Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal can permanently reduce unwanted hair on the legs, back, bikini area and chest using light energy to target and destroy the cells responsible for hair growth.
Paradise Lagos Salon & MedSpa offers a simple, easy way to permanently reduce unwanted hair using the Cool Glide Laser treatment. This advanced laser is much faster, less painful and more effective for hair removal than competitor laser hair removal systems.

The advantages of laser hair removal with the Cool Glide Laser are clear:

BEFORE AND AFTER
What areas can be treated?
Permanent laser hair reduction can remove hair from faces (except around eyes), backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini lines and legs.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Permanent laser hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and most hair colors. Your provider will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.
Can tanned skin be treated?
Tanned skin can be treated safely, but always inform your treatment provider if you have been tanning or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks, and he or she will adjust your treatment regime accordingly to give you the safest and most effective experience.
How does it work?
Laser energy is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth
How do I prepare for my appointment?
On the day of your treatment, plan on wearing clothing that will allow easy access to the area being treated. Laser hair removal works best when the hair is 1-2 millimeters in length so shave the area to be treated before your appointment.
What should I expect after treatment?
Generally, some redness will remain for approximately five to seven days. For some patients recovery time will be less while other patients will have prolonged redness.
Some redness and slight swelling may be present in the area that has been treated, however, this should subside within a few hours. If any prolonged redness or swelling occurs then consult your physician.
To help protect your post-laser skin, keep the area clean and use at least SPF 15 sunscreen when outdoors.
Is there a risk for complications?
There is a low risk of pigmentary changes, however discuss your concerns with your physician prior to your treatment.
Can pseudofolliculitis be treated?
Yes. Pseudofolliculitis is a type of chronic acne disorder caused by ingrown coarse or curly hairs. This disorder affects darker skin types, and the infrared energy delivered by the Sciton laser is the preferred method of treatment.
Is treatment permanent?
On average, each laser treatment will be associated with some permanent hair loss. So in most cases hair removal can only be achieved after several treatments. The number of treatments will depend on your individual response to laser therapy, and the amount of hair to be removed. Remember that the goal may not be total hair removal. Many patients are happy with a reasonable degree of hair reduction. Also remember that the hair that remains is often lighter in color and thinner than the original hair prior to laser surgery. As with other treatments for unwanted hair, there is no guarantee that laser hair removal treatment will be permanent.
How many treatments will I need?
You may need to be treated about 4-6 times at approximately 5-8 week intervals. There are three phases of hair growth; anagen, catagen, and telogen. Only hairs in the active growth phase, anagen, can be successfully treated.
Does treatment hurt? What can I expect with the procedure?
Most patients describe laser hair removal as feeling “prickly,” or like the light snap of a rubber band against the skin. Afterwards, it might feel like a bad sunburn. Each patient has his or her own level of skin sensitivity and pain threshold. Different areas on the body are also more sensitive than others.
