At Belleza Med Spa we specialize in laser hair removal and offer a more effective solution for removal of unwanted hair in Albuquerque.
We use the Elite laser to target unwanted hair. This cutting edge technology is being used around the world as a more permanent solution to reduce unwanted body and scalp hair.
Traditional hair reduction methods — shaving, waxing, tweezing and creams — are time consuming and short lasting.
The Elite laser targets multiple hairs at one time and gives permanent hair reduction. The Elite laser has been approved by the FDA for all Fitzpatrick skin types and is the most comprehensive hair removal system available today which allows Dr. Eva Pacheco to treat the broadest range of clients, regardless of skin type.
Laser hair removal Albuquerque, NM – How does it work?
Heat emitted by the laser targets the color in the hair follicle also known as melanin. Permanent hair reduction involves heating the root of the hair. By heating (cooking) the root of the hair, we can destroy the cells that produce the hair. The root of the hair acts like a “lighting rod” for the laser. The heat of the laser travels down the follicle and destroys the root, without any damage to the surrounding tissue.
How many Albuquerque laser hair removal treatments will I need?
Since hair grows in cycles, multiple treatments will be necessary, usually 4 to 6 laser treatments. The duration of the cycle (i.e. interval between treatments) will vary, but typically 4 weeks are required for the face, 6 weeks for the rest of the body and 8 weeks for legs.
What areas can be treated using our Albuquerque laser hair removal treatment?
All areas of the body can be treated for unwanted hair. This includes hair on legs, arms, armpits, bikini line, pubic area, face (except for eye area), neck, back, even head hair can be removed.
How long does the procedure take?
It depends on the area being treated. It will typically take 15 minutes to treat the underarms and up to an hour for legs.
Is it painful?
