Laser is a quick and efficient method of PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION.
The process treats hair follicles simultaneously and is ideal for large areas such as legs, backs, and bikini lines.
The laser produces a beam of light that seeks out the pigment in the hair follicle, creating enough heat to significantly impede the follicles ability to grow. Working best on the dark haired, light skinned candidate, laser is not effective on blonde, gray, or white hair. The cost for laser treatment is from $75.00 - $500.00 per body area. On average it will take 6 – 8 visits to achieve desired results.
Clients may choose to purchase a topical anesthetic cream. Ice is provided for cooling. (Dr. Numb Topical Cream $35.00)
Permanent Hair Removal is achieved expertly and affordable through electrolysis, a safe method of hair removal that leaves your skin smooth and intact. Electrolysis has been the proven method of hair removal since the late 1800’s. It is the only method that the FDA has approved for PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL when done by a technically skilled electrologist. Electrolysis is the process of removing hair permanently by destroying the hair growing cells (papilla) with an electric current from a highly sophisticated machine known as an epilator. Access to the papilla is made by inserting a very fine filament into the hair follicle. Applying the electrical current cauterizes the papilla, thus rendering it impossible to grow more hair. Waxing is a fast and inexpensive way to temporarily remove unwanted hair. The Spa at Chelsea Park uses two methods of waxing, the hard wax or non-strip method and the hot wax or strip method. The hard wax method is used for delicate parts of the body where the skin can be thin and fragile, but the hair is coarse. The wax is applied to the skin in the same direction the hair grows, once hardened it is pulled off whole (no muslin Cloth) in the opposite direction. Hard wax is excellent for nose and bikini hair removal. Strip wax is applied to the hair the same as hard wax, the hair is then pulled out by the root with a muslin strip. Traditionally hot wax is the most popular and is great for legs, eyebrows, and backs. A soothing cream is applied to the area afterwards to relieve any sting or redness. The skin is left soft and smooth for 4 weeks.
Unlike wax, sugar is made from natural ingredients with no animal testing. It is a paste that is warmed when used. Sugar is applied with the fingertips in the opposite direction the hair grows then it is “flicked” off in the same direction the hair grows. When the hair is pulled out in the same direction it grows there is less chance of breakage and therefore less chance of ingrown hairs.
Sugaring is an acquired skill that is not easily mastered. It is the method of choice at Hair Goes Inc. for most of our clients who come to have a Brazilian wax. It is a fast and easy way to temporarily remove unwanted hair, a soothing cream is applied afterwards and like wax, the sugaring will give you smooth silky skin for approximately 4 weeks.Read more...
