Laser Hair Removal With Bare HR™

Smooth, silky skin is always in, but keeping up with hair removal is a never-ending task. Traditional methods like shaving, waxing or plucking only offer temporary results and the cost of new creams or razors can quickly add up. And despite your best efforts, the hair always comes back. If you’re fed up with the hassle and want to revolutionize your skin care routine, laser hair removal with Bare HR at Wink Medical Aesthetics provides a more permanent solution that can eliminate unwanted hair on the face or body for good.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal can help you achieve smooth skin by targeting unwanted hair at the source. It works by delivering concentrated laser energy deep into the hair follicles, where the light energy is then converted into heat and absorbed by the pigment (melanin) within the hair. This effectively damages the hair root and shaft to prevent future growth.

Because hair grows in cycles, a series of four to six treatments is often required to achieve lasting results, but the amount of regrowth will diminish after each session. Eventually, no new growth will occur and unwanted hair will be permanently reduced in treated areas, eliminating the need to shave, wax or pluck. Compared to traditional techniques, laser hair removal with Bare HR provides other advantages as well, including:

  • Faster treatments than any other device on the market
  • Delivers the longest-lasting results of any hair removal method
  • Up to an 80 to 90 percent reduction in unwanted hair
  • Can be used on the face and body
  • Effective for larger areas such as the legs, back or chest
  • Reduces the long-term cost of hair removal
  • Smooth skin with no more cuts, burns or ingrown hairs

What is Bare HR™?

Bare HR by Sciton has raised the bar for laser hair removal treatments. As one of the market’s fastest and most comfortable devices available, Bare HR works by delivering ultra-short pulses of energy at an optimal temperature to damage hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin. It also uses three different wavelengths at once to effectively treat patients with varying skin types and hair depths for quick and comprehensive results.

Ideal Candidates for Bare HR™

Laser hair removal can be done nearly anywhere on the body and is safe for all skin tones and types. Common treatment areas include the legs, arms, chest, back, upper lip, bikini zone and shoulders, but our laser hair removal experts will personalize your procedure to meet your needs. For maximum effectiveness, the device settings can even be calibrated based on the coarseness or color of your hair and adjusted to treat specific areas. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal include both men and women who:

  • Are tired of dealing with unwanted hair that always comes back
  • Want a more permanent hair removal solution
  • Can commit to at least four sessions for optimal results
  • Looking to reduce hair growth in several areas
  • Aren’t taking any medications that could interfere with treatment

If you’re thinking about laser hair removal and want to find out if this treatment is right for you, our skin care experts can thoroughly assess your skin and hair type during an initial consultation. Your treatment goals will also be reviewed to ensure that Bare HR laser hair removal at Wink Medical Aesthetics can deliver the long-lasting results you want.

Prepping for Your Bare HR™ Treatment

After an initial consultation, the skin care experts at Wink Medical Aesthetics will provide you with pre-treatment instructions to ensure that you’re ready for your appointment. Typically, this means shaving a few days before your scheduled visit, but no plucking, waxing or using depilatory creams in the weeks prior to ensure the hair follicle is left intact. Following these guidelines will improve the effectiveness of your laser hair removal treatment.

It’s also recommended to avoid excessive sun exposure and certain skin care products prior to your appointment. Laser hair removal can aggravate sunburnt skin, while retinoids, AHA/BHAs and glycolic acids can make your skin more sensitive to the laser. Finally, wear loose clothing when you come in, as tight clothing may irritate your skin after treatment.

Getting the Most Out of Your Laser Hair Removal

  1. No plucking, waxing or tweezing for at least a month before treatment
  2. Avoid sun exposure and certain skin care ingredients
  3. Shave the treatment area one to two days before your appointment
  4. Wear loose, comfortable clothing on the day of your procedure

What to Expect During Treatment

Laser hair removal with Bare HR is a relatively quick and simple procedure. Thanks to the device’s unique capabilities, even large areas can be completed in a matter of minutes. However, individual treatment times may vary depending on your needs and goals.

Before treatment, the skin will be cleansed. Then, you’ll be given special eyewear to protect your eyes against any harmful light emitted by the laser. Once you’re ready, your provider will move the device around the face or body, where it will emit three different wavelengths of energy simultaneously. You may feel some warmth or a slight snapping sensation as the energy penetrates the skin, but the versatile handpiece contains built-in, constant cooling to ensure your comfort.

Each ultra-short laser pulse has a duration of just one second and can treat multiple hairs at once, while also being able to target areas as precise as one square centimeter. This allows us to effectively cover large treatment areas or zero in on your specific concerns.

Downtime & Recovery

After your laser hair removal, the skin may appear red or irritated in treated areas, similar to a mild sunburn. You may also notice some swelling, but this is normal and should subside quickly, usually within a few days. During this time, you can apply ice packs or a steroid cream to reduce discomfort.

In the weeks following your treatment, it’s important to use a broad SPF 30 or higher sunscreen in treated areas and avoid direct sun exposure, as your skin will be less resistant to harmful UV rays and may burn easier than usual. Other than these considerations, there is no downtime or recovery required after a laser hair removal treatment — you’ll be able to immediately resume all normal activities.

Bare HR™ Results

You’ll begin to notice a reduction in unwanted hair after your very first treatment. However, it takes time for more dramatic results to develop. Treated hairs will begin to fall out and shed over the next couple weeks, and further growth will become thinner and less noticeable.

Because hair growth occurs in stages, multiple sessions are required to ensure the greatest number of hair follicles are targeted at the right time. Most patients need six treatments to eliminate new growth and achieve a permanent 80 to 90% reduction in unwanted hair. Our team will develop a customized treatment plan based on your needs to ensure that you achieve smooth, silky skin for years to come. If needed, an occasional touch-up appointment can quickly target any new growth that occurs in previously treated areas.
