowth happens sometime between six to twelve months, touch-up treatments can be scheduled to manage the hair.
Yes. Laser hair removal is absolutely safe. Many men and women utilize laser hair removal to get rid of hair on the upper lip, eyebrows, chin, or sideburns. This is a safe and convenient way to avoid the razor bumps and irritation that may come with shaving facial hair.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the cost of laser hair removal varies depending on location, experience of the technician, and the area of the body being treated. Please feel free to reach out to us for a consultation to give you an estimate.
