Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair from almost any part of your body. Unlike alternatives such as shaving, waxing or electrolysis, you get permanent reduction with laser treatment. Six treatments are generally needed for optimal results. The FDA states that professional laser hair removal provides permanent hair reduction by causing long term stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing.

What is the laser hair removal process?

A beam of light is passed over the skin, disabling every hair follicle in the area being treated. Fusion uses laser technology, administered by trained and medically supervised staff.

What type of results can I expect from laser hair removal?

You can expect significant permanent hair reduction to the point that temporary hair removal methods are seldom, if ever, necessary. There are factors that can effect result, such as: hormonal changes, hair color and skin tone. Some clients may need a few additional treatments in order to achieve their personal level of desired results.

How do I determine my skin type? Why is that important for my laser hair removal treatments?
Fusion’s qualified laser hair removal specialists can help you determine your skin type. Fusion MedSpa uses the Fitzpatrick scale. The Fitzpatrick scale is a method of skin typing that measures the reaction of different skin types to the sun’s rays.
