How Laser Hair Removal Works

Say goodbye to painful w axing, plucking or the discomfort of ingrown hairs and say hello to silky, smooth skin!

Laser targets hair follicle

The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the energy produced by the laser, resulting in its destruction and preventing the hair from ever regenerating. To achieve this result, the hair follicle must contain the needed pigment to absorb the laser’s energy. As a general rule, hair must be darker than the surrounding skin in order to be effectively treated. White, grey, blonde and red hair is non-responsive.

Hair Reduction

Once we destroy a hair follicle, it will never produce hair again. Any remaining hair follicles will produce hairs that are lighter and thinner, requiring much less attention than before. We offer  clearance of roughly 85-99%, with some variation from person to person.

Hair Growth Cycle

It is important to note that lasers treat hair follicles best when they are in their active state of growth. Because hair has three phases of development, Anagen (the growing phase), Catagen (the resting phase) and Telogen (the shedding phase) not all hairs are simultaneously growing. As a result, multiple treatments are needed to achieve the highest levels of permanent hair removal.

Superior Results

Results typically range in reduction of hair is 85-99% of all treated hairs. On average, 5-6 sessions spaced roughly 8 weeks apart are needed to achieve such optimal results. Individual response can certainly vary, and we will explore expectations with you once we understand your skin type and hair characteristics. New hair follicles may form over time as a result of aging, hormonal changes, and individual genetics. For these reasons, some clients elect to schedule annual touch-up treatments to maintain their results.

For demonstration purposes only.

We use the most sophisticated, advanced and powerful laser systems in the industry.

If you compare laser hair removal clinics, you’ll find that every provider claims to have the best technology. What the vast majority of clinics don’t do, however, is tell you why. Our solution is the EpiCare System by Light Age. The EpiCare system is the most sophisticated and technologically-advanced FDA approved Alexandrite laser on the market today – ensuring the highest levels of efficacy. As an Alexandrite Laser, it produces a 755 nm wavelength laser beam that most strongly targets melanin in the hair shaft while safely avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue.

Our EpiCare-Zenith System

Our EpiCare Duo system provides a high powered Nd: YAG laser that produces a slightly longer wavelength at 1064 nm. With it, we can safely and effectively treat individuals with very dark or tanned skin.

The EpiCare system incorporates many industry firsts, permitting targeting of both coarse and fine hair while maximizing safety margins. We enjoy its consistent beam profile, while also taking advantage of unmatched power and speed capabilities.

Cooling methods for comfort

To ensure the highest level of comfort, we couple our EpiCare systems with the most effective cooling devices on the market – The Artek system by Thermotek as well as the Cryo 6 by Zimmer. They are rated as the safest stand alone epidermal cooling devices by many doctors – and we agree.

Unlike other cooling methods, such as contact cooling, cryogen spray (oftentimes advertised as a DCD), or ice packs, the cold air cools the skin before, during, and after treatment. With the cold air cooling systems, safety is further increased by minimizing thermal warming within the epidermis and greatly reduces the typical redness or swelling sometimes associated with laser hair removal.

Large 18mm spot size

Moreover, our system is equipped with the largest spot size in the industry, 18mm (about the diameter of a quarter), and it has the highest available speed and power in the industry.

As a result, treatments are quick and effective. If another provider isn’t using the EpiCare system, they cannot claim to have a more powerful platform than we do.

Simply stated, Clearstone Laser Hair Removal, through its use of the EpiCare and cold air cooling platforms, provides the most effective and safest laser hair removal treatments possible.

Our Laser Technology

Simply stated, for most skin types, Alexandrite lasers provide the very best in permanent hair removal. For individuals with darker skin and black hair, high powered Nd: YAG lasers work the very best. Alexandrite lasers are more effective than IPL and Diode lasers because they can more effectively target the melanin within each hair follicle while safely avoiding injury to the surrounding skin. It’s a process called Selective Photothermolysis. Claims that Diode or Intense Pulsated Light (IPL) sources are superior methods have not been supported by unbiased clinical research. (Please click here to gain the citations to the reputable journal articles affirming the superiority of the Alexandrite platform.)

As we specialize in laser hair removal, we have identified the most advanced Alexandrite and YAG platforms so that we can deliver the very best in permanent hair reduction.

Your safety is important to us

Safe and effective treatment is achieved by destroying hair follicles without causing damage to the epidermis (the tissue making up the skin composition surrounding the hair shaft). In selecting optimal treatment settings, the technician must balance many variables, which is why the right laser platform combined with a highly experienced staff is essential.

At Clearstone, we pride ourselves in a highly trained and experienced staff. In fact, we have performed tens of thousands of treatments. It’s how we set ourselves apart. Our laser technology also allows us to distinguish our services. We are able to highly customize energy levels given your skin tone, hair coarseness, and hair color. By doing so, we are able to best select optimal levels of energy to destroy the hair follicle while maintaining FDA approved safety parameters that are designed to prevent injury to the epidermis. As such, our certified laser professionals coupled with our selection of laser technology ensures that you receive the highest value, safety, and quality of treatment in today’s laser hair removal market.
