Our Laser Hair Removal Equipment
Our Dual-Laser hair removal technology, The Polylase LP, is one of just two laser hair removal devices in all of Brooklyn to provide permanent hair reduction using state-of-the-art technology (and ours is newer and more advanced than our competitor’s model – just sayin’). 🙂 This revolutionary technology is highly effective in treating a wide range of skin types and colors. However, tanning or use of a self-tanner during the series of treatments is discouraged as this can compromise the skin and result in less successful hair reduction. Unlike older less advanced laser hair removal devices, our clients don’t have to wait for their hair to grow out in order to get treatments. Instead, our clients are advised to first shave off (but NOT PULL out) all the hair from the areas they want treated and then come in for laser hair reduction. This process might sound a bit counter-intuitive, but it actually leads to longer-lasting and more effective hair removal.
The Polylase LP hair removal system used at Lenella Laser Spa has been cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction, which means it can reduce unwanted hair by as much as 85% or even more. It actually has multiple FDA-Cleared applications! Please be aware that there is no machine in existence that can guarantee 100% permanent hair removal, since some hair follicles may continue to produce fine, light hairs (after doing a hair removal procedure) that may not respond to additional laser treatments.
The Polylase LP system is recognized in the industry as the “gold standard” in laser hair removal and provides 2 modes of operation:
1. The 755nm Alexandrite mode provides less pain and high efficacy for hair removal on light skin. This wavelength is also indicated for removal of age/sun spots (lentigines), purple veins, port wine stains and birth marks.
2. The 1064nm Nd:YAG mode provides the advantages of safe hair removal on dark/tanned skin. The deeper penetration of the 1064nm wavelength provides maximum efficacy for hair removal in deep follicles (e.g. man’s beard, woman’s bikini line, etc.).
The Polylase LP uses a patented hand-piece to maximize our clients’ comfort and safety. Treatments are relatively comfortable for our clients and require little to no downtime afterward.
