Laser hair removal (or also commonly known as laser hair reduction) is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures today, and it’s no surprise why. Men and women alike go to great lengths to remove unwanted hair on all parts of the body, only to have their annoying stubble grow back like clockwork. People invest thousands of dollars in waxing, shaving, epilating, and tweezing supplies over a lifetime just to end up with temporary results.
Laser hair removal at Evolution Laser Studio provides the fastest, most effective, long-lasting solution for unwanted hair without any hassle. Our Portland clinic uses the latest, most advanced laser technology to eliminate hair growth at its source. Never shave, wax, or pluck again with laser hair removal at Evolution Laser Studio.
Laser hair removal targets hair follicles to kill any future growth from occurring. During a treatment session, our Astanza ReSmooth laser sends bright flashes of light onto the desired body area. The laser light safely penetrates through the skin and targets the pigmented melanin in your hair follicles. The melanin in the follicle absorbs the light energy, heats up, and destroys the nourishing tissue that promotes hair growth.
It is important to understand that laser hair removal is only effective on hairs in the active growing phase. There are three stages of hair growth: the anagen phase, catagen phase, and telogen phase. The anagen phase is the active growing stage when a hair is attached to the follicle and receives nutrients that stimulate growth. The catagen phase is when a hair is cut off from the nutrient source, and the telogen phase is when a hair is shed and a new cycle begins.
Because each individual hair on your body grows at a different rate, multiple laser treatments are needed to target each hair during the anagen phase. Most clients need 8 to 10 treatments spaced 4 to 12 weeks apart to achieve optimal, long-lasting results, although this can vary with skin and hair color. It is essential to maintain the correct treatment schedule for desired results.
Following each treatment, your hair will become noticeably thinner and begin to naturally shed. You will experience a significant reduction in hair growth after a series of treatments until all that’s left is smooth, hair-free skin.
Our ReSmooth laser uses two versatile wavelengths, 810 nm and 940 nm, for optimal treatment on a wider range of skin types and hair combinations, even clients with darker skin tones and better results than other lasers with lighter hair colors. These two wavelengths work together to target the deepest hair follicles for long-lasting results.
Thanks to the ReSmooth’s SmoothPulse mode, treatments are faster than ever. Our laser has a selectable frequency of up to 12 Hz, making it the fastest laser hair removal system on the market. Furthermore, the ReSmooth sports an industry-leading spot size at 9.1 cm² that makes treating large areas much easier and more efficient. Other lasers can take up to 15 to 30 minutes to treat large areas like the back, chest, and legs, but the ReSmooth’s extra-large spot size reduces treatment times to as little as 4 minutes. The ReSmooth also features an interchangeable small spot size handpiece for clients interested in treating smaller areas like the face, underarms, and bikini area.
The Astanza ReSmooth has the ability to deliver less painful treatments early in the process thanks to its SmoothPulse mode. Not only does the unique SmoothPulse mode make treatments extremely fast, but it also divides the laser’s energy into multiple strokes versus other lasers that emit all of the laser’s energy into one intense pass. The SmoothPulse mode builds up energy gradually and distributes the heat evenly for a pain-free, comfortable treatment. We still prefer operating the laser in its standard mode for more uniform early treatments, but we're also more of the rip off the bandaid kinda people.
In addition to the ReSmooth’s SmoothPulse mode, the laser features an integrated skin cooling system that alleviates the skin prior to each treatment pulse, effectively reducing pain and stimulating comfort for all clients. Furthermore, the integrated cooling system prevents thermal damage and always keeps the skin temperature low, ensuring painless and safer treatment for all client skin types, especially darker skin types.
The ReSmooth also emits energy through a special homogenous quartz fiber bundle that guarantees even treatment of the skin. Thanks to this uniform distribution of light energy and the unique square-shaped beam, the ReSmooth promises safe treatment and very low risks of side effects.
